Male breast reduction (also known as gynecomastia) is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men.During an excision procedure, the incision is made either on the edge of the nipple (areola) or in the underarm area. The surgeon cuts the excess glandular tissues,skin and fats from around the pigmented area surrounding the areola and from the sides and bottom of the breast.
Liposuction is also used to remove excess fat, a hollow tube (cannula), is inserted directly through the existing incisions. The cannula is attached to a vacuum pump to suction out the fat.
