Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Ideal candidates for male chest reduction or Gynecomastia are:
- Men with excessively large breasts
- Men that have excess or sagging tissue in the chest area after losing a large amount of weight.
This is a relatively common condition known as gynecomastia. This procedure will create a flatter chest for you with a more masculine male contour.
Your Gynecomastia Surgery
Dr. Thao will perform your surgery at the surgery center on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Excess breast tissue or fat can be removed with liposuction, excision, or a combination of both. The excess skin can be excised. You will go home several hours after surgery to be cared for by a friend or relative. A compression vest or chest wrapping is usually worn for a week or two after surgery to help reduce swelling.
Additional cosmetic procedures that will enhance the result are Liposuction of excess fat in the axilla (armpit area) or contouring and flattening the abdomen with Liposuction and/or Tummy Tuck.
