About Male Breast Reduction at CNY Cosmetic & Reduction Surgery
Male breast reduction not only reduces the size and improves the contour of a male patient’s chest, but can also correct deformities in that area, providing patients with a boost in self-confidence. There are three types of procedures to accomplish male breast reduction in Syracuse:
- Excision, or the removal, of surplus glandular tissue
- A combination of liposuction and excision
While patients are encouraged to first attempt to contour their chests with diet and exercise, those methods are not always successful. Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Drs. Gregory Baum and Anthony Deboni, can help patients for whom diet and exercise are not enough regain self-confidence with male breast reduction. For many patients, the results of male breast reduction in Syracuse, NY can be long-lasting as long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle.
