Male Breast Reduction
Male Breast Reduction in Orlando, Florida
As a result of today's competitive job market, one study revealed that 84% of men surveyed believed that physical attractiveness was important for power and success on the job. At Florida Cosmetic Surgery Center, our plastic surgeons perform male breast reduction surgery for patients in the Orlando area to treat Gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia, a medical word from the Greek words for "woman-like breasts," affects
one out of every ten men. Enlarged breasts on young boys last only a few years and are generally resolved by age eighteen. Enlarged breasts on a man can be uncomfortable, as well as socially and psychologically devastating.
Gynecomastia may be associated with obesity, hormonal metabolism imbalance, liver disease or medicinal causes. Prior to choosing a surgical solution to gynecomastia, a period of diet and exercise is recommended. Should that fail, male breast reduction is performed by our plastic surgeons for patients with this condition.

He did so with extreme confidence, skill, and always open to questions throughout the experience. His staff were always extraordinarily professional, helpful, sensitive, and discrete. Dr. Ward is a rare find."FCSC Patient
