What Is Gynecomastia?

All men and women have breast tissues which are not noticeable in men, but in the case of gynecomastia, the breast glands often enlarge among men and boys. This usually begins during the adolescent stage. Gynecomastia is distinguishable from the accumulation of fat tissues in the breast which is known as pseudogynecomastia.

What Are The Causes?

Most common cause of Gynecomastia is idiopathic (unknown). Gynecomastia can also be due to the hormonal imbalance.  The levels of estrogen (female hormone) would be high in men when compared to the level of androgen (male hormone).

The other causes are the side effects that are related to the intake of certain medications and drugs like corticosteroids, anabolic steroids, antibiotics, opioids, estrogen, chemotherapy, heartburn drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

Gynecomastia Surgery

The surgery is used to remove the enlarged breast tissue in men. Mostly gynecomastia surgery involves the method of liposuction,  mastectomy and other procedures to take away excess fat deposition to provide a flat and masculine look to the chest.

The surgeries allow the surgeons to use minimally invasive techniques so that there are a lesser amount of cuts and scars in the breast region.

In gynecomastia treatment using liposuction initially, a local anesthesia is used to numb the chest area so that the patient feels less pain. The small incisions are made on both sides of the chest depending on the technique used by the surgeon. Through the incisions, the cosmetic surgeons would remove the excess fat and glandular tissue.

Tissue excision is another method involved in gynecomastia when the problem is severe. If the breasts are saggy and stretched along chest skin, this treatment allows surgeons to remove the higher amount of fat, skin and glandular tissue when compared to liposuction. In this surgery, incisions are made around the edges of areola so that the scars are minimal post-surgery.

The other surgeries for breast reduction include liposuction-assisted mastectomy, subcutaneous mastectomy, laser-lipolysis, and laser-assisted liposuction

Since the surgery is direct you will get instant results. The size of the breast will apparently be reduced but you’ll have your chest bandaged for few days to prevent swelling and other complications.
