Man breast reduction surgery, or man boob reduction surgery, also known as Gynecomastia is a popular plastic surgery procedure to give a flat masculine chest in men. This surgery removes extra fat and glandular tissue either through liposuction alone or through liposuction and excision where the breast tissue is too hard to be sucked from small liposuction cannulae.
Gynecomastia in India with IndiCure is done by some of the best cosmetic surgeons the country has to offer. Handpicked by IndiCure, are private cosmetic surgery clinics and hospitals that are equivalent to their western counterparts in terms of excellence, safety standards and modus operandi. Treatment of gynecomastia is done with highly advanced liposuction cannulae and in only less than 2% of medical cases an open excision is also required. For males who have very large breasts, the surgery is similar to that of female breast reduction surgery.
Men above 18, with enlarged chest, giving an appearance like female breast, who feel conscious about their appearance could get male breast reduction surgery done. The best candidates for gynecomastia are men above 18, not overweight, with elastic and firm skin, physically healthy and emotionally stable and those who understand the procedure along with its risk as well.
Male breast reduction surgery can be performed under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia depending upon how extensive the surgery is to be performed; and upon you and surgeon’s preference. The procedure takes between 1-2 hours.
Most of the times, gynecomastia surgeons remove the fat and tissue through Liposuction only, where the surgeon makes tiny incisions around the areola and inserts the cannula to remove the excess fat. Rarely, when the glandular tissue is too hard, an open incision is required. You would be advised to wear a pressure garment immediately after the surgery so that the skin shrinks properly.
You would stay at the hospital for a night after the surgery to make sure you are recovering well and after another 5-6 days of recovery you are allowed to fly back to your country.

Gynecomastia or Male breast reduction
I had only heard about India from my parents who had left the place in their thirties. I had always wanted to see India and since the cost of cosmetic surgery in India was pretty less as compared to what I would pay in England, I decided to go ahead. I am so happy with the results of the surgery.
I used to feel so awkward about my man boobs- I almost stopped going to the swimming pool and joined a gym instead. My girl friend always had a point to tease me.
Now, that I have got rid of those boobs, I feel so confident and have joined the pool again!!
