Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction

Introduction to

At Aesthetic Contours in the Inland Empire, male breast reduction is one of our most common procedures performed on males. Though few people talk about it, gynecomastia – or the swelling of breast tissue in men and boys – is common. It affects an estimated 40-60% of men. It can affect one breast or both. Although certain drugs and medical problems are linked to gynecomastia, there is no known cause in the majority of cases. For men who are self-conscious about their breasts, male breast reduction surgery at Aesthetic Contours by Dr. Heidari can help. The procedure removes fat and glandular tissue from the breasts and, in extreme cases, excess skin may also be removed. The result is a chest that is flatter, firmer, with a more athletic appearance.

What is Male Breast Reduction?

Aesthetic Contours

Gynecomastia occurs frequently among teenage males because of hormone fluctuations but naturally resolves itself over time in most cases. When gynecomastia does not resolve by itself, Dr. Heidari will perform a breast reduction, as large breasts can be embarrassing and in some cases create psychological and social problems.

Surgery is discouraged for men who are overweight unless they have first attempted to correct the problem with exercise or weight loss. For some men the condition is hereditary; for others, medical conditions such as cancer and impaired liver function contribute to the problem.

What to Expect on the Day of Male Breast Reduction

Aesthetic Contours

Dr. Heidari performs male breast reduction surgery on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. A small incision is made at the bottom of the areola (the brown area encircling the nipple). Dr. Heidari then removes any excessive glandular tissue and skin. He often compliments the procedure with liposuction for optimal contouring of the chest.

Surgery Time: The surgery generally takes about two hours.

After your surgery, you will be able to return home, but you should line up a friend or family member to take you home. Your chest will likely be wrapped to help reduce swelling. Some swelling, bruising and numbness are normal and will subside over time. Sometimes, drainage tubes are used for the first two to three days to help remove excess fluid.

You can return to work within four to seven days. You will need to wear an elastic pressure garment for four to six weeks, and you should limit sports and strenuous activity for three to four weeks after the surgery. Patients should avoid direct sun exposure or salon tanning for six months.

Stitches are removed in one to two weeks following surgery.
