What is male breast reduction?

Many men suffer from gynecomastia — the presence of excess male breast tissue — and look to surgical options to give them a smoother, flatter, more masculine chest.

Who is male breast reduction right for?

Gynecomastia can take on various forms: a generalized excess in breast tissue, a feminine breast shape, or puffiness of the nipple areolar complex. Breast surgery in men, often called ‘Male Breast Reduction’ or ‘Gynecomastia Surgery’, is designed to remove excess breast tissue, reduce puffiness of the areola, and reshape the male chest.

How long will the results of male breast reduction last?

Results are expected to be long-lasting. Significant changes in body weight, natural changes with aging and certain medical conditions can alter your post-surgical appearance over time.

What to Expect From

Male Breast Reduction

During this procedure, the excess fat and glandular tissue that cause the enlargement of the breast are removed. The surgical technique will vary depending on your breast shape and aesthetic goals. Your surgeon will help you explore your options. Along with a comprehensive examination, you’ll discuss your unique needs and vision during your consultation to find a surgical plan that’s perfect for you. In most cases, liposuction is used to remove the excess fat and reshape the breast and male chest. In some cases a small incision underneath the areola is also made to allow for removal of dense glandular breast tissue. These incisions are generally very well hidden. This procedure is done under general anesthesia.

Recovery time will vary depending on the chosen surgical technique, but most patients can return to their everyday activities the day after surgery. Within 3-4 weeks, you’ll be able to participate in more energetic activities. A compression garment (similar to a tight tank top) is recommended to reduce swelling and accelerate recovery. This will be provided for you.
