Male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia in Hopkinsville for Western Kentucky

Cosmetic surgery for men becomes more popular every year as more of them hear about the powerful benefits of surgery and decide to try a procedure themselves. With international training from prestigious sources and professional experience, Dr. George R. Valentini offers many different surgical procedures specially adapted to the needs of male patients, including male breast reduction for gynecomastia, at his office in Hopkinsville serving Western Kentucky. Dr. Valentini is a leader in the field of cosmetic surgery, recognized nationally and internationally for his expertise and artistry. His male patients benefit from care that meets the highest standards of excellence.

Male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) may be linked to puberty, obesity, aging, hormone deficiencies, or any number of other causes, but in any case it can be a source of insecurity for men of all ages. Fortunately, men who are concerned about gynecomastia can turn to male breast reduction surgery.

At his Hopkinsville practice serving Western Kentucky, Dr. Valentini uses surgical techniques specially tailored to the needs of men with enlarged breasts to remove excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue and sculpt more masculine contours in the chest area. This tissue is removed through incisions made as discreetly as possible around the nipple, in the armpit, or in the crease under the breast to minimize visible scarring. Each male breast reduction patient's needs are unique, so Dr. Valentini works with his clients to develop treatment plans that best meets those needs.

After undergoing male breast reduction surgery to correct gynecomastia at Dr. Valentini's Western Kentucky office in Hopkinsville, patients should expect several weeks of recovery. Most men are able to return to work after one to two weeks, but it is important to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for a couple weeks more while the chest heals. For the first few weeks after surgery, male breast reduction patients typically need to wear a compression bandage around the chest to reduce swelling and speed the healing process.


Men are often concerned about the appearance of their noses. A nose that is too large, too small, or misshapen can throw off the balance of the entire face, affecting a man's self-confidence and the perceptions of other people. Using the latest rhinoplasty techniques, Dr. Valentini is able to reshape the nose to better fit the rest of the face.

When performing rhinoplasty, Dr. Valentini sculpts the underlying bone and cartilage of the nose in order to change its shape and size. By removing excess tissue, he can bring an overly large nose down to a more normal size. Using artificial implants or transplanted cartilage from elsewhere in the body, he can also build up and modify the nose to produce a more masculine appearance. Rhinoplasty can also be used to correct a nose that has healed improperly after an injury.


As men age, their facial skin tends to droop, sag, and lose elasticity, creating wrinkles and loose folds of skin. These facial symptoms contribute to an appearance of age that makes many men uncomfortable with their looks.

Facelift surgery is a popular solution to the problem of wrinkles and aging skin. Through incisions concealed behind the hairline, Dr. Valentini can lift and tighten the facial skin and underlying muscles to counteract the effects of time. After recovering from facelift surgery, men appear younger, healthier, and better rested than they did before surgery.


Liposuction is one of the most powerful and versatile procedures available from Dr. Valentini. The precise nature of liposuction allows Dr. Valentini to use it in many areas of the body. It can be incorporated into male breast reduction surgery for gynecomastia and a variety of other procedures, or it can be used as a standalone body sculpting treatment to treat stubborn pockets of fat. Men can turn to liposuction to remove fat obscuring the abdominal muscles, tone the chest or back, and sculpt the legs and arms.
