Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, has treated hundreds of men with gynecomastia over the past 20 years with amazing results. Thus, 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. Other causes of gynecomastia include anabolic steroid use, excessive marijuana use, obesity, or side effects of certain medications. Male breast reduction 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 so 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!

Men who are self-conscious because of larger than normal breasts are candidates for this surgery. Dr. Williams 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 within a normal weight range
- 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, however must be avoided for at least 6-8 weeks or until clearance has been given by our staff.
