WHAT TO EXPECT
Gynaecomastia is a clinical condition which represents abnormally enlarged breast tissues in men. It is caused by excess glandular and fatty tissues within the breast. It maybe associated with some drug use or hormonal imbalance but the min the majority of cases there is no known cause. It is common in teenage boys but usually resolves by early adulthood.
It can lead to embarrassment and this may result in low self-esteem and depression in affected men.
For individuals who have tried a regime of exercise and diet and have had to success then a surgical operation maybe considered.
In some cases, when the enlargement is mainly due to excess fatty tissues, liposuction is useful. In other cases where the the enlargement is mainly due to breast tissue then surgery maybe useful to remove the excess disc of tissue trough an incision around the areolar (the coloured disc of skin around the nipple). More commonly a combination of surgery and liposuction are indicated.
In extreme cases, there is also an excess of skin which need to be addressed with surgery. This procedure will leave a scar on the breast/chest.

You won’t need to take time off work, but you’ll have some tenderness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort during the healing process. The swelling should start to resolve after the first week, though it could take up to six weeks to fully heal.
During this time, your surgeon may recommend wearing a specialized surgical bra to protect your nipples. You’ll also need to avoid strenuous activity.
You’ll likely have stitches along the incisions. These will either be taken out by your doctor around one week post-op in a follow-up visit or dissolve on their own, depending on the type of sutures used.
