Gynecomastia is a common condition which results in enlarged male breast tissue. While the exact cause is unknown this condition is often linked to hormonal fluctuations and the use of certain medications. It can be seen in males of all ages and of various degrees with the negative impact on self-image prompting men to seek treatment options.

The goal of gynecomastia chest surgery is a flat chest with accentuation of the underlying pectoral major muscle for a more masculine contour appearance. Depending on the distinct anatomical makeup nature of their surplus breast tissue a combination of liposuction, direct gland excision, skin excision or even focal structural fat grafting is employed. Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize any visible scarring.

After male breast reduction surgery, as it is often also referred to, patients can expect a quick recovery with a chest garment to be worn continuously (except when showering) for 4 weeks. Patients are able to return to work once they feel well enough but should avoid strenuous exercise for at least three weeks to avoid contraction of the chest wall muscles while this area heals and the skin contracts.

We pride ourselves in delivering a customized approach to every male patient for lasting results that continue to improve once the patient begins to tone and define his chest wall musculature. See our patient gallery for examples.

Who is a candidate for gynecomastia chest surgery?

Candidates for gynecomastia chest surgery are males who have enlarged breast tissue that does not respond to diet, exercise, or medical treatment. Good candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the outcome, and are mentally and emotionally prepared for the surgery. It is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon specializing in gynecomastia to determine if you are a suitable candidate.

What is the recovery process like after gynecomastia chest surgery?

After gynecomastia chest surgery, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the chest area. You will be provided with post-operative instructions, including wearing a compression garment to minimize swelling and support the healing process. Most patients can return to work and light activities within a week or two, but strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks. Full recovery and final results may take a few months, during which time the incision lines will fade.
