A male breast reduction, also know as gynecomastia, can boost a man’s self-esteem. Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Suzanne Yee and her team understand the needs and concern of their male patients.
DR. SUZANNE YEE: Gynecomastia are large breasts in men, and can by very much of a hindrance to a man or a young man because they’re afraid to take their shirt off. If you’re a teenager and you have large breasts, you may not want to go to the pool, you may not want to take your shirt off because everyone sees that you have breast tissue there. Typically, I would do liposuction or baser liposuction to reduce the breast tissue in a man. And it’s just 2-3 small incisions around the breast and we baser, or melt the fat and then we liposuction the fat. Occasionally, there’s glandular tissue that we have to remove and then we’ll make a small incision around the areola, around the nipple area and remove the glandular tissue, but that’s very rare.
MALE VOICE: On my breast reduction, I got up the next morning and went back on my routine. I had no problems at all. I feel good about myself and other people see me, that I have a more challenging attitude then I did when I was kind of overweight.
