GYNAECOMASTIA CORRECTION / MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Gynaecomastia or the appearance of male breasts (sometimes referred to as “man boobs”) is often disturbing and result in social embarrassment for the patient. They may result due to physiological reasons, such as soon after puberty or in middle-aged gentlemen. However, pathological conditions causing gynaecomastia will have to be screened, which may necessitate blood tests or an ultrasound in certain situations.
Correction involves the removal of breast glandular tissue and fat through a small keyhole incision around the areolar. Breast glandular tissue is always sent for histological analysis. The use of a compression vest for 3-4 weeks is mandatory to achieve an optimal result.
Gynaecomastia correction could be a medical condition and may be eligible for medisave insurance coverage.
