As the stigma surrounding plastic surgery continues fading, more men are scheduling consultations with plastic surgeons for various reasons. For several years, one of the most popular procedures among males has been male breast reduction. New Orleans and Lafayette men often travel to our Baton Rouge-area locations to have gynecomastia surgery.
Male breast reduction creates a more masculine-looking chest for adolescent and adult men who have overdeveloped breast tissue. This condition, called gynecomastia, can be caused by genetic predisposition, hormonal changes associated with puberty, or certain drugs such as steroids or marijuana. Whatever the cause, having excess breast tissue can make men so self-conscious that they avoid activities that involve removing their shirts.
Male Breast Reduction Before-and-After Photos
As these photos demonstrate, patients who get gynecomastia surgery are often younger men who are in fairly good shape. Many people mistakenly associate “man boobs” with guys who are overweight. You can see that’s not the case.
Additionally, no one can really tell that a male breast reduction patient has had plastic surgery. The results look very natural, and scars are virtually imperceptible. Take a look at the 5 cases showcased below to see some of our patients’ results and the skill of our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Jonathan Weiler and Dr. M’liss Hogan.
As you can see, this patient is fairly lean but was self-conscious about the size of his breasts. Male breast reduction removes excess fat using liposuction, as well as excising tissue from the chest area.
Dr. Weiler performed male breast reduction surgery for this patient, creating a contoured chest that looks completely natural and in proportion with the rest of his body.
Even without any chest hair, it’s impossible to detect any scarring or signs that this patient underwent plastic surgery. He can now feel more self-assured when he wears snug-fitting shirts.
The results for this patient are quite dramatic. He went from having a textbook case of gynecomastia to having a chest he can feel confident about.
Dr. Hogan performed male breast reduction on this patient, who no longer feels like he has to keep his shirt on in situations where he would be more comfortable without.
