What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia consists of a breast reduction surgery performed on men who have an excess of mammary glands, either due to hormonal, pharmacological, obesity or drug use causes. The operation is usually performed under general anesthesia and requires hospitalization.


Why is it done?

Many men have gynecomastia disorder: pathological enlargement of one or both breasts. This development problem can be due to different causes such as poor estrogen metabolism, hormonal problems, accumulation of fat and obesity. Although it is not a serious health problem, most men who suffer from this pathology go to surgery for an aesthetic issue.

What is the Gynecomastia operation?

The operation consists of making a small incision around the areola to remove accumulations of fat and glandular breast tissue, achieving a firm and flat-looking chest. If the problem of the breasts is only an excess of fatty tissue, the intervention will be carried out through a small incision using a liposuction technique, based on the suction of fat through a hollow cannula attached to a vacuum pump. The scars of this intervention are not visible and the result is totally definitive and satisfactory.


Preparation before the intervention

Before the operation, a medical examination will be carried out on the patient to ensure that he is in a compatible state of health to undergo surgery under general anesthesia.


Care after Gynecomastia intervention

The postoperative period consists of absolute rest for 48 hours after surgery, in a semi-reclined position. The first few days the patient may feel discomfort, and for two weeks should avoid physical activities. You will also need to wear a special girdle for up to 30 days after the operation.

It consists of the removal of excess skin, fat and breast tissue, in order to reduce the volume of the breasts, with the use of the tissue itself or a silicone prosthesis.
