Male breast reduction is not something that often comes up in conversation, but it is a very important plastic surgery procedure for Dr. Cash. “Men with enlarged breasts often come to me after years of embarrassment and teasing due to a condition called gynecomastia. At my Houston practice, helping these men to feel better about themselves is one of the most rewarding things I do,” says Dr. Cash.
Male breast reduction helps Houston men to have the firmer, flatter, more masculine chest they have always wanted. “My patients tell me that they are thrilled to be able to finally take their shirt off at the pool or to wear shirts that fit a little more snugly,” adds Dr. Cash. “For most men, this is an emotional as well as a physical transformation.”

Male breast reduction restores a firm, flat chest contour for men with enlarged breasts. The extent of the surgery depends on the degree of correction needed. If the main cause of the excess volume is fat, Dr. Cash may be able to correct the problem with liposuction. To remove fibrous glandular tissue, she uses a periareolar incision, which runs along the border of the darker skin surrounding the nipple. Through this incision, she can remove excess breast tissue, and in some cases reduce and reposition the nipple. Occasionally, such as in cases of massive weight loss, sagging skin must be removed, which may require additional incisions. Male breast reduction can also be combined with a tummy tuck for men who also want to flatten their abdomen.

How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost in Houston, Texas?
The cost for male breast reduction for gynecomastia depends on the specifics of the surgery and patient needs. Dr. Cash provides a specific price quote during the consultation for patients to take home.
Male breast reduction surgery is performed to remove excess fat, tissue, and in some cases skin in men with enlarged breasts – a condition called gynecomastia. Some men have suffered from gynecomastia since puberty, while others develop the condition as a result of weight fluctuations or other causes. Feminine looking breasts in men can cause significant embarrassment and self-consciousness, and this surgery is often life-changing for Dr. Cash’s patients. The surgery is not recommended for young men whose bodies may still be growing.
Male Breast Reduction Procedure & Recovery
Since male breast reduction procedures vary in extent, the length of the surgery and recovery also vary. Typically, the procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately 2 hours. Pain medication will help you to manage the discomfort you will feel for the first few days following surgery.
You will be encouraged to walk around on the same day of your procedure, but you should take it easy and rest for a few days. You will probably wear a support garment for a few weeks following your procedure to help with comfort and healing. You should be able to return to light activities and work in approximately 5 to 7 days, but no strenuous exercise for 3 to 4 weeks. Although you will feel fairly “back to normal” in about 6 weeks, your scars will continue to fade over several months to a year.
