Male Breast Reduction in NYC

Male breast reduction is for men who may experience the appearance of large breasts due to excess localized fat and excess glandular breast skin. It may also be due to a condition known as Gynecomastia. Enlarged or over-developed breasts can occur at any age. This condition can result from heredity, hormonal changes, obesity, and side effects from prescription drugs. At times, some men can experience a lack of self-esteem and avoid certain sports and physical activities due to discomfort from the condition-especially during the summertime.

Due to this common condition, male breast reduction is an option that plastic surgeons offer to their patients to ease their concerns. There are two treatment options available, liposuction and excision. The surgeon can perform a series of liposuction techniques to eliminate pockets of fat in targeted areas. The excision procedure involves safely removing excess glandular tissue from the breast. The right surgeon will help you to understand and determine which procedure would provide the most benefit and the optimal desired aesthetic result. It may vary depending on each individual and the severity of the condition including the recovery time.

A combination of liposuction and excision is commonly used and will require a bit longer recovery time than liposuction. Most patients can return to work and normal routine after about a week. During your recovery time, your surgeon will give you instructions on how to care for yourself at home. These instructions may include drainage, following dosage instructions when taking prescribed medication such as antibiotics, limits on activity levels during recovery time, and a guide to wearing compression garments. Your follow-up visit is about seven days after surgery.

Ideal candidates for these procedures include those who feel discomfort when participating in sports and men who are looking to improve body proportions and have an uncomfortable feeling regarding their large breasts. Many personal reasons will also make you an ideal candidate for treatment.

Some potential candidates for male breast reduction may have been affected emotionally by having large breasts. This is a common reason for men to get the procedure. It affects self-esteem, and self-confidence and — at times — can cause a man to become withdrawn from participating in sports and other life/social events that they would otherwise enjoy.

Benefits include re-gaining self-confidence, wearing tight-fitting clothing with pride, participating in sports, feeling unashamed of your body, participating in physical activity, exposing your chest in public when at the beach or exercising, feeling a renewed sense of self and so much more. The possibilities of how this can improve your life are limitless. When you feel assured from the inside, it empowers change to your whole perception and your overall satisfaction day to day.

The results from receiving male breast reduction are permanent. Many patients enjoy a lifetime of successful results from the procedure performed only once.

Male breast reduction is a popular option for those who have tried diet and exercise, but still do not see improvement. New York patients who choose to have the male breast reduction procedure, usually come out of the experience with advanced confidence and an overall feeling of bliss in the way that they look and feel.
