Male Breast Reduction

Gynaecomastia or man boobs is a common condition that causes boys’ and men’s breasts to swell and become larger than normal. It is most common in teenage boys and older men.It can be unilateral or bilateral. Apart from affecting self-confidence and causing embarrassment, some men and boys may also experience pain in their breasts.

Gynaecomastia can be easily corrected surgically by removing the excess fat and glandular tissue by liposuction & excision. Sometimes the overlying skin may need to be tightened as well. The surgery can be done either under local or general anaesthetic. A small incision is made in the lower half of the nipple area or in the inframammary fold through which the liposuction cannula is inserted. The surgery may take 1-2 hours and if done under a general anaesthetic, you may need to stay in hospital for one night. After the surgery a dressing and pressure garment may be given,which you have to wear for a few weeks.
Minimally Invasive Gynaecomastia surgery
The Pull-Through Procedure is a less invasive way of doing this surgery. The fat and glandular tissue is pulled out through a smaller incision. The advantage of this procedure is that there are less scars & post surgery no drains will have to be left. This will lead to faster healing and less visible scar.

You might need to take a few days off work and avoid strenuous activities for a while. There is a very small risk of infection or scarring in the surgical area. This surgery is becoming more popular over the years as men realize the happiness and satisfaction of being at ease with their body. All types of gynaecomastia surgery procedures are being done at the Image medical centre.
