Gynecomastia, commonly known as male breast reduction, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to reduce excess fat tissue and skin from the male breast. Board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Franklin Richards and Dr. Dean Jabs operating from offices in McLean, VA, and Bethesda, MD, provide this surgery to their patients in Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and other locations. Dr. Jabs and Dr. Richards will make use of gynecomastia before and after pictures during the initial consultation with a new patient. See all Before and After Photos

What is Gynecomastia Before and After Images?

Before and after images in case of male breast reduction refer to a pair or group of photographs belonging to a previous patient who has been through the same surgery with effective results. The images include pictures taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when the full effects of the surgery are visible.

The surgeon will take the pictures with the consent of the patient, and show them to new patients in a discreet manner. The goal of the surgeon is to educate new patients who are seeking gynecomastia cosmetic surgery. The pictures can serve as an effective visual tool during the initial consultation process to explain various aspects of the surgery to a new patient.


Many patients of gynecomastia may not have a very clear idea of how male breast reduction surgery can help them achieve their desired aesthetic goals. Some patients may require only a minor breast reduction through liposuction, while others may need a major surgical excision of fat tissue as well as loose skin. The plastic surgeon may also decide to perform excision surgery as well as liposuction in conjunction for more comprehensive outcomes in some cases.

It can become difficult for a new patient to make the most appropriate choice of treatment. This is where gynecomastia before and after photos can be useful in showing the potential effectiveness of the procedure to the patient. Dr. Jabs and Dr. Richards prefer to use gynecomastia before and after images for their patients in Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and other places.

Having Realistic Expectations

In any cosmetic surgery procedure, patients with a positive outlook, clear aesthetic objectives, and realistic expectations will usually achieve more satisfactory results. Gynecomastia ‘before and after’ photographs can play a useful role in this regard. A new patient will know what the procedure can or cannot do for him when these pictures are shown during the initial consultation.

This mitigates the risk of any misunderstanding for everyone involved, and the patient is saved from any potential disappointment. Before and after images will help him make an informed choice at the very outset.

Web Photos

Some plastic surgeons may choose to provide gynecomastia before and after photos on their official practice website. This provides free access to anyone who wishes to review the pictures and learn more about the procedure. New patients may check out the images even before they decide to visit the surgeon’s office for a personal consultation.
