All About Gynecomastia in Columbus, OH

For many men, enlarged breast tissue can pose a serious obstacle to high self-esteem. Having abnormally large breasts may not be a health concern, but it can certainly make body confidence more challenging. The good news is that male breast reduction surgery, also known as gynecomastia, is available to help men overcome this physical challenge and get back to living a confident life. So if you believe you may suffer from gynecomastia and would like to learn more, here is what you should keep in mind:

Gynecomastia is Naturally Occurring

Although it can feel like an isolating condition, the truth is that gynecomastia is very common, especially among young men in the early years of puberty. Caused by an imbalance in hormones, gynecomastia may occur on one or both sides of the nipple and may cause soreness. If you are unsure as to whether you are experiencing gynecomastia, the best choice is to meet with a doctor who can advise you on the state of your health.

Gynecomastia Surgery is Affordable

Although gynecomastia may sound like a procedure that is out of your budget, at DePerro Plastic Surgery, we strive to help our patients achieve their aesthetic goals. As a result, we are proud to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through CareCredit®.

You Could Be a Candidate
