For various reasons, men can develop small breasts and the breast can be made up of varying proportions of skin, fat and breast tissue depending on the individual and also the cause.

Surgical management of gynaecomastia can involve liposuction, excision of the breast tissue and overlying skin and also nipple repositioning.
