Gynecomastia surgery for men is the most common treatment for male breast reduction (or man boobs). Gynecomastia surgery removes excess fat, breast tissue, and sometimes skin to restore a flatter, firmer, and more masculine contour to the chest.
Gynecomastia can cause body-image issues and interfere with a man’s quality of life. Genetics, weight fluctuations, and certain medications can all contribute to enlarged breast tissue in men, making going shirtless uncomfortable or even embarrassing. Our team’s goal is to offer you support in becoming your most confident self through a personalized chest reduction procedure.

Gynecomastia Surgery FAQs
Chest reduction surgery is performed with anesthesia, so the procedure itself is completely painless. It is common to experience some level of discomfort in the hours and days following the procedure. Over the counter medications can help relieve the discomfort that occurs following surgery.
Your surgeon will speak with you at length about your desired outcomes and walk you through all the available options. A thorough consultation will help your surgeon develop a plan to give you the toned, masculine-looking chest that you desire. You can use this time to address any questions you might have and share your expectations.
Several chest contouring methods are available, and your surgeon will choose the best option based on your goals and particular body composition. Liposuction removes excess volume and corrects contours. Fat Transfer utilizes excess fat to augment other body parts like biceps or calves. Firm or tender glandular tissue behind the areola can be removed through a small, barely visible incision where the areola meets the skin of the chest. Finally, excess skin can be removed utilizing various incisions hidden in the natural shadows of the body.
Like with any surgery, chest reduction does leave some scarring. Fortunately, some of the scars can be hidden away within natural contours.
Recovery can take a few weeks, and the use of a compression garment made specifically for chest reduction can be helpful.
