Male Breast Reduction or Gynecomastia
As a man with feminine-looking breasts in New York, you’re not alone. Gynecomastia, a medical term derived from the Greek words for “woman-like breasts,” affects many men. Enlarged breasts can be permanent, uncomfortable, and socially and psychologically devastating, but they can be permanently removed through breast reduction surgery.
In NYC, gynecomastia may be associated with obesity, hormonal metabolism imbalance, liver disease, or medicinal cause
Male Breast Reduction
During your consultation, we’ll help you to feel comfortable explaining your goals and expectations, and your surgeon will assess your existing anatomy to determine the cause of your breast enlargement. Male breasts may be formed from fatty tissue and/or glandular tissue. If male breast reduction surgery or gynecomastia treatment is right for you, it will be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia and the procedure can last from 1 to 2 hours depending on the extent of correction. Surgery may require:
If your gynecomastia is primarily caused by fatty tissue, your surgeon may recommend a liposuction procedure. Liposuction surgery can actually remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. The result is a resculpting of bulging breasts into more attractive contours.
TRADITIONAL SURGICAL EXCISION
If your gynecomastia is the result of a glandular disorder, liposuction alone is not likely to be adequate. Traditional surgical excision may be a better option. The excision may be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction. Typically, the incision is placed on the edge of the areola (colored area of the nipple) or in the underarm area. Your surgeon will work through these incisions to cut away the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from the breast.
