Male Breast Reduction Procedure:
In some cases, especially in puberty-aged boys, male breasts will resolve itself spontaneously. More often, though, surgery is required for cosmetic or psychological reasons. Treatment for breast reduction depends on several factors. For example, if the male breasts are drug-induced, all that may be needed is discontinuing the agent or drug. The procedure requires a strategically placed incision which allows Dr. Sullivan to surgically remove excess breast tissue.
