What Is A Gynaecomastia Operation?

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

At the start of this month in our vlog series, we take a look at male breast reduction surgery. The technical term is more commonly known as gynaecomastia surgery. Many patients would undergo male breast reduction surgery when there is visible enlargement of breast tissue around the chest area. The cause of this is due to either a hormonal imbalance in the body or it can gradually form naturally as men begin to age. This condition is normally referred to as “man boobs” or “moobs” and can be the main reason for patients undergoing male breast reduction surgery.

Through gynaecomastia surgery, improvements can be made in a few different methods to help the contour of the chest. The results of the surgery are dependent on how much tissue has developed over time and the placement of the nipple. In order to remove the excessive tissue, a liposuction procedure is normally conducted as part of the male breast reduction surgery. There are case study examples provided in the vlog of patients who have undergone the gynaecomastia surgery results through liposuction. In some cases, a patient may require a nipple graft if blood supply to the nipples are required to be cut off. Whether this is needed and to discover whether the male breast reduction surgery is ideal for can be discussed through a consultation before you undergo surgery.
