A hormone imbalance can cause many problems, including enlarged breast or gynecomastia in men.

"Choosing a surgeon in Beverly Hills is easy if you take my recommendation. I've known so many surgeons and yet I always recommend Dr. Trott. Soft spoken, well educated, with an eye for beauty and the skills of an artist! I've used her for years, along with my many friends, who like me, aren't impressed with marketing tricks but depend on experience and proven results when choosing someone to change their body. She is simply the leader in her field, liposuction, breast work and the latest "Silhouette" threads. Don't delay, go see her and you'll be amazed at the results."- D.D. / Yelp / Oct 30, 2017
"Silhouette Instalift is the way to go! It's easy, quick and affordable. However don't be fooled by others, make sure Dr. Trott does the procedure so the results will be perfect! Experience is the only criteria and she is the best!"- D.D. / Google / Oct 23, 2017
"Dr Trott is amazing, she's seriously such a genius. She gets me, and as a fellow female she understands exactly what it is I'm looking for. I had liposuction done to contour my body more and I never felt like I had to break down what my goal was- I literally told her to do whatever she thought would look best aesthetically and she DELIVERED. I'm beyond happy with the results, her after care regime is on point and she uses her own designed compression garment. She is simply the best, I cannot say enough good things about her and her skills."- S.V. / Yelp / Sep 23, 2017
"I met Dr. Trott through a mutual friend who thought I might be a good candidate for a thread lift. I felt a bit apprehensive about the procedure until Suzanne explained the process, answered my questions, and encouraged my feedback at every stage. She was so warm, loving and knowledgeable, that my fears disappeared; I knew I was in the hands of an experienced, caring, professional. My results are absolutely astonishing! It has been five days since the procedure. I looked younger ( jaw line tight, folds around mouth all but erased) immediately. I look younger everyday. I am 58 and now look better than I have in years. Thank you Dr. Trott for making it fun to look in the mirror once again. Please don't hesitate to reach out to Dr. Trott; you will be so glad you did!"- S.K. / Yelp / Aug 19, 2017
"My visits with Dr. Trott are great. She makes room for me in her busy schedule for Botox. She is always warm, welcoming and makes me feel very comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. I look forward to all of my visits, and would recommend Dr. Trott to anyone."- N.G. / Google / Apr 08, 2017
The best candidates for male breast reduction surgery have been diagnosed with gynecomastia and have tried other treatments such as diet, exercise, or medication. The most favorable candidates are those who are in good health, but need assistance getting rid of excess fat and tissue in the breasts. Patients with other medical conditions should discuss their medical history thoroughly with a surgeon prior to surgery.
What to Expect
A male breast reduction surgery is an effective method of treatment for gynecomastia. Usually performed as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia, the surgeon will use a combination of liposuction and tissue excision to decrease the size of the breasts and remove any unnecessary fat and tissue. Using liposuction, fat is removed through small incisions made on each side of the chest, along the edge of the areola, or within the armpit, depending on the best and safest technique to meet your cosmetic needs.
Gynecomastia can affect one or both of the breasts, in different ways. In most cases, it is not a serious condition, but it can cause some physical ailments such as back pain and emotional stress from embarrassment. Male breast reduction surgery not only removes excess breast tissue, but also sculpts the chest for a more masculine look. In more severe cases of gynecomastia, patients may require a tissue excision. During a tissue excision, the surgeon is able to remove more tissue and skin than with liposuction alone.
Following male breast reduction surgery, no matter the technique used, you will experience bruising and swelling on and around the chest area for the first couple of weeks. Although you may feel sore after surgery, this will subside after a few days. Some men may experience a loss of sensation in the chest area, but this is only temporary. Each patient will experience a different healing process and should follow the surgeon’s care instructions for optimal results.
