Gynecomastia is the medical word used for male breast enlargement. It is a condition that can result in a female-like chest look due to the abnormal growth of breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal condition. This condition can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, major weight gain or loss, or genetics. Men with this issue generally feel anxious and embarrassed, even more so in circumstances where the chest area is exposed like the swimming pool or in the gym.

"The Eyes Have It! - I researched countless services and discovered Dr. Schwartz among several well respected plastic surgeons. I began calling the providers and after considering the professionalism of the office staff and information provided via the internet and phone, I consulted with two surgeons in person. I waited an hour and five minutes before being seen by one surgeon who was pretentious, unapologetic and spent 10 minutes describing multiple procedures he recommended, without listening to me. My experience with Dr. Schwartz was far different. His staff was professional and friendly. Although Dr. Schwartz is very skilled in his profession, he was unpretentious, personable, and listened to my concerns. He laid out a specific plan for blepharoplasty and didn’t try to sell other procedures."- O. / RealSelf / May 05, 2018

Fat removal is typically used during gynecomastia surgery. Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction is first used to remove excess fat from the chest wall. Next, any loose or wrinkled skin will be excised to create a tighter appearance, and then the nipple will be placed into a correct position. In most cases, this technique requires a small incision near where the glandular tissue resides. Once the fat and loose skin have been addressed, Dr. Schwartz will tighten the remaining skin.
What To Expect
After gynecomastia treatment, your chest will be wrapped with a medical garment to help eliminate swelling. In advanced cases where a more invasive technique was used, a drainage tube may be inserted to assist with fluid buildup. The surgical results following gynecomastia treatment are immediately seen and most patients are extremely pleased with the physical change. The incisions made during this procedure take a few weeks to heal and scarring is usually barely seen. With your enhanced chest, you can get clearance from Dr. Schwartz to continue exercise and strength training, which will assist in complementing the final outcome.
