Gynecomastia

Arnold S. Breitbart, MD

In Manhattan, Male Breast Reduction Surgery is An Option

For both boys and many men, gynecomastia can be an embarrassing condition. Gynecomastia is a condition where boys or men have excessive fatty tissue in the chest area, resulting in a breast-like appearance. While the condition is not painful, it can cause social embarrassment, resulting in awkwardness, an unwillingness to participate in social activities, and a loss of self-confidence.
In Manhattan, male breast reduction surgery offers a pleasing alternative by removing fatty or glandular tissue and thus creating a more masculine shape.
