The Male Breast Reduction Procedure
Gynecomastia reduction surgery is performed using liposuction. During the procedure, Dr. Linville will skillfully remove all excess fat and tissue through a small incision.
After the excess fat and tissue are cleared, the extra skin will be removed. Dr. Linville may also make necessary changes to the nipples and areolas to achieve the chest transformation. After completing this, Dr. Linville will close the incision to reveal the patient’s newly transformed chest area.
Breast reduction surgery is unique to each patient and depends on their goals. Some patients may want an understated change to their chest area. Other patients may want a full transformation. The ideal chest is different for each patient.
During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to convey your specific goals. Dr. Linville listens to your needs and develops a matching plan accordingly.
Candidates for Male Breast Reduction
One of the most important qualities for a candidate is healthy expectations. Dr. Linville keeps you informed every step of the way, so you will know what this procedure can do for you.
Before choosing a surgical reduction, we often recommend exploring alternatives. However, if the cause of your enlarged breasts is hormonal, reduction surgery is often the best solution. For other causes, such as medication or alcohol consumption, lifestyle changes can deliver the changes you want.
Below are three aspects we look for in potential reduction patients:
- In good overall health
- Over the age of 18
