Male Breast Reduction
Many men of all ages struggle with an excess of breast tissue, a condition that’s medically called gynecomastia. While gynecomastia isn’t dangerous, it can be a source of great self-consciousness for males. Many factors can contribute to this condition, which isn’t always related to being overweight. Male breast reduction here in The Woodlands with Dr. Sugene Kim is an effective treatment option that offers men from Spring, Conroe, and the greater Houston area lasting confidence and peace of mind.
Are You a Candidate for Male Breast Reduction?
Male breast reduction is a relatively straightforward procedure. If you’re bothered by the presence of feminine looking breasts that isn’t caused by an underlying medical condition, you’re likely an appropriate candidate. Good candidates for elective surgery include men who don’t smoke and those who are in generally good health.

Depending on the significance of your condition and the results you’d like to achieve, Dr. Kim may perform simple liposuction of the fat on your chest, or she may need to excise breast and glandular tissue with or without removing skin. In either case, she uses small, carefully placed incisions that eventually fade to discreet scars. Often, these incisions are made around the edge of your areola, ensuring that the resulting scars are barely noticeable in the color border.
During your consultation with Dr. Kim, she walks you through each step of her surgical plan, ensuring you know exactly what to expect from your results and your recovery.
While experiences vary, male breast reduction patients typically return to work within 1 week. However, it’s important to take several additional weeks away from strenuous activity, especially that which uses your upper body.
