What Is Male Breast Reduction?

Male breast reduction, clinically known as gynecomastia excision, is a procedure performed to reduce male breasts that are abnormally large or have an undesirable shape. Gynecomastia is a condition caused by either hormone imbalance or genetic factors.

At the Leyngold Institute for Plastic Surgery in Meridian, gynecomastia surgery involves removing glandular tissue and sometimes fat from the male chest to achieve a more masculine, contoured look. The technique used will depend on the amount of breast tissue present, skin quality and desired outcome.


What Are the Benefits of gynecomastia Reduction?

Gynecomastia reduction offers a variety of benefits, including improved self-esteem and body image. The procedure can also help to improve male chest contours by creating smoother and more sculpted lines.

Benefits you can see include:
  • Achieve male chest contours that better reflect your gender identity
  • Improved confidence with clothing options

Procedure Overview

At the Leyngold Institute for Plastic Surgery, gynecomastia reduction is usually performed under general anesthesia and outpatient settings. The exact procedure and details of recovery will be discussed during your initial consultation. In general, gynecomastia reduction can be an overall safe and effective way to improve male chest contours giving you the body shape you desire. Generally, a procedure will last about 2 hours, though this can vary depending on the extent of reduction needing and your individual physical traits.

Some patients also enjoy combining this procedure with others, such as a body lift or tummy tuck to further enhance their aesthetic. In these cases, the procedure can take a bit longer but will provide significant aesthetic benefits for years to come.

What Is the Recovery after Gynecomastia Reduction?

The male breast reduction recovery process will depend on the type of procedure you undergo. Dr. Leyngold will provide detailed postoperative instructions to help ensure a successful healing and recovery period.

Generally, gynecomastia reduction patients can return to their normal activities in about two weeks and resume more strenuous activity within four to six weeks. Your doctor may also recommend wearing a compression garment to help minimize swelling and encourage the skin to heal properly.

When Can I See Results?

The male breast reduction results can be seen immediately after surgery, although they will continue to improve as the swelling subsides over time. The male chest contours you achieve should be permanent, though it is important to maintain a stable weight with healthy diet and exercise to maintain the results. Most patients will be able to see their final results after about 3 months when all swelling has subsided, but you can expect to see continual improvements especially if liposuction was performed.
At the Leyngold Institute for Plastic Surgery, we understand that male breast reduction is a personal decision. Our experienced plastic surgeon will work with you to create a male chest contouring plan tailored specifically to your body and goals.
