Male breast tissue is a source of anxiety and embarrassment to many men.
The problem typically results in the sufferers not wearing T-shirts that allow the breast to protrude and will avoid showing their chest on the beach.
The breast tissue can be either fibrous, fatty or a combination of the two. The composition of the tissue will determine what excisional technique is used.
The distribution of fat in the male chest determines its aesthetics. Imbalance and poor proportions result in poor appearance.

When the composition of the breast tissue is primarily fatty, liposuction is an excellent solution
The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and does not involve an overnight stay
Liposuction involves using tubes to suck out fat. The techniques used to assist the liposuction can be an ultrasound (VASER) and power assistance (MICROAIRE). In addition to helping to remove the fat, these advanced techniques reduce swelling and bruising by decreasing trauma to the tissues
The scars associated with liposuction are very small and are hidden in the armpit and nipple
If the excess breast tissue is primarily fat then this is ideal for liposuction.
Patients presenting with fibrous breast tissue and excess skin will require a more invasive procedure. This assessment will be made at the consultation.
Being overweight is associated with poorer surgical outcomes, and will also limit the quality of the final aesthetic outcome. It is recommended that you have a BMI< 30
Smoking is associated with poor surgical outcomes and stopping smoking 3 weeks before the surgery is a pre-requisite
Medical problems such as diabetes can impair wound healing
Medications such as warfarin, aspirin, and Plavix prolong bleeding and steroids impair wound healing
