Gynecomastia

You sound as if you will need what is called a male breast reduction in which both fat and breast tissue are removed to give you a flatter looking chest. My best advice would be for you to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to be examined in person and discuss your options. Best of luck.

Gynecomastia for a Normal Chest

You are not alone, male breasts affect up to 60% of men at some point in their life. If your breasts have been present for more than two years, the only solution will be surgery. Be sure to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in gynecomastia. Very few men can be treated with liposuction alone and only if they have pseudogynecomastia, which are breasts caused only by fat. Most men have a combination of fat and breast tissue which needs to be removed by liposuction and surgical excision. Good luck.

? Gynaecomastia

If you are not happy with the shape of your chest, see a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon. Only after a detailed examination, he can decide what type of surgery would be beneficial for you. Usually gynaecomastia  surgery is very successful and can greatly improve the shape of the male chest.

Thank you for the question and picture. Accurate diagnosis would necessitate physical examination. It IS important to differentiate  as uncomfortable as gynecomastia ( excess breast tissue) from lipomastia ( otherwise known as pseudo-gynecomastia or excess adipose tissue of chest wall). Treatment will differ depending on diagnosis. 



Generally speaking, liposuction surgery alone is useful to treat lipomastia (an enlarged chest secondary to adipose tissue); rarely does it suffices as the only modality of treatment when it comes to treating true gynecomastia. Most patients with gynecomastia benefit from direct excision of glandular tissue plus/minus peripheral liposuction surgery.



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. You may find the attached link helpful to you as you learn more. Best wishes.

Surgery for Severe Gynecomastia

From your descriptions, it seems that you are suffering from severe gynecomastia. Best suggestion can be given if you share your pictures with significant details like your age, medical history etc. If you're young and have good skin elasticity then a trans-nipple gynecomastia correction may be done and after 1 year of assessment, the skin refitting may be decided (if the skin doesn't settle on its own). But if you don't have enough elastic skin, you may require skin removal in the same stage of gynecomastia correction that unfortunately produces scar on chest. Ultimately, it is to be decided after seeing your picture. All the best.

Gynecomastia

hard to make any specific recommendations without a photograph. Make sure you visit with a board-certified plastic surgeon who does this operation on a regular basis. It's a very effective procedure  but highly dependent on just how big you are, skin tone, age, etc.

I would recommend an in person consultation.  Seek a plastic surgeon who performs many of these procedures, has great reviews and photos, and is an expert in this field.
