What is gynecomastia surgery?
Surgery for gynecomastia corrects the abnormal growth of mammary glands in humans. Gynecomastia is often seen during puberty and sometimes disappears naturally without the need for surgery.
When this abnormality occurs before puberty or adulthood, further investigation should be made to rule out the possibility of various pathologies, such as side effects of certain medications, drugs, obesity, tumours and hormonal problems. Gynecomastia surgery can be considered after determining the cause of the problem.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE
Men in good physical health who wish to define the outline of their pectorals.
The appropriate surgical method will depend on the degree of gynecomastia and excess skin, as determined by Dr. Zadeh during the initial consultation. Breasts with adipose tissue can be treated with liposuction. A chest with a fibrous tissue will require removal of the residual glandular tissue through incisions around the areola. In severe cases where there is a large amount of excess skin due to significant weight loss, Dr. Zadeh makes incisions on the skin to remove the excess skin.
