Gynecomastia Toronto

What is Male Gynecomastia?

Male gynecomastia can arise from excessive amounts of fat in the male breast that can develop as a result of hereditary issues, diet and environmental factors. It can also occur from an increased growth in male glandular breast tissue.

Although breast cancer is uncommon, just like female breast surgery, pre-operative evaluation mammography and imaging are important to rule out any abnormalities that may be serious and require medical therapy. Once it is established that you are a candidate for male gynecomastia surgery, the procedure is most often performed under IV sedation and local anesthetic. General anesthesia is not usually required for male breast reduction surgery.

Types of Procedures for Male Gynecomastia

For significant over development and droopiness of the breast, a formal breast lift mastopexy (removal and lift) procedure may be required. The breast lift mastopexy scar extends around and then under the areola to the under fold of the breast. Scarring can be significant from this treatment approach, so more minimal access male gynecomastia breast reduction incisions and approaches are preferable.

Traditional liposuction (SAL) may be preformed to remove the non glandular fatty tissue components of the male gynecomastia, which has the advantages of minimal scarring. Some surgeons combine this with a small incision around the areola with direct excision of the glandular tissue under the areola.

Newer techniques such as SmartLipo breast reduction, Vaser breast reduction, ultrasonic liposuction breast reduction and one of the newest, most popular techniques, radiofrequency assisted liposuction of the breast or BreastTite. All of these minimally invasive, small incision options involve inserting a cannula and probe through a small access port into the firm, fibroglandular, fatty breast tissue and inducing through ultrasonic cavitation, laser thermal heat or radiofrequency coagulation and liquefaction of the breast tissue. A gentle melting and then removal and extraction of the breast and fatty tissue follows. The addition of heat to the under surface of the skin in the matrix in the male breast results in a significant three dimensional contraction, of up to 40% resulting in a diminished or decreased need for big scar lift techniques and glandular excision procedures.

If you wish to change and flatten the contours of your chest, are near ideal weight or slightly overweight and desire a flatter, more masculine looking chest, by reducing the male breast tissue and contouring of the pectorals major muscle.
