Male Breast Reduction Surgery (Gynaecomastia)

Male Surgery RevitalizeWhat is Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia)?

Male breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue, fat and sagging skin that lead to the appearance of ‘man boobs’.

Many men are affected by overtly large breasts, in fact over 50% of the male population suffer from this condition in one or both breasts. Breast reduction surgery (Gynecomastia) can resolve this contentious issue for many men.

About male Breast Reduction Surgery (Gynaecomastia)

During Breast Reduction Surgery, an incision is made either on the edge of the nipple (Areola) or in the underarm area allowing your surgeon to remove the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from around the pigmented area surrounding the areola and from the sides and bottom of the breast

The results of gynecomastia surgery are permanent, although subsequent obesity can create a gynecomastia-like effect. In some instances, surgery may be discouraged for overweight men who have not first tried an exercise and diet regimen.

The procedure for male breast reduction takes 1-2 hours, depending on the amount of glandular tissue, fat, and excess skin that needs to be removed.  Gynecomastia is typically performed on an outpatient basis using general or local anesthesia.
