Today, men of all ages are choosing plastic surgery for aesthetic purposes, whether to achieve a trimmer waistline or a rejuvenated face surgically or with injectables. Another procedure of interest to many men is gynecomastia surgery, otherwise known as male breast reduction.

Gynecomastia is a common condition characterized by enlarged or overdeveloped breasts in men. In severe cases, the weight of excess breast tissue can cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola. This condition can occur at any age and be caused by a variety of factors, including heredity, hormonal changes, obesity or the use of certain drugs.

Gynecomastia can impair one’s self-confidence and cause emotional discomfort, as some men may avoid certain physical activities and intimacy to hide the condition.

During surgery for gynecomastia, Dr. Cashio can reduce breast size and remove any excess skin, as well as flatten and enhance the chest contours. The procedure can also improve the position and size of the areola, if needed.
