What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia means an increase in the size of the mammary gland in men and may be due to the growth of glandular tissue, fat tissue, or both.

The main goal of the surgical gynecomastia correction is to reduce the size of one or both breasts and achieve a more aesthetic appearance of the male chest. The main challenge of this procedure will be to obtain the best result with the least possible scar.
