About the procedure
Gynecomastia are excessively large male breasts. They can be reduced with surgery.
Types of procedure
Considering the patient’s state we can perform the corrective surgery in three different ways which can be combined:
– Liposuction: sucking out excess fat and thereby reduce the size of the breasts;
– Cutting out glands: in men with pronounced mammary gland, it needs to be surgically removed which we do through a semicircular cut at the outer ring;
– Cutting out excess skin: in the case of drastic weight loss or greater reduction of the volume, excess skin can be left which needs to be surgically removed.
In this procedure, the patient may go home a few hours after the surgery. The recovery itself is fast (a few days after the procedure he can go to work if it does not involve serious physicality). Complications (accumulation of blood or pus in the area of the breast) are minimal in the liposuction technique.
There is swelling present which on the outside is not visible and is only a distraction so that the patient does not see the result. It can last for two to three months, depending on the body’s reaction.
The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia. The patient usually goes home on the same day. In the case of cutting out tissue, we insert drainage tubes.
