What Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that treats gynecomastia (overly developed male breast tissue). During this procedure, Dr. Greenwald removes excess fatty tissue from the chest using liposuction. If the patient also has excess skin, Dr. Greenwald might create small incisions through which the excess tissue is removed. Often, a combination of both surgical techniques is needed to achieve the best possible results.
Dr. Greenwald conducts comprehensive consultations with each male breast reduction Westchester patient in order to create an individualized treatment plan. During this time, he also explains the benefits and risks of this procedure. Most men feel more confident after undergoing gynecomastia treatment in New York City, especially in situations whereby the chest is exposed, such as at the beach or gym. While complications occur very rarely, they might include infection, pain and risks associated with anesthesia. As a highly experienced surgeon, Dr. Greenwald takes every precaution to minimize risks and enhance patient safety.
How Long Is the Recovery Process For Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
The recovery time for a male breast reduction patient can vary depending on the specifics of their surgery.

Most men are able to go back to work within a week, and resume typical exercise within a couple of weeks.
How Much Does Male Breast Reduction Cost?
