Male breast reduction: Surgical techniques
Depending on your unique condition, our surgeons may employ one or more of the following surgical techniques for your male breast reduction procedure:
Liposuction is ideal for patients who have an excess of fat tissue and good skin contraction. Tiny incisions are made in each breast, and the breast tissue is suctioned out. Tumescent fluid is injected into the tissue to facilitate the removal of tissue, and if the breast tissue is especially dense, a specialized grinding cannula may be used to extract the breast tissue.
If you have an excess of breast tissue and loose skin on the chest, skin excision techniques are employed. In this approach, incisions are usually placed around the areola. If greater amounts of skin removal are required, an additional incision may be made in the chest’s crease or an incision that extends out in either direction from the outer edges of the areolas. These larger incisions enable our surgeons to re-sculpt your chest and produce a distinctly masculine, improved aesthetic by removing breast tissue, glands, and skin.
