Gynaecomastia (enlargement of a man’s breast) is a surgical procedure under cosmetology that is concerned with the correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men. The condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men is common in men of any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs.
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include local anesthesia, combined with intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Excision techniques are recommended where glandular breast tissue or excess skin must be removed to correct Gynaecomastia. Excision is also necessary if the areola will be reduced, or the nipple is repositioned to a more natural male contour. Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preferences.
Sometimes Gynaecomastia is treated with both liposuction & excision, depending on the severances of the case.
