Excess breast tissue in a man, also known as male gynecomastia or man boob, can be an absolute nightmare to live with. Although weight loss may reduce the size of male breasts, in most cases the problem persists, even when a man is at a healthy weight. Hormonal issues or genetics also play a role, with unwanted breast tissue remaining stubbornly evident no matter what conservative measures are taken.

Conveniently located for patients in the NYC area, we provide no scar or minimal scar surgery, pre and post-operative care for male breast reduction procedures and male gynecomastia treatments.

What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition, where a male develops breast growth that resembles a female breast, commonly called “man boob”. Gynecomastia causes a great deal of embarrassment to the patients who have it. This “male breast” condition can be seen in as many as 30% of all men to a variable degree.
What is the cause of Gynecomastia?
In some patients Gynecomastia is of hereditary nature, in some hormonal or associated with disease and in others it is linked to certain medication use.
How is the procedure done?
Whatever the cause for gynecomastia, many men seek to improve the appearance of their chest. In the vast majority of the cases, PAL and UAL (Power Assisted Liposuction and Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction) provide the answer. Dr. Grossman makes a tiny incision in the belly button through which the breast tissue is reduced until proper proportions are achieved.
What anesthesia does one need for gynecomastia surgery?
The procedure can be performed under local, Pro-Nox (laughing gas) or twilight anesthesia.
Recovery after Gynecomastia surgery:
Mild postoperative discomfort is easily controlled with Tylenol or Motrin. No pressure garments are needed. Return to work is allowed by the next day. The Gym is OK in just three days and the beach with swimming in about one week. Scarring is minimal or nonexistent since no sutures are used.
In a small group of patients, in whom Liposuction may not be of benefit, resection of the Gynecomastia tissue is necessary. Only approximately 5% of all patients fall into this category. In these cases the approach is more individualized and must be discussed with Dr. Grossman.
Price of Gynecomastia surgery in NYC varies according to what needs to be addressed as well as the volume of the procedure as well as the delicate nature of the procedure. Patient’s medical history and condition are very important in the decision making process, since the patients’ safety is of paramount importance.
The patient must know that the price of Gynecomastia Surgery may include the surgeon’s fee, price of anesthesia, operating facility and ancillary staff fee, so make sure the price you are quoted is an all inclusive price. When shopping for the best deal in town keep these facts in mind and also be ware that having the least expensive surgeon operate on you may eventually cost you so much more in the future. Loss of health and time is very expensive.
Corrective procedures are much more expensive, than the first time well performed surgery.
Your goal as the patient is to make the right choice and have the surgery you have always wanted done right the very first time, by the right hands.
