The sudden development of female-like breasts is a problem for many men. Enlarged breasts can make them feel like their bodies are undesirable and affect their sense of masculinity. Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands their distress and performs discreet and safe gynecomastia surgery for individuals in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and all of South Florida at his practice in Aventura.
What Is Gynecomastia?
Millions of boys and men suffer from gynecomastia, which is an overdevelopment of the breasts because of genetics, or possibly an imbalance of hormones. The condition can make them feel self-conscious and embarrassed. If treating the hormonal imbalance does not work, the individuals could have the size of their breasts reduced through liposuction techniques or through incisions to remove the excess breast tissue and fat.
Dr. Rubinstein performs male breast reduction surgery for healthy men at his practice in Aventura. He understands the psychological and physical reasons for wanting the surgery. If you are searching for a top-notch gynecomastia surgeon, we encourage you to book a consultation.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Male Breast Reduction?
If you have a history of anabolic steroid use, have lost or gained a lot of weight, or suffer from a hormonal imbalance or glandular problem, even one that began when you were a teenager, you might be considering male breast reduction. You are an ideal candidate for the procedure if you are healthy overall and have firm skin to help reshape the contour of your chest.
The procedure may help address several concerns:
- Abnormal appearance that clothing does not cover easily
- Asymmetry in the size of your chest or breasts
- Depression or psychological distress related to how you look
- Difficulty finding appropriately fitting clothes
- Self-consciousness about how prominent your breasts or nipples appear
- Unwanted harassment or attention
How Is Male Breast Reduction Performed?
Dr. Rubinstein uses general anesthesia for male breast reduction, and the surgery usually lasts one to three hours depending on the extent of the surgery. First he will make small incisions around the nipples and other places on the chest in preparation for liposuction. The technique utilizes a cannula or small metal tube that sucks out the fatty tissue and portions of glandular tissue. The glandular tissue is sometimes extracted through the incisions around the nipples if necessary. After contouring the area, Dr. Rubinstein will close the incisions with sutures, leaving the chest firmer and flatter.
Most gynecomastia patients are able to return home the same day after the procedure. However, the procedure could take longer. You might need to stay for observation if you have other plastic surgeries performed at the same time, such as a tummy tuck
to eliminate loose skin or excess fat at your waist or liposuction elsewhere on your body.
What Should I Expect Following the Male Breast Reduction Procedure For Gynecomastia?
Even though you could be out of bed in a day or two, you need to avoid strenuous activities for at least five days. You should be able to resume normal activities such as work after three weeks, but you need to wait six weeks before you start to exercise again. We will schedule follow-up visits with you to ensure that your recovery is progressing well.
Most men who have male breast reduction are pleased with the results. The procedure helps them rebuild their confidence and makes them feel more masculine, allowing them to feel more comfortable in fitted shirts and when standing up straight.
