Who can benefit from male breast reduction?
Male breast reduction surgery can help men of nearly any age affected by gynecomastia. In addition to an improved chest contour, male breast reduction can have life-enhancing benefits, including:
- Freedom to go shirtless at the beach or pool without embarrassment
- A boost in self-confidence, which can enhance personal & professional relationships
- Ability to wear more tailored clothing instead of baggy t-shirts
An individualized approach for natural results
Natural results are especially important to our male patients. Our surgeons use techniques that result in the least amount of scarring possible. The exact method used to treat gynecomastia depends on the type and amount of tissue to be removed.
LIPOSUCTION TO TREAT GYNECOMASTIA
If the excess tissue is mainly fat, and you have good skin condition, liposuction alone may suffice. Through one or two tiny, virtually undetectable incisions, Dr. Cohen will remove the excess fat and glandular tissue, sculpting an aesthetically pleasing chest contour.
MALE BREAST REDUCTION WITH TISSUE EXCISION
Patients with greater amounts of glandular tissue or with more severe gynecomastia may require surgical excision of the tissue to achieve optimal results. Incisions are made along the outline of the areola, and the excess tissue is removed.
What’s involved in a male breast reduction?
Male breast reduction surgery takes 1 to 3 hours and is performed on an outpatient basis, with general anesthesia, at our fully accredited, private Surgery Center. Because safety is our first concern, we always work with board-certified anesthesiologists. Following your surgery, you will be able to rest in the comfort of your own home.
Recovery can vary depending on the the surgical plan and your general health and well being. You can expect to return to work within one week.
