Have you ever been in a public space and wanted to remove your shirt, but were uncomfortable due to excess male breast tissue? Whether you wanted to go for an outdoor run or play at the pool with your kids, you may find that the appearance of male breasts can make you feel incredibly self-conscious about your appearance to others. Men who are dealing with excess breast tissue, a condition known as gynecomastia, are excited to learn about certain cosmetic surgery procedures that can help, including the male breast reduction surgery.

What is male breast reduction?

Men who have gynecomastia may be excellent candidates for male breast reduction. This surgical procedure is performed to eliminate the appearance of excess male breast tissues and glands. Dr. Homayoun Sasson and his team in Great Neck, NY are pleased to provide solutions for these patients to help them regain their confidence.

What causes excess breast tissue in males?

There are many reasons why gynecomastia may occur. Some patients have a genetic predisposition to gynecomastia due to family genetics. Others may have the condition due to hormonal changes or the use of certain medications. Regardless, our team can help in reducing the tissues and improving overall contours of the chest area.

What can be expected from male breast reduction?

Surgery for gynecomastia is performed at our practice with general or local anesthetics. It is an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require an overnight hospital stay. During the surgery, the doctor will make an incision along the areola to remove glandular tissues through liposuction. The area is sutured and requires time to heal. The scarring left behind from the procedure is often disguised with the areola and is not very noticeable to others.
