Went for a Tummy Tuck and Chest lift to remove excess skin after achieving massive weight loss. I didn’t experience much pain at all and it all went really well. Great results, very pleased. Probably going back in a few months to get my back done as well. I definitely won’t be looking anywhere else and would highly recommend this clinic to anyone.

I was at first hesitant at going to clinic abroad, but the staff at the Nordesthetics clinic put me at ease right away. Their courteous and helpful service was phenomenal, and the facilities world class. Accommodations for the night after my abdominal liposuction were amply comfortable, and the follow up care and accessibility of representatives was on point. I highly recommend them to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

Gynecomastia surgery

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is described as a benign enlargement or swelling of the male breasts. Unlike pseudogynecomastia or lipomastia, where the enlargement of the breasts comes from fat deposits, gynecomastia is caused by the growth of glandular breast tissue. Gynecomastia is usually diagnosed during a simple physical examination, and it is important to  differentiate this condition from male breast cancer. In some cases, gynecomastia may go away on its own, while in other cases this condition requires medication or surgery.

Symptoms and causes

As mentioned above, the increase of male breasts is the main symptom of gynecomastia. This condition can be present in one or both breasts, although gynecomastia affecting both breasts is more common. The distribution of the enlarged tissues may differ slightly between the breasts. Unlike fat deposits, glandular tissue feels rubbery or firm. In addition to enlargement, the breasts may become sensitive and tender, however, pain is usually absent.

The most frequent cause of gynecomastia is hormone imbalance in the body. In other words, the concentration of oestrogen (female hormones) increases in relation to androgens (male hormones). Major causes include recovery from malnutrition, various disorders of the testes, testicular cancer, chronic renal failure and hyperthyroidism. Gynecomastia can also result from taking certain medications such as anti-hypertension drugs, some antibiotics, anti-ulcer drugs and many others.

Gynecomastia is not always a sign of hormone imbalance – it frequently occurs as a physiological phenomenon in male infants and adolescents, and resolves without medical intervention. Physiologic gynecomastia is caused by transient changes in the body and can last up to two years, rarely evolving into a persistent form.

Risk factors and prevention

Adolescence, older age, some health conditions (such as liver, kidney or thyroid diseases) and the use of anabolic steroids are just a few factors known to increase the risk of gynecomastia. However, there are steps one can take to reduce the risk:

  • Limit your alcohol intake or avoid it altogether;
  • Do not use illegal drugs (such as steroids);
  • Review your medications and their side effects. If you are worried about gynecomastia, you can consult your doctor about alternative medications.

Who is a proper candidate for surgical treatment?

Surgery is a suitable choice for men whose condition cannot be treated with medications or any form of alternative treatment methods. Additionally, one must be in good overall health – some types of serious illnesses or medical conditions are a contraindication for surgical treatment. Other requirements include stabilized breast development, being at a healthy weight and having realistic expectations.

Before the procedure you will have a consultation with your surgeon, during which you will be able address any questions about the procedure, its risks and outcomes.

Your surgeon will evaluate your overall health and ask you about your medical history, including any type of medication that you take or have taken in the past (including over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements).

If you smoke, you will be asked to stop smoking well before the procedure.

Moreover, certain anti-inflammatory drugs (such as aspirin) are to be avoided before the surgery, as they increase the risk of bleeding.

Male breast reduction techniques

Male breast reduction surgery is extremely effective in treating gynecomastia. There are a few techniques available:

This technique is beneficial in cases when gynecomastia is caused by excess of fatty tissue. A thin tube called a cannula is inserted into the breasts via small incisions. The fatty tissue is then loosened and extracted from the breast. However, there are few cases when gynecomastia can be treated with liposuction only.

This method is used in cases that require the removal of glandular tissue and excess skin. It is also possible to relocate the nipple or diminish the size of the areola to achieve a natural male contour of the breast – this is often done in cases of severe gynecomastia.

This technique allows a removal of both glandular and fatty tissues with less postoperative complications and more satisfying results.

Recovery after the surgery

An overnight stay at the clinic is required after the surgery.

Besides dressings and bandages that are applied onto the incisions, you may have to wear a support garment to aid the healing process and to reduce the swelling.

Bruising and swelling are expected and can last up to a couple of weeks after the procedure. Depending on the procedure, drainage tubes may be temporarily inserted under the skin to remove any additional fluids or blood from the incision sites.

Postoperative pain is generally mild. Nonetheless, each case is different, and if necessary, your surgeon may prescribe certain medications for pain management. Soreness is most prominent during the first few days after the surgery. Most patients are often ready to return to their usual routines and work in just a week or so as well.

It is important to mention that taking good care of the incisions is vital to the healing process. Therefore, be sure to carefully follow your surgeon’s instructions.

The results are apparent immediately after the procedure. However, it may take up to a year for the breasts to reach their final shape. You should expect a certain degree of scarring as well – it depends both on the technique used to treat gynecomastia and the subtleties of the body’s unique natural scarring process. Even though the scars are permanent, they often align with the natural contours of the body and usually fade over time.

Can gynecomastia be combined with other surgical techniques?

It is possible to combine male breast reduction with other plastic surgery procedures. A tummy tuck is frequently chosen as an additional option in order to make the torso and waist slimmer, therefore,  achieving a more satisfying contour of the body. In some cases, male breast reduction is performed after a considerable weight loss. An arm lift and body lift can be combined with breast reduction, as it is commonly necessary to remove excess skin and fat tissue.

The recurrence of gynecomastia and how to avoid it

The results of male breast reduction surgery are meant to last a lifetime. Nonetheless, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one of the key ways to avoid any possible recurrences. Gynecomastia can reoccur due to substantial weight gain, the use of steroids or certain medications. Moreover, specific medical conditions can lead to the recurrence of gynecomastia. Besides focusing on maintaining healthy habits, do not forget to consult your doctor to learn precise ways to prevent gynecomastia from recurring.
