Men’s cosmetic surgery

Gynecomastia is a disorder that causes excessive development of breast tissue in men.
It is frequent in the male population and can affect quality of life and lead to psychological issues.

Medical information

Tratamientos clínica estética Jordi Mir

Male mammary glandular tissue is scarce and has no function, unlike women’s. In some men, the gland becomes larger due to an imbalance in the levels of androgens and oestrogens (when there is a decrease in the former and an increase in the latter) causing bulging in the chest.

An increase in fatty tissue in the male chest is not symmetrical and can affect one or both breasts. It can appear in new-borns, in adolescence (it is a very common disorder at this stage of life and is usually temporary) and in older men it appears when the body reduces testosterone production. It also is also a direct side effect from taking anabolic steroids to increase muscle mass.

This operation is performed in the clinic’s operating theatre where the entire team of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers will ensure that you receive excellent care before, during and after the procedure.

This surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Surgery lasts for around two hours: A small incision is made in the areola and the armpit to suction out the breast tissue (we use Vaser technology), and in most cases this requires removal of the remaining mammary gland (subcutaneous mastectomy). At the end of the procedure, a binder is fitted. We do not perform drainage.

General anaesthesia

Surgery duration: 2h

This is an outpatient surgery (except if combined with Lipo Vaser on other areas). A binder is worn for about two months. During the first week, we recommend keeping your head slightly elevated in bed (three pillows). Normal activity without exertion can be resumed from the fourth to the seventh day, and more exertion from the second to third week, depending on each case.

To ensure your well-being, during the first week we will recommend you take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication. After seven days the stitch is removed from each breast area.

Following this, it is important to take good care of the scars using pressotherapy and keeping the area well hydrated (this will be explained and attached).


Recovery: 5– 7 days

Gynecomastia is a very safe procedure, provided it is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon.

Short-term complications are very rare and tend to be those typical of any surgery, such as bruising, infection, or changes in the sensitivity of the operated area.

As plastic surgeons, we pay great attention to all the factors that influence these potential complications and do everything in our power to prevent them. However, despite our best efforts, there is always the possibility that any of these could occur. Here is it important that patient and surgeon form a team and work together to obtain the best possible result under the circumstances.

With the correct analysis of each patient and their desires, state-of-the-art technology and expert surgery techniques, results are very predictable, and patient’s expectations can easily be met with excellent results for each individual’s aesthetic goals.

Liposuction of gynecomastia with or without subcutaneous mastectomy is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in men.
