Male Breast Reduction Honolulu is a cosmetic procedure to reduce excess breast tissue in men. The condition of developing excess breast tissue in men is known as Gynecomastia and is actually quite common. Many men as early as puberty develop the condition, though it is not entirely known why. Some men will outgrow the condition of Gynecomastia, while for other men the excess tissue may be permanent unless surgically removed. While Gynecomastia poses no threat to your health, many men feel self-conscious of their chest appearance particularly in intimate situations or at the gym.
The Male Breast Reduction Honolulu surgery may be done a couple different ways depending on the needs of each patient. In some cases the Male Breast Reduction Honolulu may be achieved simply through liposuction, while in other cases a small incision at the lower border of the areola may be need to remove the glandular tissues and sculpt the shape of the chest into the more masculine desired appearance.
