Seoul, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trueman Man Clinic Network announced that it performed more than 25,700 gynecomastia surgeries in September 2022 compared to 2010. Trueman Man Clinic Network is a renowned hospital for male-specific diseases, which operates nine clinics.
According to Korea Health Insurance Review and Rating Service and Health Big Data Statistics, Trueman Man Clinic Network performed more than 40% of gynecomastia surgeries in Korea over two years in 2020 and 2021.
The clinic’s reoperation rate is also as low as 0.25%. Out of 4,820 gynecomastia operations performed by the nine clinics in 2021, only twelve cases required reoperations to improve patient satisfaction.
“It is the accumulated know-how of our exceptional medical team and their many surgical experiences that have enabled this remarkable achievement,” said an official from the Trueman Man Clinic. “Inquiries are increasing as our high surgical success rate has become widely known beyond Korea.”
There are two different conditions causing enlarged breasts in men: pseudo gynecomastia, caused by obesity, and true gynecomastia, caused by excess glandular breast tissue in men.
True gynecomastia is caused by hormonal imbalance, use of certain medications, and obesity before puberty, which is known to be the most common underlying cause. In many cases, obesity is accompanied by enlargement of breast tissue.
For optimal treatment of gynecomastia, plastic surgeries to achieve the desired manly chest contour, as well as breast removal surgery with liposuction suitable for medical cure, are performed simultaneously.
Mastering the practice of liposuction determines the aesthetic achievement of gynecomastia surgery in obese patients. The part removed would be lumpy with the removal of breast tissue only; to prevent this, the breast fat surrounding the affected area should be removed appropriately. Side effects, such as bleeding, asymmetry and irregularities, can occur without skill. Skilled doctors elevate aesthetic perfection by performing male breast reconstruction surgery, maintaining the body line of the pecs.
