Sometimes excess breast tissue can develop in men after puberty or steroids. Male breast reduction surgery (gynecomastia) removes this excess breast tissue.
Depending on the extent of your condition, your surgery may involve liposuction alone or it may require excision of breast tissue.
If you have excess skin or enlarged areolas, we can remove the excess skin while hiding the scar at the areola border.
If your nipples droop (like after losing a log of weight), your nipple areolas may need to be removed from their abnormal position and sewn on to the new position higher on your chest.
Recovery usually takes about 1-2 weeks, but you'll also wear a compression shirt for six weeks.
