Subpage Image

Male breast reduction is a common procedure for men with enlarged breasts, a condition called gynecomastia. Portland's Waldorf Center team knows that men with gynecomastia are usually self-conscious about the appearance of their chests, and they often attempt to improve the condition through strenuous workouts that bring little to no success.

Male breast reduction surgery can restore the chest to a tighter, flatter, masculine appearance. Dr. Kathleen Waldorf has been in practice for more than 20 years, during which she has performed numerous successful male breast reduction procedures, helping men feel more confident about the way they look.

Your Gynecomastia Surgery Consultation

The Waldorf Center philosophy is that patients should be well-informed when it comes to the procedures they choose, and this includes male breast reduction via gynecomastia surgery. Our surgeons meet with each patient to go over concerns and personal aesthetic goals. The consultation includes an examination and discussion of realistic potential outcomes, information on the surgery, and case-specific details.

Your Gynecomastia Surgery

Male breast reduction involves two key techniques. Liposuction is used to suction out excess fatty tissue in the chest. Excision techniques are used to remove excess skin and glandular tissue. The areolas (the darker skin around the nipple) and the nipples may need to be moved to a more central position. In some cases, you might want to reduce the size of the areolas as well.

Your surgeon will do everything she can to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible, and these scars will naturally flatten and lighten during the months following a gynecomastia correction procedure. Sometimes the incisions can be made around the edge of the areolas where the darkened skin will largely hide the scars. Additional incisions may be necessary, however, to provide you with an optimal result.

Your surgeon will discuss all of these specific issues with you prior to your surgery so that you know exactly what to expect.

Many patients can go home the same day after gynecomastia surgery.

Most men are required to wear a compression garment for a period of weeks, which will aid in swelling reduction and promote faster healing.

You should be able to return to full activities, including working out, after four to six weeks.

If your sutures were not dissolvable, the clinical staff will remove them during a post-surgical examination and will monitor your progress carefully to make sure you are healing properly.
