Male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia
What is Gynecomastia?
Excessive development of breasts in men is known as gynecomastia. This benign condition is most often seen during adolescence. Certainly, breast development may be caused by the use of steroids or hormones, or hormone imbalances.
What happens during the surgical intervention? ?
Reduction of overdeveloped breasts of men can be achieved by localized liposuction or by surgical excision of the gland, the technique being determined after consultation by investigating local layout. Along with removal of excess tissue is usually done in a natural skin retraction. In general, at an older age, retraction will be weaker.
When the gland excision is necessary, surgery is performed through a small incision in the areola. Aesthetic surgery for gynecomastia does not last more than 1-2 hours, unless when it is associated with a liposuction of the adjacent areas.
