Gynecomastia offered by Dr. Crofts in Utah
Some males experience abnormal enlargement of the breast due to hypertrophy or from excess fat in the area. If not addressed in childhood, this can lead to some very distressing psychological problems.
Interestingly, 40 percent of young males will experience some degree of gynecomastia between the age of 13 and 15. If the issue hasn’t resolved itself in two years, we recommend surgical treatment.
Most patients are treated with liposuction to remove the fatty tissue. Any glandular nub or breast bud that remains will be excised directly from the tissue via a small excision. Postoperatively, patients wear a compression wrap for six weeks. Click here to see our gynecomastia before and after gallery.
