Fast men who are 18 years of age or older may have a plastic surgery of gynecomastia. However, it is important that diseases have been excluded as the cause of the condition first. The surgery is particularly suitable for people who, to a greater or lesser degree, experience an unnatural-looking breast and want to change the appearance and size of the breast. The operation can be performed on a breast or both breasts as needed. Please note that in some cases the operation may be covered by the public health insurance. This is especially true when your gynecomastia has occurred as a result of illness. Ask your doctor about the possibility of this.
How does an operation of gynecomastia occur
An operation of gynecomastia is performed by a plastic surgeon. The operation is usually performed outpatiently (without hospitalization) and either under local anesthesia or full anesthesia according to needs and wishes. For a larger gynecomastia, it may be necessary to stay overnight. The anesthetic and method used depends on the extent of your gynecomastia and is always agreed with the plastic surgeon before the operation is performed. Here's the most common gynecomastia operations:
Small gynecomastia: The
breast development here consists mostly of fat. Small incisions are placed on the chest through which the instrument for liposuction is introduced. Liposuction is performed and the incisions are sewn. The scars in this method will be very small and discrete.
Here, what is to be removed consists mostly of glandular tissue. At the lower hemisphere of the nipple, incisions are made and the glandular tissue is surgically removed. Then sew the sections. The scars will not be particularly clear in this type of operation.
Here it is necessary both to remove fat, glandular tissue and skin. For this you can use different methods. The optimal method is the method called Round Block . Here, the incision is laid all the way around the nipple edge. This section first removes fat and gland tissue and then a width of the surrounding skin. The remaining skin is tightened to the edge of the nipple and the edges are sewn together. If you have a lot of slack skin on your chest, this method is not always suitable. In this case, you will choose the classic method. In this method, the incisions are placed around the nipple, down the mid-line below the nipple and in the fold under the chest. This method produces the clearest scars.
