What is Male Breast Reduction?
Male breast reduction surgery is undertaken to resolve enlargement of the male breasts due to excessive fat, enlarged mammary glands or a combination of these factors. Depending on the primary cause, either or both of the following procedures will be of benefit to the patient.
Breast Fat Liposuction
If breast enlargement is due mainly to fat, liposuction will be the treatment of choice. This will reduce a good percentage of the fat but will not completely flatten the chest, as it does not take away mammary glands and other non-fat tissue.
If breast enlargement is due mainly to enlarged glands, the breast volume can be reduced by surgical removal in a process called Subcutaneous Mastectomy, wherein breast tissues are taken out through an incision around the areola. The skin is largely left intact and scars will be only in the periareolar area. There is a chance of puckering of the incision site which may take a year to flatten out.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: Will I be awake during surgery?
Answer : You will be asleep under general anesthesia.
Q2 : How long do I need to stay in the hospital?
Answer : You will be admitted for 1-2 nights only but will be asked to return for follow up 7-10 days after surgery.

Answer: The risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, nerve injury, asymmetrical chest contour, loose skin, unfavorable scarring, and the need for revision surgery.
Q5: How should I prepare for surgery?
Answer: To avoid complications and reduce risk factors you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines (other than those that your doctor allows you continue), at least two weeks before your schedule. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
