Male Breast Reduction
During your consultation, Dr. John Mesa, a Board Certified Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon will help you to feel comfortable explaining your goals and expectations, and your surgeon will assess your existing anatomy to determine the cause of your breast enlargement. Male breasts may be formed from fatty tissue and/or glandular tissue. If New Jersey and New York CIty male breast reduction surgery is right for you, it will be performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and in selected cases under local anesthesia. The procedure can last from 2 to 3 hours depending on the extent of correction. Surgery may require:
LIPOSUCTION FOR MEN
If your gynecomastia is primarily caused by fatty tissue, Dr. John Mesa may recommend Liposuction for MEN. Liposuction for MEN surgery can actually remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. A straw-like cannula is inserted through a tiny incision to remove excess fat cells. The result is a resculpting of bulging breasts into more attractive contours.
TRADITIONAL SURGICAL EXCISION
If your gynecomastia is the result of a glandular disorder, Liposuction for MEN alone is not likely to be adequate. Traditional surgical excision may be a better option.

Dr. John Mesa will work through these incisions to cut away the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from the breast.
