Male Breast Reduction Surgery in Beverly Hills

Boost your confidence to go shirt-less again.

Breast surgery is a largely female-dominated experience. However, in recent years, an increasing number of men are inquiring about the possibility of male breast reduction surgery to transform the appearance of their chest, and increase their confidence and self-esteem.

Why might a man need male breast reduction surgery?

Both men and women are born with breast tissue. As women get older, their breast tissue begins to develop. This normally happens when they reach puberty. Some men may find their breast tissue also developing. When men develop excess breast tissue, it is known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a relatively common condition. However, it can cause significantly negative psychological effects including anxiety, embarrassment, and loss of self-esteem.

Some men feel that excess breast tissue compromises their masculinity. As a result, many sufferers of gynecomastia find themselves avoiding situations where they may need to be bare-chested.

Are you a man suffering from gynecomastia? You don’t need to suffer any longer. Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy, a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience and a renowned reputation, offers male breast surgery to patients in the Beverly Hills area.

Why does excess breast tissue occur in men?

No one knows exactly why some men develop excess breast tissue. In many cases, fluctuating hormone levels during puberty can cause breast tissue to remain enlarged. Aging has also been attributed to excess male breast tissue. This is because when testosterone levels begin to decline, collagen production slows, saggy skin and increased weight. Each of these factors can contribute towards the appearance of enlarged breast tissue.

Some prescription medications have been linked to gynecomastia, including those used to treat heartburn, stomach ulcers, fungal infections and high blood pressure. If your excess breast tissue is a result of a medication you are taking, you should speak to your doctor to see what alternatives may be available.

What Happens During Male Breast Reduction?
Gynecomastia surgery is a reduction procedure that focuses on breaking down and removing excess breast tissue. It usually takes under two hours and is performed while the patient is under a general anesthetic.

The male breast reduction is performed through a small incision into the chest, by which the excess tissue is broken up and removed using a syringe, or using a liposuction vacuum pump. If there is an extensive amount of tissue to be removed, several incisions may be necessary and the nipples may need to be repositioned.

Recovery from Male Breast Reduction Surgery
You should expect to stay overnight after your male breast surgery, so you can receive the care and attention you need after your procedure. You should also expect to wear a compression garment for at least two to three weeks after your surgery, which will help to support your chest and expedite healing.

Although you may be able to return to work within a few days, it can take a few weeks for you to feel completely normal and be able to take part in your usual day to day activities.

Some swelling and bruising is completely normal, and pain medications can help with any discomfort that you feel. Although the swelling may subside after a few weeks, it can take up to six months to see the final result of your surgery and for the scarring to start to fade.

Dr. Lesavoy will give you specific aftercare advice and his instructions should be followed precisely, in order for you to make the most efficient recovery from your male breast surgery.

If you are suffering from gynecomastia, then your excess breast tissue doesn’t need to get in the way of your life any longer. Male breast surgery can transform the appearance of your chest and give you back the confidence you deserve.

Uncertainty and Risk with Male Breast Reduction Surgery
When male breast reduction surgery is performed by a qualified surgeon such as Dr. Lesavoy, complications are infrequent and usually minor. Nevertheless, as with any surgery, there are risks. These include infection, skin injury, excessive bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, and excessive fluid loss or accumulation. The procedure may also result in noticeable scars, permanent pigment changes in the breast area, or slightly mismatched breasts or nipples. If asymmetry is significant, a second procedure may be performed to remove additional tissue.

The temporary effects of breast reduction include loss of breast sensation or numbness, which may last up to a year.
