part is formed mostly by fat tissue, it can be corrected by
liposuction. If the excessive part formed by the glandular
tissue, these tissue will be removed by making a small
incision on the nipple.

The same treatment will be done also for the second
level gynecomastia. For the third level of gynecomastia
the excessive skin must also be removed in addition to
the other procedures.There can be some permanent
scars depending on the amount of  skin removed. The
clarity of the scars change according to the skin type.
