Lose the embarrassment. Gain self-confidence.
Men are choosing plastic surgery to improve their appearance and feel more self-confident. Male breast overdevelopment, known medically as “gynecomastia,” is very common. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of all men to some degree. If you are one of the many men who feels self-conscious about the appearance of their chests, breast reduction surgery at Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center can help you.
A man’s breasts can gain in size with weight gain, age or with the genetic tendency to do so. It often occurs during the teen years when the teenager can feel very self conscious about it or as an older man with some weight gain and loss of muscle tone. The breast can appear prominent and unnatural for a man. Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia, can restore a more toned look with less fullness in the breast area. Male breast reduction is one of the more common procedures for men.

Dr. Gray’s Scarless Breast Reduction procedure for both women and for men allows them to shed the painful symptoms of over sized breast without the extensive scarring of the older method.
Dr. Heidi Harrington, also at Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center, is also highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who performs the traditional method. You can count on either surgeon for the highest level of skill and care available.
How Scarless Breast Reduction is Performed
To firm and flatten the contour of your chest, Dr. Gray uses liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue. Scarless breast reduction is a fairly easy procedure. Drs. Gray makes a small incision, about a quarter of an inch long, and inserts a surgical tube called a cannula into your chest. He moves this tube back and forth through the layers of fat to break them up and suction out the fat. When the fat is gone, your skin will naturally shrink back to fit your new, flatter chest. Recovery time is rapid and men are able to get back to their normal schedule with a few days. Many enjoy the brief time off.
