Male Breast Reduction
Excess breast development, or gynecomastia, occurs in up to half of all men and involves extra tissue and/or fat development in the breasts. Common causes for this condition include recent weight loss, heredity, or other factors. Gynecomastia causes many men to feel very self-conscious about their appearance and want to seek medical help. drName commonly performs surgical correction for gynecomastia to significantly reduce the excess fat or tissue in the male breasts, providing successful results for patients. Committed to the highest levels of safety and confidentiality, drName is available to help you address your concerns and give you the body you desire.
Highly skilled in this procedure, drName removes breast tissue and fatty tissue using exact small incisions to achieve the goal of a more appealing male chest profile. After major weight loss or in advanced cases, excess skin may also be removed. Any residual scarring will be as discreet and small as possible.
drName will conduct a thorough consultation to identify your needs and eliminate any abnormal condition that could be contributing to breast development. If you qualify, surgery is performed as a day-procedure and you should be able to return home by that evening. Recovery occurs during the first days and weeks, minimizing down time from work or school. Once healing is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy your new look and confidence boost.
During the procedure, excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed from the breasts. The surgeon may employ liposuction to eliminate excess fat, and in cases where glandular tissue is a significant concern, it is excised surgically. The goal is to achieve a flatter, firmer chest that aligns with typical male anatomy.
Men who experience gynecomastia, whether due to hormonal imbalances, genetics, or other factors, and are bothered by the appearance of their chest, may be suitable candidates for male breast reduction. Candidates should generally be in good health with stable weight.
Recovery after male breast reduction varies, but patients typically experience some swelling and discomfort initially. Compression garments may be recommended to aid in the healing process. Most individuals can return to light activities within a week, with a gradual return to more strenuous exercises over several weeks.
