All men have some breast tissue under the nipple. For some, there is either more breast tissue or the normal breast tissue has developed somewhat. This creates a projection under the nipple. Any swelling under the nipple, areola or on the male chest can give a “breast look” that is embarrassing. For almost all guys, the “why” is not known.
As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Ditesheim understands how men feel about their bodies and the special concerns they have for approaching cosmetic surgery as a solution. He uses the less invasive AquaShape liposuction for almost all male breast reduction procedures, helping men sculpt a naturally flat & firm chest shape with excellent results.

Whether through liposuction alone or with additional cosmetic surgery techniques, we can help you achieve a more masculine, firmer chest and restore confidence in your body-image.

Basically, if you are bothered by the appearance of your chest because of excess fat or breast tissue, a male breast reduction is an option to consider.

Every man is different, and gynecomastia may present itself in a number of ways. Some men have puffy or prominent nipples, while others experience more widespread enlargement of breast tissue. Dr. Ditesheim will help you choose the best procedure option based on your anatomy and personal goals.

Using Dr. Ditesheim’s scarless technique, there is no scar on the chest, minimal to no bruising or swelling and a return to work or school the next day. Exercise can be resumed within the week. If a minimal scar is needed around the edge of the nipple to remove firmer breast tissue, the recovery can still be as quick. Even with a tailoring of excess skin, there is a quick recovery from gynecomastia surgery with minimal bruising and swelling with the ability to resume activities within 4-5 days.
For most men, the scar can be hidden completely. Using AquaShape liposuction, it is now possible to correct male breasts without a visible scar on the chest. A small skin slit is made in the armpit and a tube is inserted under the skin to remove the breast tissue. If there is firmer breast tissue, then a small scar is made at the edge of the nipple. When the nipple skin shrinks, the scar heals almost invisibly.
