Reducing Gynecomastia, Increasing Confidence

Greek for "woman-like breasts," gynecomastia affects about 40 to 60 percent of men and is a source of great embarrassment for those with this condition. Board-certified Denver Plastic Surgeon Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO specializes in male breast reduction surgery, a safe and effective option for men who are self-conscious about their chests.

Dr. Buford uses a combination of VASER ultrasonic liposuction, MicroAire liposuction, and Renuvion skin tightening to create dramatic improvements. As one of the few centers nationwide to use all three treatments in one setting, you’ll get the best results from this powerful combination.

All male breast reduction procedures are performed by Dr. Buford at BEAUTY by BUFORD, his plastic surgery practice in Lone Tree, Colorado. In some cases, Dr. Buford can perform your procedure under light sedation in our office.

Why Do Men Need Breast
Reduction Surgery?

At BEAUTY by BUFORD, we understand that gynecomastia, the development of excess breast tissue in men, can be a source of self-consciousness and discomfort. Male breast reduction surgery offers a transformative solution, tailored to address this concern and help men regain their confidence.

With Dr. Buford’s expertise in male cosmetic surgery, he strives to provide natural and personalized results that enhance both your physical appearance and emotional well-being.

Benefits of Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Male breast reduction surgery can help you transform your physical appearance — as well as your mental and emotional well-being — by:

  • Improving your physique: Male breast reduction surgery effectively reduces the excess breast tissue and fat, resulting in a flatter and more masculine chest contour. By removing the unwanted tissue, the procedure restores a more defined and sculpted appearance, enhancing your overall physique.
  • Enhancing your self-confidence: Gynecomastia can cause significant emotional distress and impact your self-confidence. Male breast reduction surgery helps alleviate these concerns, allowing you to feel more comfortable and at ease with your body. Regaining a masculine chest contour can lead to improved self-esteem and a positive body image.
  • Renewing your interest in physical activities: For some men, enlarged breasts can limit their participation in physical activities or sports that require removing their shirt. Male breast reduction surgery can eliminate this restriction, allowing you to engage in activities without the fear of embarrassment or self-consciousness.
  • Expanding your wardrobe: Gynecomastia may make it challenging to find well-fitting clothing, causing frustration and a limited choice of wardrobe. After male breast reduction surgery, patients often find it easier to wear form-fitting shirts and enjoy a wider range of clothing options, leading to increased satisfaction with their appearance.

What to Expect from Gynecomastia Reduction

The removal of fat, tissue, excess skin caused by gynecomastia results in a contoured, firmer, and flatter chest. Dr. Buford uses VASER liposuction to effectively reduce fat accumulation and excess tissue in the male chest. Gynecomastia reduction will restore your confidence and give you that "shirt off" confidence you deserve.

"Not counting my decision to have a family, when compared to all the other decisions I have made to try to improve my own personal life including participating in and excelling at extreme sports, buying the latest sports equipment, buying new cars, traveling, and everything else that I have ever done for myself, choosing to have this surgery is by far the best decision I have ever made.

I did not think it was possible for my chest to be changed into a normal male chest, and I will always owe Dr. Buford a most sincere debt of gratitude for alleviating this burden from me."

In most cases, Dr. Buford can treat gynecomastia by removing excess fat and breast tissue using only VASER liposuction, a less-invasive technique that allows for precise chest sculpting with minimal post-operative swelling and bruising, and with virtually undetectable scars.

Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery Right for You?
