Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Men who have abnormally large breasts, called gynecomastia, can also benefit from breast reduction surgery. This abnormal appearing chest contour can be improved with male breast reduction surgery. The results of the procedure are significant and permanent. The benefits of male breast reduction are not only physical – producing firmer, flatter, more masculine chest contours – but emotional as well as self-esteem is many times improved.
This corrective procedure, however, is not a replacement for diet and exercise for the patient who is significantly overweight. Dr. Singer uses techniques to achieve a natural, masculine appearance. Most men who have undergone breast reduction report a boost in their self-esteem and confidence.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure
Removal of the fatty and glandular tissue of the breast which creates the abnormally full appearance can usually be achieved through liposuction alone, leaving only small inconspicuous scars. Rarely, in extreme cases with poor elasticity of the skin, larger incisions to redrape the skin may be necessary.
The male breast reduction procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis. The surgery can be performed in the hospital or at our center, depending on your general medical condition. Frequently, other breast sculpting procedures are performed in conjunction with male breast reduction. These procedures include the reduction of large areolae (colored areas around the nipples), the correction of inverted nipples, and the reduction of overly prominent nipples.
