Gynecomastia or male breast reduction in Delhi is the surgery that aims to reduce excess fat and mammary glands in men.
This surgery is indicated for patients suffering from conditions that lead to enlargement of the male breasts beyond the normal standard. So-called Breast Hypertrophy can affect, to varying degrees, up to 50% of men. The problem may have different characteristics in isolation or together, such as excess fat and excess mammary glands. In most cases, breast growth occurs due to hormonal imbalances, in which there is a reduction in the male hormone (testosterone) and an increase in the female hormone (estrogen).
The male breast reduction in Delhi is mainly aimed at removing excess fat and glands from male breasts. It is rarely necessary to remove excess skin as well. The procedure can be performed with local anesthesia associated with sedation and has an average duration of 2 hours. When gynecomastia has a predominant component of excess glands, an incision should be made around the areola in order to remove the mammary gland. When the gynecomastia component is predominantly fatty, liposuction in the region is the most used technique.
Sutures can be removed approximately 10 days after surgery and the patient should wear an elastic band during the postoperative period. The end result is the masculine aspect of the pectoral region, which becomes flatter and firmer.
