What is gynecomastia surgery? 

Male gynecomastia treatment in Montreal


Gynecomastia is a common condition that refers to excess breast tissue development in males. Sometimes referred to as “Gyno”, it is not generally a health concern, but can cause issues with self-esteem and self-confidence in men, thus a male breast reduction is an excellent way to help those experiencing gynecomastia. In some cases, the weight of larger breasts can cause the areolas to stretch, so Dr. Izadpanah may also recommend Nipple Surgery to reduce the nipple size as well.   


Treatment for gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)

Gynecomastia surgery options


Gynecomastia is caused by a hormonal imbalance of estrogen and testosterone, causing overdevelopment of breast tissue (either breast gland tissue or fat). It can affect both sides or only one and can be uneven. This can be temporary and may go away on its own, but if it persists, then male breast reduction is a practical solution.  

Dr. Arash Izadpanah will assess the best plan of action for your male breast reduction using one or more of the following techniques.  

  • Removal of breast gland tissue (gynecomastia) via surgical incisions similar to breast lift 
  • Removing fatty tissue using liposuction  
  • A combination of breast gland tissue removal and liposuction if both enlarged glandular tissue and fat are present  
  • Areola reduction surgery or puffy nipple correction  

Dr. Izadpanah will discuss all of your options during consultation, and will work with you to ensure you are on the same page to achieve your desired results.  Our goal is for you to be completely satisfied and confident with your outcome. The entire process and experience is completely custom to each individual patient to your specific wishes. 


Who is a candidate for gynecomastia surgery?

Is a male breast reduction an option for you?

Dr. Arash will give you an honest assessment and let you know if you are a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery, but in general you should be in good overall health with no medical conditions that can impair healing, must be a nonsmoker or willing to quit smoking, and have realistic expectations.   

Candidates for gynecomastia will also be men who cannot change their condition with alternative treatments, are at a healthy and stable weight, breast development is stable, and are bothered by their breast size.
