Gynecomastia is a non-cancerous enlargement of breast tissue in men typically occurring around the time of puberty. Occasionally, this condition resolves without treatment but can often persist despite weight loss, diet changes and exercise. After ruling out serious endocrinologic causes, surgical treatment options can help eliminate this excess glandular and fatty tissue.
Surgery involves a combination of liposuction and a small incision to remove the breast tissue. It is performed as an outpatient procedure in a private surgical facility and has a relatively quick recovery time.
If you suffer from gynecomastia and would like to discuss your options with Dr. Loizides, please book a consultation.
