Male Breast Reductionin Baltimore

I live in Baltimore and have abnormally large male breasts, can Male Breast Reduction help me?

Men at all ages can experience Gynecomastia, excess growth of glandular tissue in the male breast. Although there are many causes of Gynecomastia it can be treated with a one-time surgical procedure. The male breast reduction procedure is a commonly practiced surgery involving removing glandular breast tissue to effectively break down and reduce excess tissue from the breast area.

Am I a male breast reduction candidate?

There are multiple reasons you may be considering a male breast reduction. If your reasons match the following, you may be a candidate for male breast reduction surgery.

  • If you are reluctant to remove your shirt in public, to swim, to participate in sports or to exercise at a gym.
  • If you want to improve your overall body proportions.
  • If you experience psychological discomfort associated with male breasts.

What does the recovery after a male breast reduction look like at your Bel Air & Lutherville locations?

Recovery time varies per individual. Usually, if stiches are necessary they will be dissolved in about three week’s time, and while there may still be some swelling or bruising one can usually return to his normal lifestyle within two or three weeks.
