Male Breast Reduction Before and After Pictures Boca Raton, FL

People don’t always understand that enlarged male breasts aren’t always the result of being overweight or out of shape. A condition known as “gynecomastia” may actually be to blame, and you may be surprised to know that almost half of all men have this condition to some degree. Regardless of why you have enlarged breasts, you just want them gone.

What Is Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)?

Gynecomastia, or male breast reduction, is a surgical procedure that removes excess breast tissue and fat, giving you a more toned, masculine chest that people will notice for the right reasons. So throw out all those baggy sweatshirts and over-sized t-shirts and get ready for the beach!

Is Gynecomastia Surgery Right for Me?

Dr. Farber recommends gynecomastia for men who are over the age of 18, which is when a man’s body is generally considered fully developed. Gynecomastia can also be caused by puberty and may resolve on its own as a boy ages. The procedure requires the use of general anesthesia, so you need to be in good general health for this and any other surgical procedure.

How Is Male Breast Reduction Performed?

The surgery normally takes about two hours, but your male breast reduction may take more time, depending on the extent of the surgery needed to remove the excess tissue. Dr. Farber works carefully to remove excess fat and breast tissue and sculpt the remaining tissue and muscle to give you a more attractive and masculine shape.

How Much Does Male Breast Reduction Cost in Boca Raton, FL?

In some cases, male breast reduction may be covered by insurance if it is deemed “medically necessary” by your insurance carrier. Successful male breast reduction surgery can be quite challenging for some plastic surgeons because they may approach the surgery in the same manner as a breast reduction for women. Dr. Farber understands the long-term consequences to patients who receive this type of “one-size-fits-all” approach to plastic surgery. When you choose Dr. Farber as your cosmetic surgery partner, you can feel confident that you are receiving the highest quality, individualized care. Farber Plastic Surgery offers several financing options to help you manage the cost of your male breast reduction.

On the Road to Recovery

Part of recovering from male breast reduction is the use of a special compression garment. While it may be a bit uncomfortable, it is a critical part of your recovery and the outcome of your male breast reduction. Another important aspect of recovery is rest — even if you feel like your energy is returning, you should follow Dr. Farber’s post-procedure instructions carefully.
