Is liposuction an economical solution for gynaecomastia?
Q: What is the cost of gynaecomastia treatment through liposuction and what is the recovery time? Does the surgery leave a scar on the chest, which can be seen by my girlfriend? I am depressed because of this problem. Please suggest a cheap clinic. I am 20 years old.
A:Gynaecomastia is treated by excision, not by liposuction. Small scar, 4-5 cm, will initially be visible but after a few years will usually be very faint, though your girlfriend is more likely to be able to see it than other people. You will usually need one night in hospital. Don't go to the cheapest and smallest centre; look up a senior surgeon in an established centre. Plastic surgeons will also do the job, but will probably be much more expensive. A general surgeon is usually okay.
