Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) in Pasadena & LA

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

A body feature that is admired on a woman is an embarrassing feature that can develop in some men over time: breasts. Often not talked about, many men are insecure about enlarged, female-like breasts that are characteristic of a condition known as gynecomastia. Even with a healthy diet and exercise plan, excess glandular tissue and fat are often unresponsive to traditional weight-loss methods. Many men have tried exercise, diet, and medications that promise to get rid of their enlarged breasts to no avail. Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery, is an ideal procedure designed to remove overdeveloped or enlarged male breasts.

Achieved With Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is characterized by a buildup of excess glandular tissue in the chest area. When performing a male breast reduction, Dr. Taylor will remove the excess fat and glandular tissue that causes the unflattering appearance of enlarged male breasts.

What Does Gynecomastia Surgery Entail?

Before surgery, medication is administered to increase patient comfort. Gynecomastia surgery is performed with general anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or for smaller cases, local anesthesia alone. An incision is made near the breasts, and fat is removed using liposuction. For the liposuction procedure, Dr. Taylor inserts a thin, hollow tube (cannula) and uses a back and forth motion while the fat is suctioned out through a vacuum. If necessary, Dr. Taylor makes an incision around the nipples to remove excess glandular tissue. The incisions are closed using surgical tape or sutures. Typically, the procedure takes one to two hours.
