Male Breast Reduction in Edmonton, Alberta

Rediscover your confidence and achieve a more masculine chest contour with our expert male breast reduction procedures in Edmonton, Alberta. Led by the esteemed Dr. Brandon Ball, our practice is dedicated to providing personalized and effective solutions for males experiencing gynecomastia—an enlargement of breast tissue.


Understanding Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction surgery, known medically as gynecomastia surgery, aims to reduce excess breast tissue and restore a firmer, flatter chest appearance. Gynecomastia can result from various causes, including hormonal imbalances, genetics, obesity, or certain medications. This problem significantly impacts the self-confidence and quality of life of many males.


The Procedure Details

Dr. Ball, a Royal College-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience, employs advanced surgical techniques to ensure natural-looking results tailored to each candidate’s unique body structure and aesthetic goals. The procedure generally involves removing excess glandular tissue, fatty tissue, and skin. Depending on the case, Dr. Ball might use liposuction techniques or excision methods.


Surgical Process:

    •    Consultation: Dr. Ball conducts a thorough consultation to understand the patient’s medical history, current condition, and desired outcomes. This meeting covers details such as breast size, breast area, and incision location.

    •    Anesthesia: Surgery is performed under general anesthesia for complete comfort.

    •    Incisions and Tissue Removal: Incisions are strategically placed to minimize visible scars. Dr. Ball removes excess glandular and fatty tissue, sculpting a more masculine chest form. Liposuction may be used for additional contouring.

    •    Skin Tightening: In some instances, excess skin may be removed to ensure a smooth, firm result, often around the areola area.


Recovery and Aftercare

Post-surgery, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which typically diminish over a few weeks. Dr. Ball and his staff provide comprehensive post-operative care instructions to ensure optimal healing and satisfying results.


Typical Recovery Guidelines:    

  • Initial Recovery: Patients usually need a few weeks of rest before resuming normal activities.
  • Compression Garments: Wearing compression garments supports the chest and minimizes swelling.
  • Follow-Up Appointments: Regular follow-ups with Dr. Ball monitor healing progress and address any questions or concerns.


Dr. Ball emphasizes the importance of adhering to post-operative care instructions to achieve the best possible outcomes.
