This is the most common type of gynecomastia seen in patients aged 20-40. The gynecomastia can be minor or more severe which can entail a degree of breast sagging. Excess glandular tissue is the most common cause of the breast enlargement for the majority of patients. The gynecomastia condition may be congenital, started in puberty, or be a result of drugs or other substances. The surgery always consists of removal of the glandular tissue and sometimes liposuction is also indicated. Recurrence is very low, less than 1% in our practice. Patients report that having the surgical correction of gynecomastia is a liberating experience and after they recover they are able to continue with normal life and activities without the self-consciousness they had with the enlarged male breasts.
