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 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.

All of these post I have read are wonderful, but most went because they wanted to look better, I went because I had cancer and at this point I was scared to death and not knowing what to even think about what was going to happen to me. I will tell you from the moment I met Dr Pope I knew I was in good hands, he was very kind and made me feel at ease, the surgery went great, it went right on time, it was more than what we had all thought it might be and I am so thankful that I was with this wonderful man, If this ever happens to me again I just pray that Doctor Pope is there with me, thank you so much for all your kindness, God bless you always.

Dr. Pope has the best philosophy.. "Do just enough to make you look like you have had a good night's sleep. Do a little now and a little more later." I can't tell you how many times I have seen patients who look so phony. Wake up Hollywood !!! You are on the wrong track! Dr. Pope does not transform you into someone you are not, he takes you back to a younger you. If you are considering surgery, Dr. Pope is the best! If you are not from the area, the travel is worth your effort! Beverly Graham

It was a blessing when we found Dr George Pope to perform a face lift for me. The surgery was extremely successful and even after a few years my face still has a youthful appearance. Dr. Pope is the kindest and most caring doctor. He is also a genius at his craft. I had the best of care at the hospital and Dr Pope was present and accessible even during his off hours. With any concern we were able to talk to him and have immediate resolutions. We were so pleased with the results of my surgery that we asked Dr Pope to perform a full body lift on our daughter after extreme weight loss. Dr Pope performed surgery on our daughter for several hours. Because her surgery was so extensive, Dr Pope postponed his vacation to be at Michelle's bedside. We have never experienced such care before or since that time. I can't express enough our gratitude to Dr Pope. He is an amazing physician.

If you are looking for a doctor that listens to your needs, wants and concerns and one that gives patients honest feedback, Dr Pope is your doctor. I have been using Dr Pope for the past three plus years and have been extremely satisfied with all of his recommendations. The staff at his office is friendly and outgoing... They always make me feel comfortable and special. I'm sure that if you schedule an appointment for a consultation, you too will see how professional this office is operated.

Dr. Pope is by far the best plastic surgeon I've seen. His staff is friendly and professional. The services I have received are top quality. His injector is also incredibly good and fixed a botched job I had done with another surgeon. I would highly recommend him.

I am not one to write reviews for anything but I felt inclined to take the time to share my experience that ive had with Dr. Pope and wonderful staff. I came in for Otoplasty surgery (ear pinning) which is something I have planned on doing for a long time. I was in a rush to get it done before the weddings that I have coming up. Lisa the office manager (I think) was able to get me onto the table the day after the consult! Wow. I have had many surgeries in my life unfortunately but this is one I looked forward to. Dr. Pope was very thorough and made me feel more confident about what he was going to do. I have tried to imagine what my ears would look like if they didnt stick out for years but never could have imagined they would look this good. I am confused because I cant even see any scars behind my ears... even with a handheld mirror! Where did he hide them? My friends cant see them either... How did he do it?! Dr. Pope is amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their look in any way, shape, or form. Worth every penny.

I have been seeing dr. Pope for over ten years. Between his procedures and the aestheticians procedures I look better than ever. My friends say I am getting younger while they are getting older. Everyone should be having DermaFrac treatments to regain or maintain their youthful look.

From the time I made the appointment to when I had the surgery to my after care this practice is first class. The office is clean and the staff is very friendly. I can't say enough about Lisa, she scheduled my appointment, sat with me after the consultation and even talked through my fears the next day on the phone. The day of my surgery she stayed with me and waited until 7:30 that night until I woke up, not because she had to but because she said she would. She is awesome and a definite asset to that practice! Dr. Pope exceeded my expectation, I had a mini lift about 7 years ago and had some scars around my eyes and ears that had always bothered me, I am 12 days post op and I can't see them, not even from the new stitches he put in. He did a septoplasty on me and I was breathing better when I woke up. I am very pleased and look forward to seeing the end results as the months go by.

I met Dr.Pope when he was on call at the children's hospital in Orlando. He came within 30 minutes to help my then 10 year daughter who fell off her bike and split her face open. 1 year later you can not see where she fell! He was awesome so awesome my husband suggest I speak to him about correcting a horrible breast reduction I had from a New York City doctor 18 years ago. Lisa was so kind and patient with me during the scheduling process as well as the rest of the staff. 4 weeks later after my surgery and you can see the major improvement ! Dr Pope was available on weekends during my first week of recovery, even Sunday! What doctor does the? The staff has always been nice and respectful. I highly recommend Dr. Pope for your cosmetic needs!! You will not find a nicer office, I promise you!

I have been going to Dr. Pope for over 20 years and he is the most professional, kind and talented doctor that I have ever met. His patients are his number one priority. His office staff were amazing and I felt like I was being taken care of by family. I recently had a ten (10) hour procedure that entailed a breast argumentation, neck lift, liposuction, rhinoplasty and upper eye lift. It was an intense 10 hours surgery but I felt safe and well taken care of. Four (4) weeks later I'm very happy with the results. Dr. Pope is amazing and I would recommend him & his staff to anyone and everyone!!

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.
