Are there good surgeons in your area?
Healthy male patients with excess breast tissue or unwanted breast development who have no underlying breast disease.Men who desire improved physical and aesthetic appearance should have realistic expectations based on their condition and the procedure performed. You should meet with a board certified plastic surgeon to be able to get a formal diagnosis and to be able to decide on a course of treatment if necessary.
Selecting a Surgeon in a Different Country
In addition to a one-on-one consultations with a board certified Plastic Surgeon, patients always need to be seen by their primary care doctor prior to such procedures. We screen every patient and their medical records for risks of blood clots (DVT) and then take appropriate measure.Therefore, it may be in your best interest to not #travel out of the country for such procedures. Unless, you know the doctor or facility where the procedures take place well or have a previous experience with them, there is an increased chance of problems, #complications, or #emergencies which may lack the necessary attention as you would acquire easier within the United States.

In your case, breast reduction surgery will likely involve excision of skin, as well as breast and adipose tissue. I would also recommend reduction of nipple/areola complexes and moving them superiorly (as a graft).
You would be wise to have the procedure performed by board-certified plastic surgeon in your area. Nothing replaces in person evaluation when it comes to clinical follow-up and treatment of any complications that may arise.
You will find much discussion of options on this website and on the attached link as well. Best wishes.
Dominican Rep for gynecomastia surgery?
Thanks for your question. Based on your photo, it looks as if you have excess breast tissue, excess chest fat and loose skin. It is likely that you need liposuction, breast tissue removal and skin removal. If you live in the US, I recommend you have your surgery here. Meeting with a board certified plastic surgeon is the best way to begin your surgical process. Recovery and post operative care will be important to you results. I suggest that you do this close to home.
