Enlarged male breasts can result from hormonal imbalance, weight gain, genetics, or the use of certain drugs or alcohol. Males with large breasts may lose confidence and self-esteem, and even avoid physical activities or social contact to hide their condition. When weight loss and exercise cannot address these issues, surgical intervention may be the answer. Men with large breasts can achieve more masculine chest contours with gynecomastia surgery. Dr. Gary F. Horn is a pioneer in male body contouring and has 25 years of experience sculpting attractive results for male patients. He can provide the personalized treatment you need in Paris, London, or Brussels, helping you to achieve the more masculine features you desire.

Gynecomastia surgery is a cosmetic procedure designed to reduce the size of large breasts in men. This surgical procedure is similar to breast reduction but is tailored to enhance the masculine contours of a man’s chest, providing an overall flatter and more toned appearance. If enlargement of the breasts is severe, the nipples may have stretched and the breasts may sag. In such cases, gynecomastia surgery can correct these conditions. This treatment can also help men who have lost a significant amount of weight and still struggle to achieve the more toned appearance they desire. In some cases, pectoral implants can also be placed to enhance the results of surgery.
Are You a Candidate?
Men who wish to enhance their masculine appearance and whose enlarged breasts cannot be reduced through alternative medical treatments, exercise, or weight loss, are good candidates for gynecomastia surgery. This procedure is typically only recommended for adults. While many boys may experience some extent of gynecomastia, these effects often disappear naturally once puberty and growth are complete. In order to undergo surgery, you should be at a stable weight, in good health, and not suffer from any illnesses or conditions that could seriously slow or compromise healing. You must also be willing to avoid alcohol and tobacco products before and after your procedure to improve healing.
To provide customized results, Dr. Horn will tailor the surgery to your unique needs. In some cases, liposuction alone can achieve significant results. For other patients, excision may also be necessary. Incisions can be placed around the nipple and along the chest to remove skin, glandular tissue, and fat. Once all excess tissues have been removed, Dr. Horn can reposition the nipple for the most aesthetic results. In some cases, he can remove some of the darker skin of the areola to reduce the size of your nipple as well.

Swelling and tenderness is common after the procedure. You should expect at least one to two weeks of downtime, but may be able to return to full activity within as few as six weeks. The final results of your surgery may take three to six months to appear, and you can expect your satisfaction to increase as time progresses. Although your scars will be permanent, they will fade and become less noticeable over time, allowing you to enjoy your new, more masculine physique.
