Many men are embarrassed by the breast-like appearance of their pectoral area, AKA “man boobs”. The condition is known as gynecomastia and it is a swelling of the breast tissue caused by a hormonal imbalance. If the problem is a case of excess fat, liposuction is likely the best option. If there is a glandular component to the problem, the surgeon will open up the patient’s nipple to remove a chunk of hard glands. Once the opening is made, liposuction is performed to remove excess fat in the area. If there is an exorbitant amount of skin, the surgeon will remove the excess skin, gland tissue and fat and salvage the nipple as a skin graft. It will be re-grafted onto the desired location.
