Gynecomastia Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia Literally Means “Women-Like Breasts.” Gynecomastia Is Overly Developed Breast Tissue In Males. Though It Is Medically Benign, Gynecomastia Can Cause Significant Psychological Discomfort.
Male breast tissue swells due to reduced male hormones (testosterone) or increased female hormones (oestrogen). Causes include puberty, ageing, medication and health conditions that affect hormones.

Gynaecomastia can be treated easily by liposuction at Invivo Aesthetics Bangalore & Kochi. Gynecomastia surgery removes the enlarged tissue in a simple manner under local anesthesia. In liposuction for gynaecomastia, 1-2 small holes (adits) of size 3 mm are made on either side. Then three steps are done:
- Awake Liposuction to remove fatty tissue: A powered machine is used to remove tougher fat tissue.
- Glandular extraction: Through the same small holes, the glandular tissue is teased out and removed. This is tissue is difficult to remove with liposuction alone.
- Skin tightening: Energy device is used to break down the tissue further, which improves the result post-operatively. At the same time, it also causes the skin to contract and adhere to the chest wall.

Men Of All Ages Undergo Gynaecomastia Correction, Though They Should Be Healthy, Emotionally Stable. Those With Fairly Good Skin Elasticity Will See The Best Results.

There are no major complications of gynecomastia as such. However, it can cause psychological or emotional problems due to personal appearance.
There are two approaches to male breast reduction. The first involves removing the excess glandular tissue and fat using surgical excision and liposuction. The second approach removes glandular tissue and fat, while also removing excess skin and lifting the remaining skin. During your consultation, Dr. Gunasekar Vuppalapati will determine which approach would be most beneficial for you.
Gynecomastia results in minimal scarring, with most scars being hidden under the armpit. If your male breast reduction is combined with a lift, you will have scars around your areola that are hidden in the pigment changes of your skin.
Enlarged or swollen male breasts are caused by an excess of fatty tissue, glandular tissue or a combination of both. If you are in good shape and your breasts are disproportionately larger than the rest of your body, you may be storing excess glandular tissue on your chest. Unfortunately, you cannot diet or exercise away glandular tissue. No matter how much weight you lose, your breasts will probably not get smaller.
Liposuction alone can only treat cases of gynecomastia caused by excessive fatty breast tissue. Glandular tissue must be surgically excised.
