Male Breast Reduction is a surgical technique designed to reduce enlarged, female-like breasts in men (known as gynecomastia), giving patients the opportunity to enjoy a more toned, masculine appearance. Dr. Vitenas provides gynecomastia treatment in Houston at his private practice.
The Male Breast Reduction Procedure
Gynecomastia correction generally takes one to two hours to complete, and is performed using general anesthesia. During the surgery, liposuction techniques may be used to remove excess fatty tissue, while excision removes excess glandular tissue and skin.
Your gynecomastia surgery will be performed in the Houston Surgery Center, which is Dr. Vitenas’ private surgical center. It’s located in the same building as Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, on Richmond Avenue in Houston.
While a male breast reduction is not painful, there may be some tightness and tenderness in the chest following your male breast reduction procedure. Dr. Vitenas will prescribe the needed pain medications to make sure you are comfortable during your recovery.
