Thousands of men have suffered for years with shame and embarrassment from Gynecomastia, enlargement of the glandular tissue in the male breast. This enlarged tissue could easily be confused with fatty tissue, commonly being referred to as “man boobs.” This condition can create serious self-esteem and body issues within a man, in turn severely affecting his social and personal life.

Gynecomastia causes more complications for men than just low self-esteem and embarrassment. It can be very painful, causing chronic pain and discomfort, leaving painful lumps and open sores under the nipple. Symptoms often start with breast development and lead to bloody nipple discharge and tenderness, leaving men very confused about what is going on with their bodies.

This condition forms from an imbalance of hormone levels in which the female hormone estrogen is at the same level of the male hormone androgen. This can be hereditary if an infant receives too much estrogen from the mother, or occur during puberty when hormones tend to fluctuate. As an adult, this condition often occurs as a side effect of using certain medications to treat other disorders. Medicines that treat anxiety, depression, ulcers, and epilepsy as well as chemo drugs often cause Gynecomastia. A man’s lifestyle choices play a role in the occurrence of Gynecomastia as well. The use of alcohol, steroids and drugs such as marijuana and heroin also contribute to the development of this condition.


Although Gynecomastia is not always preventable, all hope is not lost in being able to have a more masculine appealing physique and eliminating the pain. Dr. Douglas S. Steinbrech specializes in re-contouring the male physique by restoring a flatter, firmer appearance to the male chest, sending his clients confidence through the roof and eliminating all pain and discomfort that comes with this condition. Since 2000, we have seen a 29% increase in Gynecomastia surgeries. It is the 4th most common plastic surgery procedure amongst men after liposuction, rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery.

Gynecomastia is commonly treated with male breast reduction surgery and offers permanent results. In mild cases, liposuction is performed where the excess glandular tissue is removed and excess fat is removed by a vacuum suction. For more severe cases, an excision of the fiberous gland will be done along with liposuction. The excess glandular tissue is removed and the areola or nipple is reduced or repositioned to give the chest a more natural appearance.

Dr. Steinbrech understands the importance of your masculinity and is committed to finding the right procedure for you to gain your self esteem back and obtain a natural and appealing physique.
