Could You Be A Candidate For Male Breast Reduction?

Male Breast Reduction - William Franckle MD FACSIf you’re a male suffering from gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue, you may be eligible for corrective surgery. Those with this condition can suffer from emotional and psychological distress, and may have problems being comfortable in their own skin. By electing to have this procedure, patients can take action against their insecurities. Breast reduction procedures for men require patients to meet certain criteria.

While this procedure can reduce the amount of tissue in the breasts, it should not be seen as a weight-loss solution. Breast reduction for men should only be sought out when alternative treatments fail. Candidates should be physically healthy and maintain a normal weight. Males who have life-threatening illness are not seen as good candidates. These medical conditions can cause patients to heal improperly and put the patient at risk for complications. The same is true for smokers and drug users.

Additionally, a candidate’s breast development must be stabilized. Because of this, it is advised that adolescents wait before having gynecomastia surgery. While they might benefit now from the procedure, further operations may be needed in the future should they continue to develop and grow.

As with any procedure, patients must have realistic expectations. Those with a positive outlook and specific goals are often the most happy with the results. Before electing to have male breast reduction surgery, we suggest discussing your situation with a surgeon. Together, you and your doctor can decide which treatment option would be best for achieving your goals.
