Male Breast Reduction
Having excess volume in the chest for men can cause great embarrassment and discomfort, and can limit someone’s activities in swimming or even dating. Removing excess tissue or fat in the breast for a man is called “Gynecomastia”. Our doctors have helped thousands of men feel good about themselves with a simple procedure.* Fatty deposits that rest on the chest of a male can produce the appearance of breasts and cause humiliation. This is common in 40 – 60% of males, but it does not make it any less embarrassing when changing in the locker room or spending time at the beach. Drs. Rosenberg and Lambruschi are able to give you the contoured, manly chest you desire with a breast reduction. For more information on the male breast reduction, setup an appointment at Valley Plastic Surgery Center.
How Are Male Breast Reductions Performed?
Your surgeon will begin this procedure by making a small incision under the areola or under the arm, depending on the patient’s body. Excess skin and glandular tissue will be removed, and Drs. Rosenberg and Lambruschi may recommend liposuction if there is excessive amounts of fat. Small sutures will be used to close the incision at the end of the 2-hour breast reduction. For further questions, contact our facility and someone will be able to assist you.
What To Expect After Your Male Breast Reduction?
After your breast reduction, the breasts will be bandaged and a tube may be used in the initial days for any drainage that occurs. Males commonly experience swelling or bruising following their breast reduction, but work can resume in about 1 to 3 days after the procedure. Our surgeons do recommend that a pressure garment is worn for 3 to 6 weeks to aid the healing process.
How Much Does A Male Breast Reduction Cost?
This cost of a male breast reduction can vary depending on the extent of surgery necessary to reach the cosmetic goal and if liposuction is done in conjunction. All surgeries and procedures are performed at our surgery center rather than an outside facility. We do this in order to be more cost effective for our patients while maintaining the highest standards of quality and control. To best assess the cost of your procedure, contact Valley Plastic Surgery Center.
