Am I A Candidate For Male Breast Reduction Surgery (Gynecomastia)?



Gynecomastia affects 40 to 60 percent of men and typically begins in adolescence. The condition is characterized by excess skin, fat, and sometimes glandular tissue, in the breasts, giving them an enlarged appearance. Gynecomastia can lead to a severe lack of self-esteem, and in some cases deep depression and psychological problems. Although the exact cause of gynecomastia is unknown, possible causes of the condition include:

• Obesity
• Natural aging
• Some prescription medications and medications containing estrogen
• Anabolic steroid use
• Use of herbal testosterone additives
• Klinefelter Sydrome
• Gilbertis Syndrome
• Puberty
• Testicular hormone production irregularities
• Problems with liver function

Gynecomastia is not something a person just has to learn to live with. It can be treated with male breast reduction surgery that can provide a re-contoured, more toned-looking chest area and a significant boost to self-confidence. Patients who qualify for male breast reduction surgery are often those who are not considered obese. Those who are overweight are often advised to try traditional weight loss methods before having a breast reduction procedure. Male breast reduction surgery is also not for men who drink excessive amounts of alcohol or who smoke marijuana, as both have been linked to gynecomastia. Dr. Zuckerman will meet with you in a private cosmetic surgery consultation in his office to discuss all aspects of male breast reduction surgery. At this initial consultation, you are encouraged to ask questions and address your concerns, and he will work with you to determine your candidacy and see if male breast reduction can meet your ultimate goals.

Depending on the degree of enlargement, Dr. Zuckerman will approach the surgery in one of three ways. For mild cases, he will remove fat via liposuction, and the only incisions will be small poke holes in a few regions of the breast area. For moderate cases, Dr. Zuckerman will combine make an incision around the bottom half of the areola (the dark-pigmented area surrounding the nipple) and remove glandular tissue combined with removing fat via liposuction. For more severe cases, Dr. Zuckerman will employ what is known as a modified Roberts pattern. In this case, the patient is left with an incision along the inframammary fold below the breast. It is also possible to perform male breast reduction surgery by making small incisions hidden in the armpit. Excess skin, fat, and/or glandular tissue will be removed. The length of the procedure will depend on the extent of your condition; however, male breast reduction procedures are typically performed as an outpatient under general anesthesia and typically take one to two hours to complete.

As stated above, Dr. Zuckerman perform male breast reduction surgery / gynecomastia surgery at the private state-of-the-art operating room inside his office in midtown Manhattan. The facility is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) and is fully equipped and certified to offer the highest standard of care.
