EXCELLENCE AND EXPERIENCE IN PLASTIC SURGERY

Male Breast Reduction

Based in New York City

Male breast reduction is a body contouring procedure that can give the chest a flatter, smoother, and more masculine appearance. Male breast reduction surgery is commonly performed on men who suffer from a condition known as gynecomastia and on men with excess fat accumulation in the chest. Dr. Gerald Imber is a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who is dedicated to providing the best male breast reduction results New York City has to offer.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the overdevelopment of the male breasts. This creates the appearance of “man boobs”. While this issue can be caused by fat accumulation within the breasts, patients who suffer from gynecomastia experience this issue due to excess glandular tissue within the breasts. Gynecomastia is typically a benign issue that is not life-threatening but can cause self-image issues.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is commonly caused by changes in hormone levels within the male body. It commonly occurs in males who are going through puberty which causes fluctuation in hormone levels, as well as aging males who are experiencing hormonal changes. Other potential causes of gynecomastia could be the use of certain medications, steroid use, drug use, certain types of cancers, and thyroid disorders.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Male breast reduction surgery can involve the use of liposuction, surgical excision, or a combination of both. During your consultation, Dr. Imber will perform an examination of the breasts to determine which surgical approach is appropriate.

During the procedure, incisions will be made along the areolae or along the bottom of the breasts so that excess glandular tissue can be removed. The length of the incisions will be based on the severity of the gynecomastia. Any excess glandular tissue and loose skin are excised, and the incision is tightly sutured shut so that the chest has a flat and smooth appearance. Liposuction may be used during the process to remove any excess fat from the area.

Recovering from Male Breast Reduction Surgery

If surgical excision of the breast tissue is involved, the recovery process will take some time. The chest will feel sore for several days, but the pain should be minimal and can be managed with medication. Patients may need to wait a week or so before they are able to resume their normal activities. Exercise and other physically demanding activities should be avoided for longer and our nurses will review all recovery guidelines with you. Results should be noticeable right away and will continue to improve as swelling reduces.

The entire staff from the Front Desk to the medical estheticians make you feel comfortable and put you at ease. I tend to be a bit nervous about pain and this was PAIN FREE. They are happy to answer any questions that you have! My skin has never looked better and I have received so many compliments. I would recommend Youth Corridor Clinic to anyone that is looking to improve their skin!!!" - by S.K.

  • "I’ve been visiting the Youth Corridor every few weeks in attempts to rejuvenate my skin after years of sun damage. I can’t say enough good things about their “No-Peel Peel,” which I credit for saving my skin. I’ve also had a deeper chemical peel there and have been astounded at the results. Their office is so clean and the estheticians are so patient and knowledgeable. I’ve already sent many of my friends there who have also had similarly positive experiences." - by M.W.

  • "Dr. Imber has hands of gold. Everything he touches, he makes beautiful. Whether it’s an injection of a filler to a complete rhinoplasty, he takes his time, and always get the job done with expertise and precision. I’ve been to my share of physicians and I put Dr. Imber at the top of my list. His staff is compassionate to all of your needs, and they always anticipate the unexpected…a top notch office …all around… I would highly recommend Dr. Imber and his staff, thanks again!" - by L.M.

  • "He is very thorough, meticulous, detail oriented and you cannot negotiate services or anything with him. It’s his way or the highway. I had a lot of work done years ago long before plastic surgery was so common. My daughter went to him last year for lipo and he is exactly as thorough and precise as he was then. If you are a Botox junkie looking for quick fixes on the cheap, he probably won’t be right for you. His work is very subtle, understated, natural and undetectable." - by S.H.
