Male Breast Reduction in Glasgow
Enlarged breasts in a male can often cause emotional and physical distress. It should be noted that it is a common problem and one that should not be underestimated.
Some males may be able to reduce the problem by simple weight loss techniques, however in the case that the breast tissues has over developed a male breast reduction will be required.
The breast reduction surgery normally takes 60-90 minutes and is performed under general anesthetic.
Your consultant plastic surgeon will make a small incision around the dark area around the nipple (areola) and remove the excess fatty tissue. Liposuction may then be used to remove fat. However if the area has a high volume of fat your consultant may require to make more incisions. This will be discussed at your initial consultation once your consultant has examined the area.
It is an option to have a unilaterally (one breast) or bilateral procedure. It is also common to have fat removal (liposuction) from the chest area.
