A well-defined chest has long been a sign of masculinity, but despite rigorous diet and exercise, this ideal eludes many men. For men with a condition called gynecomastia, excess breast tissue can make it impossible to achieve a toned, flat chest, no matter how many pushups or bench presses they do.
Your Consultation for Body Contouring
During your consultation for body contouring, our physician will begin with a physical examination and a review of any underlying medical conditions. During this exam, your skilled plastic surgeon will evaluate pockets of fat on your abdomen and how they relate to the abdominal muscles.
For men who suffer from enlarged breasts and loose skin, body contouring options like liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can help to achieve a masculine silhouette. Gynecomastia surgery is also an option for men with breast tissue that has not responded to diet and exercise.
At Surgical Images, we are proud to offer a wide range of plastic surgery options for men looking to enhance their appearance. Whether you want to slim down with liposuction or lift and contour your chest with gynecomastia surgery, our skilled surgeons can help.

Understanding Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a common condition that leads to overdeveloped, often feminine-looking breasts in males. This condition is often a source of embarrassment starting at puberty, prompting an increasing number of men to pursue male breast reduction.
Gynecomastia is caused by a combination of factors, including hormonal changes, an overabundance of glandular tissue, and a weakening of the chest muscles. This procedure reduces excess bulk and re-contours the chest to appear flatter, firmer, and more toned. With male body contouring in Omaha from Aesthetic Surgical Images, you can enjoy increased confidence knowing you have achieved your ideal body type.
Treatment for gynecomastia depends on the extent of the condition. Sometimes the excess tissue is relatively small and concentrated under the nipple-areolar complex. In this case, simple excision intended to re-contour the breast is sufficient. If the excess tissue is fattier in its consistency, liposuction may be a good option. Very often, a combination of direct excision and liposuction techniques is employed. If the breast enlargement is quite large, it may be necessary to re-tailor the overlying skin envelope.
Your Male Breast Reduction Procedure
This contouring procedure is performed at our state-of-the-art, fully accredited surgery facility. General anesthesia is administered by M.D. anesthesiologists for your utmost safety. In some cases, an Omaha liposuction procedure alone can create the desired results, but in most cases, skin and tissue must also be removed.
Your surgery will involve a very precise incision around the areola – the darker circle of skin around the nipple. Through this incision, excess skin and breast tissue are removed, and the remaining tissue is repositioned for a more toned, masculine appearance. Scars from male breast reduction are well-concealed and typically fade to the point that they are almost undetectable.
Other Body Contouring Procedures For Men
In addition to male breast reduction, our board-certified plastic surgeons specialize in the following body contouring procedures for men:
- Liposuction is an excellent way to eliminate fat pockets in the abdomen, buttocks, neck, and chest areas that are stubbornly resistant to exercise.
- Tummy Tuck can correct lax muscle tone and a bulging midsection for a more toned overall appearance.
- Post Bariatric Surgery can remove excess skin and sagging tissue from the arms, thighs, knees, buttocks, and abdomen after massive weight loss.
Some of our patients choose to have a single surgical procedure, while others combine procedures to achieve a more complete enhancement.
Enjoying Your Gynecomastia Results
Results from male body contouring procedures are visible almost immediately although full benefits will emerge over a matter of months. Healing times vary but in general, most men return to their usual routine within 1 to 2 weeks. Visit our before & after photo gallery to see the results our patients enjoy, and you’ll understand why more and more men choose body contouring from us.
Body Contouring Aftercare
For long-lasting results, a healthy diet and regular exercise should be maintained for at least several months after surgery. During the first few weeks of recovery, your doctor will provide instructions on how to properly care for your body as it heals. It’s important to follow these instructions to get the best results from your procedure.
In addition, maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help you achieve optimal results that last even longer over time.
Frequently Asked Questions about Male Breast Reduction

However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly after surgery to achieve optimal results that last long-term.
Male body contouring surgery is typically completed within a few hours and can help to create a more toned and masculine body shape. Depending on the extent of the procedure, liposuction alone may be sufficient or can be combined with the direct excision of excess skin and tissue.

“I lived with gynecomastia for almost 4 years. At first I didn’t think it was a big deal, but as time went on I began to grow more unhappy with my condition. No matter how much I worked out it did not help. Finally I got to the point where I wanted to look into surgery but was wary of the cost. At the Surgical Images facility I was able to finance my surgery which was completely stress free. I am ABSOLUTELY satisfied and glad I did it and at this facility with Dr. Bruneteau.. I would call him an expert. I was skeptical while looking at other peoples before and after shots from different surgical facilities, but after my surgery I was in awe at how good my chest looked! Its hard to believe how well it looks even now. the only down side is the recovery phase which is about a month (truthfully my surgery didn’t even hurt and they removed almost a pound of tissue!), but if you really want to change the way you look and feel its well worth it. My confidence is at 100%!! I thank Dr. Bruneteau and all the staff at surgical images for a stress free surgery from start to finish! If your like me and are tired of living with gyno then don’t hesitate get it done and get on with your life.”5 Stars
