Gynecomastia is a medical word from the Greek words for "woman-like breasts," occurs in as many as 40 % of men. This is a fairly common condition in teens as well, where the cause is not always known, but the incidence increases with certain drugs (digitalis, anabolic steroids, Tagamet, and spironolactone), use of marijuana or alcohol or may simply be due to obesity. Indicure now offers a solution to this problem which may shatter a man’s self confidence and self esteem.
The surgery is straightforward; it offers a quick remedy to the discomfort, physical and social, that the patient suffers.
The two basic surgical techniques used are- 1. Liposuction -If your gynecomastia is primarily caused by fatty tissue, liposuction is usually the procedure of choice. Liposuction surgery is a procedure used to actually remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. A straw-like cannula is inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the skin. Using a vacuum system attached to the cannula, excess fat cells are sucked out. The result is a resculpting of bulging breasts into more attractive contours. 2. Traditional Surgical Excision- If your gynecomastia is the result of a glandular disorder, liposuction alone is not likely to be adequate. Traditional surgical excision may be a better option.
The excision may be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction. Typically, the incision is placed on the edge of the areola (colored area of the nipple) or in the underarm area. Your surgeon will work through these incisions to cut away the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from the breast. If your reduction requires the removal of significant amounts of tissue, larger incisions may be required.
If your gynecomastia is extreme, and large amounts of fat and/or glandular tissue have to be removed, excess skin may also have to be excised.
