What is Male Breast Reduction?

Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breast tissue in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia surgery targets this tissue to provide a masculine contour to the chest.

Candidates for Male Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is a good option for you if:

  • You are physically healthy
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You don’t smoke
  • You are bothered by the feeling that you have female-looking breasts
  • You’re self-conscious about your body as a result of having breasts

How Does It Work?

Male breast reduction is performed by a plastic surgeon who will remove glandular tissue and liposuction fat out of the chest area. Combining the two treatments helps ensure that you won’t see a regrowth in breast tissue, plus you’ll have a more masculine chest contour. During your breast reduction procedure, glandular breast tissue and fat are removed, while the nipple is repositioned to reflect how a male chest appears.


Your male breast reduction results can be seen right away; in fact, many patients often remark that they instantly feel better with the disappearance of female-looking breasts. Male breast reduction procedures have high patient satisfaction rates; results are long-lasting, as most glandular tissue is removed during the procedure.


The initial recovery period from a breast reduction procedure usually takes about six weeks. You should expect to wear a compression garment around the chest for the first few weeks after your procedure, as this helps keep the post-surgical swelling down.

You’ll have some swelling and bruising, so be sure to avoid sleeping on your side or stomach. You should be able to return to work the first week after the procedure and get back to normal physical activity within the third or fourth week, depending on your plastic surgeon’s advice.
