Gynecomastia is the medical term to describe enlarged male breasts. It is a condition that can create an appearance that starts to look less masculine due to abnormally growing breast tissue.
Gynecomastia may be related to an underlying hormonal issue. It can also be caused by certain medications, steroids, obesity, marijuana use, or genetics.
Men with this issue typically feel frustrated and anxious, especially in circumstances where the upper body and chest are seen such as by the beach or in the gym.
Scottsdale, AZ plastic surgeon Dr. James Nachbar offers male breast reduction surgery for men who have gynecomastia. This surgical procedure has a high success rate. It is considered one of the more popular cosmetic procedures for men at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery.
Male breast reduction surgery is a procedure for men who have enlarged breasts that cannot be reduced with a healthy lifestyle or exercise and diet. If you are troubled by the appearance of your chest, and are physically healthy, you may benefit from gynecomastia surgery by Dr. Nachbar at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery.
Teenagers may also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, a secondary procedure may be warranted later during adulthood if abnormal breast tissue continues to form.
During your first appointment with Dr. Nachbar, treatment considerations will be discussed, and may include the possibility of undergoing surgery to repair the condition.
"Been to this office before and the staff is wonderful. The doctor is great and I love his work."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Apr 26, 2018
"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Nachbar and his staff. Since his staff were my first and last points of contact, I'll start with them. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. I flew in from out of state for tattoo excision. From the initial contact to walking out the door following my surgical follow-up the day after the procedure, they were kind, polite and accommodating. The smiles and kindness don't feel put on or forced -- his staff seem to be genuinely happy, nice people. Dr. Nachbar was very polite and extremely good at what he did. He gave me a great explanation of what he would do and he was able to exceed my expectations. I had minimal post-surgical pain -- I have actually managed my pain with OTC pain relievers, although he did give me a prescription. Dr. Nachbar was very respectful and treated his staff in a respectful fashion as well. I was very happy with the treatment I received and I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar. I legitimately wish I had known of him and seen him first for excision tattoo removal before spending $2K on laser treatments that had no measurable affect."- E.J. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"It's been 7yrs and my surgery results are still amazing. I get a text from Dr. Nachbar's office every year checking in with me. I can't recommend them highly enough. After my experience there my friend also went in and had a procedure and is extremely happy with her results as well."- D.A. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"Tummy Tuck - The overall care, skill and follow up by Dr. Nachbar and his staff were outstanding. The same can be said about Greenbaum Surgery Center who did an excellent job.My surgery was done in the morning approx 8:30 a.m and by 5:00 pm I felt very confident that the final result will be great. Dr. Nachbar visited me that night which was very comforting. He's compassionate and highly skillful at his profession."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Sep 06, 2018
"Breast Implant Revision - Dr. Nachbar and his staff were so professional, patient, and put me at ease. I spoke to his staff regarding their surgeries with Dr. Nachbar and I was so impressed. Dr. Nachbar gave me all the time I needed and was so thorough that I had no doubt he was going to be my surgeon, despite the heavy expense. I felt I was in the best hands in the world."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Aug 29, 2018
Liposuction is often used during surgery for gynecomastia, and may involve ultrasonic liposuction to help break up and remove the excess tissue. With the patient safely under general anesthesia, liposuction is applied to help rid excess pockets of fat from the chest wall.
In some cases, Dr. Nachbar will make a small incision by the areola to remove some excess glandular tissue.
What To Expect
Following gynecomastia treatment, your chest may be secured with a medical garment to help decrease bruising and swelling.
The results following male breast reduction surgery should be immediately noticeable, but maximal improvement will be visible after six to twelve weeks, when the swelling is resolved.
The incisions made during treatment take several weeks to heal.
Once healing is complete, exercise and strength training will complement the end results.
