What is gynaecomastia surgery?

Gynaecomastia surgery reduces the size of enlarged male breasts for a flatter, more masculine chest. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon makes an incision along the lower edge of the areola to remove excess glandular tissue. If the enlargement is due to fatty tissue, liposuction is also performed. This approach ensures comprehensive treatment, with immediate, natural-looking results.
