Gynecomastia (Male breast reduction)



Is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. In cases where gynecomastia is primarily the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction techniques alone may be used. This requires insertion of a cannula, in which the cannula is moved back and forth in a controlled motion to loosen the excess fat, which is then removed from the body by vacuum suction. Cases may differ, in which excision techniques are required in order to reduce the glandular breast tissue and excess skin for a more natural male contour.
