Male Breast Reduction/Gynecomastia Surgery
Gynecomastia is enlargement of the glandular tissue in the male breasts. Pseudogynecomastia or Lipomastia is fat deposition without glandular proliferation. Gynecomastia can be bilateral or unilateral
Gynecomastia Surgery is an effective and safe surgery to correct overdeveloped or enlarged male breasts, to provide a masculine chest appearance.
Male Breast Reduction treatment includes liposuction, excision or a combination of both procedures. Surgical choice depends on the skin shrinkage after surgery.
a) Liposuction Technique or Fat Removal surgery: is done, if there is excess fatty tissue in male boobs. It involves insertion of a cannula (thin hollow tube) through small incisions. The fat is loosened and extracted by vacuum suction.
b) Excision : of glandular breast tissue and/or skin is recommended in large male breasts since Glandular breast tissue is denser than fatty tissue and unsuitable for liposuction. It corrects breast reduction for men and reduces the areola or repositions the nipple, to match the male chest. Puffy nipples associated with enlarged male breast can be treated by liposuction and gland excision through circum-areolar incision.
Irrespective of the technique used, the primary goal of gynecomastia surgery is to restore a normal male chest contour and to correct deformities of the breast, nipple or areola.

The primary goal of gynecomastia treatment is to reduce breast size in men who are embarrassed about their large breasts. Treatment of Gynecomastia is either by Liposuction or Gland Excision or both. The procedure is done in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia, or through intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. It may take about 1.3 hours to 3 hours to complete the procedure. A scar from gynecomastia surgery varies, depending on the amount of fat, glandular breast tissue, and skin elasticity. Majority of the scars are inconspicuous.
Gynaecomastia surgery is safe in the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon. Possible signs of “temporary” bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness, and/or a burning sensation can be noticed post breast reduction surgery
Other risks may include infection, fluid build-up, injury to the skin, rippling or loose skin, asymmetry, pigmentation changes, excessive scarring with excision technique, loss of nipple sensation, and contour irregularities. In some cases a second procedure may be needed to remove additional tissue.
Please note that all surgical procedures have some degree of risk ranging from mild infections to life threatening conditions including death. The risks and safety measures should be fully discussed prior to your consent. It’s important that you clarify all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon before going ahead for the surgery.
The patient may go back to work after a week. Strenuous activity can be resumed after three weeks. Most of the swelling and bruising usually disappears in three to six months of the surgery. The results are permanent until one maintains a healthy lifestyle & stable weight. Weight gain may once again lead to enlarged breasts in men. For a safe and healthy outcome, it’s important to have a regular follow-up evaluation at prescribed intervals and whenever you notice any changes. Do not hesitate to contact your doctor when you have any questions or concerns especially during the post-operative recovery period.
