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.
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.
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.
