How gynecomastia (breast formation in men) is treated, is of course determined by the present form of gynecomastia (breast formation in men).
1. If there is an excess (milk) cleaver disc without too much ‘greasy’ breast tissue, the removal of the clerical disc through an incision along the lower part of the areola is often sufficient.
2. In gynaecomastia (breast formation in men) with a surplus of ‘fatty’ breast tissue without an eye-catching (milking) gland, then a treatment by means of liposuction is the appropriate form of treatment of the gynecomastia (breast formation in men).
3. When there is the most common form of gynaecomastia (breast formation in men), with breast tissue with both an excess (milk) gland and a surplus of ‘fatty’ breast tissue, a combined treatment will be chosen. Both liposuction is then applied and the clerical disc will be removed.
Removal of the klierschijf as a treatment method against gynaecomastia
The removal of the klierschijf (Clutch disc excision) almost always by making a relatively small cut, in the form of a semicircle, along the bottom edge of the areola. As a result, the size of the scar remains relatively limited. However, if the sticky disc is very large, it may be necessary to make a small extension of the incision on both sides of the areola.
It can happen that, even if only the klierschijf has to be removed, liposuction is also recommended. This advice is issued to treat the surplus of skin. By performing the treatment gynaecomastia (breast formation in men) combined with a liposuction, it will be able to pull together a lot of skin better so that a tighter and therefore more beautiful result will be achieved.
The use of liposuction in the treatment of gynecomastia
In the treatment of gynecomastia (breast formation in men), liposuction alone is not performed that often. This is primarily because the presence of ‘greasy’ glandular tissue is rather rare. A second reason is that, even if there is mainly only ‘greasy’ gland tissue present, there is always a gypsy disc (-je) present. The removal of this sticky disc simply provides a better end result.
What form of anesthesia is used in the treatment of gynecomastia?
Practically all treatments of gynecomastia (breast formation in men) are performed under local anesthesia (tumelescent anesthesia).
