What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition in men characterized by excess fat and/or glandular tissue that leads to enlarged breasts. It can affect one or both breasts. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about half of all men are affected by gynecomastia. In most cases, the cause of gynecomastia is unknown. While not a serious medical condition, gynecomastia may lead to mild physical discomfort. The most common negative effects of gynecomastia are psychological difficulties such as low-self esteem and embarrassment.

Male Breast Reduction for Treatment of Gynecomastia
The most effective treatment for gynecomastia is surgical male breast reduction. Dr. Chapin is well-versed in the latest male breast reduction techniques, which have proven to produce permanent and satisfying results in most patients. Male breast reduction involves removal of excess glandular tissue and fat. Fat is removed using the liposuction technique, while glandular tissue is excised via surgical extraction. Excess skin is also removed in some cases.
The incisions required for male breast reduction are generally made either around the nipple or in the underarm area. The surgery lasts one to two hours, and patients are fully recovered within a few short weeks following the procedure. As a result of surgery, the breasts are re-contoured to a more flat and masculine shape.
Male breast reduction is a serious surgical procedure that requires the skills and experience of a board certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Chapin is highly qualified to perform male breast reduction and works hand-in-hand with each patient to help them achieve the best possible results while ensuring their safety and comfort.
