Gynecomastia surgery

Gynecomastia is a medical term that describes a mild excess of male breast tissue, which is usually reversible. In itself, it is not a risk factor for the development of men’s breast cancer. It can occur at any age, more often it occurs in two groups: adolescent boys and older men.

The gynecomastia treatment is intended for men who have glandular or fat tissue in their breasts. Loose skin can also be a problem. Gynecomastia treatment involves the removal of adipose tissue and breast glandular tissue in men. In some cases, it is also necessary to remove excess skin. If the patient’s body fat predominates, it is enough to remove its excess by aspiration. In the event of a predominance of glandular tissue, the gland is surgically removed.

Not every plastic surgeon is authorized to perform breast surgery. This should be borne in mind when making decisions about undergoing breast surgery. You should also pay attention to the clinic, in particular the conditions, equipment and medical team. Quality and safety are paramount. Before consulting, read the consent to the procedure to discuss any ambiguities related to the procedure. Patients qualified for surgery come to the clinic in the morning on the day of surgery. You should be fasting, without food or drink. Remember to take the test results and medicines that you take permanently. Most often, it is recommended to perform a set of about 15 screening tests, such as morphology, blood clotting and sugar levels, but the plastic surgeon will adjust individually which tests should be performed.

After surgery, the patient should stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. After returning home, it is necessary to wear a special surgical corset for about seven weeks. You should not carry weights and do intense physical exercises for a period of about 8 weeks. Avoid sunlight for six months. The full recovery period can take up to a year.

For safety reasons, the operation plan is determined individually between the patient and the surgeon during the pre-surgery consultation. Goals and expectations must go hand in hand with real possibilities and safety at the highest level.
