Whether you have developed the condition due to your genetic makeup, weight gain, or as the side effect of certain medications, it can be distressing. However, this issue can be resolved with a plastic surgery procedure.

Who Is A Candidate For Male Breast Reduction?

  • Men who have large breasts due to weight, genes, or a glandular dysfunction
  • Men who have one breast larger than the other
  • Men who have significant psychosocial stress due to excess breast tissue
  • Men who have used steroids and were left with excess breast tissue

Intended Results

  • To improve the contour of the breast by reducing size.
  • To create a more harmonious, firm, masculine upper chest appearance.
  • To reduce the significant psychosocial stress that men feel due to large breasts.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure Description

After determining that the large breasts are not due to serious glandular or hormonal problems, power assisted liposuction is used to extract excess fat. For some patients, the glands elements under the nipple are removed via a small incision beneath the areola.

The 2-3 mm scars are hidden in inconspicuous areas. Occasionally, a surgical breast reduction is needed in men who have very large breasts. This is especially true in men who have successfully lost a significant amount of weight. This outpatient procedure is done under general anesthesia.

Recovery From Male Breast Reduction

  • After the procedure, a thin surgical garment is worn for about four weeks.
  • Minimal discomfort is associated with this procedure.
  • Most patients can resume exercise in three weeks and return to work in three to five days.
  • Although dramatic difference is seen immediately, some swelling persists for about one month.

Other Procedures Performed In Conjunction With Male Breast Reduction

Liposuction of the upper trunk and abdomen can be combined with male breast reduction to improve the appearance of the upper body.

Surgery can be coupled with another enhancement for men who are seeking a full anti-aging treatment, including facial rejuvenation, body sculpting, or others.

Updated May 2022
We have been fully operational since May of 2020. This includes skincare and our non-invasive center (ENIC).
We know that so much of this pandemic caused an inconvenience for you, but we are delighted to see a return to normalcy. 
We will continue to be vigilant in our approach to Covid 19. For over two decades, we have considered safety as our most important prerogative — and there has never been a more important time to put that to use.
Here are some things we’re doing to ensure you are protected and that we maintain this facility as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) zone:

Patient Flow and Clinical Office Space

We now have a well-tested protocol of texting patients for control of flow for consultations.
We are assigning everyone to hourly wipe-downs of high-use areas with approved sanitizing wipes.
We are asking that no one wait in the waiting area.
We are coming up with protocols for room wipe-downs after each patient visit.
Every staff member will always wear a mask while in the office.
Every staff member will sanitize or wash hands after every interaction.
Implementation of virtual pre-ops, nursing visits, and questions.

Operating Room Experience

Similar precautions and questionnaires will be provided to establish Covid-19 Clear Status.
All staff will always wear a mask. All staff will always wear gloves.
Hand washing will be done for any patient interaction.
Specific wipe-down of our operating room, recovery, and pre-op areas will be performed.
We will minimize accompanying caretakers to only one. Those caretakers will be treated just like the patients.
Anesthesia Experience
Every anesthesia staff will wear goggles and other protective equipment during intubation.
Our anesthesiologists have been fully trained and are implementing all precautions for prevention of Covid-19 spread.
All circuits will be changed between each patient.
Full wipe-down of surfaces and floors will be performed.
We will implement a time-out protocol to confirm the Covid-19 Clear Status of every patient.

As you can see, we are taking this very seriously. We fully understand that this will cause some inconvenience in the short term, but realize that it is for the best.
Although Covid-19 has been a serious issue, we are seeing a resumption of normalcy. We continue to monitor this situation on a real-time basis, and we will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
When you see us in action, you’ll realize that you have put your trust in the right practice.
