What Happens During Male Breast Reduction

Prior to performing male breast reduction, Dr. Gonyon will get to know your unique concerns and goals to determine which technique to use. You may require a small to medium-sized incision and liposuction to get rid of the fatty tissue. Liposuction paired with the direct removal of excess tissue may also be an option. 

In the event you have too much glandular tissue, Dr. Gonyon may have to make a larger incision. Once he’s removed the appropriate amount of tissue from your chest, you can expect him to tighten the skin over your chest muscles. Male breast reduction is usually performed in about two hours under general anesthesia.

Good Candidates for Male Breast Reduction 

If you are living with and bothered by gynecomastia, a male breast reduction may be a good option. You should be at or near your goal weight and wish to resolve the fatty breast tissue that’s resistant to diet and exercise. 

If you have found that gynecomastia has interfered with your physical comfort and self-esteem, a male breast reduction is certainly worth considering. Dr. Gonyon does not recommend this procedure if you smoke or have been diagnosed with gynecomastia for less than a year. 

Benefits of Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction can provide a number of benefits to men with gynecomastia. First and foremost, it can reduce enlarged male breasts. It may also reshape or enhance chest contours and resolve puffy nipples. If your breasts are asymmetrical, the procedure can improve your overall body proportions. Most importantly, however, it can do wonders for your self-confidence.
