Chest reduction (Gynecomastia)

Chest can be significantly enlarged, which represents a serious esthetic and psychological problem for a man. Chest growth can appear for several reasons. Due to increase in gland tissue on male breasts, due to prevalence of female hormone (estrogen) in adolescence or due to build up of fat on chest. The result of both tissue build up is that chest seem as female and are significantly enlarged. Esthetic surgery of removal can be done in both cases, glandular (gynecomasty) or fat build up.

Chest reduction (Gynecomastia)

How is male breast reduction surgery done?

If it is mostly fat deposits, the procedure of chest reduction is done by liposuction. In such cases the fat is sucked out through very thin channels through an incision of 5 mm, so that scars are almost invisible after the surgery. If beside fat deposits there is also glandular tissue, beside liposuction, glandular tissue must be removed surgically. The incision is made on the nipple line, and the glandular tissue or fat is removed through the small incision, which is almost invisible after suturing. During this procedure we can also correct the nipples on the chest, if they are too big. Chest reduction is commonly done under general anesthesia.
