About Gynecomastia

Abnormal male breast enlargement or gynecomastia, is quite common but rarely talked about. Gynecomastia results from the overdevelopment of the male breast tissue, an over- accumulation of fat on the chest or a combination of the two – fat and breast glands. The breast skin may be involved (sagging or ptotic skin) to varying degrees as well. Gynecomastia is a condition that affects up to 50% of young and older men. Genetics, massive weight gain, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, marijuana, and performance enhancing drugs (steroids) are all cited as causes of gynecomastia.

However, this condition can be corrected by male breast reduction (gynecomastia) surgery. During this procedure, Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank L. Stile will remove fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts. In some cases, excess skin must also be removed.The result is a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured. The goal for patients is a more masculine appearance. Several techniques are used by Dr. Stile to treat patients who want male breast reduction or correction of gynecomastia. Dr. Stile either uses less-invasive, suction-assisted lipectomy (liposuction) techniques, directly excises (cuts out) the gland through a small incision, or uses a combination of both liposuction and excision for correction.

Ideal Candidates

Since excess breast tissue can be caused by medical conditions other than gynecomastia, a doctor should confirm the cause before treatment. Ideal candidates will have:

  • A healthy body weight
  • Fat and breast tissue that is resistant to diet and exercise
  • Good skin elasticity
  • Overall good health

What to Expect

Male breast reduction surgery usually involves a combination of surgical tissue removal and liposuction. The plastic surgeon will make an incision (usually around the areola) and remove dense breast tissue with surgical excision. Then the plastic surgeon can remove any excess fat with liposuction to create a smooth contour. After the surgery, patients will have their chest bandaged and in a compression garment that should be worn at all times. Patients should rest and move their upper body as little as possible for at least 3 days. Most patients can return to work in 7 – 10 days and resume lower impact exercise in 2 – 3 weeks. The surgeon will go over specific recovery instructions and any prescribed medication.

Anticipated Results

Results from male breast reduction are usually seen at least 3 months after the surgery when the swelling has subsided. It may take 6 – 12 months for the skin to tighten and form to the new chest shape. The results of male breast reduction surgery will be permanent as long as the patient maintains a healthy, stable weight, but natural signs of aging (like loose skin) will continue.
