Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat and glandular tissue from the male breasts.

There are some causes for the appearance of enlarged breasts in men including but not limited to:

  • Medications
  • Genetics
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Health Conditions
  • Obesity
  • Herbal Products

Reasons for considering Male Breast Reduction:

Male breast reduction is a consistently successful treatment for the enlargement of breast tissues, known as gynecomastia.  It has long-lasting, often permanent results.  Some reasons you may want to consider surgery:

  • Almost immediate improvement
  • Minimal scarring
  • More confidence
  • Healthier body image

General Procedure

The procedure for treating gynecomastia is performed with liposuction after a local anesthetic with sedation, or general anesthesia has been administered.

Using a small incision made on each side of your chest the surgeon will remove excess fat and glandular tissue while sculpting your chest contour to match your natural body type.

Recovery Process

After the surgery, you should notice instant improvement.  You may feel sore for a few days after the procedure though pain is typically minimal.  A compression garment will help you heal and provide comfort.

Most patients are ready to return to work a few days after a male breast reduction procedure.
