WHAT CAUSES GYNECOMASTIA?
Gynecomastia can be attributed to several factors, with hormonal imbalance being one of the most common causes. When there is an increase in estrogen compared to testosterone levels in the male body, excessive growth of breast tissue can occur. This condition can affect men of all ages, from adolescence to adulthood.
The surgery to correct gynecomastia is known as male breast reduction surgery or subcutaneous mastectomy. In this procedure, the plastic surgeon makes an incision around the nipple or in the breast area to access the excess glandular and fatty tissue. Through this incision, the mammary glands and excess fatty tissue are removed to achieve a masculine and contoured chest.
In some cases, if gynecomastia is caused by excess fatty tissue without glandular enlargement, liposuction may be performed to remove the excess fat.
Male breast reduction surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation and usually takes around 1 to 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the case. Recovery after the surgery may vary, but generally, patients can resume their normal activities within a few weeks. It is important to follow the postoperative instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure a successful recovery.
It is worth noting that each case of gynecomastia is unique, so it is essential to consult with an experienced plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Juan Carlos Monroy in Bogotá, to receive an accurate diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan.

What causes gynecomastia in men?
Gynecomastia can be caused by various factors, with hormonal imbalance being one of the most common causes. An increase in estrogen compared to testosterone levels in the male body can lead to excessive growth of breast tissue. This condition can affect men of all ages, from adolescence to adulthood.
Does gynecomastia go away on its own?
In some cases, especially during adolescence, gynecomastia may go away on its own as hormone levels stabilize. However, in many cases, gynecomastia does not resolve spontaneously and may persist into adulthood. If gynecomastia does not go away on its own or causes physical or emotional discomfort, male breast reduction surgery (gynecomastia correction) may be considered as an option to treat this condition.
What does the male breast reduction surgery entail?
Male breast reduction surgery, also known as gynecomastia correction, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce and reshape breast tissue in men with significant gynecomastia. During the procedure, liposuction may be used to remove excess fat, and in some cases, surgical excision of glandular tissue is performed. The goal of the surgery is to achieve a flatter, firmer, and more masculine chest.

What are you waiting for?
Is the procedure safe?
Male breast reduction surgery is safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon in a suitable setting with necessary safety measures. A comprehensive preoperative evaluation is important to determine if the patient is a suitable candidate for the surgery and to identify any potential risk factors. Following the surgeon’s instructions and maintaining appropriate postoperative follow-up can minimize the risk of complications.
Are there visible scars after the surgery?
In general, the incisions made during male breast reduction surgery are small and strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. Experienced plastic surgeons make efforts to place incisions in discreet areas of the chest. Over time, scars tend to fade and become less noticeable.
How long is the recovery period after male breast reduction surgery?
The recovery period after male breast reduction surgery can vary from patient to patient. In general, patients can return to their normal daily activities within a few days, but intense exercise and activities that strain the chest area should be avoided for about 4-6 weeks. It is essential to follow the surgeon’s instructions regarding postoperative care and the use of compression garments.
What results can I expect after the surgery?
The results of male breast reduction surgery are generally permanent. After recovery, the patient may experience a flatter, firmer, and more masculine chest. The surgery not only improves the physical appearance of the chest but also enhances the patient’s confidence and self-esteem.
Are there any risks or complications associated with male breast reduction surgery?
As with any surgery, there are potential risks associated with male breast reduction surgery. These risks may include infection, bleeding, abnormal scarring, changes in chest sensitivity, among others. It is important for patients to follow all pre and postoperative instructions provided by the surgeon to minimize risks and achieve successful recovery.
Who is male breast reduction intended for?
Male breast reduction is intended for men who experience excessive enlargement of their breast glands, either due to hormonal changes during adolescence, medication use, medical conditions, or any other underlying cause.
