Gynecomastia refers to enlarged male breasts. Enlarged breasts in men can be caused by age, genetics, obesity, hormones, certain medications or drugs like steroids or marijuana. Gynecomastia can be emotionally distressing for men and cause them to avoid physical activities or hinder their personal intimate relationships. Some men may also find it challenging to find clothing that can adequately hide their enlarged breasts.

In some cases, gynecomastia is mainly due to excess fatty tissue. In a case where the board certified plastic surgeon determines that fat is the issue, liposuction alone may be used. This involves a very small, hidden incision. Excess fat is removed through the small, hidden incisions so Dr. Mahmood can sculpt a natural-looking chest contour.
Excision of excess glandular tissue with liposuction
In many cases gynecomastia is caused by both excess fatty tissue and excess firm glandular breast tissue. This requires removal of the glandular tissue as well as liposuction in order to achieve the best possible outcome. The board certified plastic surgeon hides a small incision for the liposuction procedure and a small incision is hidden in the areola to access and remove the firm glandular tissue.
Excision of excess skin and breast tissue
Some patients have hanging breast skin and tissue and enlarged areolas that may require larger incisions to remove the sagging breast tissue. The nipples may need to be moved to a more natural place for a male chest.
Recovery and after care
After male breast reduction, patients should wear a compression garment for a few weeks and avoid vigorous exercise or heavy lifting for 1 month. Results are permanent, and it is important that patients maintain a healthy weight.
