Gynecomastia can lead to considerable embarrassment and discomfort. If you’re suffering from gynecomastia, you may have tried exercise and dieting to no avail. If that’s the case, it might be time to consider gynecomastia surgery.
What is Gynecomastia Surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery is one of the most effective ways to correct overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men, i.e., gynecomastia. The procedure involves making strategic incisions on the chest, following which excess fat tissues and glandular breast tissues are removed. Since 50% of the breast is made of fat, some patients can achieve the desired results with liposuction. But most patients with gynecomastia need to have excess glandular tissues removed.
