Male Breast Reduction


Gynecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast tissue.  Gynecomastia develops in up to 65% of adolescent boys and 40% of adult men.  The term comes from the Greek words gyne meaning "woman" and mastos meaning "breast".  In practical terms, this means abnormally large breasts on men.  


The condition is common in adolescent boys and 90% of the time symptoms disappear in a matter of months, or, as adolescence wanes, a few years later.  The remaining individuals may benefit from a surgical procedure to correct this enlargement of the breast.  


The Potential causes include:

Steroid abuse, Marijuana use, Genetic disorders, Malnutrition, Thyroid disease, Renal disease, Chronic liver disease, Side effects of some medications (Estrogens, Spironolactone, Cimetidine, Digoxin, Reserpine, Diazepam, Theophylline)


The Surgery:

Liposuction and direct excision of the enlarged breast tissue make up the ideal solution to this problem.  The combination of liposuction or UAL (ultrasound assisted Lipoplasty) and excision of the tissue is done with the patient under general anesthesia in our Facility or a Hospital.  The procedure is done through a small incision at the border of the nipple complex, and the glandular tissue is carefully removed.  Liposuction is then used to contour the chest and increase muscle definition.  The patient wears an elastic vest for several weeks to control healing and swelling.  


Here is a before and after picture of one of our patients who had liposuction and direct excision of tissue:
