Do you know the facts about Gynecomastia?

Dr. Douglas Steinbrech specializes in male breast reduction (gynecomastia) surgery in NYC. Gynecomastia is the condition of enlarged male breast tissue, commonly treated with male breast reduction surgery. Also, known as man boobs, it effects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of the male population. Oversized breasts in men can cause embarrassment, emotional distress, low self-esteem, as well as avoidance of intimacy. Good news is, there are available male breast reduction procedures available for men in the New York City area.

Gynecomastia is regarded as:

  • Excess localized fat
  • Excess glandular tissue development
  • A combination of both excess fat and glandular tissue
  • The aforementioned may be present in one of or both breasts

Gynecomastia surgery can help by restoring a flatter, firmer appearance to the male chest. Prior to surgery, patients should be checked to see if there is any medical cause of their gynecomastia. Male breast enlargement effects men of all ages in NYC. Causes of gynecomastia include side effects of certain drugs, disease, hereditary conditions, and/or hormonal changes.


Gynecomastia surgery is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. There are several different methods that can be performed depending on the severity of each patient’s condition.
