Correct the Symptoms of Gynecomastia for a Boost in Confidence
A small portion of men may experience an overdevelopment of breast tissue that leads to a disproportionally large chest area. This condition is called gynecomastia and can be an embarrassing situation for some people. This excess breast tissue can be caused by a number of factors and there are several cosmetic procedures that can be used to reduce this material and provide the patient with a normal looking chest that better matches their body.
Gynecomastia can be a result of an aggressive weight loss program and patients that lose a lot of weight quickly may end up with excess skin in several parts of their body that they want to have addressed. In fact, several of these reduction procedures can typically be combined into a single office visit to help the patient accelerate their transition and shorten their healing time. Heredity can also play a role in gynecomastia and many patients find that someone in their family also had the condition in years past.
The good news is that Dr. Sadati offers several different procedures to eliminate this excess breast tissue and can help any patient address their concerns.

Prior to your male breast reduction, Dr. Sadati will provide you with thorough pre-op instructions, answer any questions you may have, take a detailed medical history, and perform a physical exam to determine your candidacy.
Those who may be good candidates for male breast reduction include men who have unwanted breast development who are healthy, want to improve their physique, and have realistic expectations for their results.
Following your male breast reduction, any discomfort is controlled with oral medications and long-acting local anesthesia. A special postoperative garment is usually worn for several weeks according to Dr. Sadati’s instructions.
A postoperative care facility or closely monitored overnight home care is standard practice. The patient is seen the next day for a follow-up visit. There will normally be postoperative tumescent fluid drainage for several days. Sutures may be required with liposuction and are required following direct surgical procedures. Removal is usually within 1-2 weeks. Light activity may be resumed in two days. Sports activities may be resumed in 2 to 4 weeks (depending on your cosmetic surgeon’s instructions).
The first step of male breast reduction is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sadati. During this time, you will be able to discuss your aesthetic goals and go over your medical history. Dr. Sadati takes the time to create a customized treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
How long will male breast reduction results last?
Results from male breast reduction are long-lasting, assuming that you keep a stable weight. If your gynecomastia was caused by medication or anabolic steroids, further use could lead to recurrence.
What are the limitations and risks of male breast reduction?
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks involved with male breast reduction. Thankfully, significant complications are infrequent. However, some potential complications include infection and bleeding, changes in skin sensation, scarring, allergic reaction, or blood clots.
