Gynecomastia or pseudogynecomastia (lipomastia)?

Pseudogynecomastia (also called lipomastia or false gynecomastia) is an increase in fatty tissue in the breast. Patients with pseudogynecomastia usually have an increased body weight (body mass index). When the breast is palpated or ultrasound examined, there is no increased breast gland tissue. In pseudogynecomastia, the contour of the breast is corrected by liposuction. Whether a tightening of the skin is necessary depends on the skin elasticity and the degree of pseudogynecomastia.
