Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, treats all of his patients with respect and has a trusted record in using male breast reduction surgery. Dr. Williams uses the surgery to successfully restore men’s confidence by creating a masculine chest appearance with his cutting-edge plastic surgery techniques. Gynecomastia is one of the three most common conditions affecting the male appearance with excessive breast tissue. It often starts in puberty, and can be caused by hormonal imbalances, often at no fault of the patient. This surgery involves reducing the size of the breast, flattening, and tightening the skin, and enhancing the contours of the chest. Depending on the specific needs of the patient, liposuction may be used by Dr. Williams to remove the fat around the breast to reduce the size. In some cases, a mastectomy will be the recommended course of treatment to remove the breast gland tissue.
"Words can not express how truly happy I am with my whole experience! I have wanted this surgery for years, but never thought I would actually voluntarily have someone cut me open. Trust in someone to do that is HUGE! Dr. Williams put me at ease immediately. After meeting and speaking with Dr. Williams I knew I was in good hands! He explained the whole process and everything I should expect (good and bad). If I had known about him before I wouldn’t have waited so long! His whole staff is fantastic, especially Adriana! Thank you for EVERYTHING! It’s been a month, I know I have a long way to go till I’m all healed, but I am already so very happy with the results! If you are looking for a great surgeon look no further!"- K.L. / Google / Sep 22, 2018
"I went to Dr. Williams for a dermal filler and Botox injections. He injected my lips and I have been obsessed with the results! For the first time, I'm not self conscious having pictures taken of me due to not being happy with my lips. My sister's have both had Botox injections with him also with amazing results. They recommended him to me. One of my sister's also had a mommy makeover with him after massive weightloss and was featured in a famous book that was just published at Barnes and Nobles with her results. It’s really cool! The procedures with Dr. Williams changed her entire life! It melts my heart seeing her finally post pictures of herself, dressing up for Halloween, doing things she never did before surgery. I plan on going to Dr. Williams for a tummy tuck, monsplasty, and breast augmentation myself ASAP and I can't wait because I’ve been dying to have that for myself too for years."- C.D. / Google / Sep 28, 2018

"Dr. Williams and his staff are incredible! My husband and I went in for my first visit and had every question answered with complete transparency. We instantly felt confident that this would be my surgeon. No rushing us into a deposit or " special price" for a short time bologna. It took me 20 years to finally make myself complete and I couldn't be more pleased. I gladly agreed to post my before and after pictures Feb. 2018 and June 2018...beautiful work Dr. Williams and thank you so very much. Brian and I love the new me!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 18, 2018
Men who are self-conscious because of larger than normal breasts are candidates for this surgery. Our doctor will provide a thorough assessment to establish if gynecomastia is the condition causing the enlargement. Men should be at or near a healthy weight and have relatively good skin tone. If the excessive breast tissue has stretched the skin, a skin tightening technique will be incorporated during the surgery.
You may be a good candidate for male breast reduction if:
- you are healthy and of relatively normal weight
- medications or alternative medical treatments cannot correct your condition
- you have realistic expectations
- you are bothered by the size of your breasts
Dr. Williams will discuss expected outcomes and can determine which procedure will produce the best results during your initial consultation.
What to Expect
During surgery, our surgeon will use liposuction to remove excess breast tissue an will trim away any skin that shows sagging. In most cases, the incision is made around the areola, which helps minimize scarring. For extreme cases, additional surgical consideration may be made such as a lift, nipple repositioning or skin grafting. It is normal to have bruising and swelling around the chest area for the first couple of weeks. A compression garment must be worn for about 2 weeks to help with reshaping and healing. Men who suffer from gynecomastia often want to begin lifting weights to help accentuate the overall outcome. This is encouraged, but must be avoided for at least 6-8 weeks or until clearance has been given by our staff.
