Types of Gynaecomastia surgery:

There are different types of gynecomastia surgery, depending on the cause and extent of the breast enlargement. Here are the main types:


This is the most common procedure for gynecomastia. It involves removing excess fat from the breast area but not the breast gland tissue itself. It is suitable for those whose gynecomastia is primarily due to excess fatty tissue.


This technique is used when gynaecomastia is caused by excess glandular breast tissue or when excess skin needs to be removed. Mr. Erdmann makes an incision and removes the excess glandular tissue, fat, and sometimes skin.

Combination of liposuction & excision:

In most cases, both liposuction and excision techniques are used together. This is especially common when there is a significant amount of both fatty tissue and glandular tissue to be removed.

Free nipple graft:

In severe cases of gynecomastia, or when there is significant skin sagging, the nipple may need to be removed and regrafted to a higher position on the chest along with removing the excess skin. This is more common in massive weight loss patients.
The choice of surgical technique depends on the individual patient’s needs, the cause of the gynecomastia, and Mr. Matt Erdmann’s recommendation for each specific case.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Ideal candidates for Gynaecomastia surgery are men who experience discomfort or self-consciousness due to enlarged breast tissue. Those with a stable weight, non-smokers, and individuals without serious health conditions that can hinder healing are often considered suitable for the procedure.

What results can I realistically expect with a Gynaecomastia?


Flatter chest contour:

One of the primary outcomes of the procedure is a noticeably flatter chest, eliminating the pronounced appearance often associated with Gynaecomastia.

Natural-looking outcome:

Mr. Erdmann prides himself on ensuring that the results, while significant, still retain a natural look, avoiding any overt signs of surgical intervention.
