There are very few things more embarrassing for a man than having “man boobs.” And what’s even more frustrating is that this condition is biological for the most part, meaning that there’s not much men can do to prevent it.

Gynecomastia is a condition caused by a hormonal imbalance of testosterone and estrogen that creates excess breast tissue.

While gynecomastia can cause men to feel self-conscious about their appearance, Dr. Nukta offers gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction surgery) to eliminate man boobs and help men achieve a more defined and masculine chest. 

This blog will explore the ways that gynecomastia surgery is performed and how this procedure can benefit you!

How Is Gynecomastia Surgery Done?

Depending on the cause of your gynecomastia, liposuction and/or surgical excision will be used to help you achieve your desired results. 


If your gynecomastia is caused by excess subcutaneous fat in the chest, liposuction surgery will be used to remove the fat. Liposuction is known for removing fat from various areas of the body, including the abdomen, arms, hips, thighs, and buttocks. When used in the chest, this suction-based fat removal technique can eliminate the presence of pseudogynecomastia (gynecomastia caused by excess fat). 

Surgical Excision

Gynecomastia can also be caused by excess breast tissue. To remove this, tDr. Nukta will make a small incision in the breast and surgically remove the excess tissue. While this is a surgical procedure, the incision used is very small (so the resulting scar will be small), the surgery is safe and effective, and it offers great results. 

How to Know Which Technique Is Right for You

At your consultation, Dr. Nukta will perform a thorough evaluation of your chest to determine the cause of your gynecomastia. 

If your man boobs are caused by stubborn fat in the area, he will schedule a liposuction treatment; if the condition is caused by excess breast tissue in the chest, he will schedule a surgical tissue reduction; and if both fat and excess tissue are present, then he will schedule a combination procedure. 

What Are the Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery?

The benefits of gynecomastia surgery are both physical and psychological. In the end, this procedure can help men achieve a more masculine appearance. Their results can help them feel more comfortable with how they look, which can allow them to wear the shirts they’ve always wanted but felt too self-conscious to wear before. 

This procedure can also help men feel more confident with their shirts off, whether that be at the pool or during intimate times with their partner. 

If you are feeling embarrassed about your man boobs, there’s no sense in waiting to have them corrected.
