Take your shirt off this summer without feeling embarrassed about your enlarged male breasts. With gynecomastia surgery, you can have the look you’ve been wanting.

About Gynecomastia Surgery

The goal of gynecomastia surgery is to reduce breast size. This usually results in patients having a flat, tight, and contoured chest. This is done by removing the tissue under the breast or using liposuction.

Some patients have severe gynecomastia that causes drooping of the breasts, so they need to have excess skin removed.

Gynecomastia surgery can be performed with local anesthesia and sedation. The procedure takes about an hour and a half.

What to Expect After Surgery

You will be out on the beach feeling and looking great before you know it. For about two weeks following surgery, you will need to wear an elastic pressure garment (wear as directed by your surgeon). This helps keep the swelling down.

While final results can be seen after about three months, once the swelling is gone, you’ll likely already feel confident enough to take your shirt off in front of people. As you recover from surgery, you’ll see your chest become much more defined.

Is This Right for You?

If you’re obese or overweight, it’s best to try this procedure after you’ve dieted, exercised and achieved your ideal body weight. Many times, people find they don’t need the procedure after they’ve lost weight and toned their chest. In cases where excessive breast gland tissue is present, weight is not a factor and surgery must be done.

Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) can be caused by alcohol, marijuana, and anabolic steroid abuse. Those who abuse these substances are not good candidates, as the enlarged breasts are likely to return.

Men who are healthy, non-smokers, non-drug users, and have tried alternative medical treatments to reduce the size of their breasts are the best candidates for gynecomastia surgery.
