Get a Flatter, More Masculine Chest 

What is Gynecomastia Surgery? 

Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure that creates a flatter, more masculine chest in men with gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. Gynecomastia can be caused by a variety of factors, but it’s common for men with gynecomastia to experience low self-esteem in situations where it’s common to go shirtless. Gynecomastia surgery can reduce these symptoms and help men enjoy greater confidence in day-to-day life.

“This was my second consultation with Dr. Rostami. She was very personable, made great recommendations, and did not try to “up sell” me on anything. I feel very confident in her hands for my upcoming procedures.”

Am I A Good Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery? 

Good candidates for gynecomastia surgery are men who have enlarged, female-like breasts. They may often face ridicule or teasing for their breasts and avoid taking their shirt off at the beach or pool. You should be in good overall health and able to undergo surgery – our team will review your medical history and determine if it’s a good fit during a consultation. 

Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery 

The benefits of gynecomastia surgery include: 

  • Flatter, more masculine chest 
  • Better clothing fit 
  • Greater confidence 

The Gynecomastia Procedure 

Gynecomastia can be performed using local anesthetic and sedation, depending on your unique procedure. It can involve surgical excision (typically reserved for enlarged breast tissue), liposuction (typically reserved for fat tissue), or a combination of both. Our team will go over your detailed surgical plan during a consultation. An incision will be made and the appropriate techniques will be performed to remove tissue. If sagging skin is present, it can be excised. Once complete, you can return home to recover.

Gynecomastia Surgery Results 

You will have some swelling and discomfort for the first few weeks, and our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions.

With a healthy and active lifestyle, your results can last for many years to come.
