Gynecomastia (male breast reduction) is an operation that aims to reduce the amount of breast tissue and excess skin in men who have developed a breast enlargement and/or unwanted form. The shape of the breasts can be affected by inheritance, weight loss, and weight gain as well as by drugs and other substances. The treatment usually involves a combination of liposuction and reduction of the amount of mammary gland as well as any excess skin on the breasts.
Consultation is Must
Before you can be set up for the desired surgery, you must come to a consultation where you get thorough information about the procedure. We want to see if you are suitable for an operation and what results we can achieve. We always try to describe as realistically as possible what the operation entails, what you can expect for results and any possible complications that may arise. Each operation is planned uniquely for you and based on your circumstances.
As the interest in plastic surgery is increasing among men, Gynecomastia surgery is climbing ever higher on the plastic surgical list. Gynecomastia involves enlargement of the mammary gland tissue in men. Surgical procedures remove excess fat and/or glandular tissue to provide a flatter and firmer chest.
Gynecomastia is very rarely performed in public health care, as it is usually considered a purely aesthetic intervention that one can finance on their own. In some cases, however, hormone sampling is required and in some cases a referral can be obtained through the public health service. Therefore, visit your health care center before you make an appointment for your consultation with us.
