Male Breast Reduction

For men who feel self-conscious and avoid certain physical activities due to gynecomastia, a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, male breast-reduction surgery can be a tremendous help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer and better contoured. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), gynecomastia is common in men of any age and can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs. The ASPS explains that gynecomastia is characterized by:
  • Excess localized fat
  • Excess glandular tissue development
  • A combination of both excess fat and glandular tissue
  • Gynecomastia may be present unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)
Male breast-reduction surgery is performed using general anesthesia on an outpatient basis, and the procedure typically takes about an hour and a half. When male breast-reduction surgery is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor. For more details about risks and recovery, click here.
