The increase of the measure of the masculine mammary region is known as ginecomastia or lipomastia.
As well this pathology is mayorly benign because of a gathering of fat tissue in the region we have to discard and eventual pathologyc growing of mammary tissue.
Seems to be frequent in patients that in their puberty suffered overweight and then lost weight, leaving sequels in their chests.
In this cases is the gathering of fat than the mammary hypertrophy.
It could be treated with a liposuction with a very thin cannula and the patient returns to his daily labours.
Is the hypertrophy of the mammary gland that could be unilateral.
Which means that only one side develops and bilateral which means both glands. It`s frequent in obese patients such in slender patients.
The treatment consists in the resection of the gland by an periareolar incision and lastly it`s complete with an lipoaspiration if it`s required.
The intervention is well tolerate with local anesthesia plus sedation, it`s necessary to use a compressive bandage during several days.
It`s frequent the formation of bruises that disappear with the treatment of adequate pomades.
The patient returns to his normal activities nearly in a week.
