In some cases, exercise or weight loss can reduce the appearance of “man boobs”, but for others, surgery will provide the best results to reduce the feminine appearance of this excess fatty tissue. Gynecomastia also known as male breast reduction in Toronto can sculpt the chest and improve overall confidence with ideal results. Verso surgery Centre is proud to offer an elite surgical centre and expert plastic surgeons who specialize in body contouring, so you’ll be advised on multiple treatment options to target the unwanted tissue and reach your aesthetic goals.

What Is A gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia: The simplest definition of gynecomastia is excess breast tissue present in males. In our practice, male breast reduction is often chosen by men who are otherwise fit, but who have persistent, enlarged breast tissue. The easiest way to tell if male breasts are a result of excess fat or glandular tissue is that glandular tissue is firm compared to fat, and it is often concentrated under the Nipple Areolar Complex. Excess tissue concentrated under the nipples can result in enlarged or puffy nipples and is a common indicator of true gynecomastia. For some patients, the enlarged tissue can present even beyond the nipple, and the expert plastic surgeons at Verso Surgery Centre can assess whether your aesthetic goals will best be achieved with gynecomastia surgery or another treatment option

During your consultation, we will carefully assess your unique case and aesthetic goals to determine the most suitable treatment option. Whether gynecomastia surgery or an alternative approach is recommended, you can trust our team’s precision and artistry to deliver the desired results.


What causes Gynecomastia?

It’s estimated that up to 60% of men can experience this physical characteristic, so if you suffer from this issue, you’re not alone. Puffy nipples and excess breast tissue are most common for young men during puberty, but in many of those cases, it resolves by itself naturally into adulthood. However, when enlarged breast tissue does not seem to subside over time, surgical options can provide the best results to restore a masculine contour to the chest. This straightforward procedure is well-tolerated and common.

Hormones and other factors: For some men, dropping testosterone levels can cause the condition to persist past puberty, or breast tissue can appear during adulthood. Regardless of the time of life when gynecomastia presents, the effects can be challenging for men who feel that the masculine shape they desire is unattainable. This condition can be triggered by hormonal shifts that cause a higher ratio of estrogen to androgen. In most cases, the cause of the hormonal shift is unknown, but certain medications can play a role. Users of anabolic steroids and marijuana may find themselves at a higher risk, as will those with a genetic predisposition toward developing male breasts.

For men who are overweight or obese, breast fat may increase along with fatty deposits throughout the rest of the body. Even if the development of fat in the chest seems disproportionate, this does not always indicate true gynecomastia. The difference rests on the presence of hypertrophic (enlarged) breast tissue, which is consists of significant glandular (breast) tissue with or without excess fat. Fat without enlarged breast tissue may be treated with liposuction, but depending on your overall health and physique, your surgeon will be able to make a professional recommendation on the treatment method that will be most effective and healthy in the long term, ensuring your satisfaction.

This popular fat-reducer allows for the targeted removal of fat and glandular tissue cells to create a firmer and flatter-looking chest. Thanks to modern technology and advanced liposuction methods, this process is conducted with minimal scarring. In fact, the incision used can be so small that it is virtually invisible once healed.
