Breast reduction or Mammoplasty

Breast reduction is a way to balance the body proportions, minimize physical ailments and improve the psychological comfort of a woman. It consists in removing the excess glandular tissue of the breast and skin in order to achieve the desired cup size. In addition, during the operation, the shape of the breasts are modeled so that they have the best aesthetic effect. Depending on the method of breast reduction, the incision and scar occur around the areola and vertically from the areola to the furrow under the breast or around the areola, vertically and in the fold.

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and volume of the breasts by removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin.

However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with breast reduction surgery, including bleeding, infection, scarring, changes in nipple sensation, and problems with breast-feeding.


Gynecomastia Overview

Gynecomastia (sometimes referred to as "man boobs") is a common condition that causes boys' and men's breasts to swell and become larger than normal. It is most common in teenage boys and older men.

    The operation involves:
  • making a cut around the nipple.
  • removing excess fatty tissue with a scalpel or using liposuction to suck it out repositioning the nipples if a lot of tissue needs to be removed.

You'll have dressings over your wounds.

Causes of Gynaecomastia

Hormone imbalance

Gynecomastia can be caused by an imbalance between the sex hormones testosterone and oestrogen. Oestrogen causes breast tissue to grow. While all men produce some oestrogen, they usually have much higher levels of testosterone, which stops the oestrogen from causing breast tissue to grow.
If the balance of hormones in the body changes, this can cause a man's breasts to grow. Sometimes, the cause of this imbalance is unknown.


Being obesite a common cause of gynecomastia – this is because being overweight can increase levels of oestrogen, which can cause breast tissue to grow. If you're overweight you're also more likely to have excess fat that can enlarge the breast tissue. For some people losing weight or doing more exercise can help but this may not always improve the condition.

Newborn Baby Boys

Gynecomastia can affect newborn baby boys, because oestrogen passes through the placenta from the mother to the baby. This is temporary and will disappear a few weeks after the baby is born.


During puberty, boys' hormone levels vary. If the level of testosterone drops, oestrogen can cause breast tissue to grow. Many teenage boys have some degree of breast enlargement. Gynaecomastia at puberty usually clears up as boys get older and their hormone levels become more stable.

Older Age

As men get older, they produce less testosterone. Older men also tend to have more body fat, and this can cause more oestrogen to be produced. These changes in hormone levels can lead to excess breast tissue growth.

Who is the best candidate for gynecomastia?

    Gynecomastia surgery candidates include:
  • Men whose condition cannot be corrected through alternative medical treatments.
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing.
  • Nonsmokers and non-drug users.
  • Men with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improving the physical symptoms of gynecomastia.
  • Men who are physically healthy and of relatively normal weight.
  • Men who have realistic expectations.
  • Men whose breast development has stabilized.
  • Men who are bothered by the feeling that their breasts are too large.
