Sculpt Your Chest

Many men may have a hormone imbalance with increased estrogen causing further development of the breast tissue. Lifestyle choices, such as diet and exercise, can also contribute to the excess growth of tissue in the chest area. Whatever the cause, we know it can be a source of embarrassment for men and boys. At MG Plastic Surgery, we can remove unwanted fat in the chest and reshape it to create a more masculine shape in Scottsdale, AZ.

What Is Gynecomastia Surgery?

A common condition affecting approximately 40 to 60 percent of men, gynecomastia refers to enlarged male breast tissue in one or both breasts. Gynecomastia surgery reduces the appearance of oversized breasts, restoring a firmer, more defined contour to the chest. The results can produce a more masculine chest that can boost self-esteem and a feeling of attractiveness. 

What Are the Benefits?

  • Enhanced masculine chest contour
  • Improved clothing options
  • Increased self-esteem and confidence
  • Long-lasting results
  • Alleviated back pain
  • Freedom from self-consciousness about your chest appearance

Am I a Good Candidate?

Healthy men with realistic expectations about what this surgery can accomplish are the best candidates for the procedure. Gynecomastia surgery is not a means to lose weight. Dr. Gigena will assess your health, medical history, and skin elasticity to ensure that you will have a successful outcome. You must also stop smoking and avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications for at least two weeks before your surgery. The most qualified candidates for surgery may be experiencing:

  • Swollen or oversized breasts
  • Difficulty obtaining definition in the chest muscles
  • Nipple sensitivity
  • Breast tenderness

What Happens During the Procedure?

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation with local anesthesia and takes approximately one to two hours. Dr. Gigena will reduce the breast size by cutting out the excess glandular tissue, using liposuction, or a combination of the two.

Through small incisions made on the chest, a thin cannula is inserted, delivering vibrations that help detach the excess fat cells from the breast tissue. These dislodged fat cells are then suctioned out through the cannula for an exquisitely defined chest.

After your procedure, you will experience some bruising, swelling, and tenderness. Dr. Gigena will give you a compression garment to wear for the first four to six weeks. This will minimize swelling and aid the healing process for your new chest contours.

Pain medications may be prescribed to control any soreness or discomfort. Most patients can return to work after one week of recovery, although heavy exercise and other strenuous activities must be avoided for the first four to six weeks.


While the results are immediately noticeable, you will begin to see the chiseled definition of your newly contoured chest appear more and more as the swelling subsides. The results are long-lasting, but you can maintain the definition by exercising and eating a healthy diet.

Any potential scarring resulting from your male breast reduction surgery will likely be concealed within the natural contours of your chest. However, visible scars gradually fade over time. Proper sun protection helps to reduce the appearance of scarring for optimal results.
