Male Breast Reduction - Gynecomastia Treatment in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles

Posted Nov 18 2012 7:24am

Treatment of Gynecomastia in Beverly Hills  has become one of the fastest growing  Plastic Surgery procedures  in the entire Southern California. In  Los Angeles Male Breast Reduction  has become a necessity for thousands of men who suffer from Gynecomastia or male breast growth.

Gynecomastia  is the development of “ woman-like breasts ” in  men. Abnormal  glandular breast  overgrowth, or  breast hypertrophy, afflicts as many as two thirds of  adolescent males  and one out of every six  grown person  in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. The disorder’s prevalence is reflected by the  American Society of Plastic Surgery ’s  ranking of the  Surgical Treatment of Gynecomastia  as one of the top five  cosmetic surgery procedures  performed on  men.


No longer do  Los Angeles men with  Gynecomastia  have to hide their chests or be ridiculed for having “man-boobs”. In fact,  Beverly Hills Male Breast Reduction  is being increasingly performed for all groups of men who suffer from  Gynecomastia in Los Angeles. They no longer need be embarrassed when wearing form-fitting shirts, t-shirts, or even avoid take off their shirts at the pool or the beach!


Breast tissue naturally grows in all  adolescent boys  during  normal development  as a result of hormonal changes. It is estimated that as many as 65% of teenage boys experience  enlarged breast tissue  or  Gynecomastia. For the fortunate majority of these boys,  Pubertal Gynecomastia  resolves in a matter of months, or with the end of adolescence. For a significant portion, however – an estimated 10-15%, the symptoms remain through men life.


Unlike  Pubertal Gynecomastia,  male-onset Gynecomastia  can be caused by a range of things. The potential causes of  Gynecomastia  in men include some common  medications, Anabolic steroids, herbal or growth supplements, natural or synthetic estrogen hormone derivatives, marijuana, alcohol abuse, chronic liver failure, and renal failure.  There are also some  tumors  that secrete  female hormones  which stimulate breast gland growth in males. Therefore, it is important that newly recognized  men-onset Gynecomastia  be investigated by an  endocrinologist  in order to rule out possible serious underlying causes.


Another cause of  Gynecomastia  which has recently become more prevalent is  Obesity. Fat cells, especially those in large numbers, convert the  male hormone testosterone  into  female hormone estrogen, which stimulates breast growth. With Aging some men experience a deficiency in  Testosterone  levels which leads to the development of  Gynecomastia.
