What Is Gynaecomastia Surgery?
Gynaecomastia is the abnormal but non-cancerous enlargement of one or both breasts in males. This is mostly due to the growth of breast tissue which is often caused as a result of hormonal imbalance, medical conditions and lifestyle factors. It has been found to cause significant psychological distress among sufferers and is a popular treatment at Maison Lutétia.
The increase in gland tissue is often caused because of the imbalance in testosterone and estrogen, commonly referred to as the male and female hormone. As many as 1 in 4 male adults have suffered from gynecomastia at some point in their lives and it has been known to contribute to low self-esteem and other psychological pressures.

Change of hormones during puberty or in later stages
Change of hormones during later adolescence
Absence of proper nutrition
Liver and kidney disease among others.
When should you consider Gynaecomastia surgery treatment?
Ideally, if a swelling in the breast occurs, the patient should wait for six months to a year for it to subside. In the meantime, the patient should run all the tests prescribed by the doctor to rule out any of the mentioned conditions. A highly qualified and experienced surgeon will guide the patient through all the steps. If the condition persists, the patient will then be required to undergo the procedure.
