What is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is not a subject that is often associated with men, but a condition that requires it is actually quite common. The medical term gynecomastia means “woman-like breasts.” This condition in one or both breasts affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men. While certain drugs and medical conditions can contribute to breast overdevelopment, most cases do not have a known cause.
Breast reduction surgery can address this problem for men who feel self-conscious about their appearance. Themale breast reduction procedure is designed to remove fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts, and, in rare cases, excess skin. The result is a flatter, firmer chest consistent with a masculine body contour. As with all cosmetic surgery procedures, healing and final results are very individualized.
Male breast reduction surgery can be performed on men of any age who are in good physical and emotional health. The best candidates for this surgery have firm skin with sufficient elasticity to adapt to the body’s improved contours.

In case of swelling or bruises, your Cosmetic Surgeon will prescribe some medicines for relief.
Types of Gynecomastia Surgery / Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Gynecomastia can develop for reasons such as genetics, hormonal imbalances, steroid use, certain medications and herbal remedies, marijuana, and health conditions hormone in nature. Here are the following types of Gynecomastia Surgery
Adult Gynecomastia Surgery
Adult Gynecomastia is simply any man 20 years or older who has adult Gynecomastia developed excess breast tissue causing their chest to take on a more feminine appearance than desired. Its an enlargement of breast tissue in males as the result of an imbalance of the hormones in the body, with somewhat of an excess of female hormones called estrogens, when compared to male hormones called androgens. Gynecomastia is common in men and boys at various stages of development and in association with certain medical conditions. True Gynecomastia refers to enlarged glandular tissue rather than fat (adipose) tissue. The presence of fat tissue that appears in the breast area is known as pseudo Gynecomastia.
Asymmetric Gynecomastia Surgery
Breast asymmetry is the condition when both breasts are not equal in size. In men, Gynecomastia can include only one or both breasts. Unilateral Gynecomastia occurs when only one breast is larger due to Gynecomastia, while the other breast is typically normal in both size and shape. Bilateral Asymmetry occurs when Gynecomastia is present in both breasts, although each to a different degree. The amount of glandular tissue can affect the size, shape, and location on the chest wall of the enlarged area, the size of the areolas, and protrusion and diameter of the nipples.
Unequal or unilateral Gynecomastia is not an uncommon condition. It is more significant when there are very noticeable differences between the two breasts. Often in this case, individuals who suffer from extreme unilateral Gynecomastia have experienced severe psychological effects and developed intense social anxiety. The large, and unequal breast may also interfere with developing intimate, personal relationships. Men who develop even mild cases of Gynecomastia can suffer from low self-esteem, as well as depression.
Severe Gynecomastia Surgery
Severe Gynecomastia Surgery is a condition that may occur at any age. In severe cases, male breasts can be as large as a C or D cup when compared to women. Often men with such large breasts are embarrassed, depressed and may be living with limited social exposure. Men with extremely large breasts tend to avoid places and situations where they have to expose their chest, including intimacy with a partner. Additionally, men in this condition may resort to such drastic measures as binding their chests or even wearing a bra. Large male breasts are perceived by some as an indication of a lack of masculinity.
Especially in cases of obesity, this kind of severe Gynecomastia may manifest with excess skin that requires the need for skin excisions that will leave scars after the male breast reduction procedure is performed.
Many men with severe Gynecomastia have Male Breast Ptosis (also known as drooping breasts) where the areola lies below the lower edge of the pectoral chest muscles. This loose skin and lax tissues are results from aging, loss of muscle mass, and weight loss. When there is excess skin, breast liposuction combined with excision of the gland may not be sufficient. Breast skin excision may be necessary, a procedure called “Mastopexy.”
Pure Glandular Gynecomastia
After evaluating the Gynecomastia type you are suffering with, your plastic surgeon will help you understand the procedure. Generally, the breast tissues are categorized into two kinds – Glandular tissues, which are dense and firm and Fatty tissues, which are soft.
Different persons have different ratios of these fatty tissues. In case of excessive fatty tissues, Liposuction may be needed and if the glandular tissue is more, the excess of it can be surgically removed with a scalpel. In some cases, a combination of both surgeries may be required to treat Gynecomastia. The process starts with making an incision near the breast area and the excess fat is removed. Thereafter, the incison is closed. You will get amazing result in some time after the surgery.
Puffy Nipple Gynecomastia Surgery
“Puffy Nipple Areola Complex” is among the most common forms of gynecomastia. This gland and/or adipose tissue accumulation can be located under the areola or can be slightly extended outside the areola, causing the areola to appear dome shaped.This form of Gynecomastia can be found in all age groups but is more common in young adults.
As each case is different, it is vital that a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in male breast surgery is consulted. The surgeon should determine if the patient is a suitable candidate for male breast reduction by liposuction or glandular excision. It is crucial to have a plastic surgeon who is well-versed in the Gynecomastia condition can determine if there is firm breast tissue beneath the areola that is causing the nipples to project (which is often the case), and if so, how much of this glandular tissue can be removed to create a flat appearance.
Puffy nipple surgery generally takes only an hour or two, and the recovery time is short; sometimes less than a week. There is minimal scarring and the success rate is excellent. Therefore, patients who suffer from “Puffy Nipples“, and who view it as an unaesthetic and unpleasant condition, may desire surgical intervention to correct the “puffy nipple” condition.
