Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the formation of breasts in males and may affect 65% of the male population.1 Excess breast tissue may be composed of fat, glandular tissue, or a combination of both, and can occur in one or both breasts. Those affected may also have excess sagging skin. Hormonal changes, increased age, certain drugs, or medical conditions can cause gynecomastia. While in some cases the condition will resolve on its own, many men visit Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Mays for male breast reduction surgery in Lexington and Louisville, KY, to achieve a more masculine chest appearance.

When performed by Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Mays, male breast reduction can successfully treat gynecomastia and give you a long-lasting cosmetic improvement. Request a consultation today or call (502) 899-9979 to schedule your visit and learn more about this procedure.

About Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Male breast reduction surgery lasts from 1 to 2 hours and is usually performed as an outpatient procedure while the patient is under twilight anesthesia. The plastic surgeon removes fat, glandular tissue, and/or excess skin from the breast to produce a flatter, more masculine appearance. Treatment may include liposuction, surgical removal of excess tissue or skin, or a combination of both.

What to Expect During Recovery

While healing rates vary from person to person, you can expect recovery to follow this general timeline:

First 1 or 2 Days

You will need a friend or family member to drive you home after surgery and stay with you for the first 24 hours following surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to control discomfort if needed.

2 to 4 Weeks

For at least 2 to 4 weeks, you will be required to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and limit any strenuous activity.

Recheck Appointment

You will have a follow-up appointment within about a week of surgery.
