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.

"Labiaplasty - Truth be told, I have always been fascinated with plastic surgery. I truly believe it you want something done and you believe it will benefit yourself in the long run, I see no problem with finding an answer to your solution. Well truth be told, I found the answer to my solution. Since this was indeed my first procedure and taste of the plastic surgery relm, I had no idea what to expect. I was very pleased with how smooth the entire process was. I loved my doctor, the nurses were fantastic and I had a very easy recovery time. I am so happy with my results, I would recommend this procedure to anyone I deemed up for it. I felt very taken care of with no sense of judgment whatsoever. His office is very clean, beautiful and conveniently located. He is full of knowledge and is not one of those money-hungry surgeons who would just recommend a procedure because he wants to get paid. He is the type of doctor that would not perform a procedure on you if he felt that is was not necessary. I felt very secure with this because I knew I made a wonderful decision picking him as my surgeon. 10/10 would recommend and I will be going back in the future."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Mar 15, 2018
"I cannot say enough to thank Dr. Nachbar and his staff for everything they have done for me. From the time of my first phone call I was treated with respect and valued. I requested multiple appointments before scheduling as new questions came up especially as I had consults with other surgeons who would suggest something different. Dr. Nachbar took his time to explain to me the differences and his opinions on what other surgeons had said. My husband works out of state and they had no issue with me facetiming him during consults. I feel like Dr. Nachbar was very realistic in what I could expect from my surgeries and he definitely delivered on what he said he could do. I never felt like he was pressed for time and I never waited around in the office to see him. He was always very prompt and the one time he was late (due to a major accident blocking all roads to the office) he was very apologetic. His staff was amazing and always made me feel welcome. They never seemed annoyed when I had to bring my kids to an appointment. Overall I have and would recommend him to anyone. I never felt like just another number or paycheck I felt valued and respected which is hard to find in the medical profession these days. Thank you again to Dr. Nachbar and his staff for helping me complete my weight loss transformation."- J.G. / Google / Mar 11, 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.
