As a man, your physique can play a large role in how you feel about your self-image. Over-developed breast tissue can significantly impact how you perceive your manhood, but there are plastic surgery procedures for men that can help. Dr. Chiaramonte understands both the physical and psychological effects gynecomastia can have on a man, which is why we offer male breast reduction to our Maryland and Alexandria, Virginia patients.

What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is the male condition of over-developed breast tissue that creates abnormally large breasts. It's important to realize that gynecomastia is not simply a result of weight gain, but is a medical condition that can actually be caused by a number of other factors including:
- Genetic disorders
If you suffer from gynecomastia, it is highly likely that your male breasts will not respond to diet or exercise. Instead, as the rest of your body becomes toned, you may still experience an accumulation of stubborn, fatty tissue in your chest. With gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Chiaramonte can remove the excess tissue that neither diet nor exercise can eliminate.
Male Breast Reduction Procedure
For some men, gynecomastia surgery can require little more than a small incision and the use of liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue. If you have excessive glandular tissue, Dr. Chiaramonte may need to make a larger incision for the excess skin and tissue removal.
Generally after gynecomastia surgery you will need to avoid strenuous exercise for a period of several weeks and you will need to follow Dr. Chiaramonte's recovery guidelines to ensure proper healing.
The best way to determine what type of gynecomastia technique will be used and how it will impact your recovery is to address these concerns with Dr. Chiaramonte during your confidential consultation.
