Why Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) New York City?
Breasts are one of the defining characteristics of women. However, male breast formation is more common than you may realize. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, up to 50% of men in the United States experience some degree of gynecomastia during their lifetime. It is extremely common in teenage boys, and as you can imagine, this can have a significant negative effect on them emotionally.
Male breasts may form from the use of some prescription medications, recreational drug use, hormonal imbalances, genetic predisposition, cancers, and weight changes. Most commonly, though, is no specific reason at all. In all cases, the result is the same: enlarged and firm tissue that gives the appearance of breasts.
Diet and exercise to reduce fat and tone chest muscles may improve the appearance slightly, but will be ineffective at reducing the glandular breast tissue. Also, if your chest enlargement is excess skin from weight loss, then additional diet and exercise may actually make it look worse. The treatment is usually a male chest reduction, or gynecomastia surgery.
