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. Very supportive with great bedside manner. This truly talented surgeon has your best interests in mind always."- H.V. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2019
"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
"I have been seeing Dr. Matthew Goodwin for breast reconstruction post-mastectomies. His office staff have always treated me respectfully and responded well to my questions and concerns. The initial surgery for expanders and subsequent reconstruction one year ago both went well. I am very pleased with the results and have received many compliments about my "foobs," including those from other doctors I routinely see. It is scary to receive a diagnosis of breast cancer but Dr. Goodwin's office helped allay many of my fears. I have already recommended other women to his practice and will continue to do so."- S.S. / Yelp / Jan 11, 2020
"I've only ever been here for botox but today I had my earlobes worked on by Dr.Schnitt! I used to gauge my ears in my teenage years and it's been a major regret in my adult years lol! I'm SO happy with how they look already. What I also love is that they let you choose your Pandora station, so I had the Bob Marley station on love this place! Staff is always so nice."- K.B. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2020
"Amazing Experience in an Emergency and After - Dr. Jack consulted with my family about scarring from tracheotomy when they had to decide to move me from intubation to a trach. Shd assured them she could fix it. She did the revision and no one notices it now even though it’s in the center of my neck."- C. / RealSelf / Dec 16, 2019
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.
