Breast enlargement can pose a significant confidence issue for men. Male breasts are not only an aesthetic problem but also impact overall satisfaction with appearance, representing a complex for many men.
In medical terms, gynecomastia can occur at any age and for various reasons, either during puberty under the influence of hormones or later in life. "True" gynecomastia involves an increase in glandular tissue in a man's chest, while pseudo-gynecomastia occurs when the breasts are enlarged primarily due to an increase in fatty tissue.
If enlarged male breasts are the result of the accumulation of fatty tissue, the best correction method is liposuction. A thin tube (cannula) is inserted into the natural crease through two small incisions approximately 2mm in length, and excess fatty tissue is removed. In patients with excess glandular tissue, it is necessary to surgically remove the glandular tissue. This operation is performed through a small semicircular incision in the lower half of the nipple. Sometimes, it is necessary to combine these two methods. The procedure itself takes one to two hours, and complete recovery occurs after about ten days.
Similarly, patients who require male breast reduction may undergo reduction and reshaping of the nipples to achieve satisfactory results and symmetry.
After the surgery, the results are permanent, but it is important to note that changes in the appearance of male breasts can occur with age and fluctuations in weight. Following the operation, it is necessary to follow the doctor's recommendations to maintain the results.
Candidates for breast reduction surgery are men over the age of 18 who meet the necessary health prerequisites for the operation.
