In difficult cases of gynecomastia, the weightof excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola. In these cases the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.
Plastic surgery to correct the gynecomastia is technically called Reduction Mammaplasty.
