What is gynecomastia treatment?

As a man, Dr. Markelov understands just how concerning enlarged male breasts can be. Body image issues impact everyone regardless of gender, and men deserve to look and feel good in their bodies.  Enlarged male breasts, or gynecomastia, is a genetic condition that no amount of diet or exercise can fix. Only surgery can restore a balanced, masculine physique. Some fast facts about gynecomastia include:

  • It is a genetic condition that causes men to grow feminine-looking breasts
  • Surgery is the only solution; diet and exercise do not help

Gynecomastia surgery removes excessive breast tissue. Dr. Markelov, specialist in male cosmetic surgery, sculpts the chest to appear streamlined and toned, carefully contouring the area to highlight existing musculature. There is minimal downtime and no noticeable scarring.
