Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Gynecomastia is a condition that can affect men of all ages. The primary symptom is excess breast tissue, which can be sensitive or painful. If the condition cannot be resolved through lifestyle changes or medical therapy, Dr. Rottman can perform male breast reduction to reduce breast size and flatten the chest contours, creating a look that is more traditionally masculine.
Male breast reduction surgery typically involves liposuction and surgical excision of fat and breast glandular tissue. Dr. Rottman will remove the extra tissue and reposition the remaining tissues to create a tighter, more naturally masculine contour. Incisions are made along the border of the areola, so scars are well hidden after the surgery. Male breast reduction requires anesthesia. Dr. Rottman will discuss what type of anesthesia is most appropriate for you.
After male breast reduction, you may be given bandages or a support garment to help reduce swelling. The results can be seen immediately and as the swelling subsides, you will be able to appreciate your reduction even more. Incision lines will generally fade with time.
