If gynecomastia doesn’t recover on its own it can severely dampen the spirit and life quality of the patient, along with causing serious pain and sensitivity. Treatment to gynecomastia can be medicinal or surgical.
There are two common surgery treatments for gynecomastia, liposuction or mastectomy. Promed Clinic experts decide which option to go with depending on the patient.
In liposuction, that is fat suction surgery, the surgeon only takes the breast fat, but leaves the mammary gland tissue. In mastectomy, the mammary gland tissue is completely removed by the surgeon. This surgery is usually performed using only small incisions.
Unfortunately exercise and diet is no substitute for gynecomastia surgery. With them, some of the amount of fat accumulated in the breast tissue can be burnt off, but the condition cannot be completely eliminated. The growth in the breast tissue may not be due to fat alone.
