The male chest appears that of females in patients with gynecomastia and in patients
presenting after huge weight loss. The disadvantages of reduction mammaplasty in men are the visible
scars on the chest wall. The aim of the chest lifting is to reposition the breast in a male appearance by
thinning the amount of glandular and fatty tissue and avoiding noticeable scars in the chest wall, the
wound being hidden in the anterior axillary line.
