Gynecomastia is characterized by the increased volume of the men’s breast.

Increased volume of breast in men doesn’t threaten their lives, however, the aesthetic defect can bring certain difficulties, especially when a patient is athletically built and has more than one workout in a gym per week.

There are several causes of gynecomastia:

  • Physique, i.e. the peculiarity of the body type that includes some “feminine” traits, such as wide hips, fat deposition in the middle area of the body, rather narrow shoulders and excess breast volume. Such features are very difficult to be changed naturally, so the most effective method is surgical correction.
  • Taking drugs for muscle development in bodybuilding. In this case the glandular tissue is increased, so the only way to remove it is a plastic surgery.
  • Excess body weight. The chest can store large amounts of fat, especially in combination with the above factors.
  • Hormonal imbalance. Gynecomastia can be caused by serious problems in the field of hormone, such as pituitary tumor, for example.
  • Breast cancer in men is rare, but the diagnosis can be removed only after the histological examination of the dense breast sections after their removal. A specialist in breast oncology takes part in the examination and operation.

Therefore gynecomastia is not purely a cosmetic problem and requires a detailed examination before making a decision about the necessity of surgery.

The treatment is surgery unless contraindicated. Depending on the defect type the following methods in various combinations can be used: liposuction, direct removal of glandular tissues and skin tightening.

Before the operation a brief examination is conducted

When using the method developed by me, the trace after the surgery is a small scar on the edge of the areola that becomes inconspicuous after the final healing. The intradermal absorbable sutures are applied, so that it is not necessary to remove them after the operation. The rehabilitation period is short and does not require prolonged hospitalization. Typically, the patient is discharged from the department the next day and after one –two more days of rest they can return to normal lifestyle. It is required to wear special compression underwear for 2-4 weeks. Physical activity and sport should be abolished for 3-4 weeks after the operation.
