Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size in men, flattening and enhancing the chest contours to deliver a more masculine appearance. A male breast reduction procedure typically involves liposuction and surgical removal of fat and glandular tissue. Incisions are made near the pigmented areas of the nipple. Scars are well hidden after the surgery. In severe cases, excess tissue and excess skin may also be removed.
In severe cases of gynecomastia, the excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola. In these cases the position and size of the areola can also be surgically reduced to improve appearance.
Plastic surgery to correct gynecomastia is called reduction mammaplasty. Gynecomastia is a condition of overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of age related hormonal changes, heredity, obesity or the side effect of certain drug usage. Corrective surgery can enhance self confidence and create a more flattering appearance.
