Male Breast Reduction
What Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
The correction of gynecomastia can improve the appearance of your upper body and produce a more masculine chest contour. The first step in the process is a consultation with Dr. Rast. Dr. Rast is one of the best 5-star rated plastic surgeons in Kansas City.
Male breast reduction surgery, also known as a correction of gynecomastia, removes excess breast fat, skin, and glandular tissue to help you achieve a chest appearance that’s harmonious with your body. This results in a more masculine chest contour. Gynecomastia is not usually a direct result of excess fat, contrary to popular belief. It may be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, disease, or the use of certain drugs.
Gynecomastia can impair your ability to lead both an active and confident life. Breast reduction surgery for men is a highly individualized decision and should be done to improve your own emotional and physical health, not to comply with someone else’s desires.
