Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia procedure, is a transformative surgery that offers numerous benefits to men struggling with excess breast tissue. This condition, often a result of hormonal imbalances, medications, or genetics, can lead to self-consciousness and discomfort. The gynecomastia procedure involves the removal of excess breast tissue and the sculpting of a more masculine chest contour. The benefits of this surgery extend beyond physical changes; it provides a significant boost to self-esteem and confidence, enabling men to feel more at ease in their bodies. Dr. Park at Face and Body Cosmetic Surgery specializes in gynecomastia procedures, offering tailored solutions to help patients achieve a more masculine and harmonious chest appearance, ultimately enhancing their quality of life.

Men dealing with enlarged breasts often grapple with body image concerns, particularly when it comes to going shirtless in public. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that roughly half of all men experience excess localized fat and/or glandular tissue in their breasts. Although pinpointing the precise triggers for this condition has proven elusive, a study in Turkey suggests that phthalates may contribute to the development of enlarged breasts in pubescent boys.

Thankfully, there are multiple surgical procedures available to help men reduce the size of their breasts. These options include liposuction and glandular tissue abatement, both of which have demonstrated efficacy in male breast reduction. However, the removal of excess breast glandular tissue has proven to be the most comprehensive solution.

Male breast reduction surgery is typically conducted as an outpatient procedure with an approximate duration of one hour, although this may vary in certain cases. It's crucial to be aware of potential risks associated with this surgery, such as swelling, scarring, bleeding, mild discomfort, and the risk of infection. Fortunately, the recovery period is relatively brief, with most individuals requiring just two days of downtime and resuming normal activities within a week.
