Breast Reduction for Men
Male breast reduction is different from breast reduction for females. The scar is usually limited to the lower half of the areola. The amount of tissue removed is usually quite small and consists of a small ‘disc’ of gland that is located under the areola. Liposuction is an important part of breast reduction in men since there is often a significant element of fat in the chest wall surrounding the gland. The areola usually does not need to be reduced in size and the nipple does not to be lifted.
In severe cases of gynecomastia and after MWL, there may be a need to remove a significant amount of breast gland as well as skin and to lift the nipple and shape the breast.
Gynecomastia excision is a popular procedure for men who want to look and feel more masculine, be able to go shirtless and be able to wear tight fitting tops.
