Dr. Schlesinger understands that you lead a busy, active life and wants his patients to get back to work and to the beach with no shirt on very, very quickly after surgery.
We use ultrasound (the kind physical therapists use for sore muscles) post-operatively to improve the outcome and speed the healing process. We also recommend our patients use DMSO, a wood-derived product that is popular with athletes to decrease bruising and swelling. (Rumor has it that Tour de France riders bathe in this stuff.) Interestingly, DMSO is actually a horse linament, but Dr. Schlesinger adds a special ingredient to make it tolerable to human skin. Our gynecomastia patients start using this the night of surgery, and it helps reduce bruising and swelling at an impressive rate.
When choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your male breast reduction, one should always choose a Board-Certified plastic surgeon that has the privilege to do male breast reductions at a local hospital. Cosmetic surgeries, including male breast reductions, are usually done in surgicenters, and not in hospitals. S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS is a Board-Certified plastic surgeon with cosmetic surgery privileges at Queen’s Hospital, but he performs most surgeries at his new surgicenter at Hale Pawaa. Dr. Schlesinger is a graduate of the Medical College of Virginia and has received awards in the form of Hawaii Medical Association Physician of the Year, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and even received the Patients’ Choice and Compassionate Doctor certifications.

I struggled with gynecomastia my whole life and the procedure to get it removed went better than I ever imaged. My confidence and overall demeanor skyrocketed and I feel like a brand new person. Dr. Schlesinger and his staff were so kind, understanding, and respectful during the whole process and I strongly recommend going with them for whatever procedure you may be looking for. My only regret is not getting it done sooner!
Being a man and having gynecomastia can be very embarrassing but his office and staff always made me feel very comfortable about the procedure that I needed to have done. It’s been a few months since my surgery and I’m very happy with the results, I can no longer feel embarrassed about taking off my shirt or going to the beach. The psychological relief has made all the difference in the world. Thank you Dr Schlesinger.
I got gynecomastia surgery from Dr. Schlesinger in August and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. If you are still debating on if you should do it or not, look no further! Dr Schlesinger is your guy.
I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with the entire staff at Dr. Schlesinger’s office. From the very first consultation to our last post-op appointment, they have been nothing but courteous, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process. From keeping in contact, to answering all of our questions promptly, and following up with us post surgery, they are by far one of the best medical staff we had the pleasure of working with.
Dr. Schlesinger and his staff are true professionals. I had Gynecomastia surgery 2 weeks ago and I cannot be anymore happy with the results (fast and painless). I highly recommend him for anyone looking to have this procedure.
Dr. Larry is honestly the best when it comes to gynocomastia surgery for men! From the consultation to the post-op follow ups, he and his staff have been nothing but helpful and professional. The surgery itself was quick and easy, with a short downtime afterward. You can’t beat the results!
Anyone considering gynecomastia surgery should go to Dr. Schlesinger. The process is not as bad as you would imagine, and the staff is amazing. I am very happy with my surgery.
