Service Description

Gynecomastia is a condition in which man’s breast tissues increase their size noticeably. Gynecomastia literally means "woman's breast".

This increase in tissue commonly occurs in periods when man experiences hormonal changes, such as childhood, adolescence and old age.It is usually a benign (noncancerous) condition that can occur due to many different hormonal changes, or the cause may be unknown.

Surgery may be an option thatwould help to remove the tissuesexcess. Often, if the gynecomastia symptoms appear during puberty, it is advised to wait up to two years to allow natural regression of the breast tissue. If it doesn’t patients can consider a gynecomastia surgery.

This procedure allows the tissues edges to progressively decrease without unwanted side effects. Complicated conditions of gynecomastia may require an open surgery procedure, where an incision is made in the breast tissue and excess tissue is removed.

There are different types of surgical procedures that can be used, including the following:

Liposuction

It allows to progressively decreasing the tissues edges without unwanted side effects. Complicated conditions of gynecomastia may require an open surgery procedure, in which an incision is made in the breast tissue and excess tissue is removed.

Endoscopic surgery

Estimated surgery time: 2 to 3 hours.

Estimated recovery time: 8 to 10 days.
