Gynecomastia refers to over-developed or enlarged male breasts. Men may develop gynecomastia as the result of significant weight gain, hormonal changes, genetic factors or the use of certain drugs. Dr. Lacerna offers gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction. During the surgery, she removes excess breast tissue and flattens the chest’s contours to make it look more masculine.
Candidates for Male Breast Reduction
Ideal candidates for male breast reduction are men in good general health who are unhappy with their enlarged breasts. Candidates should not smoke or have any medical conditions that could impair the healing process. In addition, they should be of a relatively normal weight, and their breast development should be stable. The best candidates have reasonable expectations of surgery — in essence, they expect improvement, not perfection.
