Pain or enlargement of the breasts in male adolescents may be transient due to hormonal changes. When the discomfort persists and the increase in breast tissue and fat persists, they require treatment. Depending on the characteristics of the breasts, it is treated with weight control, resection of the glands or reduction of fat in the chest.
Surgery generally includes resection of both mammary glands, if bilateral, and liposuction of the anterior chest. To have a better result, it is appropriate to have a good weight / height ratio, not to be overweight.
Postoperative complications are pain, asymmetries, infection, internal bleeding, nipple sinking, and noticeable scarring.
