Male Breast Reduction

Our Male Breast Reduction Marin County Services

Although it may not seem like it, male breast reduction Marin County is actually a more common procedure than you may think. There are many reasons why men in Santa Rosa, and other parts of Marin County look to have this procedure, but the main one is a medical condition known as Gynecomastia. 

This condition refers to the storing of excess fat and glandular tissue in the male chest. And while the causes can range from a side effect from illness, or certain medication, it affects roughly 50% of all men. Gynecomastia is not deadly, nor is it harmful, but for many men it can be an embarrassing, uncomfortable, and a bit of an aesthetic eyesore.

If you’re living in Santa Rosa, San Rafael, Sausalito, Mill Valley, and Marin County in general, chances are you know someone who’s had this simple procedure. If you are considering doing it for yourself, there are a few things you should be aware of first. In performing the facelift procedure, we rejuvenate the face and skin by removing excess skin, and tightening the muscles under the skin. This takes years off your look, and has a smooth, aesthetically pleasing appearance. We can perform this procedure for patients of nearly any age, and can combine it with other facial procedures to give you a complete look that YOU want, simply and safely.

Performing male breast reduction procedures is both safe, and convenient, especially for men looking to flatten and tone their upper body. The procedure is typically done using a combination of liposuction and surgery, depending on how much fat/tissue needs to be removed. At our Marin County practice, we first give you a thorough consultation to see what your needs are, and then work with you to find the best fit and procedure for your body type. Male breast reduction procedures can be done in one day, and recovery time lasts from 2-4 weeks for most patients. We use the latest in medical techniques and technology, and as in all of our procedures, put safety and comfort at the forefront of what we do.

How We Perform Our Male Breast Reduction Procedures

Much like female breast reduction or augmentation, we use a technique that leaves minimal scarring, and maximum post-procedural comfort. Some times, only a non-invasive liposuction procedure is required. Other times, we may need to make an incision to remove fat. In the case of surgery, the incision is made around the areola at the base of the nipple. Many men, and women here in Marin County prefer this incision method as it is the most aesthetically pleasing, and leaves little visible marks or scaring. We then remove the fat and excessive glandular tissue, and may use a combination of both excision surgery and liposuction, depending on your body type.

The Benefits of Male Breast Reduction Marin County

This procedure may seem intimidating for many men as it’s not as widely talked about as similar female surgeries. The results, however, are immense, and can work wonders on boosting confidence, enhancing your aesthetic appearance, and alleviating discomfort you may be feeling as a result of excess fat and breast tissue. Our Marin County staff and surgeon are highly trained and experienced with male breast reduction, and offer the best quality service and patient care in the area. We won’t perform the procedure until you’re happy with the plan, and will customize our operation based on your body type and what you want to do with it. If you’re not happy, we’re not happy, and our history of satisfied patients is proof of this.
