Gynecomastia is defined as the development of male breast tissue. It is a rarely discussed problem but is surprisingly common, affecting almost half of the male population. The cause of gynecomastia is not always known, however this condition can have a devastating impact on self-confidence and affect almost every aspect of a person’s life. With regards to adolescents, the pubertal changes are thought to cause the development of gynecomastia and in most cases this resolves itself within two years without any treatment. In later stages of life this unfortunately does not hold up, to which end surgery is a fitting solution to resolve this condition. In the following menu you can find more information on gynecomastia. In case you would like our professional advice or if you would like to make an appointment, please contact us.
During a first non-committal consultation, Dr. Fantozzi will discuss all the different aspects of the gynecomastia procedure. He will discuss your aesthetic wishes and subsequently advise you which method of treatment will let you meet those wishes in the best way possible. Furthermore you will be informed on the results you may expect, possible downtime and temporary limitations after the surgery. You can rest assured that you will always receive honest and professional advice during this consultation.
The surgery involves the removal of excess skin, fat and tissue from the breast. Dr. Fantozzi will make every effort to place the incision in an inconspicuous location in order to have as little visible scarring as possible, such as in the nipple area. The result is an enhanced body image and improved self-confidence. Regardless of the extent of your gynecomastia surgery, you can rest assured that Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-skilled team will make no concessions when it comes to the quality and safety of the procedure. Gynecomastia involves light anesthesia and takes about one hour.
During the first consultation Dr. Fantozzi will inform you on the possible down-time, temporary limitations and aftercare trajectory after the surgery. To secure the quality and results of the treatment, we will schedule an appointment for a check-up following the procedure. In order to further enhance the results, Clinic Fantozzi will also design a personal after-treatment course for each unique individual if desired.
