Breast Reduction – Male
Male breast reduction is the surgical correction of enlarged, overdeveloped breasts in males. Men who have this condition (called gynecomastia) have excess localized fat in the breast region and/or excess glandular tissue development. Gynecomastia can be present in one or both breasts and is common in men across the age spectrum. Eliminating overdeveloped breast tissue through male breast reduction allows the patient to reclaim a masculine chest and feel more confident in his appearance.

What Do You Desire?
A More Masculine Appearance
Having excess breast tissue and fat in the chest area detracts from the look and feel of a firm, masculine chest. Even minor cases of gynecomastia can give the impression of “man boobs” on the affected male. This can have a significant effect on the psyche, self-image, confidence, and emotional state of the individual with gynecomastia. Male breast reduction can correct the condition to restore a masculine appearance and resolve these effects.
Better Physical Comfort and Hygiene
The presence of excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin in the chest area can lead to physical discomfort and hygiene problems. Skin folds can cause rashes and irritation. Clothing that is designed to lie flat against the chest may fit poorly and feel uncomfortably tight. Male breast reduction eliminates the excess tissue to create a more naturally flat chest, thereby eradicating the hygiene issues and physical discomforts associated with having male breasts.
Improved Self-Image and Self-Confidence
Men who have gynecomastia may struggle with having a distorted self-image and low self-confidence. These men may avoid social gatherings, limit their clothing options, and feel continually embarrassed about how others may perceive them. Male breast reduction surgery enhances the appearance of the chest by eliminating overdeveloped breast tissue, excess fat, and any surplus skin. This helps the individual reestablish a confident, masculine self-image.

I've been waiting 30 plus years to have this procedure done. I was all nerves at the beginning of the process but Dr. Cohn and his staff immediately put me at ease. The care and compassion that he and his staff exhibit has me wondering why I waited so long. Each step of the way has been a pleasure and there is always plenty of time given to me to ask questions or address any concerns I may have. I put a lot of time and research into choosing a doctor and I know I made the right choice with Dr. Cohn!
