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.
