Gynecomastia affects millions of male adults and adolescents every year. While the cause is not quite known, this condition can create self-consciousness and the appearance of overly large breast tissue. The good news is that gynecomastia is easily treatable by our team of skilled plastic surgeons at The Face & Body Center in Flowood, MS. A male breast reduction procedure can effectively remove any excess fat, tissues, and skin to create a more contoured, masculine-looking appearance in the chest. If you're suffering from gynecomastia and are feeling its effects on your self-esteem, call our practice today for a consultation.
Since excess breast tissue can be caused by medical conditions other than gynecomastia, a doctor should confirm the cause before treatment. Ideal candidates will have:
- A healthy body weight
- Fat and breast tissue that is resistant to diet and exercise
- Good skin elasticity
- Overall good health
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in.

What to Expect
Male breast reduction surgery usually involves a combination of surgical tissue removal and liposuction. Your plastic surgeon will make an incision (usually around the areola) and remove dense breast tissue with precise excision. Then he can remove any excess fat with liposuction to create a smooth contour. After the surgery, your chest will be bandaged and wrapped in a compression garment that should be worn at all times. You should rest and move your upper body as little as possible for at least three days. Most patients can return to work in 7 – 10 days and resume low impact exercise in 2 – 3 weeks. Your surgeon will go over specific recovery instructions and any prescribed medication.
Results from male breast reduction are usually seen at least three months after the surgery when the swelling has subsided. It may take 6 – 12 months for the skin to tighten and form to the new chest shape. The results of male breast reduction surgery will be permanent as long as you maintain a healthy, stable weight, but natural signs of aging (like loose skin) will continue.
