What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia surgery is essentially a male breast reduction surgery. It is used to treat a condition called gynecomastia that is characterized by overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men. Gynecomastia can develop in men of all ages. While it is often the result of hormonal changes within the body, gynecomastia can also be caused by obesity, heredity, and certain medications.
Men with gynecomastia have localized fat with excessive glandular tissue in the breast area. This extra mass is sometimes accompanied by excess breast skin. In extreme cases of gynecomastia, the excess tissue may actually create sagging and stretching in the skin around the nipple.
Is Male Breast Reduction Right for Me?
If you’re considering gynecomastia surgery, you’ve probably been living with discomfort for quite some time. This condition can rob you of your confidence. It’s very common for men living with gynecomastia to avoid taking off their shirts in front of other people. A good candidate for gynecomastia surgery is any man who feels unhappy about his enlarged breast tissue. Ideally, a candidate will be in general good health. It’s also important to be of a healthy weight that is close to your goal weight when considering this surgery. Gynecomastia surgery is not a weight-loss surgery. While it can create a sleeker, fitter appearance, the goal of the surgery is to correct an overgrowth of tissue in a specific area of the body.

2. Male Breast Reduction Surgery
There are actually three options for performing male breast reductions. These options are gynecomastia liposuction, the excision technique, or a combination of liposuction and excision. Your surgeon will help you to discover the best option based on your expectations.
- Gynecomastia Liposuction
Liposuction is commonly used when gynecomastia is the result of excess fatty tissue. During gynecomastia liposuction, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted through several small incisions. The cannula is then moved back and forth to loosen and suction out fat.
- Excision Technique
An excision technique is usually recommended when it’s necessary to remove glandular breast tissue and skin. Excision will also be recommended if it’s necessary to alter the nipple and areola to create what resembles a natural male contour of the chest. Excision requires incisions around the areola and chest.
Combining Gynecomastia Surgery Techniques
Gynecomastia is commonly treated with a combination of liposuction and excision. Combining the two can remove fat while also lifting and contouring the chest. The techniques used for both liposuction and excision can be tailored to create your desired aesthetic effect. If you have a large amount of excessive skin that requires removal, more incisions will be needed. While every attempt is made to make incisions in discreet places to reduce scarring, correcting more extreme cases of gynecomastia generally leads to more visible scarring compared to minor corrections.
Male Breast Reduction Recovery Process
Recovery following gynecomastia surgery is very similar to the recovery process for any form of breast augmentation. Tubes may be used to drain your incisions of fluid immediately after surgery. In addition, your chest will be wrapped in bandages when you wake up from surgery. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are all normal following surgery. Many patients find that wearing compression garments for three to four weeks following surgery greatly reduces swelling and discomfort. Generally, swelling will subside after one to two weeks. Most patients can expect to comfortably return to work within a week of having gynecomastia surgery. While you may be cleared to perform some light exercise within a week, all vigorous activity should be avoided for four to six weeks.
When Will I See the Gynecomastia Surgery Results?
Your chest will be lighter from the moment you exit surgery. However, swelling and fluid buildup can make it difficult to see your results. Expect full results to be enjoyed anywhere from a month to three months following surgery.

GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY FAQS
Both options come with pros and cons. Liposuction gynecomastia surgery provides fat reduction and contouring without the need for large incisions. However, liposuction alone can’t address excess skin and glandular tissue. Combining both is often the best option when you need reconstructive male breast surgery due to excess skin.
The extent of your scarring will vary based on the technique used. Liposuction scars are often nearly invisible. However, scarring may be unavoidable if you’re having an excision technique done to change the placement of the nipples. Every attempt is made to make scars as concealed as possible.
Yes, it is possible for gynecomastia to return after reduction surgery. While cases of recurring gynecomastia are rare, this is an important topic to discuss with your surgeon when deciding if gynecomastia surgery is right for you.
Surgery is considered the most effective way to treat serious cases of gynecomastia. In some cases, a CoolSculpting procedure that freezes fat may help to reduce unwanted chest fat without surgery.
