Gynecomastia may become a serious aesthetic problem in men characterized by enlargement of breast glands and very often associated with significant fat deposits in the breast area. Most frequently it affects both sides of the chest, even though unilateral enlargement may occur as well. If it is developed, male chest may take the shape of female breasts. Gynecomastia can be surgically treated by removing excess fat and the glandular tissue. The result is a better proportioned, more masculine-contoured upper body.
Surgical removal of excess tissue is performed by excision and liposuction. An incision is made in the areolas to access and remove the glands. Further incisions are made in order to perform liposuction over the entire chest area. The surgery may also include the reduction of areola. It takes about an hour and it is done under general anesthesia.
Following the surgery, you will be placed in an elastic support garment that covers and compresses the chest, to apply pressure to in order to eliminate bleeding and fluid accumulation, and to smooth the final contour. This garment needs to be worn for three to four weeks. You will have to stay at the clinic at least till the next day. Stitches are removed in 7 to 9 days.
The surgery treats the problem entirely. The effect is immediate and lasting. Since fat cells have been removed from the chest area, there can be no new accumulation of fat.
