Gynecomastia - Male Breast Reduction

Plastic Surgery for New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Surgery for gynecomastia or enlarged breasts in men is one of the most frequently sought operations by males. It is often perceived as very embarrassing and commonly forms a trio with stomach pouches and love handles. The condition usually starts in men in adolescence and stabilizes after a few years. It does not respond to diet and exercise.

The Male Breast Reduction Operation

The treatment often entails only liposuction using a very small incision underneath the breast. In some cases, excisional surgery whereby breast tissue is actually cut out may be necessary.

Gynecomastia Post-Operative Course

Patients need to wear a binder for 1-2 weeks. Return to work may be as quick as the following day, although a few days off is more common. Massage and ultrasound treatment given post-operatively is an integral part of our program.
