Gynecomastia is a common yet highly sensitive medical condition experienced by men. In this condition, male patients develop excess, unwanted breast tissue that gives their chest a feminine appearance. Gynecomastia can arise in puberty for patients, but it can also appear spontaneously in adulthood. No matter what age our patients are diagnosed with this condition, it can be physically uncomfortable and emotionally challenging to deal with. Gynecomastia can cause our patients to feel shame and low self-esteem and experience a lower quality of life.

Gynecomastia surgery in Scottsdale, performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ross Stutman, is designed to remove unwanted and excess breast tissue in our male patients permanently. It can help our male patients be comfortable and confident in their bodies for the rest of their lives.

What Is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is a surgical procedure designed to permanently remove excess and unwanted breast tissue mass to masculinize the appearance of the chest. Formally known as a reduction mammoplasty, gynecomastia surgery safely and strategically removes unwanted breast skin, fat, and tissue. Dr. Stutman takes care to ensure the chest looks more masculine following the procedure by further shaping and contouring for a more athletic appearance.

Do I Need Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is ideal for our male patients who experience:

  • Poor quality of life
  • Excess, unwanted breast tissue
  • Discomfort wearing certain clothes
  • Medically diagnosed gynecomastia
  • A chest that looks and feels feminine
  • Hesitancy in social and romantic situations
  • Pain and inability to complete physical activities

All these can lead to feelings of shame, low self-confidence, and low self-esteem. Gynecomastia surgery in Scottsdale could help boost your physical and emotional comfort.

Your Gynecomastia Surgery Procedure

At your initial consultation, you and Dr. Stutman will design the ideal surgical strategy for your needs. You will receive personalized directions to ensure a smooth recovery before your gynecomastia procedure.

During gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Stutman makes precise incisions in the breast tissue to remove excess tissue, skin, and fat from the breasts. The goal is to masculinize the appearance of your chest. The exact process will be outlined during your initial consultation and will be based on your needs.

It is natural to be concerned about scarring. While we cannot guarantee there will not be any resultant scarring, Dr. Stutman will do his best to ensure that incisions are carefully concealed within the chest tissue and that any resulting scarring from gynecomastia surgery in Scottsdale is minimal.

Recovery From Your Gynecomastia Reduction

For the first few weeks following your gynecomastia treatment, we recommend that you avoid lifting your arms or working your chest muscles while you heal. You should avoid working out, going to the gym, or partaking in vigorous exercise of any kind. You will need to rest as you heal from your procedure. Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments as directed.

When you have recovered from your procedure, it is essential that you follow a healthy diet and lifestyle. We may also recommend lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, to help you achieve optimal results.
