Breast Reduction in men (Treatment of Gynecomastia)
In men gynecomastia (abnormal growth of breasts) may be seen during or after puberty due to developmental or hormonal causes.
The grade of gynecomastia is determined and if there is an underlying hormonal or metabolical cause, the treatment is done accordingly and after that the morphologic deformity is treated.
The 2 main treatments done in gynecomastia are:
- Liposuction( fat tissue removal by a canule)
- Excision of the excess fat tissue and/or skin
According to the type of the gynecomastia, one or both of these procedures could be done.
