Male Breast Reduction

For many men, the measure of health and fitness is a toned and well-developed chest. Unfortunately, some men cannot achieve this appearance even with a healthy diet and rigorous weight lifting and exercise. Up to 50% of males suffer from enlarged, feminine-looking breasts, or gynecomastia, at some point in their lives. This can cause embarrassment and discomfort, and may limit activities and clothing choices. To create a firmer, flatter, more masculine-looking chest, Dr. Mosher can perform male breast reduction in the Vancouver area.

He and his dedicated staff will help you to fully understand all of your options for gynecomastia treatment in the Vancouver area.

About Gynecomastia

Overly developed breasts in men of otherwise normal weight (gynecomastia) is a medical condition that can affect males of all different ages. Gynecomastia can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness, and often men who have this condition have been teased since childhood for having a feminine-looking chest. Of our patients in the Vancouver area, male breast reduction patients are among the most satisfied, as this procedure can be life-changing.

Primary gynecomastia occurs during puberty and the cause is unknown in most cases. This condition is often temporary, improving without intervention as adolescence progresses. Secondary gynecomastia occurs in adult males and is more common than primary gynecomastia. Vancouver area men should be evaluated to be sure that there is no underlying medical cause for this condition before seeking male breast reduction.

Gynecomastia Treatment in Vancouver

Most cases of gynecomastia are a combination of fatty tissue and excess breast glandular tissue. Often, gynecomastia can be corrected using only liposuction, which improves the contour and decreases the bulk of the breasts. Smartlipo™ is particularly effective for reducing the excess volume, and additionally tightening the overlying skin for a firmer appearance. In either case, a very small tube called a cannula is inserted through small incisions, and the fat is suctioned away.

In cases where a large degree of glandular tissue is present, or there is an excess of loose skin, surgical excision may be necessary. For this procedure, Dr. Mosher typically makes a discreet incision along the border of the areola (the more darkly pigmented skin surrounding the nipple). Surgical excision may be performed alone, or in conjunction with liposuction for the best results. In many instances, the areola is also larger than desired and this can be reduced as needed for optimal aesthetics of the chest.
