GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY (Male Breast Reduction Surgery)
What Is It?
It is a symptom of the mammary gland that grows like a woman’s breast because of the accumulation of mammary tissue and fatty tissue in the male’s breast. Mostly there are no symptoms but if the mammary glands are enlarged, you will feel intermittent pain or tenderness. Usually, most cases are treated for cosmetic reasons.
Checking Your Simon Grade
Simon Grade is based on dividing gynecomastia into four grades according to the degree of chest development. There are four grades that are 1, 2-a, 2-b and 3; however, it is difficult to apply to obese patients with gynecomastia. The reason is because it is difficult to visually determine whether breast enlargement is caused by mammary gland hyperplasia or excessive fat. Therefore, ultrasonography requires a minimum of 2 cm of mammary gland tissue to be diagnosed with grade 2 or higher.
It all depends on what grade are you at and our doctor will make a decision based on simon grade through specific diagnosis. There are 4 types of detail gynecomastia surgeries that we provide for each grade.
Simon Grade Classification
Small enlargement, No skin excess
Moderate enlargement, No skin excess
Moderate enlargement with extra skin
Marked enlargement with extra skin

It can be said that the level of breast enlargement is within the areola.
Local anesthesia after sleep anesthesia can be improved by general surgical method to remove excessively distributed adipose tissue and mammary gland tissue
Grade 2-a and Grade 2-b
** Only difference between grade 2a and 2b are excessive skin exist.
Person who has excessive areola range but not severely sagging
Since general surgery is difficult to improve, a wide range of liposuction should be needed.
An additional Apolex (Equipment that promotes skin contraction) which applies high frequency massage to the lower part of skin is used to shrink the skin for filling up empty spaces and prevent side effects such as saggy chest. It also provides a compression suit that allows you to refine your chest line and induce a natural contraction of the skin into the voids.
With breast enlargement and severe drainage
Mammary gland removal and liposuction are also widely practiced
Like grade 2-a and 2-b, it can be prevented from sagging only by actively treating skin contraction through Apolex and compression suit.
Typically non-Asian people have this symptom

Effects And Expectations
Reborn with confident manly breast
1. Sleep sedation is injected before incision. And 4 mm of incision is begun under the armpit to inject a tumescent solution (Local anesthetic) afterward. Tumescent machine is used for softening the fat mammary gland and water is added to shrink the blood vessels. It will be less bleeding (less hemorrhage) as a result.
2. By grasping the distribution and size of the mammary gland tissue, the mammary gland tissue layer is completely removed and the remaining fat layer is smoothed with special equipment (Apolex).
Apolex lifting: Mammary fat dissolving technology
Used to dissolve the fat
To increase density
Prevent fattening after surgery (elevates collagen)
3. Unnecessary fat tissue is removed except for 5mm of subcutaneous fat.
RF Assist Lipoplasty: Use a liposuction machine called Medela
4. Remove fat mammary around nipple area, and suture afterward.
5. After the suture, finish with a compression bandage so that no scar is left.
