The presence of enlarged male breasts can be a significantly upsetting one. It can cause personal discomfort and rob us of our body confidence, but this doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. If you’re feeling frustrated by the presence of enlarged male breasts — a condition also known as gynecomastia — Dr. Rosen is here to help, offering male breast reduction to patients in Bucks County, Doylestown, and the nearby areas so that you can enjoy the trim, fit chest you know you deserve.
How the Male Breast Reduction Procedure Works
Dr. Rosen may recommend a medical evaluation before your male breast reduction surgery, possibly with an MRI or mammogram, to analyze the composition of your breast tissue.
Male breast reduction surgery requires about an hour of operating time, with local anesthesia used for minor procedures, while general anesthesia may be necessary for more significant tissue removal. Your procedure will involve the removal of glandular tissue and/or fat. Dr. Rosen may use liposuction or surgical tissue removal. Incisions are made around the nipple or near the underarm. Fat is dislodged, and liposuction vacuums the fat from the chest area.
