Gynecomastia in Hannover

Women usually desire a full breast and often consider a Breast Augmentation. Men desire a well-trained chest muscle and a really visible breast is recognized as a blemish. The man’s chest can have a feminine appearance that can restrict the man’s everyday life. A gynecomastia is not rare, but the problem is often solved during the puberty. The reason for the unnatural growth of the man’s chest is the growth of the mammary gland, which is usually only active in girls and young women.

However, a distinctive chest does not always have to be a gynecomastia. It can also be a pseudo-gynecomastia or lipomastie. These mean the breast of the man due to overweight and too much fat tissue. Gynecomastia can also occur when the breasts have different sizes.

The problem is that the growth of the breast is often just a symptom of another disease. Therefore, many reasons are possible, such as a metabolic disease or hormonal disorders which can lead to a higher production of the feminine sex hormone estrogen or a lack of male testosterone. Other reasons can be the intake of medicine or even drugs or too much alcohol. The pathological gynecomastia is based on a chronic disease, such as a renal failure, liver cirrhosis or hyperthyroidism. Breast Cancer is usually not the reason for this phenomenon.

If someone suffers from gynecomastia, his everyday life might be restricted. For example, it can be difficult to find proper clothes and even sport activities cannot easily be performed. Moreover, it is not easy to find a partner and the sexual life is also affected. If medical treatment does not lead to an improvement, a correction of the breast is often the only possibility to become active.

Information about the surgery

Gynecomastia can be treated by removing the mammary gland through a surgery. This surgery is often combined with a Liposuction. If excessive tissue of drooping skin is available, a Breastlifting is necessary. The surgery implies a cut at the nipple of 2-3 cm length for the removale of the gland tissue. After that, the fat tissue will be removed with the help of the Liposuction. The surgeon forms the breast to a natural and flat shape.

The surgery will be carried out under general or local anaesthesia and lasts 1-2 hours. The patient has to rest for several days due to the ambulatory treatment.

Possible Complications and Aftercare

The removal of the mammary gland is more complex and contains a higher risk than the normal Liposuction. Moreover, the duration of this treatment is longer. Pain and swellings also occur. A compression vest is obligatory for 4-6 weeks and sports and other exhausting activities should be avoided. The absorbable thread will be shortened after two weeks and a follow-up appointment is obligatory after six weeks.

Afterwards, the scars will not be visible and inflammations are rare. In some cases, the sensibility is restricted and a relapse with a new breast augmentation cannot be excluded completely.
