Castellon, MD, offers gynecomastia surgery and other types of plastic surgery for men who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.

WHAT IS GYNECOMASTIA?

Gynecomastia is a medical condition that causes enlarged breasts in adult men. The condition normally begins in puberty, and as an adolescent boy gets older, the condition normally resolves without medical intervention. In some cases, though, the enlargement remains into adulthood. Due to the nature of the enlargement, diet and exercise cannot restore the man’s breast size.

Gynecomastia surgery is most often the only option for men with enlarged breasts. Specializing in gynecomastia surgery Melbourne board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Castellon uses liposuction and other specific techniques to give your chest a masculine appearance.
