Dr. Peterson has performed many breast reductions for both men and women. Although historically more common in women, breast reduction is growing in popularity among men whose oversized breasts are unsightly or uncomfortable.

The medical term for this procedure is gynecomastia. Although this condition is rarely talked about, it’s actually quite common. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40-60% of men. It may affect only one breast or both. For men who feel self-conscious about appearance, this surgery can help.

Gynecomastia surgery removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer and better contoured.
