About Male Breast reduction
The scientific term gynecomastia is used for male breast enlargement. This condition is one that can result in feminine chest appearance due to the abnormal growth of breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is caused by an unknown hormonal condition. It can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, major weight gain or loss, or it can be hereditary. Men with this condition generally feel frustrated and anxious, even more so in situations where the chest area is shown such as at the beach or pool or while at the gym. Our board-certified plastic surgeons in Colorado Springs, CO perform cosmetic breast treatment for men who suffer from gynecomastia. This cosmetic treatment generally has a very high success and satisfaction rate. It is one of the more common cosmetic surgeries for men at the Institute of Plastic Surgery, and we completely value each patient's privacy and discretion.
Gynecomastia surgery is reserved for men with visible excess breast tissue that cannot be corrected through diet and exercise. If you are troubled by the look of your chest, yet are at a good weight, you could possibly benefit from this surgery. Male teens may also have good results from gynecomastia treatment; however, a future procedure may be necessary in a few years as an adult if new breast tissue continues to grow. In your initial consultation with your surgeon, treatment options will be presented, including the likelihood of having surgery to correct the condition.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"Dr. Dash is informative and sensitive to the needs of her patients. She answered my questions and really took time to understand my concerns. I'm very pleased with my experience with her and all of the staff at Institute of Plastic Surgery. They do more than surgery as well to include non-invasive cool sculpting produces, laser skin care as well as a skin care product line for better skin health. Many of my concerns were quickly put to rest with good information. Thank you."- K.G. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2019
"I highly recommend Institute Of Plastic Surgery, Dr Jain, Ashley and the office staff are polite professional and accommodating. Dr Jain takes the time to discuss all options with what results your personally wanting. He sets a plan in motion for what is best for you. After a few laser treatments my complexion is soft, smooth and has a glow. The injections I've received have been with great results. The compliments I receive from my family, friends and strangers are wonderful. I enjoy looking and feeling good about myself so I will continue returning for my treatments and facials.

Fat removal is almost always used during gynecomastia surgery. Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction is first used to help rid excess fat from the internal chest region. Afterwards, any loose or wrinkled skin will be excised to produce a tighter look, and then the nipple will be surgically reshaped and placed into a correct position. For most men, this technique requires an incision near where the glandular tissue resides. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been addressed, your surgeon will tighten the remaining skin.
What To Expect
After gynecomastia surgery, your chest will be wrapped with a compression bandage to help decrease swelling. For complex cases where a more invasive technique was used, a small tube for draining may be inserted to help with fluid. The before and after following gynecomastia treatment are almost immediately seen, and most men are extremely pleased with the cosmetic enhancement. Any incisions made during this procedure take a few weeks to heal, and any scars left behind are barely noticed. With your new, masculine-appearing chest, you may get clearance from your surgeon to continue exercise and weight training, which will assist in complementing the final outcome.
