Gynecomastia is the removal of excess breast and fatty tissue in men to improve the contour of the chest. Gynecomastia is the development of thick fibroglandular tissue behind the areola in men which can add unwanted volume and projection of the nipples and can sometimes produce a breast-like fold on the chest. Men with this condition may notice swelling in the chest and their breasts may also be tender to the touch. Male breast reduction involves chest contouring through liposuction or the removal of glandular breast tissue.

What to expect?

Depending on your surgical plan, you may use general anesthetic or a local anesthetic with sedation. Dr. Klok will determine if liposuction or the removal of glandular breast tissue is the best course of action. Dr. Klok may also remove excess skin and reshape the breast.

How long does it take to recover?

It is normal for patients who have undergone gynecomastia surgery to resume normal activities after one to two days. Exercise and physically demanding jobs can be resumed three to six weeks after surgery.
