Male breast reduction or gynecomastia surgery is a procedure performed by Dr. Elie Abdelhak to remove the excess fat and excess breast glandular tissue and fat in order to restore a firmer, flatter and more masculine chest contour.
The Day of Your Surgery
Dr. Elie Abdelhak ensures excellent outcomes with the use of the vaser technique to remove excess fat and glandular tissue, contouring the chest in a way that looks natural and aesthetically pleasing to the body. Liposuction is performed on an outpatient, under a local anesthesia and for one hour time.
With liposuction, a small tube is inserted under the skin through small incisions. Typically, incisions are placed on either side of the chest, around the areola, and near the armpit, depending on the specific client needs. Through the incisions, the cannula (small tube) is moved back and forth to loosen the fat tissue. A small vacuum suctions the fat tissue out through the tube, permanently removing it from the body.
Recovery following surgery is relatively painless and brief. Expect that you can shower, drive, and go back to desk work within a day or two, and that you can exercise after 2 weeks. You will probably need to wear a compression strap over your chest for several weeks to help with healing.

Many men avoid social situations in which they may need to show their chests, such as summer gatherings at the beach or exercising at a gym. Gynecomastia can be present in men of any age and to different levels throughout a man’s lifespan. Male breast reduction surgery can be successfully performed on males from adolescence to adulthood.
How long will the results last?
The results of the procedure are permanent for most men. However, if gynecomastia was a result of using specific prescription medications, drugs such as steroids, or poor diet and exercise habits, it is vital that healthy lifestyle choices are priority. Resuming hormonal medications, steroids or gaining weight can result in redevelopment of gynecomastia.
