Male Breast Reduction

Ideal Patient:

  • Lack of masculine contour to chest
  • Abnormally large breasts in men (gynecomastia)
  • Overdeveloped or enlarged male breasts caused by hormonal changes, heredity, disease or use of certain drugs
  • Self-consciousness due to large male breasts

The Method:

Male breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) reduces breast size, flattens and enhances the chest contours in men suffering from gynecomastia. For male breast reduction patients who have stretched areolae, the position and size of the areolae can be surgically improved.

For some male breast reduction patients, a reduction mammaplasty may be considered reconstructive and is covered by some insurance carriers.

The Procedure:

If gynecomastia is primarily caused by excess fat deposits, only liposuction treatments may be needed. Small incisions are made at the perimeter of the areola, the natural contours of the chest or the underarm area. A cannula is inserted to suction excess fat deposits.

Gynecomastia may also be treated by surgically removing excess fat, glandular breast tissue and sometimes skin. In some cases, both procedures may be used.

“I would definitely recommend Dr. Kagan”

I went to see Dr Kagan because one of the breasts implants deflated and I needed and wanted to have the surgery quickly because my breasts looked different. The staff was extremely nice and understanding especially Sue. I had my surgery few days ago (very quickly from my consult appt.) and so far I am very pleased with what Dr Kagan did. I decided to do both breasts. Dr. Kagan is really nice, takes his time during the consult and everyone in the office is extremely nice. Would definitely recommend Dr. Kagan. If I had to do it again he would have been my first choice. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kagan.
