Male Breast Reduction
Imagine taking off your shirt on a hot summer day without worrying about how you look. If you are a man with overly developed breasts—a condition known as gynecomastia—this may sound too good to be true. But it can be a reality through male breast reduction in Indiana. Men from Munster, Crown Point, and surrounding communities choose board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rebecca Garza to restore a flat, firm chest. Patients enjoy wearing what they want, playing sports, and engaging in any activity with confidence.

Talking It Over
During your consultation with Dr. Garza, you can discuss your goals and concerns with complete confidentiality. She will encourage you to ask questions and describe all of your options for surgery, as well as possible outcomes.
Dr. Garza performs male breast reduction as an outpatient procedure. You can return home the same day, but you will need someone to drive you and take care of you for a day or two. You will be under general anesthesia for the procedure, so you will sleep through your surgery.
This procedure surgically removes glandular tissue and sometimes excess fat from the chest often times using liposuction as well. Some cases also call for excess skin removal. Dr. Garza typically makes an incision around the areola (the darker skin around the nipple) for scars that are practically invisible. The surgery usually lasts 1 to 2 hours.

A Reputation Built on Results
After Your Male Breast Reduction Procedure
After surgery, your surgeon closes the incisions with sutures and surgical tape. Your chest will be bandaged for support. We provide detailed post-surgical instructions. Any stitches will be removed after a few days.
Recovery lasts between 1 and 3 weeks, depending on the extent of your surgery. You will be sore and swollen for a few days, and Dr. Garza can prescribe medication to manage any discomfort. You may experience some temporary bruising.
You can resume light activities after a few days and strenuous activity in 1 to 2 weeks, depending on how sore you feel. You should limit direct sun exposure for several months to avoid permanently discoloring the scars.Back to Top
