Some men experience fatty tissue in the male breasts, which can often lead to emotional distress and sometimes even an unwillingness to take off a shirt in public. This increase in tissue is often genetically inherited or hormonal in nature. Excess skin around the chest can also occur after dramatic weight loss. Gynecomastia is the surgical removal of excess fatty tissue and possibly the removal of excess skin from the male chest.
This procedure is performed either under a local anesthetic with sedation or a general anesthetic in our fully accredited Oakville clinic. Liposuction techniques are used to remove the excess fatty deposits, which results in a better, more masculine chest contour. Excess skin from the chest can also be removed at this time if required.
