  • History of the Procedure. Galen introduced the
    term gynecomastia in the second century AD. He
    defined gynecomastia as an unnatural increase in
    the breast fat of males. Although Galen was aware
    that glandular enlargement of the male breast
    occurred as a separate entity, he did not
    consider this gynecomastia
  • Gynecomastia is derived from the Greek terms
    gynec (feminine) and mastos (breast). The literal
    translation, male breasts, relates to any
    condition that results in excessive development
    of breast tissue in males. Males may rarely
    develop breast cancer, but this is often
    associated with testicular atrophy.

How Long Does It Take
  • A breast reduction procedure usually takes up to
    2-3 hours depending on the patient.

Recovery After Surgery
  • Recovery from a male breast reduction surgery can
    take several weeks. Tissues in the breasts may be
    swollen and some bruising may also be visible.
    During the recovery period the patient is
    required to wear a firm Lycra garment to help
    reduce the swelling - this garment is worn for a
    period of 3 weeks.
  • Male breast reduction is a surgery many men can
    benefit from and there has never been a better
    time or place to have this procedure performed.
    Hungary not only offers cosmetic surgery for men
    of world-class standard, but the cost of such
    surgery is a fraction of what you would pay in
    other European countries.

Male Breast Reduction Cost
  • The cost of male breast reduction surgery
    includes a personal consultation with your
    plastic surgeon, general anesthesia, breast
    reduction procedure, an overnight stay at the
    clinic, medications, and post-surgical controls.
  • Our clinic employs the skills of some of
    Hungary's leading plastic surgeons who are ready
    to help you regain the confidence you need for a
    healthy self-image and success in life.

Advantages of Gynecomastia
  • The benefits of male breast reduction surgery are
    both physical and psychological. From the
    physical perspective, you are able to get rid of
    those unattractive, sagging breasts.
  • This allows the more defined pectoral's major
    muscles hidden below to show through like they
  • From a psychological perspective, you no longer
    have to suffer with the embarrassment of having
    breasts. You can take your shirt off in public
    and not have to be self conscious.

Disadvantages of Gynecomastia
  • The disadvantages of this surgery are related to
    the patients own reaction to medicine, and the
    medical procedures.  
  • The doctor should thoroughly brief the patient on
    the type of medicines used during the
    surgery.  This way, there is no chance of
    allergic reactions to the various anesthesia
    medicines used.
  • Other disadvantages include not liking the result
    of the surgery once it is performed.  There are
    risks in terms of body shape a man may end up
    with an irregular breast contour.
