Excessive breast tissue in males, also known as gynecomastia, is a relatively common condition marked by symmetrical or asymmetrical enlargement of the breast tissue. At Grossman Dermatology, we have perfected a discreet treatment to permanently reduce male breast tissue.
Who is a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery?
If you are bothered by the appearance of your chest due to excessive male breast tissue, you are likely a candidate for this procedure. Ideal candidates are males over the age of 18, who are in good overall health.
How old do you have to be to get gynecomastia surgery?
Although there’s no “set” age, the average age you must be to undergo gynecomastia surgery is 18. It is best to wait until your body has finished developing since more breast tissue can develop if the procedure is done too early.
