Male Breast Surgery
Breast gland enlargement in males ( gynecomastia ) is most often caused by hormonal imbalance experienced during puberty and by some medications. This can result in large breasts or nipples which can be very embarrassing, limiting the patient’s willingness to take his shirt off. All ages are affected.  Treatment most often involves an incision around the lower half of the nipple through which the extra breast tissue is removed, and is often supplemented by liposuction. Occasionally, liposuction alone can solve the problem. General anesthesia is used, and surgical time is about two hours to do both breasts. No overnight stay in the hospital is needed.
