Reducing Breast Size in Men
About 200,000 to 3 million cases of #gynecomastia are being reported every single year. So if you have #breast #enlargement and you feel you're an exception, please understand that 1 in 3 young adult #men and 1 in 2 older adult men are just like you and have breast enlargement. According to official statistics, 36% of adult young men and 57% of older #adult men in the United States have this medical condition in one of the four grades.
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.
Not only will this decrease risks of complications, but will also enhance the aesthetic results. Further, normal body weight is different from one patient to another.

You will need a Gynecomastia excision to remove the glands and a Liposuction procedure to remove the fat. This can be done through a small incision without a visible scarring. To reduce nipple sizes, however, you will need an incision around the nipple. You may still have some loose skin which can only be removed by excisional surgery. This would however leaves scars. My personal opinion, based on your pictures is to do Liposuction and Gland Excision in your situations and wait for several months, as the skin will retract, and you may not need any skin excision which results in significant scarring.
