Enlarged male breasts, also referred to as gynecomastia, can affect men regardless of their weight or their size. Because these men have an excessive amount of fat in the area, their chest takes on the appearance of having larger breasts than what is commonly seen in men. Men who are diagnosed with gynecomastia may be good candidates for a surgical male breast reduction procedure.
Male breast reduction is typically an outpatient procedure. It is a procedure that may use liposuction and other techniques to remove fat and excessive glandular tissue. Most patients recover quickly. There are a few factors you should take into consideration when deciding whether or not you are a good candidate for male breast reduction.
Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure. If you have health problems that impede your body’s ability to recover, then this surgical option may not be right for you. It’s best for you to make an informed decision. You can do this by talking to our surgeon.
Are you overweight? If your answer to that question is yes, right now may not be the best time to have breast reduction surgery performed. Diet and exercise may help you get back to a healthy weight.
What are you expecting before, during, and after male breast reduction surgery? You need to be realistic. Male breast reduction surgery is not going to make you look like a superhero with contoured pectoral muscles. It is realistic to expect that you will have a flatter chest that conforms to the general expectations one would have for the male body. Our doctor can show you before and after examples of male breast reduction cases. The purpose of this is to help you understand what can and cannot be accomplished through this procedure.
