About Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Click here to read our patient testimonials »
An estimated 40-60% of men in the United States suffer from gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. While gynecomastia is linked to the use of certain medications as well as medical conditions such as cancer or liver disorders, many men have enlarged breasts for no identifiable reason. Gynecomastia can adversely affect a man’s confidence, causing him to feel self-conscious about the way his chest looks in and out of clothing. Male breast reduction surgery restores a more masculine shape and profile to a man’s chest by removing excess fat and glandular tissue in the breast area.
Dr. Reedy customizes male breast reduction surgery to the needs of each patient. For many men, liposuction of the chest can achieve the desired result, while others require tissue excision, with or without liposuction, to restore a more natural-looking, masculine chest contour. Anesthesia during the procedure is administered by a qualified anesthesia provider.
