Gynecomastia, the enlargement of male breast tissue, can lead to disproportionate and embarrassing feminization of the masculine chest. Gynecomastia Reduction, also known as Male Breast Reduction, is an outpatient surgical procedure that corrects the enlargement. Today’s Gynecomastia Video Presentation provides information about the procedure and illustrates the results with actual patients’ before and after pictures.

Gynecomastia Video Presentation

Male Breast Reduction is one of the most common types of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery performed for men. In this video segment from KRON 4’s Body Beautiful, I discuss how Gynecomastia Reduction is performed and narrate Gynecomastia Before and After Pictures with host Janelle Marie.

One-Sided Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia frequently affects both sides of the chest, but in this case, only the right breast was involved. Gynecomastia reduction was performed only on his right chest to restore symmetry.

Sometimes gynecomastia is one-sided. Gynecomastia reduction provided my patient symmetry and the ability to confidently wear tight shirts.

Male Breast Reduction After Massive Weight Loss

Excess skin is very common after massive weight loss. In this case, the excess skin was removed from the lower chest leaving scars in the inframammary folds (IMFs). The scars are still pink because the photo is just a few weeks after surgery. As they mature, the scars blend into the IMFs and become hard to see. The nipples were in the resected skin, so they were reduced and replaced as skin grafts onto the chest.

Extreme weight loss calls for extreme makeovers. In this case the excess skin was removed and the nipples repositioned as skin grafts. The scars are new and fade as they mature.
