Male Breast Reduction Long Island

Conveniently located to serve Long Island

Male Breast Reduction Long IslandMale breast reduction is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, called Gynecomastia. While this can result from hormonal changes, medical conditions, or certain drugs, most cases have no identifiable cause. Dr. Layliev will determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for a male breast reduction in Long Island and will help you understand the benefits of surgery.

Depending on the severity of excess breast tissue and skin laxity, the procedure can be done by liposuction alone, with excision of glandular tissue through an incision in the lower half of the areola, or with both glandular removal and skin excision.

The Best Candidates for Male Breast Reduction

Men who want to correct over-developed breasts and are in good physical health are the best candidates for male breast reduction (also known as gynecomastia surgery). Individuals with life-threatening illnesses or medical conditions that could complicate wound healing may not be considered for this procedure.

A male breast reduction procedure is also best for men who have a normal BMI. Individuals who are obese may risk surgical site infection and slower healing due to reduced blood flow.

This procedure is also best for individuals with a healthy lifestyle. To be considered for surgery, you will need to refrain from drinking alcohol and smoking before the procedure in order to prevent complications on excessive bleeding and blood clots.

Since people vary in body type, results will be different for every individual. Be sure to have realistic expectations and a positive outlook when considering a male breast reduction procedure. The decision to undergo this surgical procedure must not come from the influence of others.

Male Breast Reduction Consultation

Your gynecomastia consultation in Long Island will involve a detailed discussion of your appearance goals. Lab tests will be required to evaluate your complete blood count with platelet, clotting time, bleeding time, cardio clearance, and other tests.

To help Dr. Layliev assess your eligibility for this procedure, provide your complete medical history, including allergies and current medications. This will assist the surgeon in selecting the correct anesthesia for you.

During the consultation, Dr. Layliev will evaluate your chest and discuss surgical techniques that will help you achieve the best results.

  • “Wonderful Experience”

    I had a male breast reduction with Dr. Layliev and from beginning to end he was absolutely impeccable. My surgery was at the hospital and scheduling with Jessica was easy and pleasant. I had no complications and I love the fact that he likes a lot of follow-up appointments and feedback from his patients. After surgery, he came to see me in the hospital and made sure I knew that if I needed him for anything no matter the time of day he was available. He takes his time to listen to his patients and that means a lot. He truly cares for his patients and strives to be sure you are completely satisfied. My appointments have never been rushed and he makes you a priority. I couldn’t recommend him enough. He is an amazing surgeon and all around nice guy.
