Who is a good Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

Plastic Surgeon serving Lutherville Timonium, Baltimore & Columbia areas of Maryland

Many men experience a condition known as gynecomastia, in which the male breast tissue becomes enlarged, leading to the appearance of male breasts. This condition is not all that uncommon among American males, but it can be devastating to your feelings of masculinity and your confidence. Fortunately, there is a male breast reduction procedure that can restore a manly chest.

You may be a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery if:

  • You are unhappy with enlarged male breast tissue.
  • One or both sides of your chest has enlarged tissue.
  • Your chest appearance causes you embarrassment and low self-esteem.
  • You want to restore your self-confidence.

Depending on whether you have excess fat, skin or glandular tissue, or all three combined, Dr. Basner may recommend removing the excess tissue with liposuction or with an excision technique. He has extensive experience and can determine which technique will be most effective in your case.

If you live in or around Baltimore or Columbia and are experiencing gynecomastia, please contact The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Basner.
