Many men are self-conscious about extra fat and firm tissue that can form on the chest, creating the appearance of feminine breasts. Fortunately, this condition (known as gynecomastia) can be treated with a procedure sometimes referred to as “male breast reduction.”
If living with gynecomastia has you working hard to camouflage the appearance of your upper chest, choosing the clothing you wear very carefully and avoiding certain situations completely, take heart. Dr. Dean Kane can have you back in the gym and swimming pool with straightforward, low risk plastic surgery. Maryland men are invited to request a private consultation with Dr. Kane today.

Two variations of this procedure may be used, depending on your needs. If fat, skin and glandular tissue need to be removed, the procedure will be performed using a scalpel or scalpel-liposuction approach. For this procedure, the incision can usually be placed discreetly in the underarm area or around the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple). If only fatty tissue needs to be removed, the procedure can be done with liposuction alone, which entails a much smaller incision.
Gynecomastia patients experience some swelling and soreness that normally lasts for one to two weeks. Most people rest for a few days, then go back to work and start resuming light activities.
