Gynecomastia Tunisia : Men breat reduction

gynecomastia Tunisia or male breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess fat and glandular tissue from the breasts. The goal of surgical treatment for gynecomastia is to make the man's chest proportional to the rest of the torso, creating a flatter, firmer chest area with improved contours and minimal or virtually invisible scarring. The surgery is usually performed with a combination of liposuction, to remove excess fat, and excision to remove excess breast tissue.

Gynecomastia Tunisia, what is it?

Excess glandular tissue in men in men, called 'gynecomastia', is a common condition, seen in about 40-60% of men, and can lead to significant social discomfort and loss of confidence.

Glandular breast tissue and fat can increase breast size in men and usually depends on the age of the patient as well as the underlying cause. The most common cause of gynecomastia is residual breast tissue that does not go away with puberty.

In the vast majority of cases, there is no identifiable cause and non-surgical treatments have no role in the treatment.

If you have any concerns about any changes in the shape, size or color of your breasts, we recommend that you seek immediate medical attention.

The Surgery

There are several different techniques for this procedure, depending on the amount of breast tissue and the shape. In most procedures, the incision line is where your areola and the skin on your chest meet. The incision is small and imperceptible when discolored. Some cases involve repositioning the nipple to a higher level. Liposuction can also be used to shape the breast.

Breast reduction operations in men are performed in the clinic, under general anesthesia, and last between two and three hours. It can be performed on an outpatient basis or as an overnight stay depending on the case.
