Gynecomastia is the medical term referring to men with a mammary gland developed beyond the usual.


Gynecomastia is the medical term referring to men with a mammary gland developed beyond the usual. It happens most often in adolescents because of hormonal imbalance, but it can also appear at any age. It usually appears as “pseudogynecomastia” at overweight men and is caused by local fat increase.

The intervention briefly – Procedure

Gynecomastia is corrected with a small incision at the lower part of the nipple. Through there the mammary gland is removed and the rest of the breast undergoes liposuction. Gynecomastia is corrected either under general anesthesia or mild sedation and local anesthesia. If there is great increase and also excessive skin, a quantity of skin will have to be removed and then there will be incisions corresponding to size.


Marks at Gynecomastia will depend on the technique used. They tend to look quite brown during the first 6 weeks, they turn pink in the next 3 months and subsequently they fade and become white. Most patients will have very good-quality scars over time. Scars from other wounds provide a relatively good indication on how they will mature on the breast.


Because Gynecomastia may be caused by hormonal imbalance, before the surgery some hormonal tests will take place, beyond the usual pre-operative check. Do not take herbal medicinal products for about 10 days before the surgical operation or for 3 days afterwards (arnica etc.).

Also, avoid aspirin (salospir), for 7-10 days pre-operatively and anti-inflammatories for 3-4 days pre-operatively. It is always best not to smoke. But if you are a smoker, try stopping for 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after the surgical operation.


If you cannot stop smoking, you will certainly be able to reduce to 5 the cigarettes you smoke daily, which will significantly reduce the possibilities of complications.
