Large, feminine-looking breasts are estimated to affect almost half of the male population. This condition, known as “gynecomastia,” can have a huge negative effect on a man’s self-esteem and self-confidence.

You do not have to hide under loose shirts and bulky clothing any longer. Many men in the Tarrytown and Tri-State areas have gained self-confidence and the freedom to expose their chests through male breast reduction in New York. The New York Group for Plastic Surgery’s warm, caring staff provides a compassionate and discrete cosmetic surgery experience for their patients. With a 27-year commitment to the area, you can trust that our skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeons will be here for you.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia, also known as “male breast reduction,” which causes pronounced nipples and enlarged breasts, often affects adolescent males during puberty and can continue into adulthood. Common factors linked to this condition include:

  • Obesity
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Impaired liver function
  • Taking certain prescription medications, marijuana, or anabolic steroids

Once the underlying cause of the gynecomastia has been successfully treated, many males will continue to have a large, rounded chest appearance that can be revised only through surgery.

Improvements from Breast Reduction for Men in New York

Men of all ages and backgrounds benefit from male breast reduction in New York, but this procedure is especially beneficial for men who:

  • Cannot resolve their condition through other means, such as weight loss
  • Maintain a healthy, stable weight
  • Avoid drug use and smoking

Our practice, which takes pride in a specialized approach to patient care, provides a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures for men including liposuction in New York to reduce stubborn fat deposits on many areas of the body, and eyelid surgery to restore a refreshed eye area appearance. Feel free to discuss these possibilities with your surgeon at your confidential consultation. Be sure to view before-and-after photos to see results of our actual patients.

What to Expect From Your Male Breast Reduction in New York

Your breast reduction surgery will be performed in our on-site, outpatient facility and requires only a minimal recovery period. In some cases, gynecomastia can be effectively resolved through liposuction alone, while other cases will require a combination of surgical excision and liposuction. Either way, plan on having someone drive you home the day of your surgery.

You should be able to return to light activity, including work, within 1 to 2 days after your surgery. More vigorous activity and exercise will be limited for at least the first month. To prevent your gynecomastia from reoccurring, be sure to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

Breast reduction for men in New York improves quality of life and enhances self-esteem. Our patients often gain the confidence to wear tailored shirts around town, fitted t-shirts to the gym, or even go swimming without a shirt at all.
