Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia)

Many men suffer from a condition known as gynaecomastia, or ‘feminisation’ of the male breast. In this condition extra fat and breast tissue accumulate in the chest area, giving the male an unnatural feminine fullness to their chest. Gynaecomastia can occur secondarily as a result of several medical conditions or certain drugs. Alternatively, it may occur without any predisposing factor. Either way, it is a condition that can be very embarrassing for many men.

 

It can easily be treated with a male breast reduction procedure. During this treatment, excess fat is either removed with liposuction (+/- VASER liposculpture) or via a combination approach involving direct excision and liposuction. In the latter, a scar is usually hidden around the perimeter of the areola.
