New Jersey Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Paramus Location in Bergen County, NJ
WHAT IS A MALE BREAST REDUCTION?
Gynecomastia, or enlargement of the male breast, affects 40-60% of men, and can be caused by medications, hormonal imbalance, genetics, or unknown factors. While many people may not have heard of this condition, abnormal breast tissue development is surprisingly common and very treatable. Male breast reduction methods provided by top board certified New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Zubowski at our Bergen county center include the removal of excess glandular tissue, liposuction or a combination of excision and liposuction.
You may choose to undergo gynecomastia surgery for several reasons. It may be to improve your overall body proportions, you may be experiencing psychological discomfort and are embarrassed by overly large breasts, or you may want to increase your self-confidence. Dr. Zubowski has years of relevant surgical experience providing gynecomastia treatment for men of all ages who wish to improve the appearance of their breasts. During a detailed evaluation, Dr. Zubowski will determine which male breast reduction treatment is right for you based on the distribution and quantity of glandular and fatty tissue.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR MALE BREAST REDUCTION?
The ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery are men 18 years or older, in good health, physically and emotionally, and have firm, elastic skin that will easily lend to reshaping their body’s new contours. If your skin quality is good, but you have predominantly fatty or diffusely glandular breasts, Dr. Zubowski may choose to treat you with ultrasonic liposuction. The goal of ultrasonic liposuction is to remove a sufficient amount of breast tissue to minimize pain and recurrence, yet allow for a normal post-operative breast appearance. If there is a focally dense area of breast tissue behind the areola, Dr. Zubowski will make a direct surgical excision with a small incision in the lower half of the areola. If there is also a significant amount of skin, then he will also perform skin removal to shape and tighten the breast.
HOW MUCH IS GYNOCOMASTIA SURGERY?
We understand that cost is always a consideration in elective surgery and gynecomastia surgery cost varies, depending on your individual needs to be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Zubowski. Moreover, what type of anesthesia you choose, the facility fee and post-operative care will each influence the total male breast reduction cost and will be discussed during your consultation. However, the typical cost of gynecomastia surgery is in the $6000 price range.
We also understand this type of treatment is as much an art as a science, that a male breast reduction procedure goes beyond the cost of surgery and that your final outcome will be affected more by the plastic surgeon than the procedure itself. Dr. Zubowski is widely recognized as a leading board certified plastic surgeon serving the Bergen County, New Jersey area. Dr. Zubowski is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with over two decades of surgical experience in male breast reduction surgery. Your gynecomastia surgery will be performed with the most appropriate techniques to achieve your goals.
