Male Breast Reduction in Toronto

Redefine Your Pecs

Gynecomastia can lead to low self-esteem and diminished self-confidence. Through male breast reduction surgery, you can have a masculine chest that’s buffer and stronger looking.

You have man boobs. Your chest looks like a woman’s, so much so that you could even fill out a bra. It’s deeply embarrassing and you may even get teased about it by other guys. That’s why you never wear thin shirts or go swimming, because you’re constantly trying to hide your chest.

Gynecomastia, the technical term for men with enlarged breasts, is usually caused by increased estrogen activity, decreased testosterone activity, excess fat, or the use of numerous medications. It is a common complaint, accounting for 65% of reported male breast disorders. This condition can occur at any age and can stem from hormonal changes, heredity, or obesity.

You are not alone. Enlarged male breasts occur in 40-60% of men. Once an underlying health condition has been ruled out, your quality of life and mental health can be greatly improved by male breast reduction surgery. While diet, exercise, and avoiding medications that would increase the size of your breast tissue are important components of your health, surgically correcting the problem can offer the greatest chance of success at obtaining a masculine chest.

Why Get Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

  • You want to get rid of your fleshy chest that hides your pecs.
  • You hate how your chest looks like a woman’s.
  • You’ve recently lost a lot of weight and noticed that the skin on your chest sags.
  • Your chest is fat.
  • You want to smooth out folds.
  • You are a bodybuilder who wants to eliminate excess breast tissue caused by anabolic steroids.
  • You’ve tried exercise and diet to firm up your chest, but it didn’t work.

Excellent ratings for satisfaction, scarring and self-confidence

In a study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, men who had male breast reduction surgery rated their experiences on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest score. These average scores were given: 9.1 for overall satisfaction, 9.2 for scars, 9.2 for shape, and 8.9 for improved self-confidence. Based on this study, gynecomastia treatment will provide you with a positive outcome that’s extremely high.

The right surgeon for you

Dr. Ronald Levine has an MDCM (Medicinae Doctor et Chirurgiae Magister), a rare degree that very few surgeons have in the country. It stands for “doctor of medicine and master of surgery”. He is the only plastic surgeon in Toronto to be certified as such. This means that he has been extensively educated and trained, ensuring a level of surgical expertise that surpasses many of his colleagues. His experience of 30+ years in the field further distinguishes him as one of the leading plastic surgeons in the country.

Dr. Levine is a Full Professor in the Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto and the Director of Post-Graduate Surgery. He oversees all of the surgical disciplines at the university. This means that he must remain current with advancements in the field, and continually refine his surgical techniques to provide the safest and most effective options to his patients.

Body contouring specialist

Dr. Levine is highly specialized in surgery of the breast for men and women. He has performed thousands of cosmetic breast procedures. Many of his patients seek improvement of their overall body contour, particularly following dramatic weight loss. As such, your male breast reduction can be performed at the same time as tummy tuck, a popular treatment that can dramatically improve your upper body profile. However, Dr. Levine recognizes that every patient is unique in his concerns as well as his physiology. Your consultation is thorough and tailored to your specific needs. Dr. Levine insists that the decision to undergo plastic surgery should only be made when a patient feels well informed and comfortable with their surgeon and credentials. He will take the time to answer your questions, discuss risks and outcomes, and ensure you are prepared for the recovery process.

Male Breast Reduction Before & After

Dr. Levine's Reviews

Had a breast aug with Dr. Levine. Best decision of my life! They are amazing and I am a 110% satisfied customer. I have been to several other surgeons in Canada and the states, and he is by far the best, hands down. No one has more experience or education than him. I live in BC and will absolutely fly in for my next procedure, he's worth it.

I had the pleasure of having a consult with Dr. Levine in October. After seeing his work on some of my friends. I decided to get a breast augmentation On November 4th. Best decision I have ever made!
He has excellent bedside manner. Answered everything I wanted to know, made the decision in what would best fit my body as I had a tiny frame.
After care, he had seen me a few times to make sure everything was settling alright.
Right after surgery scars were already very minimal. After 6 weeks they already look like almost nothing! Everyone who has seen them have said they are the best job they have every seen!
I would recommend %100 to do your procedure through Dr. levine

I've been to Dr. Levine on 2 separate occasions and I strongly recommend him to every one. I too went based on recommendations, he did breast augmentations on a few of my friends and the end result was beautiful so I decided to give him a try. He's pretty much the boob master. Dr. Levine is definitely an artist, professional and VERY honest. He'll be very upfront with you on whether something will look good or bad as he takes great pride in his work. He's had many years experience in the field and it honestly shows.

I'm a type 1 diabetic and he took extra care of me due to my condition. He made me feel safe, well taken care of and gave me fantastic results after my surgery. I trust him completely and wouldn't go to anyone else.

His secretary, Christy, is also amazing. She attentive, funny and very welcoming. My whole experience with Dr. Levine and his staff was fantastic and highly recommend him to everyone else.

Male Breast Reduction Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get male breast reduction surgery?

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your chest because of overdeveloped breasts and are relatively healthy, then the surgery may be an option for you. Here are some questions that you can ask yourself to determine if this is a suitable treatment:

  • Am I in good health with no active diseases or pre-existing medical conditions?
  • Have I tried other medical treatments to treat my condition but to no avail?
  • Do I smoke?
  • Am I drug-free?
  • Have I maintained a relatively normal weight?
  • Do I live an active and healthy lifestyle?
  • Has my breast development stabilized?
  • Do I shy away from places like public pools, beaches, exercise clubs or any place I will have to bare my chest?
  • Do I worry about being intimate with another person because of my chest?

This surgery can be performed on adolescents but it is preferred that you wait until after puberty.

Can I get this covered by OHIP?

OHIP may cover your treatment. Please talk to Dr. Levine for more information.

Will my breasts grow back?

This is permanent, however the effects of aging and weight gain can influence your results. Please maintain a healthy lifestyle, stay active and avoid specific drugs to prevent this from happening.

How long do I have to wait to see my results?

You might be able to see an improvement immediately, but you should wait for swelling and bruising to subside before seeing the optimal results. At 3-4 months, you’ll have a good idea of how you’ll look.

What are the risks?

As with all surgery, there are risks associated with male breast reduction. These may include:

  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Infection
  • Changes in nipple or breast sensation, which may be temporary or permanent
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding (hematoma)
  • Blood clots
  • Poor wound healing
  • Breast contour and shape irregularities
  • Skin discoloration and permanent pigmentation changes
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Excessive firmness of the breast
  • Potential loss of skin/tissue of breast where incisions meet each other
  • Pain, which may persist
  • Possibility of revision surgery

In a 2015 study of over 73,000 breast surgery patients, the complication rate was 1.9% with hematoma, or excessive bleeding, being the most common complication occurring in 1.1% of the population. This complication can resolve itself or is easily treated in Dr. Levine’s office. Still, the likelihood of a complication occurring in a male breast reduction patient is less than 1 in 35,000.

Using the excision and liposuction techniques, Dr. Levine provides the consistent results and a very low rate of complications for his patients. The rest is largely up to you. Precisely following Dr. Levine’s pre-and post-operative instructions will greatly increase the likelihood that your results will be the best they can be.
