In many cases, however, despite diet and exercise efforts, gynaecomastia can persist, affecting men of all ages. Gynecomastia can be a source of shame, embarrassment and self-consciousness for many men.

Male breast reduction surgery offers a permanent solution by removing excess glandular tissue and fat. The procedure also helps to sculpt a more contoured, masculine chest. But for many men it’s not just about the physical changes – it’s also about restoring confidence and enhancing their quality of life.

What Happens During Gynaecomastia Surgery?

Male Chest Reduction Surgery Process

Known medically as gynaecomastia surgery, the procedure involves the surgical excision of excess tissue (which can be glandular or fat) from the male breast to achieve a more contoured chest appearance.

During the procedure, a small incision is typically made below the nipple or in the underarm area, through which the surgeon removes the unwanted tissue.

This surgical approach aims to reduce the size of the male breast and improve its shape. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure.

Your Plastic Surgeon May Use Advanced Surgical Technique

Depending on the severity of your gynaecomastia, the surgical procedures may vary, with some cases requiring liposuction in addition to glandular tissue excision for optimal results.

After the excess tissue is removed and the chest is sculpted to a more masculine contour, the incisions are meticulously closed with sutures. The ultimate goal of your surgeon is to make the incisions as discreetly as possible to minimise visible scarring.

Recovery Time Post Male Breast Surgery

As a gynecomastia patient you can expect your recovery to take approximately 1-2 weeks. You will be advised on proper wound care, pain relief and instructed on activities to avoid during your recovery.

Additionally, post-operative care will include wearing a compression garment to support the chest after your cosmetic procedure to ensure a speedy healing process and to help reduce swelling.

You should be able to resume your life and normal activities a few weeks after surgery.

Can Male Breasts Be Reduced Without Surgery?

If your condition is caused by poor diet and lack of exercise, then changing your eating habits may help reduce the appearance of male breasts caused by excess fat and a sedentary lifestyle.

Excess glandular tissue, however, often requires surgical intervention for effective removal. That’s because there many be an underlying cause why a man’s breast glands may become enlarged, such as a hormone imbalance.

You will also need to undergo a physical exam to rule out something more serious such as male breast cancer.
