In Atlanta and throughout the U.S., the desired look of the male chest is broad and flat. Some men, unfortunately, struggle with a chest that may appear more feminine in nature. This condition is referred to as gynecomastia. While changes in lifestyle, including diet and exercise, can sometimes help flatten the chest, surgical intervention is often necessary. In this case, patients may turn to double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alan N. Larsen for male breast reduction. This procedure removes excess fat and breast tissue, helping to contour a man’s chest.
Dr. Larsen performs male breast reduction in Atlanta to specifically target the aesthetic needs of some men. Men who deal with excess breast tissue that gives the appearance of a feminine chest may turn to this surgery as the only means for removing the tissue.
Removing the surplus breast tissue, as well as a conservative amount of fat in some cases can lead to improved self-confidence for many men. Additionally, with a new outlook and more masculine chest, patients may feel more comfortable in tight-fitting clothing or even going shirtless at the beach or poolside.

Preparing for Male Breast Reduction
Male breast reduction is performed when the patient is under a local anesthetic with sedation. This means you will sleep through the procedure. Dr. Larsen will perform an incision around the nipple, allowing access to the tissue and fat in the chest area. Through this unique vantage point, he can remove the excess breast tissue with a scalpel.
Using a thin tube called a cannula, he may also use liposuction techniques to remove surplus pockets of fat that add to the undesired appearance of the chest. Once the proper contours are attained, Dr. Larsen will close the incisions with sutures and apply a compression garment around the chest.
After Male Breast Reduction
When your gynecomastia treatment is complete, you will need a ride and help at home for a day or two. You will need to refrain from exercise for several weeks as you heal, but you will be expected to walk shortly after surgery.
You will need to wear the compression garment for a few weeks, as it will support the new contours of your chest and ensure proper healing. Expect some swelling and discomfort following male breast reduction. To help you manage this discomfort, Dr. Larsen may prescribe medication.
After you have fully healed and swelling has dissipated, your chest will likely appear firmer and broader. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, the changes should be long lasting.
