Timeless Plastic Surgery performs male breast reduction surgery for our patients in Houston, Sugar land, and the Fort Bend county areas. We are one of the most qualified and experienced plastic surgeries in the Houston area.

Male breast enlargement, or Gynecomastia, the medical term literally means "woman's breast." Although it is more common in elderly males, it afflicts men of all ages, and it is estimated that up to 60 percent of men may be affected.

Many men find this condition embarrassing and will try to hide their condition by wearing heavy clothing and avoid activities that require public exposure. Younger males may even be teased about their condition with slurs such as "man boobs," etc.

Today's technology has reduced much of the scarring that has normally been associated with male breast reduction (gynecomastia) procedures, which in the past have been highly visible. But now, a number of smaller incisions can be made around the nipple area – which not only improves the cosmetic outcome, but helps in recovery time as well.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure:

During the male breast reduction procedure, fat and glandular tissue is removed from the affected area. In extreme cases, excess skin may also be removed.

Are You a Male Breast Reduction Candidate?

If you have tried all other possible solutions, including diet and exercise, male breast reduction surgery hay be the only solution.

Candidates for male breast reduction surgery can be of any age but, they should be healthy and emotionally stable.

What Are The Risks of Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

Male breast reduction surgery has many of the same risks of any surgical procedure, including infection, blood loss, etc. In addition, you should be careful to choose the right surgeon to carry out the procedure: the surgeon should be qualified and experienced as he must carefully sculpt each breast area to ensure symmetry of the chest area. Our surgeons are highly qualified and experienced in male breast reduction surgery. We will explain the risks and describe what should be expected after the operation.

How Long Will Recovery From Male Breast Reduction Surgery Take?

Patients will experience swelling, bruising and some discomfort for a few days after the male breast reduction surgery. This is normally controlled with the medications Timeless Plastic Surgery will prescribe.

To reduce swelling, you will wear an elastic bandage., continuously at first and then during sleeping hours. The length of time you must wear the bandage depends on your speed of your recovery but, normally this will be for just a few weeks.

Each individual is different, and depending upon the extent of your male breast reduction procedure, it may take a few months for complete recovery and the full benefits of the operation to be noticeable.

Although you will be encouraged to take light exercise, heavy exercise and weight lifting should be avoided for several weeks. Patients can normally return to work after a day or two. Timeless Plastic Surgery will provide complete instructions to help you heal and quickly return to normal.

If you are like almost 60 percent of men who feel that your overall appearance can be enhanced by a male breast reduction procedure, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment for a consultation. While not all men are ideal candidates – due to obesity, excessive alcohol use, drug use including steroids, or heavy smoking – Timeless Plastic Surgery can certainly discuss if male breast reduction surgery is right for you.

Please note that drug–related male breast enlargement (gynecomastia) due to steroid or marijuana use can sometimes be recurring, even after surgery is performed. Please ask Timeless Plastic Surgery for advice during your consultation if this applies to you.

We perform male breast reduction (gynecomastia) procedures on an outpatient basis, but you should be sure to rearrange transportation home, as well as some additional help during the first few days of recovery.
