Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Naples, FL

If you’re a man with feminine-looking breasts, you’re not alone. Gynecomastia, (a medical term derived from the Greek words for “woman-like breasts”) affects many men. Enlarged breasts can be permanent, uncomfortable, and socially and psychologically devastating, but they can be permanently removed through male breast reduction surgery in Naples. During your consultation, you and Dr. Prysi will discuss your goals and expectations, and he will assess your current anatomy to determine the cause of your breast enlargement, as male breasts may be formed from fatty tissue and/or glandular tissue.

Male breast reduction may be performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. The procedure can last from one to three hours depending on the extent of correction. Dr. Prysi performs male breast reduction for many patients in the Southwest Florida area.  Surgery may require either of the following.

LIPOSUCTION

If your gynecomastia is primarily caused by fatty tissue, Dr. Prysi may recommend liposuction. This procedure removes unwanted localized fat cell deposits from the body, leaving you with a more masculine appearance.

TRADITIONAL SURGICAL EXCISION

If your gynecomastia is the result of a glandular disorder, liposuction alone is not likely to be adequate. Traditional surgical excision may be a better option. The excision may be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction. Typically, the incision is placed on the edge of the areola (colored area of the nipple) or in the underarm area. Your surgeon will work through these incisions to cut away the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from the breast.
