Although not often discussed, many adult men estimated at approximately half the adult population have breasts similar to women to a certain degree. This can
cause a lot of self-consciousness for such men especially in public situations such as locker rooms, pools, and beach settings. Hence, gynecomastia or breast
reduction surgery for men has surged in popularity. For patients in Manhattan, gynecomastia surgeon Dr. Arnold Breitbart performs gynecomastia
to reduce breast size by removing excess skin and fatty tissue from the breast area, resulting in a firmer chest that is flatter with a more masculine
appearance and stronger contours.
In Manhattan, gynecomastia patients are generally men who desire better contours and a more masculine torso. Ideal candidates have realistic
expectations for the outcome of surgery and have elastic skin. Men that use steroids or are heavy smokers or drinkers or are obese are not good candidates
for surgery. Also patients should have first tried to address the issue by weight loss and exercise and only if this has limited success, then should they
proceed to surgery in Manhattan. Gynecomastia has certain risks such as possible infection, bleeding, scarring, and skin injury. Hence, it is important
to select a physician that is qualified, certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In Manhattan, gynecomastia surgeon Dr. Breitbart is
both highly qualified and known for his caring bedside manner, making his patients comfortable every step of the way.
