What is Gynecomastia Treatment?

If you feel uncomfortable because you have excessive breast tissue on one side or both sides, then Dr. Michael Burgdorf may be able to help. In fact, gynecomastia surgery is one of the top procedures Dr. Burgdorf performs at his office. He is board-certified in plastic surgery and has extensive training in both male breast surgery and female breast surgery. If you still have significant and problematic breast enlargement despite a healthy lifestyle, then male breast reduction could be the solution for you.

Types of Male Breast Surgery


Dr. Burgdorf may use direct excision to remove the fibrous breast gland tissue and restore a flatter, more chiseled chest appearance that is conventionally masculine. This approach can be used when the areola or nipple needs to be repositioned. Incision patterns will be chosen according to your unique goals and anatomy.


In situations where gynecomastia can be addressed through the simple removal of excess fatty tissue, liposuction can be employed on its own to smooth and sculpt the chest. A slender tube called a cannula is inserted through small incisions, and the fat is suctioned out and discarded.


As a rule, revision procedures involve advanced skills and an evolved sense of artistry. Dr. Burgdorf can correct asymmetry, reduce scarring, and improve the overall results of a previously performed gynecomastia correction procedure.

Free Nipple Grafting

Free nipple grafting allows Dr. Burgdorf to avoid a telltale vertical scar stretching down to the bottom of the breast that is common with the anchor incision pattern. In the past, this scar was necessary for treating more severe cases of gynecomastia. Free nipple grafting produces balanced, symmetrical results with well-concealed incisions.

Male breast reduction procedures can be performed with or without additionally reducing the size of your areola, the pigmented skin that surrounds your nipple. Our goal is to help you achieve a body that you are comfortable and happy with.
