Enlarged male breasts – medically known as gynecomastia – are an extremely sensitive subject for men who suffer from this condition. Men with gynecomastia often feel a great deal of shame about their bodies, and it is a topic that they rarely feel comfortable discussing with others. Gynecomastia is usually the result of excess fatty tissue, a hormonal imbalance, or a combination of the two. Unfortunately, diet and exercise can only go so far in helping men with gynecomastia trim and tone their chests. Fortunately, surgical options are available. If you suffer from gynecomastia and would like information on male breast reduction in, contact Michigan Plastic Surgery in East Lansing to schedule a complimentary consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lee H. Colony.

In some cases, Dr. Colony may suggest a combination of both procedures in order to achieve the best results.
