All About Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, also known as male breast reduction, is a procedure addressing the overdevelopment of male breast tissue affecting roughly 50 to 60 percent of males – likely caused by hormonal imbalance and significant weight gain (then loss). During the procedure, excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed resulting in better contour, flatness and a firmer appearance to the male chest.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do I Need to Know?

If your condition is mainly the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction will be utilized to remove the excess fat. A small incision, less than half an inch in size, is made around the edge of the areola – the pigmented area encircling the nipple. A slender, hollow tube-like instrument, called a cannula, is attached to a vacuum pump and inserted into the incision. The cannula is then guided by your surgeon to break up layers of fat beneath the skin and suction it out of the breast.

If excess glandular tissue is the main cause of enlarged breasts, your surgeon will choose to excise or cut out this tissue out using a scalpel. The excision will be made in a well-concealed area on the edge of the areola or under the arm. Working through this incision the surgeon will excise the glandular tissue. Excision may be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction.

For men who have an extremely large amount of fat or glandular tissue in the breasts, it may be necessary to also excise skin. Skin may not contour well to the breast area once fat or glandular tissue is removed, leaving the patient with saggybreast skin.

Am I a Candidate?
  • The best candidates for breast reduction are men who have firmness and good elasticity in the skin that will reshape to the breasts new contour after reduction.
  • Those men with excess fat or glandular tissue in one or both breasts who are self-conscious and avoid taking their shirts off, going to the beach or working out at the gym due to embarrassment.
How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?
  • You can expect swelling, bruising and some discomfort for a few days following surgery. Much of this discomfort can be controlled with medication prescribed by your surgeon.
  • To reduce swelling, you will wear a compression garment for the first couple of weeks or longer.
  • Most of the swelling bruising and discomfort will decrease within a few weeks.
  • Results of your surgery may not truly be noticeable for up to 2-3 months or more.
  • A scar will be noticeable in the areola or through the armpit but the scar appearance may improve with time.
  • You can return to work after a day or two or when you feel well enough to do so.
  • Heavy activities such as working out, should be avoided for about 4 weeks
  • Sun exposure should be avoided for about 6 months to help eliminate darkening of your scars.
What Results Can I Expect?

Men who choose to eliminate excess breast tissue are extremely satisfied with their results. Flatness and firmness as well as improved shape to the breasts can increase self-confidence and improve life for many patients. Those who were self conscious about doing things that most men take for granted, such as swimming, working out or going to the beach, can now enjoy life’s pleasures without worrying about their appearance. The results of male breast reduction are permanent.
