Men interested in male breast reduction in the Dallas metroplex go to Dr. Weider to improve the appearance of oversized breasts by contouring the pectoral area of their chest. This results in:

Dr. Weider performs male breast reduction surgery to provide firmer, well-proportioned chests for men. The time required for gynecomastia surgery may be two or more hours, depending upon the extent of the procedure. During male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Weider may use local anesthesia and sedation when utilizing liposuction to remove excess fat from the pectoral region. The advantages of this technique are the simplicity of the surgery, inconspicuous incisions, and the speed of recovery. Finally, a compression garment may be placed around the breasts which should be worn for seven or more days following surgery.
Dr. Weider will see you within the first few days following gynecomastia surgery. You will be provided with guidelines for activity restrictions and medications to ease discomfort. You may experience swelling, bruising, bleeding or and numbness following surgery which will subside with the aid of the compression garment and pain medication. Most people return to work within one to two weeks following the procedure.
As with all medical procedures, complications rarely occur and can usually be managed by Dr. Weider. Scars will lighten over time, and Dr. Weider will do his best to place them in discreet locations.
You will start to see results soon after the procedure, and they will typically last for many years to come. Gynecomastia surgery results may change over time, depending upon aging, weight changes, medical conditions, and certain drugs. The benefits of male breast reduction are very rewarding for Dr. Weider’s patients.
