Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia surgery) is a procedure to remove excess fat and glandular tissue from the breast, to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest resulting in rejuvenated confidence and personality.

You can opt for male breast reduction surgery if :

  • You have moderately large breasts.

  • Puffy nipples.

  • Wide nipple areola complex.

  • If you have an excess or sagging tissue in the breast/chest due to heavy weight reduction.

Expected Outcome

  • You can have a flatter chest and a more masculine contour.

  • A more confident you.

Procedure

  • The procedure is carried on an outpatient basis under general anaesthesia or under local anesthesia with sedation.

  • You can go home in a couple of hours post surgery.

  • Your excessive breast tissue and fat will be removed with liposuction, excision or a combination of both.

  • Your excess skin will be removed if required.

Post Operation Care

  • A compression vest or a chest wrapping is usually indicated for a week or 2 after surgery to help reduce the swelling.

  • Small tubes are placed near the surgery site to drain off excess fluid which is removed later.
