General Information

By the surgical treatment of gynecomastia the size of breasts is reduced by removing the fatty tissue and mammary glands. Not always is gynecomastia caused only by enlarged glands. It could happen due to hormonal disbalance, obesity, psychological problems or increasing age. Therefore, doctors distinguish between a plain form of gynecomastia and lipomastia (increasing of adipose tissue). The surgery is done either by an incision around the areola, or by liposuction. During the operation areola can also be reduced if needed. Overall, the surgery is final and treats the problem completely with an immediate and lasting effect.

Consultation with the doctor

Prior to the gynecomastia, there is a detailed discussion with the surgeon about which approach to take and what exactly you expect as an outcome. You will be informed about the surgery duration, possible risks and the postoperative care. Before the surgery, the doctor marks the zones that should be adjusted.

Before and after treatment

Before the surgery the patient undertakes an examination by our internist (blood test, ECG, evaluation of health status). The whole operation takes approximately 1-2 hours and is done under general anesthesia. After the surgery, an elastic support around the chest should be worn for 3-4 weeks to compress the chest, eliminate bleeding, and help deliver the best outcome possible. The hospitalization is normally 1 day. The scars should not be exposed to solar radiation (sun bathing or solarium) for 2 months.
