Gynecomastia surgery Tunisia

Gynecomastia is the abnormal development of male mammary gland. It can affect one or both breasts. Although the cause in most cases is unknown, certain drugs or drugs and some hormonal disorders can trigger it.

During pubertal development, hormonal imbalance can cause a transient increase in adolescent breast tissue. However, this situation usually returns spontaneously.

In adulthood, as one ages, the testosterone level decreases which causes breast tissue to develop. Gynecomastia is also related to certain kidney, thyroid or pituitary diseases. The abuse of certain substances such as alcohol, anabolic steroids or corticosteroids stimulate male breast development.

The man who develops gynecomastia can suffer from a serious alteration of his self-esteem. He may tend to avoid certain social situations that involve uncovering his torso (swimming pools, beaches, gyms, etc.). Moreover, his intimate or couple relationships may be affected due to the insecurity generated by their feminine-looking breasts...

So gynecomastia surgery is the best solution to treat male breast hypertrophy.

How do I know if I have gynecomastia ?

Male breast development occurs at the expense of glandular tissue or chest fat. Accurate diagnosis of gynecomastia is essential for proper treatment.

At first, a correct clinical history is essential to find the possible causes. The physical examination will determine whether it is a glandular development or a localized accumulation of fatty tissue.

The diagnosis of gynecomastia involves an imaging test to determine whether the mammary gland has hypertrophied. Both a breast ultrasound and mammography are valid tests to determine if there is a development of a fibroglandular breast pattern. It will also be useful to rule out malignant pathology in the male breast.

If the development is at the expense of the gland, a complete endocrinological study should be performed to rule out organic problems. But in most cases the origin of the glandular hypertrophy is unknown or ideopathic.

When it is corroborated that the increase in the male breast has been produced by the accumulation of fatty tissue, it will be called pseudogynecomastia.

If you have noticed how your chest has developed and wish to return to having a flat and defined chest, gynecomastia surgery is an excellent option to achieve your goals.

How is it performed ?

This intervention is realized under general anaesthesia.

Gynecomastia is treated with a surgical procedure of the same name. Normally a small incision is made on each side of the chest near the armpit which is usually less than 3 millimeters through which a liposuction cannula is introduced. With this cannula the fat and most of the glandular content is removed, leaving only a small amount to cover the tissue and provide a natural result, avoiding adhesions and irregularities in the skin.

Sometimes it is necessary to complement this technique with a small incision in the lower half of the areola to remove the mammary gland that could not be removed by liposuction.

In cases of patients who have a large volume, well-defined breast sulcus or high skin flaccidity, the surgeon may also have to use other techniques that may involve peri-areolar or inverted T-shaped scars (peri-areolar, vertical and horizontal).

When the diameter of the areola is large, the surgeon can reduce it in the same intervention, as well as make the size of the nipple smaller.
