Why Doesn’t the Male Breast Get Smaller with Weight Loss?

It is a misconception for men to think they can lose enough weight to get rid of true gynecomastia. True gynecomastia is made up of a combination of breast tissue and fat. Losing weight will only address fat and many times when the fat is gone the breast tissue is even more pronounced, frustrating men even further. The combination of surgical excision with liposuction is the best procedure to date for male breast reduction to get the best result for the man with true gynecomastia.

For the man with “pseudo-gynecomastia”, which is caused by fat alone, then weight loss can be successful, or liposuction can be performed without surgical excision. To find a qualified gynecomastia surgeon, seek out a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that specializes in gynecomastia surgery.
