Male breast reduction surgery is performed to treat gynecomastia or abnormal growth of breast tissue in males. There are many causes of gynecomastia including endocrine disorders, kidney or liver disease, or drug-related, or idiopathic (no clear cause). Many cases are idiopathic without a specific underlying disease. Being overweight can also result in enlargement of the breasts from fat; this is referred to as pseudogynecomastia.
What To Expect
The surgery is performed as an outpatient, meaning you will go home the same day and recover at home. Dr. Shore will see you the next day in her office, and after that at two weeks, six weeks, and three months after your surgery. Your activity afterwards will be restricted, and gradually increased as you heal from surgery. Most men can return to work within two weeks after surgery.
