Male Breast Reduction
The Male Breast
Liposuction of the male breast is one of the most common areas treated by liposuction. In men other areas commonly treated in my practice include the neck, abdomen and flank.
The Normal Male Breast
Both male and female breasts contain a mixture of fat and fibrous glandular tissue (the breast tissue). Liposuction will remove the fat component of the breast and sometimes a small excision is made to surgically remove the ‘nubbin’ of breast tissue under the nipple. It is important to note that the amount of fat in the breast varies from individual to individual. There are no investigations which can categorically tell how much fat there is in the breast. The only way to do this is by liposuction of the breast, extracting as much fat as we are able. If, at consultation, I believe we can reduce the breast by liposuction we are almost always able to do this. We do refund part of the fee if we are unable to obtain a significant reduction.
The majority of males with enlarged breasts have what is termed ‘Pseudo-Gynecomastia’. This is particularly so if the man carries excess body fat. Fortunately, Pseudo-Gynecomastia is usually very amenable to reduction by tumescent liposuction.
