One of the more common concerns among men when it comes to their looks is an overdeveloped or feminine appearance of the chest. Unfortunately, in many cases there is often little that can be done with diet or exercise alone. However, a personalized male breast reduction can help to re-sculpt the chest with remarkably natural-looking results.
Dr. Leipziger recommends male breast reduction surgery for men struggling with gynecomastia, a common condition characterized by an enlarged or swollen look of a man’s chest. He works closely with each patient to create a gynecomastia treatment designed to target your specific concerns and goal outcome.
What is Gynecomastia and Male Breast Reduction?
Gynecomastia is a common condition in which the male chest appears enlarged or swollen due to the presence of excess breast tissue and/or fat. This often leads to a more curvy or feminine chest appearance and may cause issues with self-esteem. Despite what many men may think, gynecomastia cannot be easily corrected with just a healthy diet and exercise/weightlifting alone.
Male breast reduction is the cosmetic surgical correction of gynecomastia. Dr. Leipziger treats each individual as a unique case, and the specific steps of any given male breast reduction will vary based on your goals and condition. Male breast reduction surgery with Dr. Leipziger usually consists of removal of excess breast tissue, liposuction of excess chest fat, and reshaping the breast for a more masculine contour.

“Exceptional doctor, staff, results and overall experience. I’m so grateful for Dr. Leipziger and his patience, knowledge and attentiveness throughout the entire process. He truly earned and deserves every single one of these 5 stars!”5 Star Review on RealSelf
1) Dr. Leipziger recommends that men reach a stable weight prior to considering a male breast reduction. In some cases, losing excess fat can achieve the desired result. However, if you are unhappy with an enlarged appearance of your chest despite reaching your goal weight, a male breast reduction can be a truly rewarding procedure.
2) Gynecomastia surgery targets excess breast tissue and fat in order to create well-sculpted results. It’s this presence of excess tissue and fat that often causes the appearance of “enlarged male breasts”. Once reshaped, Dr. Leipziger is able to provide patients with completely natural and masculine-looking results.
3) Be ready to take some time off work and your workout routine after surgery. It’s important that you allow your body enough time to heal in order to achieve optimal results. Most of Dr. Leipziger’s male breast reduction surgery patients are able to return to work within about a week. You will need to take several weeks before returning to the gym for upper body exercise. You will need to have someone drive you home and assist you during your recovery.
Most importantly, don’t hesitate to give our office a call should you have any questions during your recovery period. Dr. Leipziger will provide you with detailed instructions for your gynecomastia treatment aftercare and will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing and ensure your best possible outcome.
