Male Breast Removal Surgery – What You Need to Know

Man Boobs Reduction surgery is usually the last option people consider in an attempt to solve the problem. They usually first choose to reduce gynecomastia naturally with exercise or using natural or organic treatments. Unfortunately, such measures are never effective for complete satisfaction.

It’s okay to conceal it for a while, for example if you are a young adult and the perfect solution is merely a subject of waiting till you get older as well as your hormones find a balance.
You may also hide it while you look for or hunt for the best solution by talking to doctors. Sooner or later, though, you need to decide. Almost always, surgery is the only option.


You can reduce fat with diet and exercise. This really is a possible solution if the condition is the pseudo-gynecomastia (gynecomastia caused by fat deposition only).

What to do if diet and exercise don’t work or perhaps you just don’t want to do it?
What to do if you are tired of concealing and covering your gynecomastia and the challenge is hormonal imbalance?
The answer is man boobs surgery. The medical term for gynaecomastia surgery is “reduction mammoplasty”.

Types of Man Breasts Surgery
There are two main types of surgery for the reduction of gynecomastia: liposuction and direct surgical removal of glands.

Liposuction is a surgical treatment performed with the patient under tumescent local anaesthesia at Vital Clinic. The fat is sucked out of breast with an appropriate cannula. Liposuction under tumescent local anaesthesia is very effective and the patient can fully recover in just two days. He can resume his normal routine work immediately after surgery.

As part of post-op management, the cosmetic surgeon suggests an elastic compression bandage to make it more comfortable to recuperate, promote satisfactory healing, skin retraction and eliminates and reduces the risk for the physical problems of the post-surgery.

Direct surgical removal by dissection is good when the gynecomastia is not brought on just by fat, but by hormonal imbalances and there are mammary glands. The operation actually involves removing of the tissues that form the gynecomastia that is, fat and glands by a small incision in the lower periphery of areola. It is called Webster’s incision.

The incision is then stitched and marks are usually not noticeable or obvious. Almost always, both liposuction and direct glands removal are necessary to give good results. Also in this case it is highly recommended to avoid extreme movements of the arms and chest in the post-surgery healing phase.

These techniques have proved to be the most effective. A cons of the man boobs surgery is that it is invasive (like any other surgical technique) but has very high safety profile when performed under tumescent local anaesthesia, by the ‘awake’ technique. It gives flat chest, which is totally worth it.

Remember: Look for promotions and discounts but choose the most reliable and trustworthy cosmetic surgeon for man boobs reduction surgery. Your overall health is the most important issue.

    Sometimes male patients feel they have puffy nipples. Surgery removes the puffy nipples with minimal possible scar. The surgery is outpatient and avoids the large open incisions and scars including free nipple grafting scars that are typical of the traditional techniques. Most patients notice significant flattening of the chest as well as a shrinkage of the often dilated size of the areola. Special compression vests are utilized post-op for good healing. Patients need only a day off of work and can resume full working out and exercise in six weeks. Results are immediate but, improvement continues for about three months.

      Dear friend, the only solution for Gynaecomastia is surgery. There is no other way. All surgeries require incisions and all incisions leave scars. There is no scar-less surgery. Important thing to consider is the size of the incision and the place where it is given. We place our small incision inside the dark circle called Areola, so that the scar remains well hidden inside the dark area. There is COMPLETE flattening of the chest, in every patient. We never advise ‘lymphatic massage’ as it has no scientific basis. Patients can resume work from the very next day and exercises after a week. Final results take six weeks to three months. Gynaecomastia surgery totally under local anesthesia by the tumescent awake technique has the highest safety profile and gives excellent results consistently.

    There may be other factors for the surgeon to consider before deciding upon the charges like sagging of the breasts, previous incomplete or complicated surgeries and expected technical difficulties during surgery. Therefore surgeon must examine you first before quoting gynecomastia surgery cost to you.
