In the paragraphs below, the highly regarded Portland plastic surgery specialist Dr. DeMars explains male breast reduction surgery and describes men who might be candidates for it.
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek words for "woman-like breasts." Though this oddly named condition is rarely talked about, it is actually quite common. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men. It may affect only one breast or both. Though certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment, there is no known cause in the vast majority of cases.
Male Breast Reduction: Is it for you?
For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast reduction surgery in Portland can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin. The result is a flatter, firmer and better contoured chest.
In addition to being a highly skilled gynecomastia surgery specialist, Dr. DeMars is also a renowned Portland breast implants surgery, breast lift and breast reduction surgeon. Please visit the respective pages to learn more about these procedures.
