The demand for male breast correction has been growing lately. The reason for this is partly the increasing demand of men for the perfect body and partly the pathological breast enlargement which is increasingly common (feminine breast = gynecomastia).
Similarly to the female breast, it consists of two components namely glandular tissue and adipose tissue. In general. These two cannot be distinguished from each other. In case of a real gynecomastia, breast prominence is generally due to hypertrophy of glandular tissues, while pseudogynecomastia means that breast prominence is due solely to excessive adipose or to obesity.
If the patient agrees to undergo local anaesthesia, the surgery generally can be carried out as an outpatient treatment. After the intervention, we apply a pressure bandage, and leave a small drain tube in the wound for some days. If the surgery was carried out under general anaesthesia, it is recommended to spend one night at the clinic. Stitches are usually removed after 8 to 10 days. Before removal of stitches, any contact with water is to be avoided. For optimal results, we recommend wearing compression clothes, which is similar to a tight vest. This can be removed after 4 weeks.
