Excess breast tissue and skin in men can be the result of a common condition called gynecomastia.

Find relief through breast reduction
Overly large breasts can create physical and psychological discomfort for both men and women. Breast reduction is a common and very effective remedy that reduces excess tissue and fat. The procedure makes breasts more proportionate to your body frame, providing relief from back, neck and shoulder pain and even discomfort from the strain of bra-straps that cause indentations.
