Time for a visit: First the reason for the problem should be sorted out.Some medications or medical problems can lead to this process and treatment may depend on the findings.If no treatable issues are involved, a cosmetic surgeon can remove any residual glandular tissue and or do liposuction to remove fat.

Gynecomastia: There is a surgical gynecomastia procedure. It involves liposuction to remove the excess fat from the upper chest area. This surgery can also be combined with Pectoral Etching for a more defined look.

See plastic surgeon: Gynecomastia is fairly frequent and the cause is most often unknown, a combination of ultrasonic and conventional liposuction with direct excision of glandular tissue can be a very effective treatment with minimal scarring. You should be within about 10-15 lbs of your ideal weight before considering this. See a surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgeons to discuss your options.
