Description of the procedure::

Gynecomastia is an overly developed breast gland in men. It can be fat (lipomastia) or glandular. The treatment can be performed in two ways. The excessively developed breast can be sucked (liposuction) or removed with a surgical incision.

For the sake of our patients’ well-being, we suggest that liposuction be performed at the beginning because it leaves no traces of surgical intervention and, therefore, the results are better than in the case of surgical excision of the mammary gland. In some cases, both methods are combined at the same time.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. The incision of the skin through which the fat is suctioned is performed in the lower pole of the gland. The incision used to remove glandular tissue is made at the border of the aureole. The treatment lasts about 2 hours.

Post-treatment recommendations::

Depending on the extent of the procedure and the type of anaesthesia, the patient can go home after the surgery. Then, for a few days, it is necessary to report for checkups and change of dressings. Sutures are to be removed between 5 and 10 days. After the treatment, it is necessary to wear a compression belt for about 4 weeks.

Time of incapacity for work::

Usually, there is no need to stop working. Depending on individual medical recommendations, the intensity of physical exercise should be reduced.
