Male Breast Reduction Candidates
Those interested in a male breast reduction suffer from a condition known as gynecomastia. Salt Lake City men come to 22 Plastic Surgery when diet and exercise fail to shrink their enlarged breasts. Common motivators for a male breast reduction can include:
- Excess breast tissue
- The desire for a strong and smooth chest contour
- Excess skin
- The desire to improve nipple position
When consulting with your surgeon for your male breast reduction, we will take into account all of your desires and goals. Our surgeons understand that men want sculpted and smooth chests, which often conveys masculinity.
In Salt Lake City, a male breast reduction procedure is performed by creating very fine incisions in the target area. Then, your surgeon will reduce excess tissue often utilizing ultrasound assisted liposuction. Skin may also be resected if needed. During this phase, the areola can be reduced, as well, leading to a more masculine chest appearance. Once they have finished, they will close your incisions.
What to Expect Afterward
In general, a male breast reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure, and recovery is typically straightforward. While experiences vary, most of our patients are able to resume light activities about 1 to 2 weeks after treatment and regular activities in about 4 weeks.
