Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
Male breast reduction surgery is the surgical correction of overdeveloped or enlarged breast tissue in men, a condition called gynecomastia. Overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men are a common condition and can occur at any age. It can be more noticeable in fit men with little body fat and can impair confidence and cause emotional distress in men of any age or body type. This can influence clothing and activity choice and impair physical intimacy out of embarrassment.
Male breast reduction surgery is dependent upon the amount of breast tissue and the amount of skin excess. If there is little skin excess, power-assisted liposuction alone may be all that is require with minimal incisions. If the breast tissue is limited to the areola, it may be removed through direct excision via a camouflaged scar at the areolar border. Large amounts of excess skin and breast tissue may require larger incisions and a visible scar.
Male breast reduction surgery is also a highly individualized procedure with a treatment plan developed based on anatomy, goals, and lifestyle. It is highly recommended to have this procedure performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon to maximize safety and cosmetic outcome.
