Male Breast Reduction

Conveniently located to serve Newport Beach & all areas of Orange County

Male breast reduction sometimes referred to as gynecomastia surgery, can provide a way for men with enlarged breasts to restore the flat and masculine appearance of their chest. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael J. Sundine offers male breast reduction in Newport Beach for men who suffer from gynecomastia.

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.

Recovering from Male Breast Reduction

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 Male Breast Reduction in Newport Beach?

    • My experience with Dr. Sundine was AWESOME! He did such an amazing job on my nose. My nose had basically collapsed and Dr. Sundine made it look normal again. He helped me restore my self confidence. I am so happy with the results. Dr. Sundine explained everything in detail prior to surgery along with my follow up visits. I highly recommend him. He is very professional, knowledgeable and kind.

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    Dr. Sundine is an outstanding doctor. His technique, his expertise and the care with which he approached my surgery were exceptional. I wasn’t surprised. I chose him because I knew that his training and skills are terrific. Dr. Sundine and his staff still exceeded my expectations, however, and the complete experience – consultation, surgery and follow-up– have been wonderful. As I did, I encourage everyone to do your due diligence and research alternatives, but at the end of the day there is no better choice than Dr. Sundine. Amazing results…

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
