Benefits of Male Breast Reduction Surgery in New York
Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction surgery, can help men in the NYC area minimize the appearance of overdeveloped breasts, a condition called gynecomastia. Though common, gynecomastia can make men feel so self-conscious about their "man boobs" that they feel reluctant to remove their shirt in public—or in private. According to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh, there is no "one size fits all" gynecomastia surgery. Some men simply have excess fat deposits in the breast area, so HydraSolve® liposuction or nonsurgical UltraShape® alone can resolve their problem. Other men, however, may also have sagging skin, fibrous breast tissue, or a large nipple diameter, so they require gynecomastia surgery to remove the excess tissue and reveal a flatter, firmer, and more masculine chest.
Dr. Alizadeh understands that men want to feel confident about their appearance, and they often take great pride in their physical fitness and physique. He also understand the extremely sensitive nature of this condition, so if you choose to schedule a consultation for gynecomastia surgery, he and his entire staff guarantee complete discretion and confidentiality. According to HIPAA laws, no physician can share your medical information without your consent, so you will have total control over who knows about your procedure.

After many years of performing gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Alizadeh has developed a specialized technique, called NaturaMale™ Gynecomastia Surgery, to achieve superior results. He performs the procedure via minimal-access sites to help hide any scars in the natural contours around the areola, or nipple. The goal is for patients to feel comfortable in a tight shirt or even bare chested without showing any visible signs of surgery. Most patients begin with liposuction to remove fatty deposits in the chest area. Dr. Alizadeh prefers HydraSolve®, which is approved by the FDA for gentle, atraumatic liposuction. It uses a gentle wave of warm water to break up fat cells, which are then carefully suctioned from the body.
If the patient has good skin tone and elasticity, the breast and chest tissue gradually tightens and firms on its own following liposuction. If it does not, or if there is an excess of loose or sagging breast skin, possibly causing the nipple to face downward, Dr. Alizadeh will directly excise any redundant skin. At this time he may also reduce the size of the nipple, creating the incision directly around the border of the areola so that it is inconspicuous once healed. If a patient has fibrous breast tissue, often located directly under the nipple, Dr. Alizadeh will also surgically remove it following liposuction.
For the first three to seven days following gynecomastia surgery, you will wear a compression garment and be instructed to rest completely. Dr. Alizadeh and his staff will give you complete pre- and after-care instructions prior to surgery so that you are well prepared for your recovery phase. Swelling and bruising are normal after surgery, but should resolve completely in two to three weeks. Most patients continue to see improvement from their procedure for up to one year.
