Use of certain medications and due to genetic factors or for any unspecified reasons whatsoever, enlarged male breast is quite a common problem. Gynecomastia – the medical term of enlarged male breast – can be present in a person irrespective of his age, and male breast reduction treatment is by far one of the most effective ways of treating this problem. It is a form of cosmetic surgery that can be successfully performed on teenagers or adults, to shed off the excess fat and glandular tissue, thus making the chest look flatter, firmer and in proper shape. Male breast reduction surgery can be performed by any one of the two ways: liposuction technique or excision technique. Liposuction involves inserting a thin hollow tube (cannula) through the incisions and moving it to and fro to loosen the extra fat present inside. Once the fat gets loosened, it is removed by vacuum suction. Excision technique, on the other hand, is practiced when excess glandular tissue has to be removed. The success of this surgery is dependent on the skill of the cosmetic surgeon. Male breast reduction surgery treatment will cost anywhere between $4,500 to $7,500, excluding the cost of compression garments. Depending on the type of surgery the time taken for surgery will vary. After surgery, patients are prescribed to wear a compression garment for the first few weeks as it prevents swelling and offers support to the tissues, after which a person can get back to normal life.
