Breast Reduction for Men in San Antonio

San Antonio Gynecomastia Male breast reduction surgery is designed to correct oversized breasts on a man. Getting "man boobs" can make you feel unattractive and can give you a low self-esteem.

Some men develop larger than normal breasts from simply being overweight. Male breasts are composed of fatty tissue stored over the pectoral muscles and with weight gain can become large, just as a woman's breast size can vary with weight. A common myth is that you can spot reduce your man boobs, but unfortunately, you can't pick and choose where your body is going to shed its fat. Although you can try diet and exercise, it isn't always enough.

Another reason men develop large breasts is due to a medical condition called Gynecomastia. This is a hormonal condition in which the body produces an increased amount of estrogen and a decreased amount of testosterone. Gynecomastia can also happen as the result of taking certain medications that affect hormone levels. It can also occur if someone is suffering from a testicular tumor, which causes estrogen production to significantly increase. To treat this problem, medical advice should be sought. Most often, the patient will be taken off the particular medication or will be given anti-estrogen treatment, but surgery may be necessary if the problem does not improve.

Surgery for Gynecomastia most often involves liposuction of the breasts. In some extreme cases, a surgical reduction may be necessary, as there may be excessive skin in addition to fatty tissue. A private consultation appointment with Dr. Young can help assess what method is best for you.
