Your Gynecomastia Surgery

Male breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that corrects excess breast tissue in men, which can be a cosmetic issue that causes discomfort and embarrassment. A common condition called gynecomastia is often the cause of this excess tissue, and for a large number of men, surgery is the only way to restore a masculine chest. Dr. Rosen can help you with gynecomastia surgery if you’re in Bucks County, Doylestown, or the nearby areas, and you’re ready to enjoy a sculpted, masculine chest.

Is Male Breast Reduction Right for Me?

During your consultation, Dr. Rosen will talk you through your goals and the various options that can help you meet them, and you’ll work together to decide whether or not male breast reduction is indeed the right choice for you.

If you are a candidate for this surgery, you should meet these conditions:

  • Bothered by a condition of excess breast tissue on your chest
  • At a stable and healthy body weight
  • A non-smoker or cease smoking at least two weeks before surgery
  • Have good skin elasticity on the chest

What Exactly Is Gynecomastia?

Physicians believe gynecomastia is caused by hormonal problems, and although it can sometimes be linked to a man’s lifestyle, the cause is not always clear. With gynecomastia, the male breasts can sometimes even be painful or sensitive, though cosmetic discomfort is the most commonly-seen effect. If you believe gynecomastia is the cause of your excess breast tissue, you should see a physician and try to resolve the issue before considering cosmetic surgery.

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.

Are There Possible Complications?

All cosmetic surgery carries a risk of complications, but you can effectively minimize these risks by going with a highly experienced and board-certified surgeon like Dr. Rosen. For male breast reduction, adverse events include but are not limited to: noticeable scarring, pigment changes, asymmetry, infection, skin injury, bleeding, fluid loss or buildup, reaction to anesthesia. If you have special concerns, ask Dr. Rosen for more information about surgery risks.

After Your Male Breast Reduction: Recovery and Results

Recovery time is about one week, but you will need to postpone exercise for about three weeks following your procedure. After the surgery, your chest will be wrapped in gauze, and you can expect some bruising, swelling, and discomfort during this time. 

As the swelling subsides, you’ll be able to appreciate the results of your procedure, enjoying a flatter, more masculine chest. 

Regular exercise and a healthy diet can help you to maintain and even improve your results for years to come.
