Male Breast Reduction Sculpts the Chest for a More Masculine Physique

Image of patient after gynecomastia surgeryDr. Brian F. Burns performs male breast reduction surgery at his Victoria, TX, practice, implementing a variety of modern techniques to sculpt and smooth the male chest with minimal scarring.

As many as 50 percent of men in the U.S. are affected by gynecomastia, or the enlargement of male breast tissue. Breast enlargement in males is often the result of weight gain or obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, or poor physical health. 

Candidates for Male Breast Reduction

If you have been unsuccessful at reducing the size of your breasts through diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for gynecomastia surgery.

Most men pursue surgery because they feel self-conscious about their appearance, and it begins to affect their quality of life. Ideal candidates are men who are at a stable, healthy weight, in good overall health, and who do not smoke.

Your Consultation

Dr. Burns has extensive training and experience in breast surgery for both men and women. During your consultation, he will thoroughly review your medical history as well as your current health and weight. Together, you will discuss your treatment goals and desired outcomes. Dr. Burns will thoroughly examine your breasts to determine which surgical technique will be most effective.

If enlarged breasts are the result of excess fatty tissue, he can use liposuction to eliminate fat and reduce the size of your breasts. If your breasts are enlarged due to excess glandular tissue and skin, he can use an excision technique. Once he determines which technique to use, he will discuss incision placement options. Together, you can decide the optimal placement of incisions for minimal visibility of scars.

Dr. Burns is here to restore your self-confidence and help you to once again feel proud of your physique.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure

Liposuction Technique

Once you are sedated with general anesthesia, Dr. Burns will create a small incision in each breast and remove fat through suction. Once a sufficient amount of tissue has been removed, he will suture your incisions.

Excision Technique

This technique also requires the use of general anesthesia. Once you are sedated, Dr. Burns will create incisions in each breast, through which he will remove excess breast tissue and skin. If necessary, he can reposition the nipple and areola. Once complete, your incisions will be sutured.

Your Recovery

Gynecomastia surgery typically takes one to two hours to complete, and requires about one week off from work. You will need to wear a support garment during this time, and must be diligent about caring for your incisions and changing bandages.

After the first week, you can slowly return to physical activity; however, you should avoid chest exercises and weight lifting for several weeks.

Benefits of Male Breast Reduction

Once you have completely healed from surgery, you will notice that your breasts look more natural and proportionate to the rest of your body.

You will enjoy a more masculine figure with minimal scarring, and will likely experience great improvements in your confidence and self-esteem.
