Gynecomastia / Male Breats Excess
Gynecomastia is the increase of size of the men breast. This change provokes problems to men, and on certain occasions it may even prevent living a complete free life. The excess growth of the breast may be gland, fat or both. Its constitution is determined after a mammography in order to know the suitable technique to be used.
The intervention is normally done with general anesthesia. In cases of a small volume it can be applied local anesthesia and sedation.
The surgical treatment consists in extracting the mammal content by small incisions, normally located at the armpits. If the content is fat, liposuction is enough; if it is glandular then the gland is extracted.
Hospitalization normally lasts 24 hours.
Afterwards, the patient has to wear a chest band for a month and make drainage massage to accelerate recovery.
Four days after intervention, the patient may return to his daily normal life.
Final results will be noticed after 3 months, when skin is without inflammation and fit to the new breast volume.
