Are You a Candidate For Male Breast Reduction Surgery
It's not easy to determine without an in-person #consultation. However, if you are a #candidate, there are three types of surgical treatment options available that treat gynecomastia. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will recommend the type best suited for you. The most important decision to be made before performing any surgical procedure is determining whether you are an ideal candidate. Weight, and more specifically body mass index (BMI), need to be considered when deciding. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is highly suggested in order to determine if you are a surgery candidate and what treatments are best for you.
Thank you for your question. You may have a breast bud needing excision, and also some liposuction may be needed. I have failed to see good results without using ultrasonic liposuction. The dense fat on a male chest is hard to just aspirate. Some ultrasonic help is needed. The Vaser performs well for us. I hope this helps!
Surgical Correction of Puffy Chest with Fat
The accumulation of fat is not the only reason for a puffy chest, most of the times, there is excess breast tissue (fibro glandular tissues) that causes this female-like breast condition in men. Hence, the removal of fat alone may not be helpful and excision of fibro glandular tissue may be required to cure this completely (also permanently). Find a board certified plastic surgeon and consult about the problem in detail. All the best.
Depends on the diagnosis and goals…
Gynecomastia comes from the Greek meaning "gyne" meaning woman and "mastos" meaning breasts. It refers to abnormal development of large mammary glands in males. The diagnosis can be made by physical examination where relatively firm tissue (breast gland tissue) can be differentiated from relatively soft tissue (adipose tissue).
Breast prominence due to excessive adipose tissue is called pseudo-gynecomastia or lipomastia. The differentiation of true gynecomastia from adipose tissue is important because the surgical treatment may differ. Usually physical examination by a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon is sufficient to make the diagnosis and to determine the best course of treatment.
I have found that gynecomastia is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposculpture surgery alone may suffice.
I would strongly suggest that you make sure you are working with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. You will find that this recommendation will be more important than any specific “miracle technology” that you will undoubtedly hear about.
I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Happy New Year!
Could be gynecomastia, difficult to tell without exam
Hello Abhibhat, Thanks for your question. If you like many men have excess fatty tissue in the chest/breast area this can often be treated with liposuction (usually ultrasound or other) if you have dense breast tissue under the nipple/areola this may need to be cut out. I would seek out a consultation with a Plastic Surgeon who has performed numerous gynecomastia cases and can discuss your area of concern and the options for treatment as well as if a endocrine work-up is in order. Regards, Dr. Joseph Eby

Thanks for your inquiry. Nonsurgical options include trying diet and exercise to reduce your overall body fat, which may also improve the appearance of your chest. Surgical options include liposuction of your chest, or excision of the fatty tissue which is a male breast reduction for gynecomastia. A plastic surgeon will be able to tell you whether you are a good candidate for surgery.
