Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia, while rarely discussed, is a fairly common medical condition characterized by an enlarged breast in men. In fact, it’s believed that 40 to 60% of men suffer from gynecomastia. While there is no known cause in many cases of gynecomastia, there has been some correlation with certain drugs and medical conditions.
For men who are self-conscious about their appearance, male breast reduction surgery at Gotham Plastic Surgery of New York City can help by restoring a flatter, firmer appearance to the male chest. Prior to surgery, patients should be checked to see if there is any medical cause of their gynecomastia and if there is it should be sufficiently treated.
Our doctors perform male breast reduction surgery on an outpatient basis at our JCAHO-accredited office-based surgery facility at Gotham Plastic Surgery of New York City. General anesthesia or local anesthesia may be used. During surgery, excess fat and/or glandular tissue are removed from the breasts. In extreme cases, excess skin may be removed as well.
Some swelling and bruising can be expected after surgery. If drainage tubes are inserted, they will be removed within a day or two. You will be required to wear a special compression garment for a period of time during recovery to help support the new contours of the chest. If you experience any pain or discomfort, this can be relieved with medication. You will likely feel well enough after your surgery to return to work within one week.
