Revitalized Chest Confidence

For men struggling with gynecomastia, many enjoyable activities such as going to the beach or participating in sports may be curtailed by body image concerns. Our treatment for gynecomastia in Denver removes excess breast tissue and fat, revitalizing the chest appearance, expanding wardrobe options, and enhancing self-confidence and emotional security.

What is Gynecomastia Treatment?

Gynecomastia is a common medical concern among men in which glandular tissue becomes enlarged, resulting in feminine-looking chest contours. The condition can occur in men of all ages and is most often due to hormonal imbalance, medications, or the use of certain drugs.

Undergoing male breast reduction in Denver is a leading solution for restoring a flat, sculpted chest and our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons deliver game changing results that strategically transform the upper body. The procedure involves the excision of excess tissue and the removal of fat using liposuction.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia may have different causes in different clients. Commonly, it is due to hormonal imbalances between estrogen and androgen. Low testosterone (hypogonadism) may also contribute to the formation of enlarged breast tissue. 

Note that overweight or obese patients may suffer from pseudogynecomastia rather than true glandular tissue enlargement. The following conditions may lead to gynecomastia:

  • Alcoholism or drug abuse
  • Steroid use
  • Adrenal tumors
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Klinefelter syndrome (genetic)
  • Bacterial or fungal infections
  • Enlarged prostate gland
  • Certain medications

What Are the Advantages of Gynecomastia Treatment?

  • Restores a sculpted, masculine-looking chest
  • Trims excessive breast tissue, skin, and fat in the upper body
  • Allows men to enjoy going shirtless 
  • Increases social comfort and self-confidence
  • Provides a more youthful-looking, athletic physique

Am I a Candidate for the Procedure?

For men who have found it impossible to contour their chests through dieting and exercise and who have received a diagnosis of true gynecomastia, undergoing male breast reduction in Denver may be an ideal solution. The best candidates are physically and mentally healthy non-smokers who are at or close to their goal weights and who are realistic in their expectations for their results.

How is my Gynecomastia Treatment Personalized?

Your surgery to treat gynecomastia in Denver is tailored to your unique concerns and body type. The procedure takes 1-2 hours and is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. You will need to arrange transportation home from the clinic. 


To combat loose skin and excess tissue, your surgeon will make incisions around the areola, where scarring will later be well-concealed. Once the redundant skin and tissue are removed, the area is sutured and the patient is placed in the recovery suite.


Liposuction can be used in tandem with excision to combat excess stubborn fat in the chest and reveal more chiseled contours. Some men, especially those dealing with pseudogynecomastia may achieve their best results using liposuction alone, provided they have minimal skin laxity.

After surgery, patients receive compression garments to help minimize swelling and keep the newly sculpted chest contours intact. Prescription pain medications will be provided along with a detailed and personalized aftercare plan.

Sutures are removed at one week post-op. Drains may be placed for 2-3 days to help escort any excess fluids and blood out of the body. Most patients can resume work within the first week and exercise within 2-4 weeks.

During your initial meeting with our team, we will examine you physically, review your medical history, and create a treatment plan that is unique to your concerns.
