Male reduction mammaplasty is any type of surgery employed with the goal of reducing the enlarged male chest tissue that comes along with gynecomastia. There are several techniques plastic surgeons can use during this procedure.

Glandular breast tissue is usually removed using breast-tissue excision. Fatty tissue, on the other hand, is taken out with a liposuction procedure. If the ratio of glandular breast tissue to fatty tissue leans heavily in either direction, only one of these procedures may be needed during male reduction mammaplasty. If the ratio is closer to even, it may be best to employ both procedures.
