Reveal contours, renewed confidence with male breast reduction surgery in Beverly Hills
Plastic surgery is changing. More men are opting for procedures to improve their appearance and confidence. It’s estimated half of all men in the U.S. will have some degree of gynecomastia or enlarged breasts during their lifetimes, due to factors like hormonal changes. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dennis Dass tailors male breast reduction surgery in Beverly Hills to your unique needs.
Dr. Dass will discuss several considerations with you, including:
- Medical conditions
- Risk factors
- Potential underlying causes
Additional diagnostics including endocrine function testing may be ordered.
Gynecomastia is usually approached with:
- Liposuction to suck out excess fat through needles connected to a surgical vacuum or syringe
- Reduction mammoplasty to remove glandular tissue through incisions
A combination of techniques may be recommended, depending on your concerns and the degree of improvement desired.
Lipo for gynecomastia
Medications are administered for utmost comfort. Often small incisions are made on both sides of the chest, along the edge of the areola, or in your armpit. Excess fat is removed through these incisions.
Excision for gynecomastia
For more severe cases of gynecomastia, such as stretching and sagging around the breasts, lipo alone may not suffice. More glandular tissue and skin can be removed with excisions that are often located around the edge of the areola or natural chest creases. The areola itself may be reduced or the nipple repositioned for more natural contours.
Life after surgery
Both techniques are well-tolerated. Dr. Dass advises on compression garments, worn to minimize swelling and to support healing for a few weeks post-surgery. Many patients return to work within days of surgery, and you can return to exercise gradually in the ensuing weeks. Results are typically permanent, but can be affected by weight gain and medications. Call (855) 496-4646 to discover your treatment options.Back to Male Breast Reduction Surgery Page
