Male Breast Reduction Scars
Gynecomastia is a condition in which the male breast becomes enlarged due to extra fatty tissue and/or glandular tissue. This produces what some call "man boobs," or female-like breasts on men. Gynecomastia can be devastating for its sufferers since it can cause issues with self-confidence and physical contact with others.
Surgical correction of this condition is a safe and effective option for many. Male breast reduction can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence.
If you are considering gynecomastia surgery and are worried about scarring, you will be pleased to know that the risk for scarring is very minimal. Male breast reduction surgery is usually performed by first performing liposuction on the chest. We use a gentle, minimally invasive laser liposuction technique. Laser liposuction is very gentle and requires only a tiny incision to gently melt the fat with a laser, then suction it out.
If breast gland tissue needs to be removed, it is done through small incisions along the border of the areola (the area around the nipple). With such small incisions, male breast reduction scars are rarely noticeable.
