Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Surgery)

Breast development in men, a condition known as gynecomastia, is a common problem affecting many men at some point in their lives. Gynecomastia or breast tissue development in men can begin before puberty. Often it grows during puberty and gets worse. Gaining weight, genetics, hormones, and medications may be linked to this problem. Mild cases caused by excess fat (often called “pseudogynecomastia”) may resolve with just diet and exercise. However, in cases where there is excess glandular breast tissue present, only surgery can help.

Plastic surgery can fully restore a more masculine chest contour, eliminating the embarrassment and frustration that men with excess breast tissue often experience. We love helping men feel more comfortable in their bodies through gynecomastia treatment.

Dr. Bresnick, a board certified plastic surgeon, has extensive experience treating gynecomastia through male breast reduction. He uses a variety of techniques including liposuction and surgical excision to create a flatter, more defined chest appearance. This is one of our most popular procedures for men, and most patients can return to work within just a week of their procedure.

Ear Surgery for Men

Men with prominent ears often desire plastic surgery. We use otoplasty, which is a type of cosmetic ear surgery to reshape the ear and position it closer to the head. Ear surgery is very popular amongst our male patients. Since men tend to wear shorter hair styles than women, the ears are very visible and it’s more difficult to disguise prominent ears. Ear surgery can help restore confidence for men with an abnormal ear appearance.

Otoplasty can be performed on male patients starting at age 5. Dr. Bresnick regularly performs this procedure on children, teens, and adult men. He has extensive ear surgery experience, including cosmetic otoplasty and repair of ear trauma.

Eyelid Surgery for Men

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can restore a more youthful eye appearance to the upper or lower eyelids. This procedure can treat fatty bags under the eyes, loose eyelid skin, and eyelid sagging. Blepharoplasty is popular with both men and women. Our male patients love that this procedure can improve vision by removing sagging eyelids that cover the eye, and restore a more vibrant appearance.

Eyelid surgery is consistently one of the top 5 most popular cosmetic procedures for men in the U.S. In 2016 more than 31,000 treatments were performed on men around the country. At our Los Angeles plastic surgery practice, we can tailor this procedure to the unique needs of men and their ideal aesthetic.

Necklift and Facelift for Men

Our male facelift patients want to retain their masculine appearance while smoothing out unwanted wrinkles, jowling, and sagging. Dr. Bresnick’s approach is to focus on restoring a notably tighter neck and jawline. He believes that this is the key to a younger, masculine face. 

He avoids tightening the cheek area excessively so that a man retains a natural, yet younger look. Most men feel that they appear at least 7 to 10 years younger with the necklift, and this restores confidence and a natural and attractive appearance. Dr. Bresnick believes that a man should not look like he has had cosmetic surgery, only look younger and better! The goals are a more defined, and sculpted face with a defined jawline and a tighter neck. 

Liposuction for Men

Undesired fat is a common problem for men, especially on the abdomen, love handles, and low back areas. Often, diet and exercise alone can’t produce ideal results. With liposuction, you can effectively reduce common problem areas, such as the midsection. Liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits through small incisions using suction and vibration. Liposuction is performed manually, allowing Dr. Bresnick to carefully shape and sculpt your ideal look. His artistic ability to sculpt the body helps provide outstanding results. Some of the most popular areas for male liposuction include the abdomen, waist, back, breasts (gynecomastia), and neck/chin.

We offer two types of liposuction: tumescent liposuction and power assisted liposuction (PAL). We’ll talk about your options and help you find the right fit for your body type and goals.
