What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition that causes boys and men to develop larger breasts than they should. This often occurs due to an imbalance of hormones in the body, causing breast tissue development atypically.

A common cause of gynecomastia is older age, but it can also be caused by puberty or obesity. Drinking too much alcohol and using illegal drugs may lead to the condition as well.

How Long is Recovery from Gynecomastia?

Our highly trained staff at Pure Plastic Surgery will ensure you have the best care before and after your male breast reduction surgery to help you recover faster. 

Your recovery time depends on the amount of tissue removed. It is essential to know that every patient’s recovery time is different; some return to work after a few days, while others may take a week or longer.

What Should I Expect During Gynecomastia Surgery?

Dr. Earle will make an incision on either side of your chest before applying local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on your preferences and health status.

Once you’re ready for surgery, Dr. Earle will perform liposuction to remove excess fat and glandular tissue while sculpting your chest and tightening the skin. He will remove all the extra tissue from your chest without damaging any nearby nerves or blood vessels during this process.

In severe cases of gynecomastia, Dr. Earle may use surgical tissue excision to achieve the best results possible for patients that have stretched or sagging skin around their breasts in addition to this condition.
