What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the medical name for overdeveloped male breasts. This condition may result from hormonal imbalances, the production of too much glandular tissue, weight gain, and even certain medications. But no matter its cause, it is often an emasculating and embarrassing disorder to live with.

If you are suffering from gynecomastia in Manchester, please call board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson at 603-882-2103 to schedule a male breast reduction consultation today.

Male Breast Reduction

When excess fatty tissue is responsible for gynecomastia, treating the condition may be accomplished through liposuction alone. Dr. Chatson utilizes advanced liposuction techniques such as SmartLipo™ to ensure the most effective and pleasing results.

When glandular tissue is causing gynecomastia, Dr. Chatson will need to add minor surgical steps to fully recontour the chest. This can increase your male breast reduction recovery period, though even in these cases most men are able to resume normal activities within a few short weeks.

Male breast reduction is an effective way to restore a toned and masculine look to your chest. When appropriate, our Manchester plastic surgeon may recommend combining breast reduction with other male plastic surgery procedures for optimal form and balance. This can be discussed as needed during your male breast reduction consultation.
