Breast reduction in men
Prior to surgical treatment of male breast development, one should basically be examined by his / her own doctor for the exclusion of a medical cause of breast development such as a hormone disorder. Male breast development may be due to either increased fat filling, increased glandular formation or, most often, a combination. During the preliminary study, the surgeon will review the operation and its risks.
The procedure is usually performed by liposuction and removal of the glandular tissue via the nipple. If there is a skin excess at the same time, this is removed as in women: see breast lift. The operation is performed in local anesthesia or in full anesthesia depending on size.
The risks are post-operative bleeding, sensory disturbances, irregularities, and common complications that may occur with any surgical procedure. Be aware that the shelf life of the result varies greatly from patient to patient depending on genetic conditions, tissue conditions, external conditions, lifestyles, fluctuating weight, etc. In particular, the mammary gland tissue may be increased again by alcohol consumption, anabolic steroids, obesity, certain drugs and hormone disorders. Disregarding the above, the expected duration of the treatment outcome is usually the rest of your life.
Breast formation in men (Gynecomastia)
Breast (gynecomastia) in men is often a normal condition and occurs in approx. 40% of boys in puberty. Gynecomastia may be present unilaterally (one breast) or double sided (both breasts). This is probably due to hormonal effects, although not seen in any blood tests.
Before the operation, another cause of the condition is excluded: obesity, alcohol abuse, abuse of anabolic steroids, hormone-producing nodules in testes and kidneys, and metabolic disorders. If you are overweight, we recommend a weight loss before surgery.
During the consultation, the breasts, stomach and testicles are examined and you will be informed of the operation. The operation lasts approx. 1-2 hours and you will be printed the same day.
