What is Gynecomastia Surgery?
Gynecomastia is the condition of enlarged breasts in men that occurs at any stage of a man’s life.
Gynecomastia is often the result of hormonal changes, genetics, obesity, or the use of some medications.
In general, breast enlargement can go away after months to two years from the beginning of puberty, due to the change in hormone levels during puberty.
Gynecomastia surgery helps to remove excess skin and fat in the breast tissue and obtain the ideal masculine chest contours.
Gynecomastia surgery procedure :
Before the operation, the doctor conducts tests for the patient to ensure that the patient is suitable for the operation.
In cases where gynecomastia is mainly caused by excess fatty tissue, liposuction techniques can be used in some cases. The treatment is done either by liposuction or excision.
The surgeon will ask you to stop taking any medications containing aspirin and to stop smoking if you are a smoker
The surgery is performed under anaesthesia
Gynecomastia surgery is done by removing excess fat and tissue in the breast.
The surgeon makes small incisions and inserts a liposuction tube into the breast to remove the fat cells.
After the operation, the patient can go home immediately, wearing a compression bandage to reduce the tumour and cover the chest.
The man returns to daily activity two weeks after the operation and avoids strenuous physical activity for up to six weeks of recovery.
The results are immediate and permanent, and within weeks, the chest takes on a new shape.
Cracks fade with time. The patient must maintain a stable weight and exercise to get a perfect chest.
