What is Gynecomastia?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


Gynecomastia is a condition in which men develop excess breast tissue. This creates the appearance of male breasts. While this condition often develops during puberty and can fade over time or through diet and exercise, it can also persist for years. In that case, plastic surgery is an option for Denver-area men.

A firm chest is important to the perception of masculinity for many men. Conversely, the appearance of male breasts can be embarrassing and unsightly. Fortunately, Grossman Plastic Surgery can provide a solution for men who have tried diet and exercise without seeing the desired results.

Gynecomastia surgery usually relies on VASER® liposuction to remove deposits of fatty tissues from the pectoral area. VASER liposuction uses safe ultrasound waves to break up fat cells, making them easier to remove and shortening recovery time.

In some circumstances, gynecomastia can be the result of glandular issues. In those cases, plastic surgery won’t address the root causes of the condition. Our doctors will discuss your options with you and help you find the treatment method that’s right for you.

At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we understand the unique concerns and needs of our male patients. Gynecomastia surgery is just of the procedures we have that are tailored specifically for men. We believe in helping you achieve your aesthetic desires.

If you’re a Denver, Colorado-area man suffering from gynecomastia, plastic surgery might be the right choice for you. Please contact Grossman Plastic Surgery today.
