Reduction of breast overgrowth (gynecomastia) relieves embarassing breast excess for men.
While it is normal for adolescent men to develop a small amount of breast enlargement, often tender, this condition usually resolves by age 14-15. When it persists, surgery for gynecomastia can help to restore a masculine chest shape. Depending on the amount of tissue to be removed, a small incision is made to remove the redundant part of the breast tissue. Dr. Grenga performs the PECS procedure which combines direct excision of the excess breast tissue with liposuction contouring of the entire pectoral area. This is performed at our Center, as an outpatient, for most men.
In adult men, many conditions can give rise to enlarged breasts. Certain medications, some medical conditions, and in some instances no specific cause is responsible for this problem. If the main component of the enlargement is fatty tissue, Dr. Grenga can remove the excess with liposuction to further help decrease visibilty of the scar.
When I first considered breast enlargement, I wasn't sure that it was the thing for me. I just wanted to restore the breasts that I had before bearing my two children.
After the kids came, I gradually lost about two cup sizes. Thanks to you, I have been pleased to have my figure back. This has made me very glad that I made the decision to go ahead with the operation.
I cannot say enough good things about my entire experience with Dr. Grenga and his staff. Dr. Grenga has made a difference in my looks ( 10 years+ younger ). His expertise as well as his bedside manner have made a positive difference in my life.

They say pictures can say a thousand words but the first one that came to mind after looking at these before & after’s is wow. You have made such a difference in how I look and feel about myself. I look forward to a continued relationship with you and your staff at the Chesapeake Center for Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. Many thanks!
You performed a tummy tuck on me three months ago and the results are terrific! I personally want to thank him for the job well done. His staff and Dr. Grenga take the time with you and make your whole surgery experience wonderful. If I ever need anything else done to my body, Dr. Grenga will be doing it.
I feel now that I wished that I had my breast reduction operation a long time ago. I cannot believe that I waited so long for this and suffered for so many years. I feel so much better and have enjoyed exercising again because my back and breasts no longer hurt. My clothes fit so much better as well. You were right-it has made a remarkable difference in my appearance but I want you to know that it has made a difference in my outlook as well. I feel years younger!
