Male Breast Reduction


Male Breast ReductionA male breast reduction reduces enlarged breasts in men, or gynecomastia. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Olding is considered a top provider of male breast reduction in Washington, D.C. Dr. Olding’s patients often report greater self-confidence and an improved quality of life as a result of this procedure.

What Is a Male Breast Reduction?

This procedure can involve liposuction and/or removing excess glandular tissue. The goal of a male breast reduction is to create a flatter, firmer, and more masculine appearance to the chest.

Dr. Olding strives to minimize incisions and place them in locations where they are hidden whenever possible. However, in severe gynecomastia cases or in massive weight loss patients, large amounts of excess skin may need to be removed as well. Excising larger amounts of excess skin requires larger scars.

The procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis. Patients usually return to work within a week and to strenuous activity within three weeks. Swelling and bruising generally subside in three to six months. The results are permanent.

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful. After several consultations with other plastic surgeons I settled on Dr. Olding because I believed he was the most qualified and showed the best judgment while explaining my procedure to me. He was also recommended to me by my trusted dermatologist so that factored into my decision as well.
