Male breast reduction involves a combination of surgery and liposuction procedures. If your breasts consist mostly of excess glandular tissue, your surgeon will cut the tissue out with a scalpel. If it’s mostly fatty tissue, on the other hand, your surgeon will use liposuction techniques to remove it.
During the procedure, your surgeon will make an incision on the edge of the nipple or in the underarm area, cutting excess fat, tissue and skin away. He will then cover the incision site with a dressing and apply a chest wrap to keep skin in place.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Before considering gynecomastia surgery, it’s important to make sure that your breast development has stabilized. If you’re overweight or obese, your doctor may recommend losing weight with diet and exercise first. However, if you are an overall healthy male with fairly elastic skin, you may be a good candidate for male breast reduction.
Sometimes, enlarged breasts are caused by taking certain medications, steroids or drugs. If you fall into this category, you may not be a good candidate for male breast reduction. Your surgeon will discuss this with you during your initial consultation.
