GYNECOMASTIA – MALE BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
Enlarged male breasts is a common issue and can affect men of any age, it does cause inferiority complex for many and the lack of self-esteem. Yes, it can psychologically affect men. The Surgeon will successfully remove this issue through a surgery of two procedures which is a fat removal and the removal of inflamed glands.

Male breasts consist of two types of tissue. One of these, fatty tissue forms, makes up almost the entire breast in men. There is also a tissue that we call the gland tissue.
Topic 1: Do I Qualify for Gynecomastia Procedure?
We recommend gynecomastia procedure only when it’s the right course of action for our patients. Our goal is to help to patients achieve the results they desire but in a safe manner. You may be a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery if:
- You have tried alternative medical treatments, but they’ve proven ineffective in treating the condition
- You are self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts
- You experience discomfort as the breast tissue is tender and sore
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
- Your breasts are fully developed
- You are able to maintain a stable weight in order to keep up the results of your surgery
Topic 2: The Procedure.
Gynecomastia is best managed with a combination liposuction and minor surgical excision of breast tissue. Again, the areas to be suctioned are marked preoperatively with the patient in the sitting position.
The placement of the incisions for the liposuction is similar to minor cases, usually well hidden in tissue folds and creases. The incision to remove the breast tissue is made around the lower part of the areola at the junction between the red areola skin and the surrounding white skin.
Generally one to two access incisions are made on each breast to ensure complete removal of the unwanted tissue. Once the liposuction is completed, a firm mass of residual breast tissue remains under the nipple-areola complex. Through the small areolar incision, the tissue is removed and the incision closed with sutures.
Topic 3: The Recovery.
During your gynecomastia procedure recovery period, dressings or bandages will be applied to your incisions and a compressed chest garment will be used to minimize swelling and support your new chest contour as it heals after procedure.
You will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for the surgical site and drains, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.
