Home » Breast » Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia excision in Manhattan, performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Z, is a procedure designed to treat enlarged male breasts. It is a solution for individuals who struggle with excess glandular tissue or fatty deposits in the chest, helping to restore a more masculine contour and boost self-confidence.

Eliminate Excess Male Breast Tissue

Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is a surgical procedure to eliminate excess glandular tissue and fat from the male chest. It is commonly performed to treat gynecomastia, a condition characterized by the enlargement of male breasts. During the surgery, Dr. Z carefully removes the excess tissue to restore a flatter, more contoured chest, resulting in improved self-esteem and body image for the patient.

  • Enlarged male breasts

  • Psychological distress caused by gynecomastia

Your Gynecomastia Surgery Options

Liposuction-Only Technique

The liposuction-only technique for gynecomastia surgery is a minimally invasive option focusing on removing excess fatty tissue in the male chest. This procedure involves small incisions through which a thin cannula is inserted to suction out the unwanted fat deposits. Gynecomastia excision in Manhattan suits individuals with primarily fatty gynecomastia and minimal glandular tissue enlargement. The liposuction-only technique typically results in shorter recovery time and less scarring than more extensive surgical procedures.

Puncture Incision Technique

Dr. Z offers the puncture incision technique as one of the gynecomastia surgery options. This approach allows her to remove excess glandular tissue through a very small puncture, resulting in minimal scarring. The puncture incision technique is suitable for patients with moderate glandular tissue enlargement. It effectively reduces enlarged male breasts while minimizing visible scarring, allowing patients to enjoy a more sculpted chest.

Results: What Can I Expect?

After gynecomastia surgery, you can expect to see initial results immediately, although some swelling and bruising may obscure the final outcome. As the healing process progresses, the swelling subsides, and the full results become more apparent within a few weeks. The outcome of the surgery is intended to be long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. While the effects of aging and natural body changes may occur over time, the reduction in enlarged male breasts achieved through surgery is typically permanent.
