Peer acceptance is a basic desire of all teens, but young people with physical differences such as large breast on a female or “man boobs” on a male, also known as gynecomastia, may feel especially self-conscious. By having a breast reduction, teen females can start to feel more confident. A breast reduction is an out- patient procedure. It’s usually about a four hour procedure. And recovery time is about a week. Some Breast Reductions, are sometimes covered by your health insurance. Gynecomastia is also an out- patient procedure. This procedure is usually a hour and a half long. More extensive male breast reduction may take longer. Recovery time is usually one to two weeks depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. Gynecomastia in certain cases may be covered through health insurance. These procedures help boost confidence during these critical years of development. Teens can focus on school, sports, socialize and have fun.
