Gynaecomastia (pronounced guy-ne-co-mastia) is a medical term meaning male breast enlargement. In the majority of cases there is no known cause and, although rarely talked about, it is a common condition. For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast-reduction surgery can be helpful. The procedure removes tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases excess skin. .

Ideal candidates for a male breast reduction are males who have enlarged breasts and feel self-conscious about the appearance of their breasts.
Male breast reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, or in some cases, under local anaesthesia with sedation.
The breast is made up of two main components, glandular tissue (firm and dense) and fatty tissue (soft). The ratio of glandular to fatty tissue in any breast varies from individual to individual and in gynaecomastia there may be an excess of both. If there is predominantly a diffuse fatty enlargement of the breast, liposuction is the usual treatment. If excess glandular tissue is the primary cause of breast enlargement, it may need to be cut out with a scalpel. This will leave a scar, usually around the nipple edge. This excision can be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction. Major reductions that involve the removal of a significant amount of tissue and skin may require larger incisions that result in more obvious scars.
There are some possible risks, as with all surgery, which will be explained to you at the time of your consultation. This is an opportunity to discuss your treatment and allow your consultant to ascertain your expectations and discuss the results that can be achieved. In order for you to make an informed choice it is vital that you understand all aspects of the procedure and all possible outcomes.
