Many men participate in physical activities such as jogging, weight lifting, and sports to keep their bodies trim and fit. Despite these efforts, enlarged male breasts may still be present as they are often not responsive to changes in diet and exercise.
An accumulation of stubborn, fatty tissue in your chest or breast area can persist even as the rest of your body becomes toned. The appearance of breasts on males may not be due to weight gain alone, but rather to a combination of factors including genetic predisposition, medication, illness, puberty, and aging.
If you have large male breasts that are embarrassing and uncomfortable, male breast reduction can help you achieve the results you desire.
Before a male breast reduction, Dr. Gonyon will carefully assess your body to determine what method of male breast reduction will best suit your needs. For some men, this requires little more than a small incision and the use of liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue. Some men can benefit from a combination of both liposuction and direct removal of excess tissue.
For men with excessive glandular tissue, a larger incision may be required through which tissue and excess skin can be removed. Once Dr. Gonyon has removed unwanted tissue from your chest, he will tighten the skin over your chest muscles to help create a more attractive, masculine profile.

Patients treated with male breast reduction often see:
The results of male breast reduction are long-lasting, assuming you do not gain a significant amount of weight. If you do gain weight, you may notice an enlargement of the breast tissue again. The majority of gynecomastia patients are very happy with the results and do not have a problem maintaining a healthy and stable weight.
If you are embarrassed to show your chest, the gynecomastia procedure can restore a masculine frame and renew your self-confidence.
Your recovery will depend on the way your procedure is performed. Generally, male breast reduction candidates can return to work within 10 days or less. You will have to take a few weeks of downtime from exercise and for certain types of exercise, you may have to wait 3 to 6 weeks to resume your routine.
Yes, this procedure does leave scars and the location will vary depending on the technique used. In all cases, Dr. Gonyon uses the most minimal incisions possible and puts them in areas where they are the most concealed.
