I'm 34 yrs old male and want a Breast Reduction/ sculpting. What treatment would you recommend?
Thank you for the question and pictures. Accurate diagnosis would necessitate physical examination. It IS important to differentiate gynecomastia ( excess breast tissue) from lipomastia ( otherwise known as pseudo-gynecomastia or excess adipose tissue of chest wall). Treatment will differ depending on diagnosis. My best suggestion: seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you will be pleased with.

Reduction & Sculpting Enlarged Male Breasts (Gynecomastia)
RealSelf has some photos of longer scars across the chest. Those are unusual and typically only needed when hanging loose skin is already present before surgery. Chests like the one you show in the photos wouldn't need the long scars, but an in-person exam would be needed to make personal recommendations. Consult an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon in your area.
What Treatment is Recommended
There are three types of surgical treatment options available that treat gynecomastia. The doctor will recommend the one that is best suited to each individual case. The excision technique is used on cases of #gynecomastia where excess skin and glandular breast tissue must be removed and the areola or nipple needs reduction and repositioning to create a natural looking appearance. The incision patterns are determined by the specific condition of the patient. Men who suffer from large #areolas may notice that after breast surgery, the skin of the chest muscles will tighten, causing the areolas to tighten and diminish in size. This is a result of the removal of glandular and/or adipose tissue.
The doctor will recommend this procedure which combines the liposuction technique and excision technique to create a natural look. Patients are given specific instructions for the recovery period.
