Men who have excess breast and glandular tissue suffer from the medical condition known as gynecomastia and may be good candidates for male breast reduction surgery by Dr. Zuckerman, a permanent method of addressing these issues. While not often discussed, this condition is relatively common, affecting up to half the male population and is the second most commonly performed male plastic surgery procedure. It can occur in both those who are overweight and those who are not. If you experience anxiety about your appearance that prevents you from participating in normal activities such as sports, gym exercise, or simply removing your shirt in front of others, you may be a good candidate for this surgery.
