Gynecomastia surgery can give you a smoother, more masculine chest appearance.

The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, Dr. Robert Shenker

If you have gynecomastia, you’re not alone. Our clinic is seeing an increasing number of men considering gynecomastia surgery and requesting assistance with achieving a smoother, more masculine chest appearance. When you visit us for a consultation for gynecomastia surgery, also called male breast reduction, in Waterloo, ON, we will discuss and customize a surgical plan that’s right for you.

Gynecomastia is generally caused by a combination of fatty tissue lying on top of the pectoralis major muscle and the presence of dense breast tissue behind the nipple. It is usually not a serious medical condition, but many men living with gynecomastia find their breast shape to be a source of social embarrassment and frustration.

Surgery is often the only solution for someone seeking a male breast reduction the results are permanent and allow you to embrace a new beginning. If your gynecomastia is largely caused by excess fatty tissue, we can remove the excess fat using liposuctiona surgical procedure that uses a thin hollow tube to precisely suction away the excess fat. If your gynecomastia is more glandular, we will discuss excision to restore your chest to a more masculine shape. We are here to answer any questions or concerns you have to make sure you are fully informed, ready, and confident about your gynecomastia removal. You also can review Dr. Shenker’s Gynecomastia Q&A blog post.

The future is bright. The recovery time for gynecomastia removal is minimal; many patients resume light normal activities of daily living within one to two days after surgery. After three to six weeks, exercise and more physically demanding activities can begin again. Once you have had gynecomastia removal, you will most likely not need additional treatments—you are free to enjoy the long-lasting results.
