Male Breast Reduction

Men can have undesirable breast growth from several causes. Most typical is having a genetic tendency. Gynecomastia from puberty usually goes away on its own in a few years. Breast development that doesn’t go away on its own can be treated. Other causes are certain drugs and medications and medical conditions. It is important to first determine the cause of the gynecomastia before proceeding with surgery to try to prevent recurrence.

Simple gynecomastia involving just fat in that region is treated with liposuction. The incisions are hidden along the edge of the areola or in the armpit.

Gynecomastia with actual breast tissue requires that the tissue be surgically removed. This is usually done with an incision part way around the areola, which is an area that typically scars very well and becomes difficult to see. Since men can get breast cancer too, any breast tissue removed is sent to pathology.

Patients with excess tissue AND a lot of skin, can require removal of the excess skin. Here the incisions are around the areola and then in the fold under the breast.
