Many adolescent boys will develop a fullness in the chest that persists or even worsens in the ensuing years. Often, lumps or masses under the nipple areas that are quite tender can be felt. This condition is called “gynecomastia” and can occur spontaneously but is also associated with the use of steroids and certain medications as well as certain medical conditions. Older men can also develop this condition. Men are often embarrassed to take off their shirts and will avoid the beach, the pool, etc. as a result. Fortunately, most cases can be effectively treated with simple liposuction!

Gynecomastia Consultation

Before choosing from your options for male breast reduction, you will have a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Back, who has earned a reputation as a ‘Top Doc’ for cosmetic surgery in South Jersey and Philadelphia. After an examination, he will review with you everything you want and need to know, and together you will discuss your goals and his recommendations. All the details of the procedure will be reviewed, and you will also have ample time for questions. ‘Before & After’ photos of our previous patients’ results are available to help new patients visualize the options available to them.

Gynecomastia Procedure

Often, a specific type of liposuction called Vaser or ultrasonic liposuction will yield the best results. This is because the fatty tissues that cause gynecomastia are very fibrous and thick and won’t respond well to traditional liposuction. The heat generated by the ultrasonic liposuction helps to liquefy the thick fat and also helps to retract the often loose and expanded skin that might be associated with this condition. Sometimes the lumps of hardened breast tissue will have to be surgically removed. Dr. Back will discuss and advise you about this beforehand.

Gynecomastia Recovery

The chest may be very sore for 2-3 days and is kept compressed in a large ace bandage for 3-4 weeks. Restrictions in chest muscle use are very important to avoid complications and obtain proper skin retraction during this time.
