Surgical Techniques for Male Breast Reduction Surgery

There are a few specialized techniques when approaching Male Breast Reduction Surgery, these include:


This technique involves the removal of excess fat from the chest area using a thin, hollow tube called a cannula.


This technique is used to remove glandular tissue or excess skin through incisions made around the areola or in the natural creases of the chest.

Combination Technique

In some cases, a combination of Liposuction and Excision may be used to achieve the desired results, especially when there is a significant amount of both fat and glandular tissue present.

Where are the Incisions and Scars for Gynecomastia?

At Landford Plastic Surgery, we believe the technique is a form of art when it comes to surgery. The incisions and resulting scars for Male Breast Reduction Surgery depend on the specific technique used and the individual patient’s needs. In cases where Liposuction is performed, small incisions are typically made in inconspicuous areas, such as the armpit or along the lower edge of the areola. For excision techniques, incisions may be made around the areola or in the natural creases of the chest, resulting in scars that are strategically placed to minimize their visibility. The exact placement and extent of incisions will be discussed with Dr. Landford during the consultation.
