Men, who exhibit gynecomastia (the appearance of enlarged, feminine looking breasts), turn to a trusted and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Erick Sanchez to surgically sculpt their chest and restore a masculine appearance. Gynecomastia often starts in puberty and can be caused by liver dysfunction, thyroid problems or hormonal imbalances. This condition is not a matter of poor diet or lack of exercise. Baton Rouge plastic surgeon, Dr. Sanchez, has a proven record in male breast reduction surgery and successfully restores confidence by giving men with gynecomastia a more muscular, powerful chest appearance through removal of excessive breast tissue and fat.

"Dr. Sanchez is very straight to the point with you but very nice and respectful. He did such an amazing job with my abdominoplasty!! After having the gastric sleeve July of 2016 and losing around 123lbs, I had what Dr. Sanchez found out in surgery was a total of 7lbs of excess skin from my entire mid section. He completely removed all excess skin, a tummy tuck on the inside and even lifted my flanks and thighs. My figure is now what it's suppose to be which is an hourglass shape!!"- R.M. / Healthgrades / Aug 15, 2017
"Great surgeon creating awesome results!! - After reviewing several plastic surgeons on various websites and medical review sites, I was not impressed by the before/after photos or reviews. I then came across Dr. Sanchez's site through a sponsored Facebook ad and made the call. The ladies there are just awesome!

Men who are self-conscious because of larger than normal breasts are candidates for this surgery. Our doctor will provide a thorough assessment to establish if gynecomastia is the condition causing the enlargement. Men should be at or near a healthy weight and have relatively good skin tone. If the excessive breast tissue has stretched the skin, a skin tightening technique will be incorporated during the surgery.
What to Expect
During surgery, our surgeon will use liposuction to remove excess breast tissue an will trim away any skin that shows sagging. In most cases, the incision is made around the areola, which helps minimize scarring. For extreme cases, additional surgical consideration may be made such as a lift, nipple repositioning or skin grafting. It is normal to have bruising and swelling around the chest area for the first couple of weeks. A compression garment must be worn for about 2 weeks to help with reshaping and healing. Men who suffer from gynecomastia often want to begin lifting weights to help accentuate the overall outcome. This is encouraged, but must be avoided for at least 6-8 weeks or until clearance has been given by our staff.
Male breast reduction surgery will vary in cost depending on the complexity of the surgical case. This surgery cost starts at $4,000 and varies according to patient. Some things to consider that may affect cause include liposuction, skin tightening, nipple repositioning, skin grafting, etc.
