Male Breast Reduction, or “Gynecomastia” surgery, is a procedure that removes excess breast tissue in men so as to achieve a flatter, more masculine chest contour. Usually men who seek gynecomastia surgery are bothered by the puffiness or thickened breast glands under the nipples.

Our Preferences:

We prefer an incision in the areola (colored part of the nipple) to remove the glandular tissue. We almost always do this procedure with liposuction to improve the overall contour of the chest.
