Many men suffer from gynecomastia, a condition which results in excess skin, fat, and sometimes even glandular tissue in the breasts, giving them an enlarged appearance. Gynecomastia typically begins in adolescence and can give men feelings of extreme self-consciousness. The condition can also lead to serious psychological problems like depression. Male breast reduction surgery can recontour the chest area by removing excess tissue and fat. The procedure is designed to give men a tighter, flatter, and more contoured chest. Either direct excision of the fatty tissue or liposuction may be used in order to achieve optimal results.
