FAQs

WHAT IS GYNECOMASTIA?

Gynecomastia is a condition common in men that is characterized by a build-up of fatty tissue in the chest area. In many cases, this condition is resistant to diet and exercise. Gynecomastia surgery, also called male breast reduction, is a procedure that removes excess fat and tissue in the male breast and chest to create a more sculpted, masculine appearance. Gynecomastia surgery may be necessary for patients who have struggled with gynecomastia for a few years or longer.

HOW MUCH DOES GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY COST?

The cost of your gynecomastia surgery at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan we develop for you. During your consultation, Dr. Eko will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that best suits you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment until you had the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.

WHAT IS THE GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY PROCEDURE LIKE?

During gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Eko makes small incisions around the nipples where the resulting scars can be concealed. Breast tissue is then removed through these incisions to create the desired results. If fat deposits are an issue, liposuction may also be used to further sculpt the chest. Gynecomastia is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you may go home after your procedure.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY?

After surgery, most patients will experience swelling and discomfort that can last up to a week or two. During this time, patients may need to take about a week off of work to rest and heal. After this period, patients will need to limit exercise and other strenuous activities for approximately one month.

ARE THE RESULTS FROM GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY PERMANENT?

Breast tissue and fat are removed from the chest, so patients can enjoy permanent results from gynecomastia surgery. The results are immediate, but its full effects are usually apparent within several months. However, it is important to note that weight gain can impact the results of your surgery. We encourage patients to maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits in order to maintain their results.
