Plastic Surgery

A common concern among many men is overdeveloped glandular tissue or localized fat in the chest that results in the appearance of breasts. This condition, called gynecomastia, is seen in men of every age and is often the result of heredity or hormonal changes.

Male breast reduction surgery eliminates excessive male breast tissue. The ultimate goal of the procedure is to create a firmer, more masculine chest contour.

Who is a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery?

Before considering male breast reduction, patients should ensure that they are in good health and maintaining a healthy weight. This operation is not a replacement for weight loss.

What can I expect with gynecomastia surgery?

Male breast reduction is a very common procedure. During the procedure, doctors use liposuction and limited incisions for minimal scarring when removing the breast tissue. Patients can resume most activities within two weeks, and men should be able to perform chest exercises and heavy lifting by eight weeks.
