What are the techniques for gynecomastia surgery?

The purpose of gyno surgery is to reduce the size of male breasts. There are three major techniques to perform male breast reduction in Dubai which include;

  • Liposuction – this technique is suitable for men who have excess fat in the chest area and their skin elasticity is good. It involves making a tiny incision along with the areola and inserting a hollow metal cannula through it. This cannula is attached to a suction pump that drains the excess fat out of the body.
  • Surgical removal of extra tissues – this technique is suitable for men whose skin elasticity is not good. It involves making an incision at the lower hemisphere of the chest along with the areola and excising the tissues near the breast area. As a result, your chest gets the desired shape.
  • A combination of liposuction and surgical excision – this technique involves both the above-mentioned techniques.
