The self esteem of men around adolescence is rather delicate. The over development of breast tissue in males around this time is incredibly common and can have a devastating effect on self esteem. Excess breast tissue in men is called gynecomastia. This condition not only effects adolescent men but also older men, men on medications, or men that have lost significant weight. In the vast majority of cases, the cause is unknown. The only known physical remedy is male breast reduction surgery.
Using male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Bartlett will remove excess tissue and fat from the chest. In some cases liposuction may be used to produce optimal results. Large nipples may also be reduced in size during breast reduction surgery. Dr. Bartlett finds that men who undergo breast reduction surgery are extremely satisfied with the procedure as results are often dramatic.
Boston board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bartlett understands that a sensitive condition such as gynecomasita can be emotionally damaging causing anxiety over simple tasks like taking a shirt off at the beach. Dr. Bartlett offers his patients a safe, confidential environment to discuss male breast reduction procedures.
