Male Breast Reduction

Step into a new phase of self-assurance with Dr. Sony Truong's male breast reduction procedure. This surgery, also known as gynecomastia treatment, involves removing excess fat and glandular tissue from the chest area to create a flatter, firmer, and more traditionally masculine contour.

Benefits of Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure that addresses gynecomastia, a condition of enlarged or overdeveloped breasts in men. Here are some key benefits and their explanations:

  • More Masculine Figure: Male breast reduction can result in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured, contributing to a more traditionally masculine figure.
  • Improvement in Posture: The weight of large breasts can cause poor posture, leading to back and neck pain. By reducing this weight, the surgery can help improve posture.
  • Eases Physical Activity: Large breasts can make certain physical activities uncomfortable or even painful. After undergoing a breast reduction, many men find it easier to engage in sports, exercise, and other physical activities.

What Can Male Breast Reduction Address?

Male breast reduction surgery, primarily aimed at treating gynecomastia, can effectively address several issues. Here are some key points to consider:

  • Gynecomastia: This is the primary issue that male breast reduction surgery addresses. Gynecomastia is a condition where men develop enlarged breasts due to hormonal imbalance, obesity, or certain medications.
  • Psychological Distress: Living with gynecomastia can lead to social anxiety or depression. Surgery can help improve mental well-being by addressing the root cause of the distress.
  • Posture Problems: The weight of large breasts can affect a person's posture, leading to back or neck pain. Breast reduction can help improve posture by balancing the weight on the front of the body.
  • Skin Irritation: In some cases, large breasts can cause skin irritation or rashes under the breast crease. Reduction surgery can help alleviate these problems.

Ideal Candidates for Male Breast Reduction

  • Men who feel self-conscious about their breast size.
  • Individuals with fully developed breasts.
  • Non-smokers.
  • Those with a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
  • Those willing to maintain a stable weight post-surgery.
  • Individuals without serious illnesses.
  • Those experiencing physical discomfort due to large breasts.
  • Men who are not responding to alternative treatments like medications or exercise.

  • Consultation

    During your consultation, Dr. Truong will discuss your goals, assess your health, and explain the procedure in detail. He will guide you through the entire process, ensuring that your journey is comfortable, safe, and satisfying.

    Treatment Options

    Alternatives to male breast reduction include liposuction for breast fat removal and non-surgical treatments for skin tightening. Dr. Truong will explain these options and help you choose the best treatment plan based on your needs.

    What happens during Male Breast Reduction?

    The male breast reduction procedure begins with anesthesia, followed by incisions in the chest area. Excess fat and glandular tissue are removed to reduce the size of your breasts. You may feel mild discomfort during recovery, but this will subside over time. Expect a boost in confidence as you embrace your new look.


    Recovery from male breast reduction varies but generally involves rest, avoiding strenuous activities, and wearing a compression garment. Swelling and discomfort will gradually lessen over weeks, revealing your more masculine chest contour.

    Post-Operative Care

    After surgery, you'll need to rest, avoid heavy lifting, wear a compression garment, and attend follow-up appointments. Each step is crucial to ensure a smooth healing process and optimal results.

    Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

    Male breast reduction surgery, also known as gynecomastia surgery, can address several mild to moderate issues related to enlarged breasts in men. Here's how it can help:

    • Physical Discomfort: Men with gynecomastia often experience physical discomfort, including tenderness or pain in their breasts. The surgery can alleviate these symptoms by reducing the size of the breasts.
    • Clothing Fit: Men with enlarged breasts might struggle to find clothes that fit well and look good. After surgery, there's usually a broader range of clothing options available, leading to increased comfort and confidence.
    • Skin Problems: In some cases, large breasts can cause skin irritation or infections under the breast crease due to sweat and friction. Reduction surgery can help alleviate these skin issues.
    • Psychological Relief: Living with gynecomastia can sometimes lead to psychological stress, anxiety, or depression. By addressing the root of the issue, surgery can provide emotional relief and improve mental well-being.
    • Increased Mobility: Overly large breasts can limit mobility, particularly in activities that involve the upper body. Post-surgery, individuals often experience increased range of motion.
    • Reduced Chafing: Large breasts can cause chafing against the skin, particularly during physical activity. Reduction surgery can help to alleviate this discomfort.
    • Balanced Body Proportions: Male breast reduction can help achieve a more balanced body proportion, enhancing overall physical appearance.
