Gynecomastia is a male-specific condition in which an imbalance of estrogen can cause the excessive growth of breast tissue. The condition can be caused by a number of factors and can happen essentially at any age, potentially causing a lack of self-confidence in those it afflicts. If you are a male and currently suffering from excessive breast tissue, consider a consultation at Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, is experienced in the surgical treatment of gynecomastia. This procedure involves the removal of the excess breast tissue, much like a breast reduction, to reveal a small, more proportionate shape.
Since excess breast tissue can be caused by medical conditions other than gynecomastia, a doctor should confirm the cause before treatment. Ideal candidates will have:
- A healthy body weight
- Fat and breast tissue that is resistant to diet and exercise
- Good skin elasticity
- Overall good health

"Barbara SorianoWhen I lost over 30 lbs a couple years ago, I was not happy with the way my neck and my breast looked. I started researching plastic surgeons that could help me with a neck and breast lift. I consulted a few in New York and New Jersey, but wasn’t satisfied with what they were offering. Then, after taking my cousin’s advice, I started to look for a doctor in Miami. That’s how I came across Dr. Rosenbaum I read all his credentials and reviews, and I wrote an email to his staff. From the first response I got from Gladys, I felt confident that I had found the place to have my surgery. Not long after, I flew to Miami to meet Dr. Rosenbaum. Everything was great— his office, his staff ,the way he spent time with me explaining the surgery and recuperation, the fact that he does his surgeries in Mt Sinai OR and you stay overnight. Not to mention, the personalized care and attention. I was sure I had found the doctor I was looking for. Dr. Rosenbaum is caring, professional, experienced, and a lovely person. I must also praise his staff. Nora was upfront about all costs and explained the financial aspects of the procedure in a simple, honest way. Yoli, his nurse, is lovely, and very professional , while Gladys was there for me every time I needed her before and after my procedure. I am so glad I flew from New York to Miami to have my 2 procedures with Dr. Rosenbaum, and could not be happier with the results! He’s changed my life and confidence.!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 05, 2019

"Dr Rosenbaum changed my life for the best. I got exactly what I wished for and I couldn’t be more pleased with my amazing breast reduction results. From myfirst consultation, I knew I had chosen the right surgeon. Not only is he very professional, it is obvious that he’s an expert in breast surgery from his detailed explanation of the procedure. He made me feel comfortable from the start of my journey. The staff was also incredible, Yoli was always available to answer any post of questions."- C.N. / Google / May 26, 2019
What to Expect
Male breast reduction surgery usually involves a combination of surgical tissue removal and liposuction. Dr. Rosenbaum will make an incision (usually around the areola) and remove dense breast tissue with surgical excisions. Then Dr. Rosenbaum can remove any excess fat with liposuction to create a smooth contour. After the surgery, patients will have their chest bandaged and in a compression garment that should be worn at all times. Patients should rest and move their upper body as little as possible for at least three days. Most patients can return to work in 7 – 10 days and resume low impact exercise in 2 – 3 weeks. Dr. Rosenbaum will go over specific recovery instructions and any prescribed medication.
Results from male breast reduction are usually seen at least three months after the surgery when the swelling has subsided. It may take 6 – 12 months for the skin to tighten and form to the new chest shape. The results of male breast reduction surgery will be permanent as long as the patient maintains a healthy, stable weight, but natural signs of aging (like loose skin) will continue.
