Gynecomastia is the medical name for female-like breasts on males. This condition can be caused by aging, genetic factors, hormone fluctuations, weight gain, and the use of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications. Regardless of its cause, gynecomastia is an often embarrassing and emasculating condition – and one that may not respond to diet and exercise alone.
If you have not been able to achieve desired results through diet and exercise, it may be time to consider male breast reduction. Board-certified Pasadena plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole welcomes an opportunity to meet with you free of charge to discuss male breast reduction and to help you determine if this procedure is ideal for your needs.
Am I a Candidate for Male Breast Reduction?
Good candidates for male breast reduction should be nonsmokers who are in generally good health and close to their goal weight. This procedure may need to be combined with other body contouring options for optimal results, which can impact candidacy for some patients. The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for this or another body sculpting procedure is through a confidential and comprehensive one-on-one consultation with Dr. O’Toole.
