Breast Reduction for Men (Gynecomasty)
Breast reduction for men is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men. Abnormal enlargement of breasts in men can occur due to various reasons. Pharmacological, hormonal, and genetic factors are diagnosed initially after examination by the surgeon and then it will be treated. Treatment can be associated with only one lipolysis or liposuction or using subcutaneous mastectomy. Dr. Varasteh Kia will discuss with you to select the appropriate method before surgery.
Liposuction method requires insertion of a cannula, a thin hollow tube, through several small incisions. 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.
Subcutaneous mastectomy is recommended where glandular breast tissue or excess skin must be removed to correct gynecomastia. This method also is necessary if the areola will be reduced, or the nipple repositioned to a more natural male contour.
