Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is a common problem for men of all ages. It occurs when the chest overdevelops, creating a soft and feminine appearance. Although it’s a benign issue and not associated with any health problems, the condition can result in severe emotional distress. Fortunately, it’s 100% treatable with the help of our board-certified surgeons, who are able to reduce unwanted fat in the chest area and restore a more masculine look.

An overview of gynecomastia

Male breast enlargement can be caused by a variety of factors, including a hormone imbalance, hyperthyroidism, medications and genetics. Regardless of the cause, the condition can have a huge impact on your quality of life, causing embarrassment and preventing you from taking off your shirt in public.

As such, many of our Beverly Hills clients will first attempt to address the issue on their own, through an aggressive diet and exercise routine. Unfortunately, these attempts are typically unsuccessful, as male breast enlargement has to be addressed surgically for the best results.

Benefits of gynecomastia surgery

When performed correctly by a highly skilled surgeon with an artistic eye, gynecomastia surgery can transform your appearance in incredible ways. For men with overly large, feminine breasts, the procedure has the ability to:

  • Sculpt masculine contours
  • Reduce excess breast tissue
  • Increase social confidence and self-esteem
  • Renew your ability to take off your shirt in public
  • Deliver permanent results

The Roxbury difference

At The Roxbury Institute, we approach every client with fresh eyes. We will never perform a routine, cookie-cutter procedure for gynecomastia, because we know that custom techniques result in the best possible treatment outcomes. As such, we will spend your one-hour consultation carefully assessing the appearance of your chest, learning about your goals and determining the precise surgical approach you need. Once we’ve completely educated you on the procedure and composed a customized surgical plan that you feel comfortable with, we will schedule your surgery.

What to expect during gynecomastia surgery

In performing gynecomastia surgery, our primary goal is to reduce as much excess tissue as possible, while restoring a flat and masculine appearance. To that end, we will begin with gentle and precise liposuction, as our surgeons have had incredible results resolving male breast enlargement with this procedure.

To begin, we’ll administer general anesthesia, which will ensure that you are completely asleep and safe. From there, we’ll insert a small cannula in the area, moving the tube back and forth to break up and remove unwanted fat cells. As a team of board-certified dermatologic surgeons, we have perfected the art of chest liposuction, and will never simply remove fat in a uniform and thoughtless manner. Rather, we’ll strategically sculpt and contour your chest with the goal of creating a proportionate and distinctly masculine look.

In many cases, liposuction alone is enough to reduce unwanted fat for our Beverly Hills patients. However, some clients with a lot of glandular breast tissue and excess skin may also require tissue excision for optimal results. In this case, we will make a precise incision under the areola and carefully remove the excess tissue and skin through that opening.
