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

"I had a neck lift, lower facelift and an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) Dec 2019 by Doctor Rosenbaum. If I would have known how little pain and downtime involved with this surgery I would have done this 5 years ago. I was out to dinner with friends within 4 days! I love the results and I already have 2 friends signed up to do their facelift. My husband tells me how beautiful I am everyday and friends tell me how young I look (15 years younger) or the people that don’t know keep asking what skin care products are you using? I did not even want to look at myself in the mirror and now I welcome the mirror. Smile lines gone, sagging Jowls gone and my Neck! I never thought it was possible to have a neck with no wrinkles. I’m am so pleased not only with the results but the interaction throughout the whole process with Doctor Rosenbaum. I interviewed plastic surgeons in Boca Raton that friends told me about and I was so uncomfortable so I put it off (years passed and more and more Botox). Then a lightbulb went off and I remembered Doctor Rosenbaum and within that moment I knew I was going to have him perform my facelift surgery. When I went into his office to talk to him I was at ease (still a little nervous) but I trusted him that he had my best interest at heart and he understood exactly what I wanted. So if I can say two things Doctor Rosenbaum is your doctor for your facelift and if you are nervous don’t wait. Also his staff Yoli and Noora were so wonderful I can’t say enough good things."- K.S. / Google / Jan 09, 2020
"I couldn’t be happier with the care, service and outcome I received from Dr. Rosenbaum and his entire staff. Time and nursing several babies took its toll and I decided to get a few consults for a breast lift. Dr. Rosenbaum made me feel extremely comfortable. He took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. I never felt rushed, pressured to make a decision, or pushed to do anything. Dr. Rosenbaum listened to my concerns and helped me decide the best course for me. I felt well prepared for what to expect after surgery. I went home the same day and had no pain from the breast lift. The care and attentiveness provided by Dr. Rosenbaum made me certain I had made the right choice in choosing him as my surgeon. Special mention for Nora who helped coordinate appointments and hospital scheduling, and Yoli who made herself available for anything and everything, and always with a warm smile. The entire staff was warm, professional and as helpful as could be. I couldn’t be more pleased for having this cosmetic procedure done by Dr. Rosenbaum. Highly recommend!"- M.R. / Google / Dec 19, 2019

"I had a great experience with Dr. Gary R. He is an excellent surgeon and is a perfectionist. I am really amazed with the results of my breast reduction. He exceeded my expectations! His staff was also very caring and very willing to help. Without a doubt I recommend Dr. Gary for anyone who is looking to get breast surgery."- F.A. / Google / Dec 13, 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.
