Gynecomastia Correction Surgery Is Designed To:

Excess breast tissue and fat in men can obstruct the masculine chest contours desired by many men. This may cause them to be self-conscious in and out of clothing, often leading these men to hide their chests even at the beach or pool.

Male breast reduction helps you:

  • Achieve a more sculpted and manly chest
  • Regain self-confidence
  • Allow you to wear the shirts you want or not wear one at all
  • Provides more comfort during exercise and while participating in sports

Gynecomastia may cause physical discomfort due to additional weight in the chest area. This can make running and jumping more difficult.

Male breast reduction can restore your confidence by eliminating excess breast tissue while allowing you to participate in physical activities comfortably.

How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost in Miami, FL?

The cost of male breast reduction depends on the extent of correction needed, anesthesia fees, techniques used, and the skill of your surgeon. At Careaga Plastic Surgery, our patient care coordinators will provide an accurate, individualized cost estimate during your gynecomastia surgery consultation.

What Does Male Breast Reduction Surgery Involve?

Gynecomastia develops for several reasons, including hormonal changes, weight gain, heredity, and steroids or drug use. Multiple techniques are offered at Careaga Plastic Surgery, and the approach used for your surgery depends on the cause of your gynecomastia.

Male breast reduction procedures can consist of the following:

  • Excision through traditional surgical methods – Ideal for men with excess breast tissue due to steroid use and hormonal changes. This approach surgically removes dense fibrous tissue in the chest area. Incisions are hidden for the minimal appearance of scars
  • Ultrasonic liposuction – Removes excess fat in the chest area with only small incisions and minimal scarring, while ultrasound breaks up glandular tissue. This option involves a faster recovery time and allows contouring of the entire chest
  • A combination of both – Traditional surgical methods and liposuction

Gynecomastia Surgery Combinations

Gynecomastia surgery can be combined with other surgical procedures to accomplish more of your cosmetic goals and may include liposuction of the abdomen or tummy tuck surgery for optimal body contouring or a personalized Daddy Makeover.

After Your Gynecomastia Surgery

What Can I Expect During My Gynecomastia Surgery Recovery?

Immediately after your gynecomastia surgery, dressings will be placed over your incisions, and an elastic bandage or compression garment may be worn to help minimize swelling and support your new chest contours as you heal.

A drain may also be placed to eliminate excess blood or fluid that collects under the skin.

Your surgeon will provide post-operative instructions that include incision and drain care, how to use prescribed or over-the-counter medications, and how to reduce your risk of infection or other complications. They will also schedule your follow-up appointment.

A friend or family member will need to drive you home, and you should plan for a week of recovery time. Do not shower for the first 24 hours, and refrain from submerging your incisions in water. Rest, eat healthy meals, and avoid strenuous activities until your doctor clears you. Following all the doctor’s instructions and attending your follow-up visits is essential.

What Results Can I Expect After Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery results are usually permanent. However, if your gynecomastia was caused by weight gain or medications (including steroids), you must maintain a stable weight and discontinue taking these drugs.

Please consult with your doctor before stopping any prescription medications.
