About Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is the medical word used for breasts in men that are overly large. It is a condition that can produce a female-like chest look due to the increase of growing breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is due to an underlying hormonal problem. This condition can also be the cause of certain prescription drugs and medications, steroids, weight gain, or genetics. Adolescent young men and adult men with this issue often feel self-conscious, most commonly in circumstances where the chest is exposed such as by the pool or in the gym. Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle offers surgical breast reduction for men who have gynecomastia. This surgery has a positive success rate. It is known as one of the more popular cosmetic treatments for men at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center.

Ideal Candidates

This type of breast reduction is a procedure for men with overly sized breasts that cannot be treated with medications or diet. If you feel bothered by the size and shape of your chest, and are healthy and at a good weight, you may benefit from male breast reduction surgery by Dr. Lyle at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center. Adolescent teens may also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, an additional procedure may be needed later during adulthood if excess breast tissue continues to develop. During your first appointment with Dr. Lyle, he will help you plan your treatment and discuss the chances of moving forward with surgery to repair the condition.

Surgical Technique

A form of liposuction is generally used during male breast reduction surgery. While using general anesthesia, liposuction is utilized to remove excess fat tissue from the chest wall. Next, any lax skin will be carefully trimmed away to create a taut appearance, and then the nipple area and surrounding areola will be placed into a proportionate position. In most cases, this treatment strategy requires a small incision in proximity to where the glandular tissue has formed. Once the fat and loose skin have been appropriately handled, Dr. Lyle will pull together the existing skin.

What To Expect

At the conclusion of gynecomastia treatment, your chest will be supported with a medical garment to help control swelling, bleeding, and bruising. In advanced cases that utilized a more complex approach, a drainage tube may be properly positioned to assist with fluid buildup. The results following this procedure are immediately visible and most patients are extremely excited with the physical transformation. The incisions made during surgery need time to heal and scarring is usually barely seen. You can get medical clearance from Dr. Lyle to incorporate exercise and strength training, which will help accentuate the surgical results.

I am so grateful for Dr. Lyle and his staff. He has done several procedures on me that turned out wonderful and made me more confidant. My first procedure was extra fat and skin removal from my thighs that gave me the confidence to wear my skinny jeans. In December I received a brachioplasty and my results were amazing! The third procedure was a mini tummy tuck which was a revision from a tummy tuck I received from another practice that I definitely was not happy with. I had confidence that Dr. Lyle would fix this issue and I was 100 percent correct. Dr, Lyle and his staff are very professional as well as warm and welcoming. Thank you Dr. Lyle for giving me a body that I am estatic about and the confidence to wear anything that I want. I recommend Dr. Lyle 110 percent. He is amazing. I also want to add that all of my procedures were done under local anesthesia and I was comfortable through out the procedures! Thank you Dr. Lyle and your staff for giving me a new take on life and living!

You know it’s going to be a good week when you start your Monday morning by receiving Botox injections from Stephanie!! She has been doing my Botox for almost 10 years now, and she continues to ‘wow me’ with her knowledge, skills and compassion. She listens and delivers exactly what you’re looking for! She also eases any nerves when it comes to getting injections. It was my first time at Lyle Plastics- everything was top notch. Gabby (front desk) was so welcoming, Haley PA was very informative and helped with explaining other treatments. I will be returning for other treatments. The office is beautiful and so classy!! Thank you all 💓

I had the such a fantastic BBL broad band laser, treatment with Mary Laura. Years of fun in the sun left me with memories…and brown spots, lots of them. My skin feels so soft, bright and my eyes feel open again, no one’s asking me “did you get enough sleep?” It’s incredible. I’ll be back, and I’m sending my friends!
