Gynecomastia abroad

Best plastic surgeons in Europe

 About us - plastic surgery and dental treatment in Poland

Breasts are the basic, visible at first glance, attribute of femininity. The problem arises when this attribute begins to affect men... we can say then that gynecomastia occured, which in other words means the excessive growth of the gland or breast tissue causing enlargement of male chest.

Generally gynecomastia is not a really serious problem, however it can be tough to cope with. Men and boys have sometimes pain in their breasts and what is more important they feel embarassed, as they are visible even through clothes.

What causes gynecomastia:

hormonal imbalance two main hormones are responsible for controlling sexual growth and development both in men and women. Testosteron is the one that 'has an eye on' male sex charasteristics as well as the development of muscle mass and body hair, whereas estrogen 'look after' female growth (such as growht of breasts). The problem arises when estrogen is produced in more quantities than in should in boy's (man's) body and the level of testosterone drops. Such imbalance between those 2 hormones can cause the growth of male breast GYNECOMASTIA.

Taking some medications can casue gynecomastia, such as for heart disease, cancer, ulcers, deprsessions or illegeal steroids, AIDS medications, as well as street medicationsincluding alcohol, marijuana, heroin etc

health conditions, such as thyroid problems, some cancers (lungs cancer, pitutary gland or adrenal glands), kindey failure, liver disease

obesity, which can result in increase of estrogen

large weight loss

What to do then? Is there any solution to for this condition? Of course there is!!!

During the consultation the patient is examined if there are no hard lumps, oozing fluids or any skin problems that could be signs of cancer. The doctor also needs to know patient's medical history as well as any medictions reguralry taken.
Depending on the age, the condition can be treated in different ways. If it's during puberty, it could go away on its own. If the casue is hormonal medications might help for the imbalance but very often the only way to get rid of the male breast breast might be the surgery during which extra fat is taken (liposuction) or/and breast gland tissue are removed (mastectomy) - called gynecomastia surgery.


More and more men all over the world are tempted and consider to get this surgery done. One of the reasons why they choose not to do it, is the price being too expensive! Other reaons, such as fear from the surgery and potential complications are easier barriers to conquer. To help patients with the costs, more and more overseas surgeons invite them now for the surgery in their clinics. With the reduced, affordable costs and very often better quality, men now can undergo gynecomastia procedure for much less than in their home country.
