Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, has treated hundreds of men with gynecomastia over the past 20 years with amazing results. He can successfully restore a man’s confidence by creating a masculine chest appearance through the removal of breast tissue or fat that is causing the enlarged breast. Gynecomastia often starts in puberty, and can be caused by hormonal imbalances, often at no fault of the patient. Other causes of gynecomastia include anabolic steroid use, excessive marijuana use, obesity, or as a side effect of other medications. This surgery involves reducing the size of the breast by either directly removing the gland through a small incision under the areola or by removing fat in the chest with liposuction (or a combination of both techniques). The procedure is done as an outpatient and most men are back to work within a few days.
"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

"Dr. John Williams has the lightest hands! I've been to him twice now. First time was a breast augmentation and literally back to work after the weekend of having surgery with no pain. Second time was a little mommy make over ( mini tummy tuck, lipo and i replaced implants for bigger) and I'm just shocked out how minimal my pain is. I was up and walking the moment i left the surgery center and even more once the anesthesia wore off. My husband keeps asking how i feel. I feel amazing! Not only does he have the lightest hands in the world he's also a perfectionist and seems to nail it every time with the look your trying to achieve. I recommend him to all my friends family and complete strangers who ask. I've experienced more pain with minor surgeries!"- F.D. / Yelp / Feb 16, 2019
"Tummy Tuck, Breast lift, Breast Augmentation - Dr. William's performed my tummy tuck, breast lift and breast augmentation in May. I am over the moon with my results! After loosing 100lbs I had stretched out skin on my stomach and boobs. Dr. William's was able to show me the results of my weight loss by removing the excess skin and fat and giving me happy boobs! From the first consultation to the post-op care, Dr. Williams and all of his staff has been nothing but encouraging, positive, and REALISTIC. I can not rave about all of them enough! Dr. William's, Adrianna, and Stephanie, thank you for the exceptional care! XOXO Makenzie"- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 05, 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, Dr. Williams will directly remove the enlarged breast gland through a small incision under the areola or perform liposuction to remove excess fat. For extreme cases, additional surgical consideration may be made such as a breast lift or nipple repositioning. 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 4 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.
