Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek words for “women-like breasts.” Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men. It may affect only one breast or both.
The male breast reduction procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured. Liposuction can result in asymmetry, dimpling, wrinkling, unevenness and surface irregularities over the treated area which can usually be avoided by VASER ; making it the treatment of choice for gynaecomastia. More often than not, male breast reduction is combined with VASER lipo of the abdomen, flanks and back for complete body contouring in males.Read Client Reviews on RealSelf

Your New Look
You may be a candidate if you are healthy, are of relatively normal weight, have realistic expectations, are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too large and your breast development has stabilized. The best candidates for surgery have firm, elastic skin that will reshape to the body’s new contours. Teens may benefit from surgery if their gynecomastia has been present for more than 2 years or if the problem is severe.
Male breast reduction may be discouraged if you are obese, or if you are overweight and have not first attempted to lose the fat around the breast area with an exercise or weight loss program. If you use drugs that may cause the condition, you need to stop using these drugs or to switch to other medications that do not cause it. Never stop taking a prescription medication without talking to your doctor first
