It is the enlargement of one or both mammary glands in man.
This disorder is usually associated with excess prolactin in blood that is also synthesized in men.
Phase I – The increase observed in the nipples is not very pronounced and also no excess skin is observed.
Phase II – A moderate hypertrophy of the mammary glands is already observed.
Phase III – It presents fat and excessive glandular tissue, as well as flaccidity and excess of skin in the place, in this phase a surgical intervention is required where an external incision will be made in the areola.
Once discarded these symptoms caused by a secondary disease, we can solve the gynecomastia with plastic surgery or if possible with a simple liposuction.
The surgery is performed by means of an incision in the areola following the natural curve, where the surgeon removes the mammary gland that is the one that causes the excess of volume.
In some cases extraction is not necessary and with a liposuction the excess fat is sucked out.
The intervention of Gynecomastia is contraindicated for smokers, with problems of alcoholism, as well as in people with cardiovascular, autoimmune, systemic problems or with coagulation problems.
