Sculpt your chest with Gynecomastia surgery – Breast Reduction for Men
True Gynecomastia is real breast tissue in a man that sometimes just occurs, but frequently due to the use of androgenic steroids. It is treated by the surgical excision of the breast tissue, which usually is deep due to the areola. Pseudogynecomastia is overgrowth of mammary fat covering the pectoralis major muscle and is best treated by liposuction, and more effectively yet with laser liposuction which enhances skin shrinkage.
True Gynecomastia and Pseudogynecomastia can co-exist. Consequently, the patient needs to be advised that it may be necessary to do an open excision of any remaining firm nodular tissue after completion of the liposuction of the fat, as the true gynecomastia may not be obvious until the fat has been removed.
