What's YOUnique about Male Breast Reduction?

Male breast volume is dictated by glandular tissue and fatty tissue. Although highly debatable, gynecomastia is caused by aging, drug abuse, obesity, tumors, medication side effects, genetic disorders, castration, chronic liver disease, Gilbert's Syndrome, and Klinefelter Syndrome. As boys mature through their teens it is normal for their mammary glands to begin reducing in size. However, there are occurrences where they do not and the best solution is a male breast reduction for Hollywood men.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure

Treatment for gynecomastia includes liposuction and/or excision depending if the condition affects the fatty tissue, glandular tissue, or both. Male breast liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure, where the patient is put under local and I.V. anaesthesia by our board certified anaesthesiologist. Once under, Dr. Youssef makes a small incision in the breast in order to remove the excess fat. If the patient has a condition that is glandular, the doctor will make the incision a little bit larger under the areola and remove the component. Both liposuction and direct excision are options for treating gynecomastia, but liposuction is performed on the outer part of the breast.

Recovery and Results

Patients will need to take work off for the week after having this procedure performed. It is recommended to take about a week off of work, but full recovery time takes about four to six weeks. You will be given a compression vest after your surgery that will help minimize any swelling and also minimize the empty space in each breast.

When you are ready to take the steps toward improving your look, request a consultation online or call our office at (310) 434-0044.
