Gynecomastia is caused by excessive development in the tissue of the male breast region
Do you suffer from excess breasts? Do you avoid being shirtless to avoid embarrassment? There are several ways to treat gynecomastia, and you no longer have to hide in loose-fitting shirts because of excess breasts. Each case must be studied individually to arrive at the most suitable method, with the objective of eliminating male breasts once and for all.
Gynecomastia is caused by excessive development in the tissue of the male breast region. They occur mainly in the phases of hormonal changes such as in childhood, adolescence and old age.
How to treat Gynecomastia?
Treatment will depend on the degree of classification of this anomaly, which is classified as grade I, grade II and grade III:
Grade I: with little excess skin and fatty tissue in the chest, they are easier to remove. It consists of a button located in the glandular tissue around the areola.
Grade II: presents with an excess of adipose tissue, where the tissue margins are not defined.
Grade III: large excess of skin, patients of this grade need incisions around the areola, in the skin, or repositioning of the nipple-areola complex.
We can still observe false gynecomastia, where there is excess fat, without glandular proliferation, mimicking breast enlargement. This type is more common in overweight patients.
There are three techniques that can assist in the removal of male breasts: glandular resection, liposuction and reduction mammoplasty.
“Before performing the surgery, the patient must reflect on his decision. If the breasts interfere physically and psychologically, surgery is expressly recommended ”, explains the plastic surgeon, Kristen P. Burris.
Indicated in patients who do not have excess skin and have little or no fat associated with excess breast tissue. It can be associated with liposuction in cases of fat in the pectoral region in addition to the hyperdeveloped gland.
It is indicated for patients with a small accumulation of fats in the pectoral muscle, often simulating gynecomastia. In cases where there is no glandular proliferation, only fat can be done in isolation. In cases where there is a hyperdeveloped mammary gland, it is associated with glandular resection.
The type of liposuction performed can be traditional, vibroliposuction, or even ultrasonic liposuction.
