Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Welcome to skŸn by Dr. Moore, the premier medical spa and wellness center in Aldie. We understand the importance of self-confidence and are dedicated to providing effective solutions. Our male breast reduction treatments target gynecomastia, reducing excess fat and tissue in the breasts to help you achieve your desired goals.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a common condition that affects men of all ages. It is characterized by the development of excess breast tissue and fat, resulting in enlarged breasts. Hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, certain medications, and medical conditions can contribute to gynecomastia. This condition can cause physical discomfort, self-consciousness, and a negative impact on self-esteem. At skŸn by Dr. Moore, we offer effective male breast reduction procedures to address gynecomastia and help restore a more masculine chest contour.

Symptoms of Gynecomastia:

  • Enlarged breasts in men
  • Swelling or tenderness in the breast area
  • Uneven or asymmetrical chest appearance
  • Excessive localized fat deposits in the breast area
  • Psychological distress and self-consciousness

Restore Masculine Chest Contours

Male breast reduction surgery is a highly effective procedure that aims to restore masculine chest contours. The surgery involves the removal of excess breast tissue, allowing the natural shape and contour of the chest wall to be revealed. In cases of gynecomastia, where the breast tissue has overgrown, this surgical intervention helps to eliminate the excess tissue, unveiling the underlying pectoralis muscles and creating a more masculine appearance.

Benefits of Male Breast Reduction:

  • Restores a more masculine chest appearance
  • Reduces physical discomfort and pain
  • Enhances the ability to wear fitted clothing
  • Resolves psychological distress associated with gynecomastia
  • Provides long-lasting results
  • Minimal scarring
  • Improves overall body proportions
  • Boosts body image and body positivity

How Male Breast Reduction Is Performed

During male breast reduction, which is performed under general anesthesia, a specialized liposuction technique will be utilized. The surgeon will make a small incision around the areola (intra-areolar) to access the breast tissue. Using a suction device, excess fat and tissue will be carefully removed, sculpting the chest to achieve the desired outcome. For milder cases, liposuction alone may be sufficient. However, severe gynecomastia may require en bloc tissue resection, skin tightening, and possibly nipple grafting, which may be performed in stages.

What Does Recovery Entail?

After your male breast reduction surgery, it is normal to experience some swelling, which can be managed by wearing a compression garment for 1-2 weeks. Generally, you can expect to return to your normal work routine within a few days and resume exercise and physical activities within approximately four weeks. The procedure will provide you with a firmer, flatter chest, enhancing your self-confidence and comfort when exposing your chest.

Results: What to Expect

After your male breast reduction surgery, you can expect to see immediate improvements in the appearance of your chest. However, it’s important to note that the final results will gradually become more evident as the swelling subsides and the tissues settle. While there may be some scarring, rest assured that the incisions are strategically placed around the areola to minimize visibility. Over time, the incision lines will fade and become nearly imperceptible, allowing you to enjoy the long-lasting, natural-looking results of your procedure.
