Issues Causes by Large Male Breasts

Unfortunately, shame and humiliation are what men feel when they have enlarged breasts that give them a feminine look. If you have enlarged male breasts, you probably suffer from a condition called gynecomastia – the enlargement of glandular breast tissue in men. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, gynecomastia accounts for more than 65 percent of all male breast disorders. Dr. Sundine is a proud provider of male breast reduction surgery, which will give you a flat and more masculine chest with minimal scarring. Gynecomastia usually develops in adolescence and can be caused by a number of factors, including hormonal imbalance. Often the cause is unknown. However, the effects of gynecomastia can be ameliorated through plastic surgery.

Who Is a Candidate for Male Breast Reduction?

If you have enlarged male breasts, you are probably a good candidate for male breast reduction. You must be in good general health and not extremely overweight. If you have recently experienced weight fluctuations, you should wait until you are at your ideal weight to consult with Dr. Sundine, as such fluctuations can affect the size of the breasts and lead to excess tissue. Also, realistic expectations are very important to the success of your procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Sundine will examine your breasts and determine your candidacy, as well as the best surgical approach. Male breast reduction can be performed via liposuction only or using a combination of liposuction and tissue excision, depending on the degree of enlargement.

The Male Breast Reduction Procedure in Newport Beach

Male breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about one to two hours. During surgery, Dr. Sundine will make small incisions on either edge of the nipple and use liposuction to remove excess fat. If this does not provide satisfactory results, he will manually remove excess glandular tissue and skin. The breasts are then sculpted accordingly and the incisions are sutured. In some cases, additional incisions under the breasts may be necessary. However, over time, the scars heal and become essentially invisible as they fade.

Male Breast Reduction Recovery

Male breast reduction surgery recovery lasts about three to four weeks. The first week, you will be asked to stay at home and get plenty of rest. Your chest may feel sore, bruised, and swollen. Pain medicine and antibiotics will help speed up the healing process so that you can return to work and other daily activities within 10 days.

Do not be alarmed if you experience some sensation loss. This will return over time. You can expect to see the final results within one to two months, during which time Dr. Sundine will see you on a regular basis.

The cost of your male breast reduction in Newport Beach will depend on several factors, like the techniques to perform the procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Sundine can answer any questions you may have about pricing and payment options. Financing options are also available.

Patient Reviews & Testimonials

  • "Extremely Qualified"

    I was referred to Dr Sundine by the Pelican Hill Resort while I was a guest there and I suffered serious facial injuries from a mountain biking incident. Dr Sundine and his staff were concerned and caring and extremely qualified. the work performed by Dr Sundine on my face is simpl astounding. I was so impressed with the quality of care and results I received that I have had additional voluntary facila work performed by Dr Sundine. My wife and some friends have also become patients of Dr Sundine's with the same results. It is a difficult decision to entrust someone to repair and maintain one's appearance. I trust Dr Sundine.

  • "Thanks, Dr. Sundine!"

    After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. He is gentle and kind and genuinely listens to you. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. Even the day of the procedure, he spent ample time talking to me, taking measurements, and making marks on my body so as to get the perfect results. I have been singing his praises to all of my friends and will recommend him to anyone searching for a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Sundine!
