Q: Dear Dr. Man, I have a problem that has caused me to be self-conscious since I was a teenager. I am a 22-year-old male and I have “man breasts.”  Now that I’m out of college, I want to get this fixed so I can build my self-confidence and start dating more.  Can you recommend what I need done to fix my problem?

A: The condition you have is rarely talked about, but it’s actually quite common, affecting an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men. Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek words for “women-like breasts. It is one of the most common procedures performed for men. In fact, it is one of the top five cosmetic procedures conducted on males. Though certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment, there is no known cause in the vast majority of cases.

For men like you who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast-reduction surgery can help.  The procedure removes fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts and, in extreme cases, removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.

The initial consultation with your surgeon is very important. Your surgeon will need a complete medical history and physical exam.  First, your surgeon will examine your breasts and check for causes of the gynecomastia.  If a medical problem is the suspected cause, you’ll be referred to an appropriate specialist.  In extreme cases, your plastic surgeon may also recommend a mammogram, or breast x-ray.  This will not only rule out the very small possibility of breast cancer, but will reveal the breast’s composition.

Once your surgeon knows how much fat and glandular tissue is contained within the breasts, he or she can choose a surgical approach to best suit your needs.

Liposuction is usually performed, and can be combined with the AccuSculpt 1444 laser. The surgery itself usually takes about an hour and a half to complete, while other procedures may take longer.

Gynecomastia surgery can enhance your appearance and self-confidence.  The results of the procedure are significant and permanent. If your expectations are realistic, chances are good that you’ll be very satisfied with your new look.  Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to see if this procedure is right for you.  Good luck!
