A Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia procedure often results in a thinner appearance. Dr. Shienbaum can explain reasonable expectations for your results during a consultation.
Gynecomastia should not return after a surgery, as excess breast tissue, fat, or loose skin is permanently removed. You should take care to maintain a healthy weight to keep up your results long-term.
Gynecomastia can be prevented by maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding drugs that may result in excess breast tissue. However, some patients cannot avoid gynecomastia, as the condition can be genetic or a side effect of unpreventable medical conditions such as hormonal imbalance.
