Male breast reduction, also known as correction of gynecomastia, surgically reduces the size of the male breast. Gynecomastia correction primarily involves the reduction of glandular, fatty tissue through surgical removal. This technique is used in conjunction with liposuction of any surrounding fatty tissue to achieve an ideal result. Male breasts can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort for men; gynecomastia correction can achieve a flatter more masculine chest by reducing unwanted fat and excess glandular tissue that contribute to an enlarged male breast. Gynecomastia correction can also positively impact an individual’s psychosocial wellbeing. Each case is unique and is evaluated on an individual basis by Dr. Hovsepian. There are many types of chest deformity that can appear. It can be as minimal as "puffy" nipples, or as significant as a C or D cup breast size. The treatment plan and results a patient can expect will differ depending on the situation.

Prior to your procedure you will need to begin fasting 8 hours before coming into the Beverly Hills or Newport Beach surgical center, this means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.
Male breast reduction (gynecomastia) surgery is performed under general anesthesia, meaning you will be completely asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a near-by hotel or aftercare facility, where a "private duty" nurse is available if required. Afterward, you will return to your home, hotel or aftercare facility conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center.
