"Make excess fat & tissue disappear."

Treatment of gynecomastia

Surgery on the ‚female breast‘ in men

The elimination of gynecomastia is like a breast reduction: excess fat and breast tissue is removed from the chest area. And this according to the patient's personal aesthetic ideas, taking into account the physical conditions. The situation will be analyzed during a consultation in order to determine the best treatment method. The hormone status will also be checked before the procedure. An ultrasound will also be performed to rule out other causes.
