The purpose of gynecomastia is to remove excessive tissue that may be gland or just fat.

Although gynecomastia or breast reduction in men is a little-spoken procedure and, consequently, which few men resort to, either by prejudice or adaptation to the aesthetics of their body, the excess mammary gland is treated by a procedure of breast reduction. After all, over development of the male mammary gland affects about 50% of men.

The purpose of gynecomastia is to remove excess tissue that may be gland or just fat, and in extreme situations, it will be necessary to remove skin, similar to what is done in women. The result is extremely gratifying, as it gives the pectoral region the much-desired male form until then.

We can have two types of gynecomastia:

  • Real – Excessive Mammary Gland
  • False – Excess Fat
