Gynecomastia – Houston – Male Breast Reduction
Many males experience abnormal growth of chest tissue during puberty or other stages of life. The condition is called gynecomastia and it’s very common. Gynecomastia is the swelling of breast tissue in males and is thought to be caused by hormonal imbalances of estrogen and testosterone. Gynecomastia develops in many males but typically resolves within two years of its appearance. When the condition lingers, it can become a concern and source of body-image issues.
In the case of persistent gynecomastia, male breast reduction can be an ideal solution. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andrew Lyos, who will examine your body and make the appropriate recommendations. Male breast reduction can resolve problems associated with gynecomastia such as swollen breast tissue, tenderness, pain and nipple discharge.
