What's New

While male breast reduction has been available for several decades, it has gained visibility and popularity in recent years. This is part of a general trend of men becoming more comfortable with the idea of cosmetic plastic surgery. For men with gynecomastia, our Westchester, New York, surgeons offer various methods to re-contour the chest. Typically, liposuction is used to remove excess fat in the breast. Liposuction may be combined with surgical excision if there is enough excess tissue to be removed.

Procedure Overview

In general, male breast reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you'll be sent home the day of your surgery to begin recovery. Incisions are typically made around the areola, and excess fat and tissue are removed. Smartlipo™ may be used to reshape the chest for those who are candidates.

After the procedure, a dressing will be applied to help minimize swelling and bruising. This dressing should be worn for about a week following your procedure, and should be removed for showering or bathing purposes. Recovery from your New York male breast reduction surgery depends on many factors, including the extent of the procedure, your general health, and how well you follow post-surgical instructions.
