Is gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction) just a version of liposuction for male breasts?
A: treatment of gynecomastia
The treatment of gynecomastia (male breasts) usually involves a combination of liposuction of the chest and direct excision or surgical removal of breast tissue. This is typically performed through a small incision at the lower edge of the areola. Some patients who have more severe forms of gynecomastia present with excess skin which requires more complex incisions to remove not only breast tissue but also the skin itself.
Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to scheduling any plastic surgery procedure.
