Naples Plastic Surgery is one of the few cosmetic surgery practices in Naples that offers male breast reduction surgery for gynecomastia. Under our surgeons’ skilled hands, gynecomastia surgery is performed to remove and reshape the breast tissue to help develop a more toned chest. The procedure usually results in a slimmer physique, as well as a resultant boost in self-body image and confidence.
Before gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Paul Gardner, Dr. Leo Baccaro, or Dr. Jason Crespo personally consult with their patients in order to fully understand their aesthetic goals and to develop a gynecomastia treatment plan customized for the patient’s unique physique and condition. The patient’s history is examined to make sure the gynecomastia cannot be managed non-operatively, and a physical breast examination will determine which treatment option will best help the patient achieve his goals.
Drs. Gardner, Baccaro, and Crespo tailor the male breast reduction surgery to each patient’s needs. If the enlarged breast tissue is mostly fat, tiny incisions are made in the nipple and underarm, and liposuction is done to remove the excess fat. If there is excess breast tissue, an incision is placed around the lower part of the nipple at the junction of the skin and the pigmented part of the nipple to hide the scar. The excess breast tissue is then completely removed allowing the pectoralis muscle to become more defined. If there is fat and excess breast tissue, liposuction is done on the remaining fatty tissues. The skin is then allowed to re-drape over the chest wall, re-shaping the breast to a more pleasing contour.
Male breast reduction surgeries are done as outpatient surgery at our fully accredited Naples Plastic Surgery facility. Some patients are sent home with drainage tubes for a few days to empty any fluid that accumulates in the space where the breast tissue was removed. Patients typically require one to two weeks of recovery during which they must refrain from any vigorous activity. A compression garment is worn for several weeks to help the breasts conform to their new shape.
Like all surgical procedures, male breast reduction surgery has risks. Dr. Gardner, Dr. Baccaro, and Dr. Crespo always review these with patients during preoperative visits. Gynecomastia patients often feel at ease once they review Naples Plastic Surgery’s outstanding surgical record, which helps them feel confident they are in good hands.
Health is the highest priority to our surgeons, so they work with great care when performing gynecomastia to improve the aesthetics of the chest. They take pride in helping patients begin their journey toward their aesthetic goals and strive to help patients obtain the natural-looking results they desire.

This includes a comprehensive discussion with you to identify the benefits, risks and costs associated with each procedure. It may be possible to combine a number of surgical procedures into a single surgery if you desire and if your medical condition permits it.
