Losing a massive amount of weight is a great accomplishment— not only are you doing wonders for your overall health but for your appearance as well. If you are a male who recently lost a bunch of weight but have noticed that you still have excess amounts of breast tissue and fat, then you might be the perfect candidate for gynecomastia.

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a male breast reduction surgery that is used in order to get rid of the excess fat and tissues in the breast area which can cause you to look like you have female breasts. During the procedure, Dr. David K. Funt will likely go in through the nipple area in order to eliminate any sign of visible scarring after recovery. Once he has made an incision, he will then remove any excess fat and tissue that has accumulated— leaving you with a flat looking chest.

What is recovery like?

Directly after your male breast reduction surgery, you can expect to have a degree of swelling, bruising, and a little bit of pain. Swelling should subside around a week's time but the bruising might take a few weeks to ultimately go away. During recovery, you will also be forbidden from doing things like heavy lifting or working out— this will prevent against any chance that you could tear open the incision site or that you could cause additional strain on your chest area.

Is there scarring?

As a male, especially, it can be embarrassing to talk to your friends and family about getting male breast reduction surgery. However, by explaining to them that it is a normal process— especially for individuals who have recently lost a bunch of weight— you can help to better explain the normalcy of the entire procedure. And, with minimal to no visible scarring, you won’t have to worry about days spent at the beach or pool with friends without having your shirt on.

Gynecomastia is a great surgery for males who have recently lost weight but still have extra breast fat and tissue. If you are a male who has breasts and would like to get some sort of relief, contact Dr. David K. Funt today!
