Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast ReductionGynecomastia, or male breast reduction, is one of the more common male cosmetic surgery procedures that we perform. It can vary from mild to severe cases. Mild cases may be treated by liposuction alone. Moderate cases involve an incision around the areola to also remove glandular tissue that remains after the liposuction. The scars usually fade well. Recovery is usually in a week, although weight lifting and vigorous exercise is restricted for 3 weeks.

Risks include nipple loss of sensation, irregularities, asymmetry, dimples, and scarring. It is done as an outpatient. Many men will combine this procedure with liposuction of the abdomen and/or flanks (“love handles”). The age range is from 18 to 65.

Gynecomastia Patient Experiences

  • “I went into the procedure with realistic expectations and was impressed with the results. They absolutely superseded my expectations. From the initial consult, the staff was friendly and honest about every step in the procedure. I highly recommend IPS.”

  • “I am so glad I got it done. I wouldn’t regret anything about what I did and now how I look. I’d do it again if I had to.”

IPS is trying to avoid price increases. Thus we made this one optional. Our credit card processor charges 3.99%. Rather than raise prices, the processor fee is added to card transactions which you can avoid by a debit card or cash.
