Gynecomastia is a condition that affects men of all ages, resulting in enlarged breast glands and excess tissue. This condition can be very difficult to treat through working out or dieting.
Gynecomastia can be caused by different medical conditions such as increases in hormones, obesity, diabetes, anabolic steroid use, etc. If a medical condition exists, the underlying cause must be treated first prior to any surgical intervention.
The surgery to correct gynecomastia can be performed with tumescent liposuction. Here a dilute solution of local anesthetic is injected to the fat compartment above the pectoralis muscle and the excess fat and breast gland is then removed by liposuction. If the gland is persistent or fibrous, this procedure may be combined with a direct gland excision. A direct gland excision is performed through a small peri-areolar incision.
