Treatment of gynecomastia may seem easy, but it is not such an easy procedure. Gynecomastia treatment in our clinic is individualised and varies according to the cause, duration, and severity, and whether it causes pain or discomfort. The surgical procedure for gynecomastia treatment includes the following steps and techniques:
Anaesthesia:-The patient may be given some medications before the main surgery to alleviate anxiety and for comfort during the surgical process. UK Gynecomastia provides its patients with the most suitable type of anaesthetic meaning option for local anaesthesia or sedation.
Very rarely a patient may require general anaesthesia.
Liposuction Technique:-Liposuction surgery technique is one of treatment for gynecomastia patients which includes removal of excess fat in the chest area surrounding the breast tissue. This requires insertion of a cannula, a thin hollow tube, through small incisions. The cannula moves back and forth in a controlled motion to disrupt the fat which is removed by the vacuum suction out of the body. Many of the liposuction techniques are provided depending upon the patient and type of treatment required.
Excision Technique:-Excision techniques are recommended where glandular breast tissue only or excess skin must be removed to correct gynecomastia. The skin excision technique may also be necessary if the areola need to be reduced or the nipple to be repositioned to a more natural male contour position . Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preference. This will be explained during your consultation.
Combination of liposuction & excision techniques:-Sometimes gynecomastia is treated by both the techniques: liposuction and excision. The procedure using this type of technique involves the use of both methods. There are many variables available in this type of technique, depending on the condition of the patient and surgical preference.
