What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the appearance of breast tissue in a male patient. This is an extremely common problem among men both young and old. It usually has two components: fat and glandular tissue. At KH Plastic Surgery, Dr. Hoschander frequently treats men with this condition.

The surgical procedure involves a combination of liposuction and surgical excision of the glands beneath the nipples. This is an outpatient procedure with little downtime. Patients who undergo the surgery will wear a compression garment for a short period of time following the surgery. This procedure restores the physical appearance and confidence of patients with this problem.

Benefits of Gynecomastia

Dr. Hoschander and our team have seen some remarkable transformations in our Male Breast Reduction patients in NYC & Long Island, with individuals experiencing results such as:

  • Better posture
  • Emotional well-being
  • Enhanced physical appearance
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Increased clothing options
  • Long-lasting results
  • Physical activities are more enjoyable
  • Sculpted chest

Best Candidates for the Gynecomastia Procedure

Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts and may go away on its own. But when it doesn’t, surgery certainly helps to address this problem in men. You are recommended to undergo gynecomastia surgery if you are a young male or adult man who has excess tissue in your breast region.

What’s the First Step?

If you are considering treating your Gynecomastia for Male Breast Surgery in the New York City area, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ari Hoschander. During this initial meeting, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history with Dr. Hoschander.

Once your case has been evaluated, Dr. Hoschander will recommend the appropriate course of action tailored to your surgical needs. If you decide to proceed with Gynecomastia Surgery, our dedicated team will guide you through the preparation process, ensuring that you are well informed and confident in your decision.

Expectations on the Day of Gynecomastia Surgery

The surgical intervention needed to get rid of gynecomastia involves a combination of liposuction and removal of the glandular tissue. However, this is an outpatient procedure and does not require you to stay a night at the hospital.

It starts with the administration of general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Then incisions will be made where it will be least inconspicuous such as the nipple or crease of the breast. After that, Dr. Hoschander will remove the glandular tissue and excess fat and then close the incisions with sutures.

Gynecomastia Recovery

The recovery process is similar to liposuction where swelling, tenderness, and soreness are common. After a week, you may come back to work and physical activities can slowly resume after a few weeks. You may need to wear compression garments for a while. You may also experience loss of sensation which should return after a few months.
