Male Breast Reduction in San Diego
If you have gynecomastia, we have options for you.
Gynecomastia impacts a number of men, but many aren’t aware that making a change may be out of their personal control or that they have options. This condition, marked by the appearance of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin on the chest, is often the result of weight gain, genetics, or testosterone imbalances, making it notoriously difficult to improve with diet and exercise alone.
Luckily, the board certified plastic surgeons at LJCSC have you covered with years of experience and expertise in treating gynecomastia. If you are a man who has excessively large breasts or are concerned with sagging tissue on the chest after losing weight, you may be a candidate for a male breast reduction . This procedure is intended to give you a flatter chest with a more masculine male contour.
Is male breast reduction a good option for you?
If you think you have gynecomastia or are considering chest reduction surgery, your first step should be to meet with an experienced surgeon to explore your options and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Commonly, ideal patients exhibit the following conditions:
- Breasts that are larger than normal for a man
- Irritation or chafing under the breasts
- Puffy or enlarged nipples and areolas
- Drooping or excess skin around the chest after weight loss
- Discomfort wearing different close or feeling self-conscious taking shirt off.
What to expect from male chest reduction
Male breast reduction is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia but can also be done with sedation and local anesthesia. Excess breast tissue or fat can be removed with liposuction, excision, or a combination of the two. Excess skin can also be excised.
An additional procedure that may enhance your results is a Male Liposuction. Click here to see “before and after” photos of actual male liposuction patients.
