Men of all ages and body mass indexes can experience gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. This condition can occur with one or both breasts, resulting in localized increase of tissue or fat, often accompanied by sagging or changes to the areolas. There are a variety of causes of male gynecomastia, but the most effective treatment is male breast reduction surgery. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer male gynecomastia surgery to reduce and transform breasts for men at our clinic in the greater Washington, DC, metro area.

Causes of Gynecomastia

There is not one specific cause of gynecomastia. Male breast enlargement can occur with weight gain, but it can also occur without weight gain and in men of all ages. The breasts can become larger with excess glandular and fat issues, as well as extra skin. The breast tissue can sag, elongating or distorting the areola size. Some of the possible causes of gynecomastia include:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Weight gain
  • Genetics
  • Medication side effect

Regardless of the cause of gynecomastia, many men can be self-conscious of the appearance of larger male breasts. A breast reduction surgery, or male gynecomastia surgery, can restore a more masculine appearance to the chest.

Male gynecomastia surgery removes excess fat and breast tissue, as well as excess skin. The procedure can reform the male breasts with the desired firmness and contours and reshape the areola if necessary. Dr. Maia has successfully reduced male breast tissue and reshaped the chest tissue on many of her male patients with outstanding, natural results.

If you are a man that is experiencing gynecomastia and want to explore cosmetic surgery to reduce and reshape your chest, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a private consultation with Dr. Maia to discuss male gynecomastia surgery at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
