There are two types of tissues which can produce a protuberant breast/chest: fat, and glandular breast tissue. In general, the glandular tissue is firm when compared to fat, and may require excision to adequately flatten the chest. If the problematic tissue is fat, then liposuction is a good method to achieve a flatter chest. Further medical tests may be required to check if the underlying problem is of a hormonal nature that requires special treatment.
