Male breast development is a normal aspect of puberty, and usually resolves shortly thereafter. Breast development is also common in older men, as the balance between testosterone and estrogen levels shifts.
In either case, the first procedure is to determine if there are any persistent hormonal irregularities. Once this has been ruled out, a surgical approach can be designed.
Small amounts of breast tissue can be removed surgically through an incision below the areola.
Breasts with larger amounts of tissue excess, or which have excess skin and fat will require a more complex procedure, similar to the breast reduction operation described earlier.
