Gynaecomastia is a widespread male disorder, consisting of the development of breasts (gland and fat). It is often caused by an imbalance in sexual hormones. It is responsible for a number of significant psychological and social issues. More frequent in childhood, it can also occur in adults and the elderly, in this case often as a result of medication. The plastic surgeon intervenes to solve the issue with liposuction: when gynaecomastia is caused by excess glandular tissue, it may be necessary to combine liposuction with the surgical removal of the gland and excess skin.
The patient can resume daily activities easily and immediately, with increased confidence and serenity in personal relationships, thanks to the improvement in definition of the chest area, which will be no longer characterised by a typically female shape.
