Gynecomastia surgery in Malaga

Gynecomastia is the term used to define the growth of breast tissue in males, which can occur in one or both breasts. It often leads to significant discomfort due to the feminine appearance of the breasts. It is caused by the proliferation of mammary gland tissue in males. There can be various causes, although the triggering factor is often not identified.

The surgical technique used varies greatly depending on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed. Pseudogynecomastia refers to male breast growth primarily due to fat rather than mammary gland tissue, and in these cases, liposuction is the treatment. Dr. Javier Collado will guide you on which technique best suits your case.

Gynecomastia surgery in Malaga with the best results

Gynecomastia treatment is of interest to men with increased breast volume. The best results are usually achieved when the patient’s skin is elastic and firm. If not, it may be necessary to remove the mammary gland and part of the skin to address this.

In many cases, the procedure may need to be complemented with liposuction of the breast to reduce the amount of fatty tissue around the gland. Once excess subcutaneous tissue has been removed, the need to remove excess skin to tighten the breast will be evaluated.
