Gynecomastia is the condition in which the breast of younger or older men resembles that of a woman. This can be due to a hyperplastic mammary gland or simply due to accumulation of fat. Causes are most often idiopathic and rarely due to hormonal imbalance or due to medication.
The solution indicated for the problem is surgical. Depending on the size and type of excess tissue we perform either small scale liposuction or tissue removal. If the problem is larger we also need to remove excess skin through a small incision around the nipple.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, or light sedation and hospitalization time is up to one day.
