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
"I came in for a consultation with Dr Jain today and he spent nearly an hour with me! No it isnt because im in terrible shape :) It seems to be his approach to skin care and I really appreciate it. He did a full consult to address my long term goals and was clearly very knowledgeable, conservative and professional. On top of that he is incredibly kind and gracious as is him entire staff. I think I have found a partner to work with for years to come!"- M.P. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2020
"I am beyond ecstatic of the professionalism and perfection that I received from Dr. Dash and her entire team. I would recommend them over and over again. Dr. Dash made me feel so comfortable from day one. I explained to her my worries and weaknesses, and she ensured me that I was in great hands, and that I was. Dr. Dash and her husband worked on me together due to the multiple procedures I was having and what an awesome team they are. At the surgery center I was told that you always want to seek out perfectionist surgeons and that is what you have. I could not agree any less. The day of operation i was walking around by day 3, i no longer needed my walker and was more mobile than I thought I would ever be. Do your research and make sure you feel comfortable with the surgeon and team that you choose. Its a big surgery and an expensive investment, and YOU DESERVE ONLY THE BEST! THANK YOU DR DASH AND TEAM. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs."- H.K. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2020
"I felt very comfortable every step of the way, from first interview through the last post surgery visit. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The blepharoplasty surgery results are exactly what I requested, very natural looking. Dr Jain (a super nice person) clearly listened to my thoughts about the procedure and desired results, offered options and information to consider, and at no time did I feel pressured in any way. I have recommended this office wholeheartedly to friends, and would go back myself in a second with any further surgery ideas!"- H.H. / Google / Jan 28, 2020
"I am a raving fan of the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I have worked in the beauty industry in London, Paris, New York, L.A. Montreal and Vancouver. This place rivals big city style. From the moment you walk in the front door and are greeted by the smiles. The ‘understand YOUR world’ attitudes of Shalom and Arriana guide you into the elegant relaxed ambiance. My first appointment was to see Dr. Jain. I was sixtynine and was looking at a face lift. When I left the office the face lift was off the table...replaced by a group of small procedures....the ultherapy was a dream. Pulling up my neck and adding collagen to my face. How exciting! Ashley was my technician and she is quite simply amazing. My time with her went by so incredibly fast. I will be returning for more of these treatments in the years to come. Ashley also did some of my BBL treatments. Thankyou Ashley. Nicole has been my technician along with Ashley for the BBL treatments recommended by Dr. Jain. Nicole is a sweet spirit who also did the deep cleansing treatment on my face. I could not have been more impressed with the results of both these procedures. Thankyou Nicole.And now to the star of the show....Dr. Jain. Dr. Jain is marvelous! From his very relaxed demeanor to his extremely extensive knowledge of his field Dr. Jain decided what was best for me. He was bang on. Yes, he would have made so much more money by doing the prementioned face lift. I did not need a face lift! I needed exactly what he recommended. I feel and look great. Dr. Jain has injected Botox at the outside corners of my eyes...not overly done...just perfection. He certainly is the wizard of needles! Last summer’s broken neck left me with dominant neck cords. Dr. Jain’s finesse with the needle has softened these cords immensely. I have filler in my gnarly hands. They lost at least fifteen years immediately. I have also had filler around my mouth and lower face...the filler lasts about a year and Dr. Jain never gives me an over the top look. Thank you to Dr. Jain my new sensational beauty coach! I love my new family. Many Thankyou’s to all of you. Also a very special Thankyou for the gorgeous orchid plant you sent after I broke my neck. As mentioned before I am your a Raving Fan!I am so thrilled with my beauty family. I broke my neck last summer and shortly after I came home from the surgery I received a gorgeous orchid plant from Dr.Jain and his staff. It really is the little things that make this Institute an outstanding place to visit. All the little polished touches that welcome you to Dr. Jain’s world. I am so thrilled that I am now a part of this world. It is a perfect outcome for me."- J.P. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
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.
