Male Breast Reduction

What is male breast reduction?

Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size, flattening and enhancing contours of the male chest.

Am I a candidate?

After extensive weight loss, many men may have loose or excess skin around the chest. This issue can cause emotional discomfort and low self-esteem.

Candidates for male breast reduction include males whose condition cannot be corrected through exercise. Is it also important to be a healthy weight and have realistic expectations.

What is recovery like?

Recovery will take a couple of weeks. Dressings and bandages will be applied to incision site. Sometimes a small, thin tube may be placed under the skin to drain any excess fluid. Dr. Oberhelman will give you specific post-operative instructions before your procedure that may include:

  • How to care for your chest following surgery.
  • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing, relieve pain and reduce the risk of infection.
  • When to come in for a follow-up appointment.
