Male Breast Reduction

Over half of the male population have large breasts (also known as gynecomastia) – and we can help you. Rather than letting this condition have a negative effect on your self-esteem and health, come see Mount Sinai plastic surgeons and discuss your options. Our warm, caring staff provides a compassionate and discrete cosmetic surgery experience. You can trust that our skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeons will be here for you pre- and post-surgery.

Male breast reduction relieves pronounced nipples and enlarged breasts that typically start developing during male puberty and can continue into adulthood.

Common health factors linked to gynecomastia include:

  • Obesity
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Impaired liver function
  • Taking certain prescription medications, marijuana, or anabolic steroids

We will diagnose the underlying cause of the gynecomastia and treat it. However, if you continue to have enlarged breasts, plastic surgery may be your only solution.

Looking Your Best

Men of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from male breast reduction.

Breast reduction surgery will be especially beneficial if you:

  • Cannot resolve the condition through other means, such as weight loss
  • Maintain a healthy, stable weight
  • Avoid drug use and smoking

We use a personalized team approach to take care of you. Our plastic surgeons offer a wide range of services including liposuction to reduce stubborn fat deposits on many areas of the body, which may coincide with a male breast reduction procedure. Feel free to discuss these possibilities with your surgeon at your confidential consultation.
