If you are a male diagnosed with gynecomastia and suffer from enlarged breasts, we can offer you a surgical procedure to remove the excessive tissue contributing to the appearance of feminine breasts on your chest wall. Gynecomastia is a condition where breast tissue develops on the chest of a male in adolescence and may persist throughout adulthood without medical intervention. Older men can also develop "woman-like breasts" from hormone imbalances, medication side effects, or steroid use. Weight gained in the chest area may not be actual breast tissue and we can discern what kind of tissue it is during an examination at our office in Delray Beach, FL at Inspire Aesthetics. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can correct the problem of enlarged breasts and offer men greater peace of mind with the help of ultrasonic liposuction, as well as the surgical removal of the breasts through inconspicuous and limited incisions for a muscular, toned chest that can restore confidence and self-esteem.
"What an amazing team!! Dr. Goodwin, Kathy and Angela made a very stressful life event involving my double mastectomy and reconstruction turn from a nightmare into a dream.

"They're AMAZING so honest and helpful , I love how clean they're as well that is a very big thing , I've been going to them for a year now and I always look forward to going :)"- G.R. / Yelp / Mar 22, 2020
"Get It Done Right From the Start - Dr. Matthew Goodwin is a fantastic plastic surgeon. Prior to seeing Dr. Goodwin, I had been through a unilateral mastectomy followed by six unsuccessful breast reconstruction surgeries. I heard about a woman who experienced the same and that Dr. Goodwin fixed everything for her in just one surgery. That was the inspiration I needed to go see him. Dr. Goodwin was very pleasant, answered my many questions perfectly, and gave me confidence in his ability to get this right. I recently had the surgery, and am absolutely thrilled with the results. Please don't wait until you've had several failed surgeries. Go to him right from the start."- D. / RealSelf / Mar 01, 2020
"Very happy with the result! I did a chin augmentation and could not be happier with the outcome. It is a slight, yet significant change in my appearance. Dr. Schnitt is knowledgeable, skilled and very honest. He will not try to do unnecessary procedures to make money, but rather recommend what is really needed in your case. He takes all the time in the world to answer questions. I have been in a total about 6 times including the surgery for pre-ops and post-ops, and it has always been a breeze to get in and out. His staff is also friendly and extremely helpful - available to answer questions quickly on email, phone or SMS. I rarely leave reviews, but felt the need to tell my experience at Inspire Cosmetic. As a guy it was a bit hard mentally to get this done, but the staff made me feel very comfortable about my decision. Thank you so much guys!"- D.G. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2020
"Dr. Drew Schnitt could not have been better! He was upfront and thorough about my procedure before and after. The results are exactly what I was hoping for. I couldn't be happier. I can't thank Vanessa enough for constantly being on call to answer my questions and concerns throughout my healing process. There was never a time that she would not answer within an hour, even when she was not working. She made the experience a million times easier for me. I can't say better things about Inspire, and I will be a long time client. I will be recommending Dr. Drew & the Inspire team to all my friends."- C.F. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2020
The best candidates for male breast reduction surgery have been diagnosed with gynecomastia and have tried other treatments such as diet, exercise, or medication. The most favorable candidates are those who are in good health who still need assistance getting rid of excess fat and tissue in the breasts. Patients with other medical conditions should discuss their medical history thoroughly with a surgeon prior to surgery.
What to Expect
A male breast reduction surgery is an effective method of treatment for gynecomastia. Usually performed as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia, the surgeon will use a combination of liposuction and tissue excision to decrease the size of the breasts and remove any unnecessary fat and tissue. Using liposuction, fat is removed through small incisions made on each side of the chest, along the edge of the areola, or within the armpit, depending on the best and safest technique to meet your cosmetic needs.
Gynecomastia can affect one or both of the breasts in different ways. Although not typically a serious medical condition, it can cause some physical ailments such as back pain and emotional stress from embarrassment. Male breast reduction surgery not only removes excess breast tissue; it also sculpts the chest for a more masculine look. In more severe cases of gynecomastia, patients may require a tissue excision. During a tissue excision, the surgeon is able to remove more tissue and skin than with liposuction alone.
Following male breast reduction surgery, no matter the technique used, you will experience bruising and swelling on and around the chest area for the first couple of weeks. Although you may feel sore after surgery, this will subside after a few days. Some men may experience a loss of sensation in the chest area and this it usually temporary. Each patient will experience a different healing process and should follow the surgeon’s care instructions for optimal results.
