This is an aesthetic procedure that allows the reduction of the size of a man’s breasts. There are several different techniques available, depending on the nature of the gynecomastia and of the element which is distended or in excess (fat, mammary gland, skin). The choice of the most adequate technique depends on the clinical evaluation for each patient and it is decided during the pre-op consultation. It can be liposuction, mastectomy or a mixed technique combined.
An ambulatory surgery is chosen and the patient can go home after a few hours. The sutures are intradermal, with reabsorbable thread. In this way, it is not necessary to remove stiches during the post-op period.
