Gynecomastia, or male breast development, is a common, yet embarrassing, condition for many men. There is oftentimes a social stigma associated with gynecomastia, which limits clothing choices and can cause men to avoid removing their shirts in public. Many men are too embarrassed to seek medical treatment for this condition.
Ironically, male breast reduction surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures for men. In the most common variety of this operation, ultrasound-assisted liposuction is used to remove excessive breast tissue and fat, to provide a flatter, less feminine contour to the chest. In more severe cases, because of significant droopiness to the nipple and areola (pigmented skin around the nipple), incisions need to be made to remove extra skin.
Obviously, the goal with every patient is to provide the best cosmetic results with the least amount of scarring. For that reason, every effort is made to achieve the final result with liposuction and utilization of a compression garment to facilitate postoperative skin shrinking.
