In brief: Weight loss

Weight loss is one method.
Hormonal therapy is generally not advisable.

In brief: Diet and Exercise

Depending on the situation, diet/exercise suffices when it comes to reducing breast size.
Some patients who experience weight loss however are not happy because of breast “droop”. Very few patients are a good candidate for liposuction surgery of the breasts as a means of reducing breast size. Overall, for appropriate candidates, breast reduction surgery is a very patient pleasing operation.

In brief: LipoSculpt Breasts

Depending of your history (no cancer or extensive fibrocystic changes), liposculpting is a great way to treat some male gyno and femaie gigantomastia.
It in done without ga, has less scars-small insertion sites are hidden. Symmetry can be improved. Selected areas can be reduced (side boob) and still leave cleavage or upper volume intact. A "normal" baseline mammogram should be obtained first.

In brief: Reduce body fat

Use of diet and exercise will sometimes reduce the breast size, but if your lifelong tendancy is to have large and pendulous breasts (including family tendancy), then surgical reduction with liposuction/reduction mammoplasty is the best alternative.

In brief: Surgery is best

Weight loss helps.
Liposuction of the breast can be done, if the breast tissue is not too dense. Make sure you are not on a high-estrogen birth control pill. Otherwise, breast reduction surgery is the only other proven option.

In brief: Scarless Reduction

Scarless breast reduction is a surgical liposuction procedure which is an alternative to the more invasive breast reduction surgery.
Liposuction is completed through 2-4 mm puncture access ports. Fat reduction of the breast can lead to shape change and reduction in the size of the breast. Consider cosmetic surgery review by a surgeon who offers liposuction "scarless" breast reduction.
