What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia, sometimes referred to as "man boobs," is a medical condition that results in the development of enlarged breast tissue in men. While it is a benign condition, it can be a source of self-consciousness and emotional discomfort. Gynecomastia can occur either unilaterally (affecting one breast) or bilaterally (affecting both), and its severity varies from person to person.

What causes Gynecomastia?

The causes of gynecomastia are diverse, including: 

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Certain medications
  • Medical conditions
  • Obesity
  • Genetic factors

Hormonal imbalances, often resulting from a decrease in testosterone compared to estrogen, are a common trigger for this condition. Dr. Garramone can provide more information on these processes during the private consultation. 

How is Gynecomastia treated?

Gynecomastia can be effectively treated through various methods, including liposuction, excision surgery, or a combination of both. Liposuction involves removing excess fat deposits from the breast area, while excision surgery addresses glandular tissue. The specific approach taken to treatment ultimately depends on the individual's unique condition and goals.

What are the benefits?

Gynecomastia treatments come with both physical and psychological benefits. Some of these include:

  • Can help men regain a more masculine chest appearance, boosting self-esteem
  • Eliminates excess breast tissue, allowing patients to feel more confident and comfortable in their bodies
  • Leads to improved physical comfort, especially when engaging in physical activities
  • Patients can wear the clothing they desire without feeling self-conscious

Who is a candidate?

Ideal candidates for gynecomastia treatment are patients who:

  • Have been diagnosed with gynecomastia
  • Are in good general health
  • Maintain realistic expectations regarding the outcomes of the procedure
  • Understand the procedure and its associated risks

A consultation with a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Garramone will help determine your candidacy. This meeting provides patients with the opportunity to discuss their unique concerns and aesthetic goals, allowing Dr. Garramone to create a personalized treatment plan that is in line with your desired outcome.

What does the procedure entail?

Gynecomastia treatment typically involves these steps:


Depending on the details of the procedure, patients will receive either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. This ensures that the patient is comfortable throughout the treatment process.


Excess fat deposits are removed via liposuction from the breast area, resulting in a more contoured chest.

Glandular tissue removal

If glandular tissue needs to be addressed, excision surgery is performed to eliminate the excess tissue, creating a flatter chest.

Closing the Incisions

Incisions are carefully closed with sutures, minimizing scarring.

What is the recovery process like?

Recovery after gynecomastia treatment typically involves:

Immediate Post-op: Patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which can be easily mitigated using prescribed pain medications.

Initial Recovery: Most individuals can return to light activities and work within a week or two, with full recovery achieved over several weeks.
Long-term Recovery: Final results may take some time to fully manifest, and it's essential to follow post-operative instructions diligently.
