Gynecomastia (or enlargement of the adipose tissue around the chest in men) is usually considered a shameful and self-deprecating defect. It is important to be aware that the problem is not just about appearance. Enlargement of glandular breast tissue in males can be a symptom of disorders and hormonal dysfunctions. Therefore, if you are struggling with this problem, don't wait - visit a specialist for your health and well-being.

How it’s done

Gynecomastia usually occurs in adolescence or in adult men, usually in their fifties. There may be many causes, including: hereditary conditions, obesity, hormonal imbalance, the use of estrogen or steroid medications, thyroid, liver or kidney disorders… The specialist will assess whether you suffer from pseudo-gynecomastia or glandular gynecomastia and will tailor further tests and treatment, individually.

In the case of pseudo-gynecomastia, liposuction or laser lipolysis are used to reduce the breast gland. After getting rid of excess fat, the chest area will have a firmer appearance.

If you need a procedure, your doctor will discuss all the aspects with you.

It should be noted that patients after breast reduction surgery may experience bruising and mild discomfort. You can usually return to your daily activities within a few days. After the appropriate recovery time, diet and physical exercise are advised to prevent re-growth of adipose tissue around the chest.
