What is Gynecomastia Surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size in men, flattening and enhancing the chest contours.
In severe cases the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In these cases the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.

Will I have scars after my gynecomastia procedure?
Any surgical treatment to correct gynecomastia will require incisions. While most incision lines are concealed within natural contours, some may be visible and are a necessary result of male breast reduction surgery.
All surgery scars are permanent, even though some scars may be concealed in the natural contours of the breast. Your improved upper body will likely enhance your self-image and confidence, whether in a shirt and tie, a t-shirt or baring your chest at the beach.
How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?
The average cost of surgery is $3,641, according to 2017 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Gynecomastia surgery costs can vary widely. The average cost referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
What Is the Recovery ?
The recovery process is similar to that for liposuction; however, it is common for patients to experience soreness and some swelling. Typically, patients feel ready to return to work within 1 week of surgery, and a gradual return to exercise is usually permitted after the first couple of weeks.
