Gynecomastia is a procedure that removes fat and /or glandular tissue from the breasts and, in extreme cases, removes excess skin resulting in a contoured chest that is flatter and firmer.
Enlarged breast on young boys last only a few years and generally resolved by age 18. Enlarged breast on a man, however, can be uncomfortable, as well as socially and psychologically devastating
Gynecomastia affects approximately 40 to 60 percent of men. There is no known cause for gynecomastia, although there has been some correlation with various drugs or medical conditions. It can be associated with obesity, hormonal metabolism imbalance, liver disease or medical causes. Prior to choosing a surgical solution for gynecomastia, a period of diet and exercise is recommended.
You will experience some discomfort for several days. For the first few days after surgery you will wear surgical compression garment. Most discomfort associated with breast surgical can be controlled with oral medication prescribed by your surgeon.
