Gynecomastia is a fairly common, but rarely talked about,

can be linked to specific drugs or medical problems. Most commonly gynecomastia
is caused by excess localized fat deposits. Breast reduction surgery
can help men feel better about their appearance by creating a more masculine
Before surgery you will have a complete medical checkup to rule out
any curable medical cause of your enlarged breasts. Obesity, impaired
liver function, excessive use of alcohol or marijuana, estrogen containing
medications and anabolic steroids can all contribute to gynecomastia.
If any of these conditions are detected, they must be corrected before
surgery can be performed. Overweight men are encouraged to diet and
exercise prior to their surgery.
Your surgeon will make an incision under your breasts or around the
areola (the dark skin around the nipple). Liposuction is usually the
treatment of choice to remove these excess localized fat deposits. Persistent
excess glandular tissue, fat and skin can be surgically removed from
around the areola and from the bottom and sides of the breasts to create
a new smaller breast contour if liposuction is not indicated.
Swelling and bruising are normal and will subside over the next few
weeks. You will need to wear an elastic bandage or pressure garment
as your breasts heal. Scarring is usually minimal and will fade with
time. You should avoid direct sun exposure for six months.
