Gynecomastia

We effectively reduce a man’s breast size and help regain self-confidence

Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is an enlargement of the male breast caused by raised estrogen levels leading to overdevelopment of the chest. It is often seen in younger male patients particularly during puberty and commonly disappears after 6-18 months. However, it may remain prevalent and lead to adult gynecomastia, which can cause embarrassment and emotional stress.  Gynecomastia can also be caused by obesity or associated with certain medical conditions related to the thyroid, kidney, or liver.

Male breast correction at FacePlus can effectively reduce a man’s breast size and help regain self-confidence.

Gynecomastia Surgery can benefit men with:

  1. Excess breast tissue and glands
  2. Sagging breasts due to extreme weight loss
  3. Obesity
  4. A hormone imbalance

How is Gynecomastia performed?

The surgical procedure involves making an incision around the nipple. In more severe cases, breast liposuction is performed first to remove excess fat tissue and then a small incision is made around the areola to remove the necessary amount of glandular tissue. In rare cases, skin excision is also required.

Duration:  1 Hour

Incision:  Armpit or around areola

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal: 7 – 10 days after the procedure

Recovery period: 7 Days

Anesthesia: Sedation
