If you're a man with excessive breast tissue that makes you self conscious, we may be able to help with gynecomastia surgery.
Gynecomastia surgery, or reduction mammaplasty, reduces the size of the breasts and gives the chest a more contoured look.
We may perform liposuction or tissue excision to reduce the size of the breasts. The liposuction technique involves making incisions on each side of the chest through which we'll remove excess tissue. The tissue excision method is used in more extreme cases when patients have skin that is stretched or sagging. The excision treatment allows us to remove more tissue.
Gynecomastia surgery takes around three hours. It is performed under local or general anesthesia. The recovery time is generally less than a week, and some patients have to wear a compression garment during recovery.
