Gynecomastia

Surgical treatment consists in the removal of the gland through a small incision in the areola or the removal of the fat with liposuction or even combining both techniques with local anesthetic and sedation. Surgery tends to last little more than one hour.


How is it treated

Gynecomastia occurs when the mammary gland in the man develops abnormally and produces an increase in the volume of the breasts, particularly below the areola, due to the overgrowth of the mammary gland tissue. This can produce a cosmetic disorder causing very significant emotional complexes or embarrassment due to the similarity in appearance to the breasts of a woman.

Most commonly Gynecomastia may appear spontaneously in puberty, or it may be caused by taking certain medications or certain substances such as cannabis. Less commonly, the gynecomastia can be caused by endocrine diseases.

The procedure may vary depending on whether glandular excess is the primary cause of the breast enlargement, in which case it must be removed with a scalpel and followed or not by liposuction. The incision is made on the edge of the areola removing the excess glandular tissue, fat and excess skin. If liposuction is used to remove excess fat, the cannula is normally inserted through the existing incisions.

Recovery after corrective surgery of Gynecomastia

After the procedure you will feel some discomfort for a few days and the greater part of the swelling will disappear within a few weeks, although the final result of the surgery will not be fully noticeable until after three months or more.

You can return to your usual activities within one or two days after surgery and if there are sutures, these are removed within one or two weeks after the procedure.

The results of this type of intervention are good and if the patient has realistic expectations beforehand, he tends to be very satisfied with his new appearance.
