What is Gynecomastia Surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction, is a surgical technique used to eliminate fatty tissue from the chest. Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by fatty tissue building up in the chest, which is typically resistant to diet and exercise efforts. For most patients, surgery is the quickest and most effective option. Gynecomastia surgery will remove excess tissue to produce a more sculpted, masculine appearance in the chest. The Peer Group is proud to offer this treatment to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals. To explore the results we have helped previous patients achieve, check out our gynecomastia before and after surgery pictures.

How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?
The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique treatment goals and the specific approach we take to treatment. During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the gynecomastia surgery technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment. You can learn more about the cost of your treatment and your payment options by visiting our financing page.
What is the Gynecomastia Surgery Procedure Like?
The gynecomastia surgery procedure will vary depending on your treatment goals and the treatment plan we develop during your consultation. These treatments will begin with delivering anesthesia, ensuring you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. For the surgery, incisions are usually made on the outside, lower corners of the chest. While incisions are typically small, this location makes any scarring as inconspicuous as possible. Through these incisions, excess tissue is removed to reshape and sculpt the chest. After these steps are complete, the incisions are sealed and the treatment is complete.
What is the Gynecomastia Surgery Recovery Like?
The recovery process for gynecomastia surgery will vary depending on the treatment method used. Most patients experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for a few weeks after their treatment. You may need to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery. We also recommend patients abstain from any exercise or heavy lifting for at least six weeks after treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Gynecomastia Surgery?
The results from your gynecomastia surgery are visible soon after treatment, and will last for many years to come. However, gynecomastia cannot prevent changes in the chest that might occur in the future due to weight gain. We encourage patients to maintain healthy lifestyle habits in order to make their results last as long as possible.
