Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure that can help you eliminate the amount of localized fat around the chest area by performing liposuction if this is the only problem the patient presents. On the other hand, if the patient presents enlargement of the breast area due to glandular tissue, this can also be surgically removed by performing a small incision around the areola area.
