If you are a male who is reluctant to remove your shirt in public, to swim, to participate in sports, or to exercise at a gym because of large breasts, you may wish to consider a male breast reduction. Dr. Robert Brueck has offices in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Punta Gorda, FL.
What is Male Chest Reduction?
Male chest reduction is a surgical procedure to reduce breast size in men. It can be used to treat gynecomastia, an enlargement of the male breast gland due to hormonal imbalance. Dr. Brueck utilizes several reduction methods, including liposuction, removal of excess glandular tissue, or a combination of both.
Am I a good candidate for Male Chest Reduction?
If you feel comfortable revealing your chest contours, clothed or unclothed, after surgery and are seeking permanent results, you may be a good candidate. However, if scarring makes you feel self-conscious, or if you are prone to gaining weight, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure. Dr. Brueck will discuss the pros and cons of the procedure with you prior to surgery during your private consultation.
What can I expect from Male Chest Reduction?
If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
How long is the recovery from Male Chest Reduction?
Gynecomastia surgery usually has a relatively short recovery period; however, recovery time after surgery can depend on the severity of your condition and what was performed. The average patient, treated with a combination of liposuction and breast gland tissue excision, will likely be back to work after a week. Dr. Brueck will apply a compress dressing and prescribe an oral medication for pain management.
