Gynecomastia Breast Reduction in Young Men, Learn about surgical options during puberty, adolescence, and teenage years.
Gynecomastia is a very common condition.Male breast enlargement can be embarrassing and of major concern to those suffering the condition. Most puberty related gynecomastia is often transient and resolves on itself. "How long do I need to wait?" and "How old do I have to be before surgery?" are common questions for Dr. Bermant.
Timing for male breast reduction depends on many factors. How how long should a young man have to live with large breasts?
Massive male breasts or enlargement present over 2 years are indications for surgery. Very large breasts can be such a problem that early surgery may be appropriate. Stable breast size is preferred. If the breasts are still growing, recurrence after surgery is possible. Secondary surgery to re contour the breasts may be necessary and it is easier to remove than put back. It is always prudent to shape something after it has evolved into its final shape than too early.
