Women aren’t the only ones who seek out our docgtors for their expertise in cosmetic breast surgery. To the contrary, men are often referred to our practice when a hormone condition leads to gynecomastia, or enlargement of breast tissue in males. If medication fails to address the problem, surgical options include liposuction and mastectomy.

Many men aged 50-80 years old are affected by gynecomastia, and most of the time, the condition can be addressed without surgery. But when surgical intervention is called for, our providers are the “go-to” resource for effective treatment. Contact us at 727.270.9927 or fill out an appointment request form here to arrange for a consultation with our providers as soon as possible.
