You may be a candidate for Gynecomastia if:

You are male and have large breasts, consisting of excess breast tissue, fatty

The Goals of a Gynecomastia/Male Breast Reduction:

  • A chest without large breasts.
  • More Confidence going shirtless.

Your Gynecomastia/Male Breast Reduction Evaluation:

Drs. Perrotta and Pellegrino will evaluate your body to help decide on the best approach to the procedure at their Maryland or Delaware based locations. Once the doctor determines the surgical plan, you will meet with the aesthetic coordinator, who will continue to answer any of your questions, and will also provide you with a written quote, which clearly outlines all costs. Once the quote is signed, your pre-operative appointment and surgery date are scheduled.

Gynecomastia/Male Breast Reduction Surgery:

Dr. Perrotta and Dr. Pellegrino routinely perform gynecomastias on an outpatient basis.  Some patients prefer heavy IV sedation with local anesthesia while others require general anesthesia.  Their patients have the luxury of undergoing surgery in the most private and convenient of settings, the operating room suite located inside Peninsula Plastic Surgery’s Salisbury office complex. This operating room has the distinction of being fully accredited by AAAHC and certified by Medicare.

If the breasts are large but there is not a significant amount of excess skin, removal of breast tissue and surrounding fat usually suffices. The plastic surgeon achieves this by sharp dissection or liposuction.

If there is also a significant amount of excess skin, the plastic surgeon also removes some skin in the form of a donut or some other configuration.

Most cases require local anesthetic plus IV sedation.  Large cases require general anesthesia.

Post-Op Recovery:

The O.R. team applies light dressings and either an elastic garment or ace bandages.
Initial discomfort subsides daily and can be controlled with oral medication.
Most patients are able to return to work after approximately one to two weeks.
Scars will usually fade in 6-12 months.

Gynecomastia/Male Breast Reduction Before and After Photos:

Dr. Perrotta and Dr. Pellegrino’s plastic surgery practice has many before and after photos for you to look through.

Gynecomastia Costs:

Our Aesthetic Coordinator will discuss costs associated with the procedure during the consultation. A gynecomastia procedure costs include: anesthesia costs, plastic surgery facility fees and plastic surgeon fees.

Regardless of the approach to the procedure, Doctors Pellegrino and Perrotta are highly skilled in every area of breast enhancement with over 35 combined years of plastic surgery experience. Gynecomastias are performed by Dr. Pellegrino and Dr. Perrotta in their state-of-the-art, fully accredited facility to deliver the highest quality outcomes.

In fact, while it may appear that our patients would only travel from Delaware, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Virginia and Pennsylvania to see Drs. Perrotta and Pellegrino, women have traveled from around the world for their procedures.

We look forward to working with you and helping you achieve the results you desire.

OTHER POSSIBILITIES:

An additional procedure that would enhance the result is Liposuction of love handles.
