Gynecomastia treatment, also known as male breast reduction, is an excellent solution for those men struggling with “woman-like breasts,” a medical condition that may cause undue embarrassment and social inhibition. Dr. Nadeau will contour the chest, removing excess skin, tissue and fat and streamlining the torso for a more conventionally attractive physique.
What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia, the male condition of having overdeveloped “breasts,” can be socially devastating, making it difficult to feel comfortable in situations where one is expected to take off one’s shirt, such as in the locker room, on a sunny day outdoors, or at the pool. The major causes of gynecomastia are poor genes and drug and steroid use. The condition occurs in men of all ages and body types.
A male breast reduction in Seattle can sculpt, reshape and slim the chest, giving you back your self-esteem, and allowing you to confidently display your body anywhere you wish. Dr. Nadeau will create small incisions on either side of the chest and will then excise the excess fat and glandular tissue using a combination of surgical techniques and liposuction.
“ I feel beyond lucky that I chose Dr. Nadeau to do my procedures. From the moment that I walked into her office, I felt completely secure that Dr. Nadeau and her team had the highest professionalism.” Patient

Who makes the best candidate for gynecomastia treatment?

Clients should be at a healthy weight, of sound mind and body, have good skin elasticity, and be free from any major medical conditions that could inhibit recovery.

What does gynecomastia recovery entail?
You may experience some swelling, pain and bruising as is common after any surgery, but Dr. Nadeau will ensure your comfort with prescribed medications and detailed aftercare instructions. You may be given a compression garment that will help reduce your swelling and will help your chest to heal optimally. You will be able to return to work within about a week, but should avoid heavy lifting or rigorous exercise until your chest is fully healed.
