Correction of gynecomastia (male breast hypertrophy)

Gynecomastia is caused by an excessive development in the male breast tissue and occurs mainly in phases of hormonal change (childhood, adolescence and old age), being idiopathic (not associated with any underlying pathology) in most cases. In other situations it may be caused by drugs, or be related to thyroid gland pathology, or renal, suprarrenal and testicular disease. It can cause psychological morbidity in young adults and teens, and therefore its correction is indicated and can be performed through liposuction, subcutaneous mastectomy, or a combination of the two techniques.
