Gynecomastia is a hypertrophyc man’s breast due to the excessive development of the mammary gland.
Abnormal growth of the men’s bust is a common mammary pathology that may also be due to a simple increase in fat (adipomastia). This size increase may be symmetrical (both breasts) or asymmetrical (only one breast).
Depending on the diagnosis made by the specialized surgeon, the most appropriate technique will be used in each case, whether it is adipomastia or gynecomastia. In case of adipomastia, liposuction is the most indicated technique whereas for gynecomastia the most frequent technique is the extraction of the mammary gland. It is essential to perform a good diagnosis in order to give the patient the most appropriate personalized treatment.
