Gynecomastia

Overview

Gynecomastia is a health condition that causes the chest in males to swell up. It occurs during teenage, puberty or even older age and can affect one or both breasts. Men can have gynecomastia due to hormonal changes, medicinal side effects or an imbalance between oestrogen and testosterone.  

It can not only cause embarrassment and mental discomfort but also lead to fat gain. In most cases, it can be treated with lifestyle changes and regular exercise. However, the most effective treatment is surgery which also gives faster results. 

Causes:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Antibodies
  • Anxiety medications
  • Liver failure
  • Lifestyle changes

Symptoms:

  • Swelling in breasts
  • Pain or tenderness in breasts
  • Discharge from nipples
  • Increased areola

Diagnosis:
For the diagnosis,our doctor will ask about the patient’s medical history and symptoms. The doctor will also perform a physical examination to check for any underlying condition. They may also measure the areola's diameter and recommend additional tests, such as MRI, CT scan or blood tests.

Symptoms

Treatment

Gynecomastia

The most effective treatment for gynecomastia is liposuction surgery. During the process, the surgeon will make a tiny incision around the areola and insert a cannula. It will break the fat pockets and drain out the excess fat.

Once the fat is removed, the surgeon will extract the underlying glandular tissue and then closes the incision. It’s a minimally invasive surgery that involves minimal cutting, bleeding and has less recovery time.

How should I prepare for the surgery?

To prepare for surgery, take good care of your health and try to learn as much as you can about the procedure. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a successful procedure and heal faster with a smooth recovery. 

Do I need to take any medicine before my surgery?

Depending upon the procedure and the patient's health, our surgeons may recommend some patients to medications. However, these medications are prescribed after a thorough evaluation of their medical history and overall health. Therefore, you need to inform the doctor about your allergies and previous medical conditions in advance
