You feel unmanly and are shy about showing your upper body in public, or even to your partner. Are you suffering enormously due to the presence of enlarged breast tissue?

WHAT HAPPENS DURING GYNAECOMASTIA SURGERY?
Gynaecomastia is a benign growth in the mammary tissue area of a man. It can occur on one or both sides. Gynaecomastia is different from so-called pseudo-gynaecomastia (lipomastia), which can be present in heavily overweight individuals due to excessive fat depositation on the chest.
Causes of the condition include hormonal imbalances during puberty, medications, or an age-related change in hormones in the body. In general, diet and exercise alone will not lead to a sufficient change of shape and the only option for an aesthetically pleasing look is surgery, although serious illness must be ruled out beforehand.
In minor cases glandular tissue can be suctioned out; in more serious cases the gland must be removed through an incision at the edge of the nipple. Depending on the severity of the case, the procedure can either be done under local anaesthesia on an out-patient basis, or in-patient under general anaesthesia.

WHERE WILL THE GYNAECOMASTIA OPERATION TAKE PLACE?
The procedure must be adjusted for each individual case hence the suction of fat will be done as indicated on either an out-patient or in-patient basis, depending on what is indicated, and is done by our specialists in plastic and cosmetic surgery in our very modern clinic. It can be performed under local anaesthesia, or so-called tumescent local anaesthesia.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BE AWARE OF AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
Afterwards, in both cases, a compression garment must be worn for six weeks to optimise the results. Physical rest is required for about one week. The operation results are permanent.
