How does male breast surgery work?

If you suspect gynecomastia...


If you suspect gynecomastia, you must first have an endocrinological examination. If this diagnosis is confirmed, you can contact a plastic surgeon who will further assess your condition and recommend a suitable type of treatment.

The diagnosis of gynecomastia is a condition in which the mammary gland grows in men due to hormonal imbalance. Gynecomastia is also often associated with obesity, where body fat deposits on the swollen gland. These days, every fifth man has experience with this problem.

And how does such a procedure go? The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, but it always depends on the extent of the problem and the general condition of the patient. Normally, however, the enlarged gland is removed and then the excess fat is removed by liposuction. The scar after the procedure is usually slight, the stitches are absorbable and therefore it is not necessary to remove them.

How long does hospitalization last? Ideally, hospitalization does not take more than 1-2 days. After the procedure, it is necessary to set the sleep mode in-home treatment to 7-10 days. Patients wear an elastic bandage and elastic underwear for about 4 to 5 days after the procedure.
