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 would like to share my experience with Dr. Rupesh Jain at the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I came to see Dr. Jain in regards to information about a fat transfer to my face and lips, as well as information about receiving dysport and fillers. I decided to schedule a consultation with him both because of his reviews but more importantly because he is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. Prior to my visit I filled out paperwork online regarding my medical history so that during my consultation with him he would be prepared to answer my many questions. I am an unusual case because I have an auto-immune disorder called Scleroderma. It can cause hardening and discoloration of the skin, thinning of the lips, shrinking of the opening of the mouth, and an over production of collagen to name a few of the effects of the disease. The above stated ailments are part of the reasons why I came to see him. My goal was to try and regain the Pre-Scleroderma appearance of my face since my diagnosis. During my first meeting with Dr. Jain, it was obvious that he had reviewed my medical history and was ready to discuss why I had searched out his services. He made me feel completely comfortable and not at all rushed. He listened to my concerns, and what my desired outcomes were. He explained clearly and in laymen’s terms what the reality of receiving those outcomes were. He told me what treatments would work best and why others would be either less effective or riskier to pursue. I was given up front costs and did not feel pressured at all to go for the more expensive procedures. I have been seeing Dr. Jain for quite some time now taking a step-by-step approach to achieving the results I desire with the least risk involved to my challenging health issue. I couldn’t be happier with results I have achieved thus far. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Jain and his excellent care. His staff is top notch and his bedside manner is a rare blessing. I would highly recommend Dr. Jain and the Institute of Plastic Surgery to anyone seeking specialized plastic surgery treatment."- A.J. / Google / Mar 22, 2021

"I had the best experience with Dr. Dash and her wonderful team. I can't tell you how comfortable and heard I felt. I'm so grateful for everything they've done for me. 10/10 if youre looking for a kind and comfortable environment, it's there."- L.L. / Facebook / Mar 11, 2021
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.
