Male Breast Reduction

Enlarged or puffy nipples and full breasts can be embarrassing to live with as a man, whether you’re wearing a shirt or going shirtless. While many men and adolescents suffer from these concerns—sometimes from a medical condition called gynecomastia—most don’t talk about it. Dr. George Pope is an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who understands. He offers long-lasting relief through male breast reduction, also called gynecomastia surgery, at his Orlando, FL, practice.

What Is Gynecomastia?

The actual medical condition gynecomastia is usually caused by a hormone imbalance. It may resolve itself in some teens once puberty is complete. Often enlarged male breasts and areolas are a result of obesity, steroids, and certain medications.

What Is Male Breast Reduction or Gynecomastia Surgery?

Dr. Pope performs male breast reduction (gynecomastia surgery) to provide men and teenagers (who are at least 17) the following, life-changing benefits:

  • Creating firm, flat, masculine chest contours
  • Reducing enlarged or puffy areolas
  • Restoring confidence with or without a shirt

Because gynecomastia doesn’t always affect each breast equally, Dr. Pope can balance natural asymmetries during the surgery. Patients may also choose to address other areas such as “love handles” with liposuction during the same surgery.

How Is Male Breast Reduction Performed?

Dr. Pope usually performs male breast reduction as an outpatient procedure in a private surgical center in the same building as his Orlando, FL, office. Anesthesia is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. He uses the following techniques:

  • Liposuction is used when the enlargement is mainly due to excess fatty tissue.
  • Surgical excision removes firm, fibrous glandular tissue from behind the areola, reduces enlarged areolas, and tightens lax skin. Incisions are usually placed around the edge of the areola and occasionally along the lower chest contour.
  • A combination of excision and liposuction.

With any plastic surgery, discretion is important; this is especially true with male breast reduction. Dr. Pope takes care to make incisions as small and as inconspicuous as possible to minimize scarring.

I have been seeking for a plastic surgeon for about 2 months to help me to gain my confidence back and fix an issue from previous Liposuction. However I blame myself because I let myself go and gain over 45 pounds. grateful to my job I was able to travel to few places to find the plastic surgeon I was in California, Boston, Melbourne, Miami, and Orlando. All were very professional and knowledgeable. But I still was not sure cuz my previous lipo experience. My brother mentioned Dr. Pope ; so I set up a consultation , I have to say this from the 1st day his office team were professional, passionate, and Kind. The practice manager & surgery coordinator Lisa Sanzone Amazing lady, after few questions ; I meet Dr. Pope I explain my concerns and goals. Dr. Pope explain clearly the risk and advantages of my desire cosmetic surgery but once thing when you always looking for plastic surgeon is Honesty. Dr. Pope is extremely professional, experience, Knowledgeable but here is the main factor for my decision to choose him ; Dr. Pope is super HONEST, PASSIONATE AND KIND. I have been fortunate to meet many plastic surgeons before but He's by far the most kind. He listen, acknowledge your goals and concerns. 2 weeks ago 11/24/2020 I had Tummy tuck and liposuction. I'm beyond grateful to him, his medical and office, team everyone has the same high of level customer service but they all have kindness and that is very hard to find. I'm still recovering but it has been easy recover I was able to walk from the 2nd day Dr. Pope have been in each step of my recovery there. His anesthesiologist and the nurse surgery beyond my expectations. I'm so grateful to the overnight nurse in the medical center she went beyond and more for that I'll be always grateful to her. Sorry, I can go more and more how amazing Dr. Pope and his team but truly believe me. Thank you Dr. Pope, Lisa, the nurse in his office for their care and kindness all his team; you guys have left in me a remarkable impression. Happy Holidays I have become a loyal client.

Dr Pope is by far the most qualified and best surgeon (in not just Florida) but my opinion in the country. If you need surgery or you simply desire elective surgery there is no one I would trust more than Dr Pope. His nurses and staff are truly helpful and always there for you as well as Dr Pope! Questions and insecurities come with surgery and I was always given full attention and informed immediately. His work is remarkable and the BEST!!! In my opinion I give Dr Pope a 5 star rating as I have never experienced or witnessed such beautiful work and the best professional care! Forever GRATEFUL!

I love Dr pope he takes his time with you, listens and knows what he is talking about. He fixed my stomach where another Dr left hanging skin and did my eyelids, made a big difference. My daughter loves her breast augmentation. His staff is the best and Giuliana the facial girl is always so sweet and does the best facial. I look and feel so much better about myself since I’ve been going there. The facials made a big difference and others notice

I went to Dr. Pope around my 21st birthday after living with gynecomastia my whole life and was so embarrassed and self conscious about it that I never went outside without a shirt on, never went swimming and couldn't enjoy life. Dr. Pope did a amazing job with me and couldn't be more happier and so glad I went with Dr. Pope as my surgeon. I can finally go out and enjoy life due to Dr. Pope and his staff. Thank you very much Dr. Pope!

About a year ago I was involved in a pretty terrible motor vehicle accident and subsequently was sent to the emergency room. After I was stabilized and pretty much entirely conscious I was almost immediately faced with a big decision as to how I wanted to proceed my treatment. On one hand there was the ER doctor who seemed almost eager to have me up and out and was offering to stitch up my wounds, and on the other hand I had the opportunity to be treated by Dr Pope who was on call. After hearing that the ER doctor intended to remove some of my damaged skin I decided to wait for Dr Pope to see what his plan of action would be. Needless to say I made the right choice as Dr Pope not only saved all of my skin but significantly reduced the size of my inevitable scar in doing so. I continued treatment with Dr Pope and today can not be more happy I did as my scar is almost entirely unnoticeable and being that it is on my forehead I am forever grateful for his expertise and precision.

Phenomenal surgeon! I had gynecomastia since I was twelve and never took my shirt of in public. Even though I was in great shape, it still was bothersome for years. I had this done last year with Dr. Pope and he did a wonderful job. The staff members were very welcoming and answered all my questions. The general anesthesia made me feel comfortable and relaxed and I'm glad I choose that then localized. No complications, no infections and my chest looks so much better now. I went to the beach last weekend and felt great. I feel motivated to lift weights again now that my pecs can look like actual pecs. Any male that needs this procedure, see Dr. Pope! You won't regret your decision. The only regret I had was not getting this done sooner.

Dr Pope is professonial and a true artist. The office is very clean, well organized and supremely efficient in it's nature. My wife recently had a procedure done through the office and from start to finish she was treated very well with incredibly compassionate concern and care. I admire the way the Dr is sincerely invested in his patient as well as his candor and honesty. I believe that he is sincere and operates with integerity in his evaluations as well as his suggestions regarding the procedure my wife had done. The support staff is helpful, professional, and also operate with great integerity. I spent some time on the phone recently with his office manager, Dana as a follow up and we had a very nice conversation...which was what reminded me to get on here and review their business! Thank you for your awesome care and work Dr Pope and everyone else in the office! My wife, when she began looking for a surgeon, had planned to talk to 3 total offices before making her decision. She talked to Dr Pope and his office first and didn't bother going anywhere else...and that says it all.

I wish I had found Dr. Pope many years ago before another plastic surgeon botched my stomach up. My stomach looks great now thanks to Dr. Pope. His staff, office, surgical center are all fabulous. He is the most kind man and very easy to talk to. He is my plastic surgeon now and Im so happy I found him.

Is Gynecomastia Surgery Painful?

Some men experience minor soreness for the first few days after male breast reduction, but this discomfort is typically minor and temporary. Dr. Pope will advise you about any medication you may need during this time to keep you as comfortable as possible.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery Recovery like?

In most cases, recovery is quite short after male breast reduction; however, each person and each surgery is unique. It is normal to develop swelling and bruising that lasts approximately 2 to 3 weeks. Patients are usually are back at work in just a couple of days. Complete recovery may take a month or more, but patients are usually able to resume many normal activities during this time. It’s especially important to avoid sun exposure to the chest for the first 12 months to avoid causing the scars to darken as they are healing.

Visit our Resources page for more information.

How Long Will it Take to See My Male Breast Reduction Results?

Chest contours typically settle into their final shape within 3 months as swelling dissipates. It takes approximately 6 months for the incisions to fade to white.

How Much Does Male Breast Reduction or Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?

The cost of male breast reduction in the Orlando area depends on several factors, including the approach used. We will provide you with a personalized quote after your consultation.
