What Are My Gynecomastia Surgery Options?

Gynecomastia surgery is a safe and effective procedure. Liposuction removes the excess male breast tissue. Optimally a 3mm incision is made in the chest for liposuction and a small incision at the areola to access fat and gland. If there is extra skin, it may require more incisions. The chest is then sculpted for natural-looking contours that complement your frame.

What Can I Expect After My Gynecomastia Procedure?

A compression garment is worn the first few weeks after surgery to minimize potential swelling and provide support to healing tissues. Most patients return to work 5 to 7 days post-surgery. You may resume exercise at 30 days after your procedure. 60 days for more strenuous exercise.

    After months of an intensive search for an experienced , board certified plastic surgeon for gynecomastia, I chose Dr. Crispin. It was important to me that my surgeon had many years of experience with this procedure. Dr. Crispin advised how common this issue is for men and performs 2-4 male breast reductions a week. I was ready to have the surgery immediately. Recovery was fairly easy. I was sore but that was to be expected. My result is pretty spectacular. This was a life changing procedure and my only regret was not getting it done sooner. Thank you Dr. Crispin
