Excessive male breast tissue – a condition called gynecomastia – can leave men looking for solutions that diet and exercise can’t provide. If you feel concerned and embarrassed about pronounced breasts, cosmetic surgery can restore a more masculine chest contour. This condition is successfully treated using either liposuction, surgical excision, or a combination of both to eliminate excess breast tissue.

FAQs about Plastic Surgery for Men

What anesthesia do I need for a male breast reduction?

At MAE, we use local anesthesia and IV sedation administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist for this procedure. You will be treated at Dr. Epstein’s state-of-the-art surgical center for comfort and quick recovery.

Who are ideal candidates for male breast reduction?

Men who are affected psychologically and physically by enlarged breasts, are in good health, and have achievable goals are good candidates for this procedure.

When can I expect results from my procedure?

Surgical results will vary from patient to patient and depend on the procedure. Each treatment we offer creates some bruising and swelling. You should notice improvement after the swelling subsides, usually after two weeks. Full results can usually be seen after a few months.

What about scarring?

All surgery leaves scars, but in the case of plastic surgery for men, incisions are performed in inconspicuous areas, so they shouldn’t be noticeable once they are healed.
