While gynecomastia isn’t a serious health problem, the condition can be a source of psychological discomfort. Males with the condition often feel embarrassed about their bodies and can go to great lengths to hide themselves, even to the point of avoiding intimacy.
Gynecomastia can be resolved with male breast reduction. Male breast reduction may also just involve liposuction, depending on the patient’s body. When glandular breast tissue and excess skin need to be removed, surgical incisions are made around the nipple-areola complex. Consulting with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bartlett will you help clear up confusion or concerns about gynecomastia.
