The major component is the breast tissue gland in development of male breasts which an important factor in Gynecomastia.

However, there are many surgeons who perform this surgery using the technique of liposuction without removing the breast gland. The techniques that are used today includes: tumescent, ultrasonic, smart and sharp liposuction cannula.
