Gynecomastia (male)

Gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue in men, is a common condition. It is estimated that about 50% of males will experience this condition at some point in their lives. Growing male adolescents and teens may experience gynecomastia, but men of all ages, especially above 40, can have this condition. One of the most effective cosmetic treatments for gynecomastia is surgery. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, offers gynecomastia surgery at our clinics in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Gynecomastia can involve increased fatty tissue, enlarged breast glands or both. Whatever the case, the appearance of larger breasts can impact a man’s appearance and self-confidence. While some men only increase breast size when they gain weight, other men with gynecomastia experience increased breast tissue regardless of their weight. Hiding the emergence of male breasts is almost impossible, which is why gynecomastia surgery is the best cosmetic solution.

Male Breast Reduction

There are several reasons why men can develop more pronounced breast tissue. The pseudogynecomastia is excess fat which deposits in the chest that can increase the size of the male breasts. True gynecomastia, or male breast development, is a result of underlying hormonal imbalance, which can be the result of a disease, certain medications or the normal the aging process. While the underlying reason for hormonal imbalance needs to be addressed in itself, at Vantage Plastic Surgery, the surgery for male breast reduction will deal with the aesthetics of this condition. Dr. Shteynberg has ample experience in male breast reduction and will guide you through the process with ease and confidence.

Gynecomastia surgery can include liposuction to remove fatty tissue and/or breast gland removal. Dr. Shteynberg will discuss the procedure and what to expect at your consultation. The incision for the procedure can be discreetly hidden – once it heals, the incision is almost invisible.

Gynecomastia surgery can improve the chest appearance and bolster a man’s self-confidence. If you have gynecomastia and want to explore male breast reduction surgery, contact us at Vantage Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a consultation with Dr. Shteynberg at one of our medical centers in NYC.
