Male Breast Reduction Procedure

Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction

Men naturally want to feel masculine, fresh and younger with real muscles protruding on their chest amongst other areas. This need can be escalated especially if one has been having weight fluctuations, loose skin, or enlarged breast tissue among other things. The results of not looking or feeling masculine enough for a man can lead to:

  • Losing of confidence
  • Self-consciousness
  • Avoiding activities that can make one show their chest, such as swimming

Gynecomastia surgery, also referred to as male breast reduction in Dubai, is a procedure that gets rid of enlarged breast tissue in men. The procedure, also known as male breast reduction is recommended to achieve a flatter, and more masculine chest contour. Enlarged breast tissue can be caused by genetics, hormonal imbalance or the patient might have taken certain medications thus making his breasts larger than normal.

Male Breast Reduction Technique Options

Male breast reduction, which is a surgical procedure, is done to remove extra fat and glandular tissue, thus restoring the chest to be firmer and flatter and appear more masculine.
Enlarged breast tissue in men can be treated in two ways:

  • With Liposuction; where small incisions are done either within the armpit or at the edge of the areola so as to remove extra fat and tissues at the breasts.
  • With Tissue Excision; this is done when the patient has stretched skin that is sagging around the breasts and the procedure cannot be accomplished by liposuction alone.

Gynecomastia Surgery Process

a) The Consultation

The first step of a Gynecomastia treatment in Dubai is to have a detailed consultation and examination in the clinic with our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, to determine a tailor-made plan for each candidate.

b) The Surgery

The second step is to schedule the male breast reduction surgery with the highly qualified and experienced Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in male breast reduction and cosmetic procedures. The surgery is performed in a hospital setting as an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia and takes 2-3 hours.

Prior to the surgery, each patient is screened to ensure that it is safe to proceed with the procedure. This includes a pre-anesthetic consultation, blood testing to rule out hormonal imbalances, and to ensure the patient is a fit candidate for the procedure.

The treatment when done with liposuction is performed using either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia via a small incision on each side of the breast. The incision can be located either under the armpit or at the edge of the areola so as to remove the glandular tissue or the extra fat through suction. Sculpting the chest contour to appear natural is also done.

If it is a more severe condition of stretched and sagging skin around the breast, the surgeon has to do a surgical tissue excision to remove the amount of skin or/and tissue that is of great amount which cannot be removed by a liposuction procedure alone. The incision is usually made around the edge of the areola or within the creases of the chest to avoidscarring.

The expert plastic surgeon accompanies the patient throughout the entire process of recovery and healing, through scheduled follow-ups.

c) The Recovery

A compression garment is given to the patient to wear so as to minimize swelling in the first two to six weeks or so depending on the healing process. Upon discharge from the hospital, the patient typically has minor bandages, which are changed the following day. Excessive exercise is prohibited for about three weeks. The patient can return to work after few days if the work is not strenuous.

Over a period of about 4 weeks, the patient would typically have several post-operation visits to the clinic to monitor the healing process.


Although a male breast reduction procedure is straightforward, it is important that the right level of intervention or treatment is determined and that the procedure, whether surgical or non-surgical be performed by a qualified and expert Plastic Surgeon. A potential candidate has to fit into certain criteria to be eligible for the procedure, and should have:

  • Be a male who is unhappy with the size of the breast
  • Wish to increase self confidence
  • Realistic expectations regarding the expected results.
  • Be in good health both physically and psychologically.

What To Expect From A Male Breast Reduction

The main benefit of a male breast reduction is removing excess fat and breast tissue from the breasts. Since everyone is different, the expected results of a male breast reduction might vary from person to person, but benefits typically include:

  • Natural masculine appearance the chest.
  • Regaining self-confidence and self-image.
  • One can engage into activities that one was once shy about.
