Gynecomastia correction surgery

Confidence and self-esteem are essential elements for success. At Cronos Med, we offer complete and modern solutions for gynecomastia correction. Find out all the details in the following lines.

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia defines the increase in the volume of glandular tissue in boys and men. The reason is a hormonal imbalance in the body's concentrations of estrogen and testosterone. Gynecomastia may affect one or both breasts, and the change in appearance may be uneven. The increase in size of the breast tissue may also cause local discomfort.

How is the treatment performed?

When drug treatment fails, the solution is surgery. At Cronos Med, we evaluate each patient's case in order to recommend the most appropriate treatment protocol. Surgical treatment of gynecomastia can involve three stages, depending on the patient's needs:

  • Removal of excess breast tissue;
  • Suctioning fat tissue;
  • Excess skin removal.

The roles of each stage are:

Excision of excess breast tissue is recommended when gynecomastia is the result of glandular tissue proliferation. Surgical excision also allows the areola to be reduced and the nipple to be repositioned in a more natural area.


Suctioning adipose tissue is necessary when gynecomastia is the result of excess fat. In this situation, several small incisions are made through which liposuction will be performed.


Removing excess skin may be necessary when gynecomastia is very pronounced. During the initial consultation, the specialist will be able to tell you which surgical protocol he considers to be more appropriate in your case, what the stages of the operation will be and what each of them entails.


For the patient's comfort, the procedure is performed under intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia, depending on the particularities of each case. The Cronos Med team discusses with each patient individually so that they are fully informed about the alternatives available to them.

What are the benefits of gynecomastia surgery?

Cosmetic surgery to treat gynecomastia is performed in adulthood and is generally recommended in the following situations:

  • When drug treatment is no longer sufficient;
  • When tissue fibrosis sets in, it becomes painful;
  • When your physical appearance becomes disturbing and affects your self-confidence.
