Gynecomastia Surgery Q & A

What is gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is the clinical term for male breast reduction surgery. The procedure helps create a flatter, more streamlined appearance of the chest by removing unwanted fat and breast gland tissue. Men can have the surgery on one or both breasts depending on their needs.

For many people, gynecomastia surgery does not require significant downtime, and Dr. Thakur can perform it using minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Thakur will discuss your options and how male breast reduction can help you meet your goals.

What are the benefits of gynecomastia surgery?

If you suffer from lowered confidence, avoid physical activity, or experience intimacy issues due to your breast size, gynecomastia surgery can help.

Men experience enlarged breasts for several reasons, including:

  • Genetic factors
  • Hormonal shifts
  • Disease
  • Side effects of certain medications

Gynecomastia is a normal condition that shouldn't induce shame. That's why Dr. Thakur also recommends counseling and support groups for those experiencing heightened stress due to their gynecomastia.

Many men find that when they address their gynecomastia through surgery, their self-esteem and overall health improve. Counseling and support groups can also enhance those results.

What can I expect when getting gynecomastia surgery?

Dr. Thakur offers both traditional gynecomastia surgery and male breast reduction through SmartLipo fat removal.

When you undergo traditional surgery, Dr. Thakur removes breast gland tissue via a mastectomy. In many cases, Dr. Thakur can complete this procedure endoscopically, using only tiny incisions. That drastically reduces your recovery time.

For some men, SmartLipo for gynecomastia can significantly reduce breast size with even shorter recovery time and less pain than traditional reduction surgery. SmartLipo attacks excess fat through small tubes inserted through your skin. These tubes also suck the fat out.
