1.Gynecomastia - male breast reduction.jpg


A well-defined chest is one of the most sought-after physical attributes for men. While the ideal amount of definition can usually be achieved through a healthy diet and regular exercise, these efforts may prove to be unsuccessful for those with gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts in men.

This condition makes it impossible to reduce the appearance of excess tissue with diet or exercise alone. Gynecomastia can be caused by many factors, such as hormones, supplements, certain medications and weight fluctuations, but even thin men can experience symptoms. Fortunately, these cosmetic concerns can be addressed with a male breast reduction.

While treatment may seem straightforward, it requires a great deal of technical skill and a keen sense of aesthetics. Men undergoing a breast reduction don’t want to look altered, but this sometimes occurs when too much tissue is removed, or when the nipples are not appropriately repositioned (as may occur in cases where skin needs to be removed, and the nipple needs to be elevated). Our surgeons combine artistry with surgical precision to produce the most natural-looking results possible. Guided by artistic insight, surgeon can visualize what improvements are necessary to restore a masculine appearance to the chest without overcorrecting.



Depending on the severity of your gynecomastia, one of a series of surgical options may be used to reduce the size of enlarged breasts. The severity of the condition can be categorized in multiple ways:

Type I: A localized protrusion of tissue that is concentrated around the areola only. This is the mildest form of the condition and may cause the nipples to look “puffy.”

Type II: Moderate enlargement that’s restricted directly around the areola.

Type III: Moderate enlargement that’s grown past the edges of the areola and excess skin.

Type IV: Marked enlargement with excess skin, sagging nipples, and feminization of the breast.


Gynecomastia can cause significant self-esteem issues in men who cannot remove enlarged breasts naturally. Candidates for male breast reduction identify with this insecurity and desire to correct it through surgical means. Ideal candidates do not smoke, are in good overall health and close to their goal weight, and have realistic expectations of their results.
