Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breast tissue, is a fairly common concern that can occur in boys and men of almost any age, though it is more often seen in adolescent boys. Typically, gynecomastia resolves on its own with time, but it has been shown to last through adulthood. While this condition doesn’t present any harm toward your health and wellness, it has a way of affecting your self-confidence and quality of life.

What causes gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia can be described as excess localized fat or breast tissue in one or both of the breasts. It is often caused by:
- Specific prescribed medications
- Hormone imbalances
- Obesity or overweightness
This condition can not only impair self-confidence but may even cause some men to go the extra mile to conceal their chests or avoid certain physical activities. If gyneomastia has impacted your quality of life, we commonly correct male breast reduction through 3-D Liposculpsure, an advanced procedure that implements fat reduction and radiofrequency to craft a slimmer, tighter complexion.
What can I expect in terms of recovery?
Each patient’s recovery will be based on the extent of their procedure. We generally recommend that our patients set aside at least 7-10 days from work and usual activities to ensure an ideal recovery. We will strongly advise to avoid certain activities such as strenuous exercise for a couple weeks to avoid any compromises to your health and results from your procedure. It may take about 3-6 months for the treated areas to fully heal and for any bruising to fade.
