GYNECOMASTIA - MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Gynecomastia surgery is a male breast reduction surgery for enlarged breasts in men. The increase in the weight of breasts causes the breast to sag and leads to the extension of the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). Mammaplasty is plastic surgery to correct Gynecomastia.

Procedure for male breast reduction surgery
Anesthesia: This is an essential step since it provides comfort to the patient throughout the process. Your doctor will recommend the best option for you, either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
Surgeons may use liposuction techniques alone in cases where Gynecomastia is primarily the result of excess fatty tissue. The procedure demands the insertion of a cannula, a thin hollow tube, through several small incisions.
The cannula is moved back and forth in a rhythmic motion to disengage the excess fat, then removed from the body by vacuum suction.
The surgeon will define the technique most appropriate in your case before your procedure.
Doctors recommend an excision technique where glandular breast tissue or excess skin removal is necessary.
Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preference.Sometimes the doctor may recommend you both the process simultaneously for obtaining the best result.
