Gynecomastia Surgery

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Gynecomastia surgery is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men.

Your gynecomastia surgery consultation

During your gynecomastia surgery consultation be prepared to discuss:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and recreational drug use (including steroids)
  • Previous surgeries

Your gynecomastia surgeon may also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Perform diagnostic testing to determine the underlying cause of gynecomastia; this may include testing of your endocrine function
  • Examine your breasts and may take detailed measurements of their size and shape, skin quality and placement of your nipples and areolas
  • Take photographs for your medical records
  • Discuss your options
  • Recommend a course of treatment
  • Discuss likely outcomes of gynecomastia correction and any risks or potential complications
  • Discuss the use of anesthesia during your procedure

The consultation is the time to ask your plastic surgeon questions. To help, we have prepared a checklist of questions to ask your gynecomastia surgeon that you can take with you to your consultation.

It's very important to understand all aspects of your surgical procedure. It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
