The minimal invasive gynecomastia-male breast reduction technique is done through a very small incision. First, liposuction is performed. This will remove fat tissue from around the gland and make it easier to remove. A small sharp fork-like knife is inserted through the incision.  The tissue is released which is holding the gland in its' anatomical position. The gynecomastia gland can know be pulled out of the small incision intact. Please examine the photos below.  The photos are of a patient of Miguel A. Delgado, MD a gynecomastia specialist in San Francisco, California.
