Overview

One of three most common conditions in men that affect the appearance of the chest is gynecomastia. This condition creates excess tissue within the chest area giving the appearance of female breasts. It often starts in puberty, and can also be caused by hormonal imbalances, medications, liver or thyroid problems. Men with gynecomastia often feel insecure when exposing their chests. Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Earl Stephenson, helps men overcome this problem with male breast reduction surgery. This procedure reshapes the chest and creates a more masculine chest appearance.

Best Candidates

Men who are self-conscious because of larger than normal breasts are candidates for this surgery. Dr. Stephenson will provide a thorough assessment to establish if gynecomastia is the condition causing the enlargement. Men should be at or near a healthy weight and have relatively good skin tone. If the excessive breast tissue has stretched the skin, a skin tightening technique will be incorporated during the surgery.

Expected Cost

Male breast reduction surgery will vary in cost depending on the complexity of the surgical case. This surgery can average between $4,000 to $8,000. Some things to consider that may affect cost include liposuction, skin tightening, nipple repositioning, skin grafting, etc.
