The Male Breast Reduction Procedure
Male breast reduction can be performed using liposuction, excision, or a combination of the two techniques. Those whose gynecomastia is caused mainly from excess fatty tissue can benefit from liposuction. This involves the insertion of a long, thin tube called a cannula to remove excess fat.
When glandular breast tissue or excess skin must be removed, excision can help to correct gynecomastia. This technique can also help to reduce the areola and reposition the nipple.
A combination of both liposuction and excision techniques can be used when excess fatty tissue and glandular breast tissue is present.
