A feminine breast form may develop in the case of men as well. The reasons may be hormonal or hereditary. It may be experienced during puberty or in old age. In case of a one-sided effect a tumor can be the cause of the problem.
If the disorder is mainly caused by fat and less breast tissue, the correction can be done by liposuction.
In the case of a gynecomastia caused mainly by breast tissue proliferation, a size reduction operation is necessary. In this case the breast tissue is removed, and if necessary the bigger areola is corrected to give a more masculine look.
The operation can be done in ambulatory care, or as an out-patient. The patient is advised to wear tight compression garments for 2-3 weeks after the surgery.
Result can be achieved by liposuction only
