SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trueman Man Clinic Network announced that it has performed more than 25,700 gynecomastia operations as of September 2022 from 2010. Trueman Man Clinic Network is a renowned hospital for male-specific diseases, running nine clinics.
According to the Korean Health Insurance Review & Assessment Service and statistics of Healthcare Big Data, Trueman Man Clinic Network performed over 40 percent of gynecomastia surgeries in Korea over two years in 2020 and 2021.
The clinic’s reoperation rate is also as low as 0.25 percent. 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 know-how accumulated by our outstanding medical team and their many surgical experiences that enabled this remarkable accomplishment,” said an official of Trueman Man Clinic. “Inquiries are on the rise as our high surgery success rate became 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 male breast tissue.
True gynecomastia is caused by an imbalance of hormones, the 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 enlarged breast tissues.
For the optimal treatment of gynecomastia, plastic surgeries to achieve the desired manly chest contour, as well as breast removal surgery with proper liposuction for a medical cure, are performed simultaneously.
The proficiency in performing liposuction determines the esthetic completion of gynecomastia surgery for obese patients. The removed part would be dented with the elimination of breast tissues only; to prevent that, breast fat surrounding the affected area should be taken out appropriately. Side effects, such as bleeding, asymmetry, and unevenness, could occur without proficiency. Skilled doctors raise esthetic perfection by performing male breast reconstruction surgery, retaining the body line of pectoralis.
