Gynecomastia Helps Men Who Are Suffering from Enlarged Male Breasts
Hormonal imbalance and chronic medical conditions can cause enlarged male breasts
Although cosmetic breast surgeries are known to be popular among women, breast reduction has also become very popular among the male population. In 2015, male breast reduction, also known as gynecomastia, ranked third in the ten most popular cosmetic procedures in the UAE. The procedure can help to restore a more firm and masculine appearance to the chest.
“Although certain drugs such as anabolic steroids, medications containing estrogen and alcohol, and medical conditions including cancer and impaired liver function may cause or contribute to enlarged male breasts, it is widely accepted that a large percentage of cases are caused by unknown conditions,” explains Dr. Trelles, plastic and laser surgeon at state-of-the-art dentistry, plastic and aesthetic laser surgery clinic Vilafortuny.
