What causes males to develop breasts?
The cause is currently unknown for most men who develop breasts. Common thinking may lead you to believe that men who are overweight are more likely to develop breasts, but there isn’t a strong correlation there, either. The fact is, it can develop in any male during puberty.
What’s involved in the surgery?
Surgery to remove unwanted breast tissue for men involves removing overdeveloped glandular tissue and/or fat, then sculpting the chest to a predetermined desired contour. The surgery leaves minimal scarring.
Depending on the amount of tissue needing to be removed, in addition to how long Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis expects the procedure to take, you’ll either be under local anesthesia with sedation, or general anesthesia for the procedure.
