Achieve a firm and masculine chest

If you suffer from gynecomastia, you know the embarrassment and insecurity that comes with it. You may have tried to hide your condition with loose-fitting clothes, but inevitably, something always gives you away—and you end up feeling humiliated all over again. But the good news is that gynecomastia surgery and pectoral etching procedures can remove the excess breast tissues and help you achieve a firm, sculpted, and chiseled chest.

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the condition of enlarged breasts in men. It can affect one or both breasts. Enlarged breasts in men can be caused by several factors, including obesity, medications, and hormonal conditions. Hormonal conditions can also lead to the growth of breast tissues, leading to social discomfort and embarrassment in men. The condition usually goes away on its own, but in some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the excess tissues.

Am I a suitable candidate for gynecomastia surgery?

If you’re considering surgery, it’s important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing gynecomastia surgery. There are a few things that will make you a good candidate for surgery. First, you should have excess breast tissue that is causing you embarrassment or physical discomfort. Second, you should be in good physical health. And third, you should have realistic expectations for the results of the surgery.

Your personalized gynecomastia surgery journey in Michigan


There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to gynecomastia, so your consultation is important. During your consultation, Dr. Khan will evaluate your condition, discuss your options, and determine if your male breasts are caused by excess fatty tissues or excess glandular tissues. He will also ask about your concerns and lifestyle and recommend the ideal surgical techniques for you. Based on this, they’ll develop a personalized treatment plan for you, which may include liposuction and pectoral etching.


Gynecomastia surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Once you are asleep, the surgeon will make an incision in your chest and remove excess breast tissues. He may also perform liposuction, which involves using a specialized cannula to suction away excess fat tissues from the breasts. In some cases, the surgeon will strategically remove fat deposits from the edges of the pectoralis muscles and axilla to make the pectoral muscles look more defined. Finally, the incisions will be closed with stitches.


After surgery, you’ll need to take it easy for a few days. You’ll likely have some bruising and swelling, and you’ll need to wear a compression garment to support your chest. Most people take about two weeks off from work to recover. There are a few potential risks and complications associated with gynecomastia surgery, but they’re rare. These include infection, bleeding, and a small risk of asymmetry. Please follow Dr. Khan’s post-treatment recovery guidelines to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications.
