Restore Your Masculine Chest with Male Breast Reduction in New Orleans

Men who live with excess breast tissue often feel self-conscious. They may avoid situations where their chests could be exposed, such as the pool or beach. Rather than feeling you need to hide your body, call SANDS Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Trey Sands for a customized male breast reduction surgery.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition where the male breast tissue is enlarged, resulting in breasts having a more feminine look, protruding visibly from the chest. This condition can affect men in multiple stages of life and can develop due to:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Weight gain
  • Heredity
  • Medications

Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts with varying degrees of severity. Dr. Sands performs male breast reduction surgery with the most advanced surgical techniques at SANDS Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery.

How is Male Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

The main goal of gynecomastia surgery is to remove excess fat or tissue in the breasts and create a flatter, more masculine chest. Dr. Sands understands the unique needs of his male patients and will sculpt your chest to create a more sculpted look, free from excess fat or glandular tissue. Typical male breast reduction procedures consist of surgical excisions and liposuction. The incisions are meticulously placed to make post-surgical scarring as minimal as possible.

Am I a Good Candidate for Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

Men with enlarged or protruding breasts and no medical contraindications for surgery are good candidates for this procedure. Dr. Sands and our medical team will assess your health, medical history, and expectations to help you decide if male breast reduction suits you. We will also discuss how to prepare for your procedure and what you can expect.

Will I Need to Take Time Off From Work and My Regular Schedule?

The recovery time for male breast surgery varies depending on the extent of the procedure and your overall health. Generally, you can expect to take a few days off work or other regular activities to allow time for rest and healing. Avoid physical activity for several weeks after surgery to allow the incisions to heal. 

What Can I Expect After Surgery?

After your surgery, bandages will be placed on your chest to protect the tissues as they heal and control swelling. Some degree of bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort is expected, which will gradually subside in the days ahead. Rest assured, you will receive comprehensive aftercare instructions, and we will monitor your progress throughout your recovery. After your healing process, you can expect a flatter, more masculine chest, with the upper chest firmly and sculpted.
