Gynaecomastia

INFORMATION CREATES TRUST…

Gynaecomastia (gynae = woman / mastos = man) is an abnormal enlargement of the male mammary glands. The size can reach up
to a C-cup and often significant asymmetries are visible. The cause can be a disruption in the hormone balance.

Men with gynaecomastia and therefore enlarged breasts suffer very heavily psychologically. They often go to the gym in order to exercise away the excess tissue. Unfortunately, that doesn’t work. Often even GPs do not know which treatment possibilities exist for patients. They often send patients to a gynaecologist, which only worsens the psychological suffering for the men.

I will be happy to help you with my minimally invasive surgical methods:
Gynaecomastia is surgically treated very effectively with a male breast correction.

Frequency of gynaecomastia

The occurrence of enlarged breasts in men is more common than people think and especially occurs in young men. Something they all share is the enormous impairment to life quality.

Nearly two thirds of 14- to 16-year-old boys have an enlarged breast for a period of one to two years as a result of hormone fluctuations occurring in puberty, which normally spontaneously reduces in size.

Nearly a third of 25- to 35-year-old men have real gynaecomastia.

60 per cent of 60- to 70-year-old men have enlarged breasts as a result of an increase in body fat.
