Tired of the Laughs and Jokes? Male Chest Reduction May Be Your Answer.
If you are a man with fatty deposits over your pectoral muscle, you understand it’s no laughing matter. Gynecomastia, or the development of male breasts, is a common yet untreated condition that can create self-consciousness for men. If you are reluctant to remove your shirt in public, to swim, play sports, or exercise, you may wish to consider a chest reduction with Dr. Johnston.
What is Male Chest Reduction (Gynecomastia Surgery)?
Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia correction surgery, is a procedure to reduce the chest size for men in Orlando. Dr. Johnston may use one or a combination of two techniques; liposuction and eliminating excess glandular tissue (excision technique).
Am I a Good Candidate for Male Chest Reduction in the Orlando Area?
You may be an excellent candidate for this procedure if you ever feel uncomfortable about the contours of your chest, whether clothed or unclothed. If you are looking for a more substantial solution, contact Orlando Plastic Surgery Associates to schedule your consultation. Dr. Johnston will discuss the pros and cons of this procedure, as well as listen to your thoughts and goals. If you are in general good health and have realistic expectations of surgery, you are most likely a good candidate for male chest reduction.
What Can I Expect from Male Chest Reduction?
Male chest reduction can provide immediate results with relatively little downtime and a short recovery period. Following their procedure, patients will notice a more contoured, refined chest. Swelling and bruising may occur after the surgery, but with time, this should subside.

Gynecomastia is an abnormal swelling of the male breast, usually caused by an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone during puberty. It can also be caused by some prescription medications and supplements. Fortunately, it can usually be easily treated. The technique used in this procedure includes the removal of the abnormal tissue by a combination of liposuction and direct excision.
During your complimentary consultation, we will provide you with a specific cost estimate customized to your distinct needs.
What is Included
Typically, costs include surgeon’s fees (includes all office visits and surgery), anesthesia fees, facility fees, baseline labs, CosmetAssure® insurance program if applicable and a pre-operative goody bag with prescriptions, supplies, pre- and post-surgical instruction booklets and post-surgical recovery kit (includes initial garments, homeopathic medications to reduce bruising and scar reduction supplies).
X-rays, EKG (electrocardiogram if over 50), and specialty consultations if needed are not included.
How Long is Recovery from Male Chest Reduction?
After surgery, Dr. Johnston will apply a compress dressing and prescribe pain medication to help you through the recovery and healing process. Depending on the severity of your gynecomastia and the techniques performed, recovery times will vary. On average, patients treated with a combination of liposuction and excision methods will likely return to work after one week. Gynecomastia correction surgery has a relatively short recovery period compared to other procedures.
