Male Breast Reduction – Gynecomastia

Male breast reduction helps to restore a more masculine and athletic appearance by removing excess breast tissue and fat from the chest area.

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by over-developed or enlarged breasts, common in men of all ages. In most cases, the cause is unknown but in some, it can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease, or the use of certain drugs. Male breast reduction surgery removes this excess tissue from the chest area.

Why choose Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self-confidence. This surgery reduces “male breasts” by removing excess breast tissue and fat in the chest area to restore a more masculine and athletic looking body.

Gynecomastia results

Our doctors will focus on delivering a satisfying lasting result that is significant, natural-looking, with an enhanced shape that is immediately noticeable after surgery. While scars are permanent, these are generally small and concealed in the natural contours of the chest.

Our goal is to help you achieve an improved upper body that can help to enhance self-image and confidence. If gynecomastia was caused by the use of certain prescription medications, drugs (including steroids or weight gain supplements), please be aware that you must be fully free from these substances and remain at a stable weight in order to maintain your results.

What to expect during Gynecomastia surgery

Your plastic surgeon will make an inconspicuous incision on the edge of the areola or in the underarm area. They will then remove the excess fatty tissue, skin, and glandular tissue from the sides and bottom of the breast.

In cases where gynecomastia is primarily the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction techniques alone may be used. There are various liposuction techniques that may be used; your plastic surgeon will determine the technique most appropriate to your case prior to your procedure.

Recovery After Gynecomastia Surgery

After surgery, you will likely experience some discomfort, which can easily be controlled with medication. You will also have some bruising and swelling in the breast area. Most swelling will dissipate in the first few weeks. To help reduce swelling, an elastic pressure garment may be worn for one to two weeks.
