Gynaecomastia (or Gyno), excessive breast growth in males, can be due to a number of causes. Hormonal imbalance is a major cause commonly due to the onset of puberty or rarely, a hormone-secreting tumour (eg. pituitary or testicular tumour).

It can be a side-effect of certain medications such as treatments used for prostate cancer or sickle-cell disease. Other drugs may cause gynaecomastia such as marijuana or steroids, but the most common cause is ‘idiopathic’. This means that no cause is found.

Gyno can cause psychological and emotional distress as men can feel unable to take their shirt off in public and often feel uncomfortable wearing T-shirts or any tight top that may show the contour of the chest. Treatment is aimed at removing the excess breast tissue along with the glandular tissue of the breast and in some occasions, the skin will need to be tightened.

Male breast reduction for mild gyno with no skin excess

For this patient group, liposuction is an effective treatment. It leaves minimal scarring with only small incisions and will effectively remove the excess breast tissue as long as it is predominantly fatty. Sometimes there is dense breast tissue behind the nipple that cannot be removed with liposuction. In these cases, the tissue needs to be removed through an infra-areolar incision.

This is a half-moon shape incision below the nipple. The scar is planned at the junction between the pigmented areolar skin and the paler skin of the chest wall. By leaving the scar here, it is well hidden and is often difficult to see once the initial redness has faded.
