Also known as gynecomastia. The goal of gynecomastia treatment is to reduce breast size in men who are embarrassed by overly large breasts. Reduction methods include liposuction, cutting out excess glandular tissue or using a combination of liposuction and excision. Gynecomastia can be effectively and safely improved or corrected completely.
The surgical approach is selected depending on the size of the gland. In the case of only slightly enlarged glands, we usually opt for a small incision along the circumference of the areola. The scar in such cases is minimal. In the case of larger breasts, we opt for an extended vertical incision to the sides of the breast. Exceptionally, in the case of extensive enlargement and if it is planned to remove the gland as a whole, we opt for an incision in the shape of an inverted T. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and lasts approx. 60 until 90 minutes.
Patients are usually hospitalised for one day. In the case of more extensive gynaecomastia, a two- day stay in hospital is recommended. We recommend that patients wear special elastic underwear that protects the operated areas for three weeks following the procedure. During the subsequent checkups, the surgeon explains the technique of pressure massages of the scar tissue and recommends a special ointment to enhance the healing process. We recommend that patients desist from any strenuous physical activity (sports, lifting heavy loads) for the duration of four weeks.
