Gynaecomastia surgery is a male breast reduction procedure frequently performed to reduce the shape and size of the enlarged breast tissue. The surgery is quite effective in eliminating deposits of excess fat and breast tissue, whether severe or mild.
In severe cases of gynaecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In these cases, the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.
This surgery is also known as reduction mammaplasty.
