Male Breasts (Gynaecomastia)

REDEFINE AND RESHAPE THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR CHEST.
RESTORE YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE IN GOING TO THE GYM.

Male breasts, also known as gynaecomastia, is a condition whereby men have abnormally developed mammary glands or overdeveloped breast tissue.

It is often very troubling for men who may go to great lengths to disguise their chest. Treatment for gynaecomastia can involve the surgical removal of the excess breast tissue or the use of liposuction, depending on the extent of gland versus fat. The goal is to provide a tight chest with no excess tissue.

An important aspect in this surgery is to provide nearly imperceptible scars. Dr Shortt uses small incisions which are well hidden. Most men would have no concerns swimming at the beach or pool as the scar will not be noticeable to others. An additional technique that Dr Shortt has refined is to perform liposuction underneath the pectorals major muscle at the same time.

This helps to really define and shape the muscle making your chest look more sculpted. Together with Dr Shortt, you will discuss a surgical course of action, which will include a medical history to determine if there are other causes for the development of your gynaecomastia. In general, patients who have undergone treatment for gynaecomastia are very pleased and find a lot more confidence showing off their chest.

Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

In general, candidates for gynaecomastia surgery are aged 18 – 65 years, are in good health and are able to have general anaesthetic, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

N

abnormally developed mammary glands

N

overdeveloped or excess breast tissue (fat or gland)

N

asymmetry of the breasts (they appear to be different sizes)

N

feel embarrassed about the appearance of their chest

What is the recovery time?

In general, the recovery time following a gynaecomastia procedure is approximately 2-4 weeks. If liposuction is performed, a compression garment may be recommended for 4-6 weeks, but this does not prevent you from exercising. As with any surgery under general anaesthetic, there are potential risks or complications to consider. During your private consultation, Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical options, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, discuss what to expect pre and post gynaecomastia surgery, and your estimated recovery time.

Reviews

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results! Dr. Shortt and his staff are wonderful and very talented. I definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns, and he lets you know what’s possible and what isn’t – he will never do something that will make you look fake or “done.” Dr. Shortt likes to say that he will make you into a better version of yourself, not someone else. He goes above and beyond to achieve your goals and truly cares about his patients.

I had a septorhinoplasty done to correct my breathing and the appearance of my nose. I have always been insecure about the size and shape of my nose – I had a bit of a bulbous tip and a prominent dorsal hump. I am so thrilled with the results of my surgery! In addition to breathing better, I am also feeling a lot more confident. I used to freak out if anyone took a photo of me from the side, but now I actually encourage it!

The support staff at Briarwood are wonderful, too. They make the experience comfortable and easy.

I am extremely happy that I finally took this step

I just want to say Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased! The care I received prior to, during, and after my surgery has been great. Dr. Shortt and the stuff at Briarwood cosmetic surgical centre have been very thorough and detail oriented when tending to my needs, concerns and questions. I am extremely happy that I finally took this step and LOVE my results. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and am glad I chose Dr. Shortt for my surgery.

Dr Shortt did an awesome job

I recently had a breast reduction and am so happy with the final result – Dr Shortt did an awesome job!

Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.

Best Choice I Made!

The stretch marks, loose skin and a deformed belly button from my twin pregnancy really affected my self confidence. Dr. Shortt helped me get that “old me” feeling back! He is patient, professional and truly cares for you during the recovery process. I always felt that Dr. Shortt and his team were there when I needed questions answered. Before I went for my surgery, I had no idea how important the weeks and months after would be. Now, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Dr. Shortt to be my doctor. He also makes sure that you know what to expect and that made the journey so much easier for me. Best choice I made! I finally feel like myself again.

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt and his professional staff. The entire experience was more than I had hoped it would be. From beginning consultation to follow-up visits. Dr. Shortt and his staff are highly recommended for any results you are hoping to achieve. This team is the very best!
