Gynecomastia

Indications

Gynecomastia is the medical term that refers to men with an unusually developed mammary gland. It most often occurs in adolescents with hormonal imbalance but can occur at any age. It usually appears as “pseudogynomastia” in overweight people and is due to a local increase in fat.

The operation briefly

Gynecomastia

The Gynecomastia is corrected with a small incision in the lower limit of the teat. From there, the mammary gland is removed and liposuction is performed on the rest of the breast. Gynecomastia is corrected either with general anesthesia or intoxication and local anesthesia. If there is a large increase and excess of skin, a quantity of skin should be removed and then there will be incisions proportional to the size.

Scars

The marks on Gynecomastia will depend on the technique used. They tend to be quite brown in the first 6 weeks, turn pink in the next 3 months and then fade and turn white. Most of the patients will have very good quality scars over time. Scars from other wounds give a relatively good indication of how they will mature in the chest.

Medicines

Because Gynecomastia can be due to hormonal imbalance, some hormonal tests will be performed preoperatively, in addition to the usual preoperative examination. Do not take herbal medicines for about 10 days before surgery or for 3 days after (arnica etc.). Also avoid aspirin (salospir), 7-10 days preoperatively, and anti-inflammatory 3-4 days preoperatively. It is always better if you do not smoke. But if you are a smoker, try to quit smoking for 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery.

Smoking

If you can not quit smoking, you will definitely be able to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke per day to 5, which will significantly reduce the chances of complications.
