Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to reduce breast tissue in men who suffer from gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by enlarged breast tissue in men, which can prevent them from achieving the firm, toned chest they desire. Male breast reduction eliminates excess breast tissue to produce more attractive chest contours.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia can occur due to an imbalance of hormones, but it can also be a side effect of certain medications or medical conditions. Being overweight is also a common cause of excess fat in the chest area. Gynecomastia often resolves on its own or through diet and exercise, but in many cases, the most effective option is male breast reduction surgery.

Am I a good candidate for male breast reduction?

Good candidates for male breast reduction are in good health, do not smoke, and are within 30 to 40 pounds of their ideal body weight. It is usually recommended to delay male breast reduction until after puberty. To determine if you are a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery, it is best to schedule a personalized consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

How long do the results of male breast reduction last?

The results of gynecomastia surgery are intended to be permanent, but weight fluctuations and the natural aging process can alter the appearance of the chest over time. Results of male breast reduction surgery can be maintained by following a healthy lifestyle.

How much does male breast reduction cost?

The cost of male breast reduction surgery varies based on the geographical location of the surgery, the procedural techniques, and the surgeon who performs the operation. Male breast reduction may be partially covered by health insurance when it is performed to relieve medical symptoms; however, pre-certification is often required for reimbursement or insurance coverage. During your consultation, Dr. Doezie will determine your exact quote and assist you with insurance verification.
