Many of our male patients are uncomfortable with their chests due to excess, unwanted breast tissue. In men, this condition is medically known as gynecomastia. Having excess breast tissue as a man can be psychologically damaging, leading to feelings of low confidence and self-esteem as well as a diminished quality of life. In addition, many men with gynecomastia feel that their social lives greatly suffer. Excess breast tissue may also hinder physical activities or create discomfort when wearing certain clothes.
Fortunately, breast reduction procedures can help our male patients achieve comfort and confidence in their bodies. For more information about gynecomastia treatment and male breast reduction in Spokane, connect with our board-certified plastic surgeon today.
Breast reduction surgery, formally known as a reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure designed to reduce excess and unwanted skin, fat, and tissue from the breasts. For our male patients, breast reduction surgery is an excellent treatment for gynecomastia.
At KM Plastic Surgery in Spokane, male breast reduction surgery involves different techniques compared to female breast reduction. With male breast reduction, excess breast tissue and skin are removed in a strategic way that takes the contours of the male physique into consideration to make the body look and feel more masculine.

During your Spokane male breast reduction procedure, our trusted surgical team administers conscious sedation to ensure your comfort. The specific surgical strategy will be customized for each patient’s unique needs, but typically involves Dr. Morimoto making small incisions to remove excess tissue and fat from the breasts. In some instances, liposuction is utilized. We ensure incisions are placed strategically so resulting scarring is minimal. The procedure typically takes between one and three hours depending on the extensiveness and cause of the excess tissue.
Prior to your male breast reduction procedure, our Spokane clinical team will provide you with a full list of individualized directions to follow for a smooth recovery.
Make sure you arrange for a ride home from the office from a trusted friend or family member. You will not be able to drive following your breast reduction procedure.
For the first few weeks following your surgery, our medical team will recommend that you avoid vigorous exercise or movement. For the first two weeks, refrain from lifting your arms or working out your chest muscles in any manner.
Our team will schedule follow-up appointments with you to monitor your recovery and progress. Once you are released from our care, it is still important that you care for your results and your body by engaging in a healthy lifestyle and following a balanced diet.
