Gynecomastia (male breast reduction) plastic surgery represents one of the fastest-growing areas in plastic surgery. Reduction of enlarged male breasts (Gynecomastia) is achieved by removal of glandular breast tissue by direct surgical excision and fatty (adipose) areas which are diet resistant by ultrasonic-assisted liposuction.
Gynecomastia is a common medical condition in which men develop breast tissue. Gynecomastia occurs in approximately 50% of all men in different forms, ranging from excess breast or excess fatty tissue. Though the causes are uncertain, Gynecomastia typically occurs for a short period in many teenage males and frequently dissipates.
However, gynecomastia may persist in some men or develop later in life usually in association with weight gain. Other causes of enlarged breast development in men can be due to hormone fluctuations, medical or recreational drugs, obesity, or a genetic predisposition.
It’s been a little over six months since my gynecomastia surgery and I feel like a new man. The results have exceeded my expectations and I am enjoying summer like I never have (nor thought I could), thanks to Dr. Pensler!
I went in for a consultation in September at his Chicago plastic surgery practice and immediately felt at ease (thanks to the welcoming staff and my enlightening conversation with Dr. Pensler), so I scheduled my surgery for the following November. I followed Dr. Pensler’s post-op instructions and wore my vest until we both felt necessary. As I’m writing this, I continuously glance down at my flat chest and am still in disbelief. Being in my 40’s, I had resigned myself to a life of loose-fitting shirts and staying clear of beaches and pool parties. I’ve spent the last 30+ years doing just that so it’s time to start living. Nowadays, I’m wearing athletic-cut t-shirts and slim-fit dress shirts with pride and getting a lot of compliments from people who assume I’ve been working out extra-hard lately (shhh…that’s our lil secret). As far as taking my shirt off to go into the water – sometimes I’m still the first one and sometimes I’m still the last one but I’m also the second, third, forth, etc. – now being a decision based on my mood rather than my fear.

Trust me, you won’t regret it. This has been a life-changing experience for me and I owe it all to this guy! WQW! ~ YELP
