Gynecomastia is the benign enlargement of male breast glandular tissue and is the most common breast condition in males, giving an unnatural feminine breast look that causes emotional distress. Gynecomastia can be attributed to a variety of drugs and medical conditions, yet it most often occurs in healthy males without any underlying disease. You will be recommended the right surgical solution in order to regain your lost confidence.
Ideal candidates for such surgery are men who:
- Have excess fat/ skin or mammary gland hyperplasia.
- Feel uncomfortable with the look of their chest and often refrain from certain activities.
- Failed to reduce their breast size through exercise and diet.
About the process
Surgery is performed in a fully equipped private clinic. The process may take 1-2 hours, depending on the technique.
General anesthesia or sedation
Incisions and surgical technique
Operation may involve:
- Liposuction: in cases of adipose tissue problems, liposuction is the only intervention required for natural results without any visible scars.
- Resection: Direct excision is used in cases of heavily redundant fibro-glandular tissue or when breast lift and excess skin resection is required – all with areola incision.
- Combination: The desired result often requires a combination of liposuction and excision.
One of the above mentioned techniques will be used to reduce your breast size and improve the chest wall contour.
Recovery and Results
Healing varies among individuals. Some bruising, swelling and numbness is normal after surgery. Most patients are able to resume their daily routine within a few days and return to work within a week. You will be advised to refrain from strenuous physical activity for several weeks after surgery and use the appropriate type of support to minimize swelling.
