If the enlarged male breasts are result of the accumulation of fatty tissue, the best method for correction is liposuction. Through two small incisions about 2 mm long, a cannula (thin tube) is introduced into the natural crease to remove excess adipose tissue. In patients who have predominantly excess glandular tissue, it is necessary to remove the glandular tissue surgically. This operation is performed through a small semicircular incision in the lower half of the nipple. Sometimes it is necessary to combine these two methods.

In some patients nipples can be enlarged and they have to be reduced and reshaped male nipples in order to achieve a satisfactory result and symmetry.
