Breast Reduction Surgery for Men with Gynecomastia (Enlarged Breast Tissue)

Breast Reduction for Men | Before and After

Enlarged breasts do not only afflict women – the condition also affects many men and can be the source of significant self-consciousness. Dr. Cook offers male breast reduction surgery to help men who suffer from gynecomastia, the medical term for excess fatty or glandular tissue in the male chest area. Often beginning in adolescence, gynecomastia is more common than most people realize. In severe cases it can lead to a lack of self-confidence and cause the patient to avoid circumstances that would draw attention to his chest, such as going to the beach or swimming.

A variety of techniques are available to correct this issue. Dr. Cook makes the specific selection based upon the degree of loose skin and the relative amounts of glandular and fatty enlargement. In many cases, the surgery can be accomplished entirely with laser lipoplasty (I.e., Smartlipo® or Slimlipo® technology) or with Vaser® lipoplasty, an advanced form of ultrasonic liposuction.  If this is the case, the only scars are tiny incisions in discreet locations.
