How Can I Get Rid of Gynecomastia?

If you are struggling with the appearance of your chest due to an excess of fat and/or breast tissue, board-certified plastic surgeon Joseph DiBello, MD may be able to help you achieve smoother, tighter, more masculine chest contours with a customized male breast reduction procedure. A common condition called gynecomastia is often the cause for the overdevelopment of male breasts, and unfortunately it is very difficult to treat without surgical assistance. While in some cases weight loss, muscle building exercises, and/or the cessation of certain medications may be helpful in modifying the appearance of the chest to a certain degree, the effectiveness is typically limited. Exercise and lifestyle changes are unfortunately unable to remove breast tissue, eliminate all stubborn fat deposits, reduce excess skin, and/or resculpt the chest to create optimal cosmetic results; however, male breast reduction surgery can potentially accomplish all of these goals to give you the most satisfying outcome.

To treat the appearance of gynecomastia, Dr. DiBello can utilize a variety of surgical methods, including liposuction and excision techniques, to precisely recontour the chest. The technique(s) used will depend upon the composition of the chest as well as the quantity and condition of any excess skin that is present. For patients with primarily excess fat tissue and good skin elasticity, liposuction alone may be sufficient for creating an optimal result. In all instances, Dr. DiBello develops a customized surgical plan designed to meet each patient’s needs and goals with the least amount of visible scarring. Following male breast reduction surgery, Dr. DiBello’s patients are generally thrilled with their results and discover a sense of renewed confidence in their physique.
