What is Male Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia can affect men of any body type and age, causing enlarged breast tissue, at times resembling women’s breasts. Gynecomastia can occur as a result of weight gain, hormones, certain drugs, or genes. This condition can affect self-confidence and body image.
Enlarged male breasts can either be gynecomastia or pseudo gynecomastia. Two types of tissue are found in breasts: fatty tissue and glandular tissue. Pseudogynecomastia is an excess of fatty tissue, which can be treated both surgically and non-surgically. Gynecomastia must be treated surgically.
Male gynecomastia surgery removes excess fat, skin, and tissue, helping to contour the male chest, leaving men with tighter upper bodies and a more proportional physique. The highly-experienced surgeons at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery use their surgical artistry to give you a natural, masculine chest. You can trust us to provide personalized, compassionate care.

Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Generally, any male who is bothered by their enlarged or sagging breast tissue is a candidate for gynecomastia surgery. The ideal candidate is physically healthy, a non-smoker, and is of stable weight.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
After gynecomastia surgery, you can expect soreness, bruising, and swelling. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to help ease the discomfort. You will wear a compression garment over your chest to decrease swelling and fluid retention and promote healing. Your surgeon will follow your progress, and you may resume regular, everyday activity once your chest is healed, typically within 4-6 weeks.
