Gynecomastia Surgery

What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a medical term used to describe enlarged breasts in male patients.  This condition is actually quite common, affecting up to 40 to 60 percent of adolescent males during their pubertal development and may affect either one or both breasts.  However, most cases of adolescent gynecomastia resolve spontaneously with the transition to adulthood.  For those males with persistent post-pubertal gynecomastia, surgical removal of excess breast tissue is appropriate.

The Male Breast Reduction Procedure

Performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure at a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’), gynecomastia excision involves the removal of excess glandular and fatty tissue from the breasts in order to reestablish an optimal male chest wall contour.  This procedure is usually performed through small, approximately 1 inch, incisions located at the border of the areolae (pigmented tissue surrounding the nipples) and is frequently combined with liposuction to enhance the transition between the breasts and surrounding chest wall contour.  In cases of more advanced Gynecomastia with ptotic or ‘drooping’ breasts, removal of excess skin may be required.  Surgery lasts between 1-2 hours and patients may be discharged to home after a brief recovery period.  Most men may then return to work in 5 to 7 days, while using a snugly-fitting compression vest concealed beneath their clothing for several weeks.
