Gynecomasita (Breast Growth in Men)

Breast growth in men can lead to both social, psychological and visual difficulties. Breast sizes, which often do not shrink despite sports and diet, lead to the search for solutions in many men.

This breast growth may be due to increased adipose tissue of the breast (due to unbalanced nutrition and genetic structure) or the growth of the mammary gland (hormonally sourced).

If there is no evidence of hormonal disorder, surgery is the solution of gynecomastia. It is applied in the form of removing excess adipose tissue inside with liposuction and removing breast tissue with a incision made under the nipple if necessary.

In advanced cases where the breast skin also sags, it may be necessary to remove the skin.

How to follow a treatment path varies according to the breast structure and according to the preferences of the physician.

Special corset is used for one month after gynecomastia surgery. It is applied under general anesthesia. Recovery time is a week.
