Breast operation for men

Gynecomastia in Alicante

Gynecomastia is the enlargement of male breasts. Although gynaecomastia is not a serious health problem, it does cause men who suffer from it a lot of complexes because their breasts are larger and more bulging than normal, resembling a woman’s breasts, due to excess fat and skin.

The gynecomastia operation in men consists of removing the fatty tissue and part of the mammary gland through a small incision, which is usually imperceptible, and the results are immediate. In this way, liposuction is performed to remove the excess fat and skin caused by the enlargement. In some more complex cases, in addition to removing excess fat and glandular tissue from the breasts, it is necessary to remove excess skin in order to achieve a firmer and flatter chest.

To achieve the best result in gynaecomastia surgery, the skin must be elastic and firm, and fit well with the new body contours.

Before gynaecomastia surgery, it is necessary to carry out a preliminary study to assess whether there are other methods with which the patient can reduce the excess fat in this area without the need for gynaecomastia surgery, either because some treatment or bad habit is the main cause of the excess fat and tissue and by modifying this treatment or changing the habit, the problem can be reversed.

If this is not possible, or if the cause is something else, male gynecomastia surgery will be performed.
