Male Breast Reduction
The development of breasts in men — a condition called gynecomastia — can be frustrating and embarrassing. It affects millions of men of all ages. Fortunately, gynecomastia is easily treated by male breast reduction. Here in Northbrook, Illinois, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Sisco can help you restore a masculine look to your chest.
You’ll begin with a private consultation with Dr. Sisco. During this appointment, you work together to review your medical history, as well as any lifestyle factors that may contribute to the development of gynecomastia. Dr. Sisco examines your chest, explains the surgical process to you, and helps you determine if you’re a good candidate.

Depending on the extent of your surgery, Dr. Sisco may place you under general anesthesia or simply use a local anesthetic with sedation. In some cases, he may use only liposuction to create the desired result. More advanced cases may require excision of the mammary gland. In either case, Dr. Sisco uses small incisions, which heal with discreet scars.
After your outpatient surgery is complete, you can return home to rest. Most male breast reduction patients take less than a week to recuperate at home before returning to work and light activity. You’ll need to wear a bandage, but it is well concealed beneath your clothes. Adhering to good diet and exercise habits is the best way to make the results of your male breast reduction permanent.Back to Top
