Male Breast Reduction Procedure
1 Minute Read:
Gynecomastia is a common condition characterized by enlarged male breasts. In many cases, the cause is unknown. However, some medical ailments and the use of certain substances may result in excessive glandular breast tissue, fat, or a combination of the two. Gynecomastia surgery is designed to reduce enlarged male breasts and restore a more masculine chest contour. For men who feel self-conscious about their oversized breasts, this procedure can help boost their self-confidence and enhance their appearance.
I was presented a 23 year-old male who was self-conscious about the size of his breasts. During the consultation and examination we discussed how to remove the excessive glandular breast tissue and fat by performing gynecomastia surgery. The procedure was performed under general anesthesia supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist.
The photo to the right shows three weeks post-op, and as you can see the enlarged breast has been reduced and are well balanced. The patient is extremely happy with his appearance and will continue to follow my postoperative instruction for a few more weeks (light actives can be resumed – no heavy lifting).
