Gynecomastia is the condition of enlargement of the glandular tissue of the male breasts. At puberty, men face this issue due to an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone called hormonal imbalance. It can also be a result of heredity, obesity, or the use of certain medicines or drugs. This condition can affect one or both the breasts, sometimes unevenly. This condition can occur in boys after they hit puberty and in order men as a result of normal hormonal changes. Male breast reduction surgery is the most effective way to operate the overdeveloped breasts.

The procedure of gynecomastia surgery starts with general anesthesia. The surgeon uses the liposuction technique to suck out the unwanted fatty tissues. For this, they start by making an incision in the inframammary crease. After the fatty tissues are removed by liposuction, they remove the breast gland via the same incision or periareolar (incision around the areola) incision. If the gynecomastia is enlarged enough with too much skin and puffy areola, then a patient might require areola reduction and reposition additionally, either in the same stage or later.
