What is it?
Gynecomastia, also known as male breast reduction surgery is a common condition that increases the amount of breast gland tissue in teenage boys and older men. While not a serious problem, it can be a difficult condition to cope with and could lead to embarrassment.
Gynecomastia is a condition that makes the breast tissue of boys and men swell. This often occurs due to an imbalance of hormones in the body, causing the breasts to develop more than they normally would. This can happen in younger boys but also develops in older men as testosterone levels drop.
For many men, the appearance of swollen breast tissue can be unsightly. While it can go away on its own, male chest reduction surgery is the most reliable and efficient way to deal with gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia surgery will generally be performed by using liposuction. This involves general anaesthesia before making a small incision on either side of the chest. The exact location will depend on your specific chest and where the scar will be least apparent. Once the incision is made, excess fat and/or glandular tissue is removed while also sculpting the chest and tightening the skin.
In severe cases of gynecomastia, surgical tissue excision may be required for the best results. Patients that havestretched or sagging skin around the chest may also require this approach.
