Contouring the Male Chest Wall

Gynecomastia surgery involves removal of excess breast tissue in men that develops either post-puberty or in the 4th-5th decade of life.  Different techniques are available to give excellent results. This type of surgery is quite common in men due to the effects of hormones, including steroids, and other medications on receptors in the breast glandular tissue. Once hypertrophy occurs, it is quite difficult to correct without surgical intervention. Below are some examples of surgical treatments for gynecomastia, ranging from liposuction to direct excision of skin, glandular tissue.
