Breast reduction surgery is not just for women. Men may also seek a reduction to reduce the effects of gynecomastia, a condition that causes the swelling of breast tissue. Caused by a hormonal imbalance, gynecomastia is not a serious health issue but is one that can lead to significant embarrassment for men. Sometimes, the condition goes away on its own, but some men require surgery to remove the swollen breast tissue. Surgical treatment options may include a mastectomy, which removes the gland tissue of the breast, or liposuction, which removes fat while leaving the gland tissue intact.
These surgeries can give men suffering from gynecomastia a boost of confidence, but they are often expensive. Luckily, through medical tourism, men can now seek affordable surgical treatment at hospitals around the world.
