They’ve been the subject of many jokes, but if you are a male with fatty deposits over the pectoral muscles, you know it’s no laughing matter. If you are reluctant to remove your shirt in public, to swim, to participate in sports or to exercise at a gym because of this, you may wish to consider a chest reduction with Dr. Johnston.
What is Male Chest Reduction?
Male chest reduction (gynecomastia) is a procedure to reduce breast size in men in Orlando. Dr. Johnston utilizes several reduction methods, including liposuction, removing excess glandular tissue, or a combination of both.

What can I expect from Male Chest Reduction?
Male chest reduction in Orlando and Lake Mary can bring amazing results with a somewhat small recovery period and downtime. Most patients can expect a more contoured and refined chest area following this procedure and will notice the results almost immediately. Swelling and bruising may occur during the recovery period but will eventually subside.
How long is the recovery from Male Chest Reduction?
Recovery time following gynecomastia depends on the severity of your condition and the degree of what was performed. The average patient, treated with a combination of liposuction and breast gland tissue excision, will likely be back to work after a week. Gynecomastia usually has a relatively short recovery period. Dr. Johnston will apply a compress dressing and prescribe medication for pain to assist in the recovery and healing process.
