If having big breasts is flattering for women, you can not do as much for men. In fact, having “breasts” is very embarrassing for men because they see them as a threat to their manhood.
This situation can become downright unpleasant if you do activities such as jogging or running. And unlike women, you can not wear a sports bra to keep them for fear of becoming the target of mockery around you.
Gynecomastia (enlargement of the male breast tissue) may be an inherited malformation.
Gynecomastia may be due to a hypertrophy of mammary gland or excess fat and breast skin (in varying proportions).
Am I a good candidate?
There are many reasons why men of all ages seek gynecomastia surgery:
- Embarrassment, especially when changing into public.
- Problems with sex.
- Being unhappy because of his physical appearance.
- Emotional conflict over sexual identity.
What are the different techniques of gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia cosmetic surgery consists essentially of two techniques:
Suitable for men with moderate enlargement of their breasts and without significant skin excess of the breast.
Can be performed under local or general anesthesia.
Liposuction simply sucks up excess fat under the breast but does not remove the tissue from the mammary gland that is not composed of adipose tissue.
Suitable for the most developed gynecomastia cases.
The incision technique can give very good results especially if it is combined with liposuction.
The incision is usually made around the areola (the area around the nipple) to access the breast tissue and remove it.
What are the results?
Gynecomastia surgery can reduce breast tissue and have a flat, male chest.
This procedure is considered permanent but you must be careful not to gain weight.

How is the intervention done?
General anesthesia is the most recommended option for male breast reduction surgery. However, local anesthesia associated with sedation may also be used in some cases.
After administering the anesthesia, your surgeon creates an incision based on your anatomy. The most common incision is the intra-areolar incision or Webster incision, which extends along the circumference of the lower half of the areola.
The choice of surgical technique depends on the elasticity of your skin and your agreement with your surgeon. As mentioned earlier, you can opt for liposuction or tissue excision. You can also opt for a combination of both. Those with severe gynecomastia may even need skin reduction and nipple transposition.
Some people opt for a minimally invasive gynecomastia, which uses a “pulling technique” that creates a very small incision at the edge of the areola. Usually performed after liposuction, the extraction technique involves extracting the glandular tissue from the underlying areola through the incision. Although this technique causes fewer scars, it is not suitable for everyone.
The incisions are then collected to reshape the now smaller breasts. Some sutures are layered deep into the breast tissue to provide support, while skin adhesives, surgical tape or sutures are used to close the skin. Although the incisions are permanent, they will disappear significantly over time.
After the surgery:
Just after undergoing male breast reduction surgery, you will notice an immediate improvement in the shape and appearance of your breasts. Although your breasts are noticeably flat, expect redness and swelling after surgery.
The appearance of your scars may vary depending on the amount of breast tissue you have and the elasticity of your skin. If you have just undergone liposuction, your scars will probably be just big enough to fit a liposuction cannula. However, if you have tissue excision, your scars may spread on either side of your chest. There is also usually a scar under the areola.
Immediately after surgery, expect to have very tight bandages at the chest. You must wear compression garments, perhaps a surgical drain to prevent fluid build-up.
You must rest for the first three days after the operation, even if you can do simple activities such as sitting on TV or eating. However, you should avoid vigorous shoulder movements. Painful activities should also be avoided for the first two to three weeks to ensure optimal healing.
Most patients who have had gynecomastia surgery in Miami can return to work after a week. Low-impact activities can be resumed within two to three weeks, while mild upper limb resistance exercises can be performed three to six weeks after surgery.
To prevent prolonged swelling and permanent discoloration of your scars, avoid direct sunlight or tanning for approximately six weeks. It may take three months before the swelling completely disappears.
