Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.
Gynecomastia is characterized by:
- Excess localized fat
- Excess glandular tissue development
- Sometimes excess breast skin
- Presence unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)
This patient had avoided any sort of activity that involved taking his shirt off, and developed gynecomastia at a very young age.
Dr. Kerr was able to reduce the appearance of his enlarged breast (gynecomastia) by using a combination of Smartlipo and PAL.
This patient was extremely pleased with his results and the minimal amount of downtime after his procedure. He was ready to hit the beach in no time!
