What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia refers to a form in which a man’s breast becomes full like that of a woman’s due to excessive development of mammary gland tissue or excessive accumulation of fat in the breast.

There are many causes, including imbalance of puberty hormones, drug use and obesity, thyroid disease, and family history. Since the breast tissue must be excised by accurately analyzing the fat, mammary gland tissue, and internal cause, surgery by an experienced specialist is necessary.

Types of Gynecomastia

The goal of plastic surgery for gynecomastia is to remove excess breast tissue and create a more natural-looking chest contour. The most common procedure is excision, which involves removing the glandular tissue and excess skin from the breasts(True gynecomastia). In some cases, liposuction may also be used to remove excess fat(Pseudogynecomastia).

Male Breast Removal Surgery FAQs

In some cases, gynecomastia can recur after surgery if the underlying cause of the condition is not addressed.

For example, if the condition was caused by a medication, stopping the medication may be necessary to prevent recurrence.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can also help prevent recurrence.

Most patients can see some improvement in their chest appearance immediately after surgery, although swelling and bruising may obscure the results.

It can take several months for the final results to become fully visible as the swelling subsides and the chest area heals.

Diet and exercise can help with gynecomastia, which is caused by adipose tissue rather than mammary gland tissue in some cases.

However, because mammary gland tissue develops, exercise, diet, and injection treatment do not cause the mammary gland tissue to shrink. Surgery can thus be used to correct it.
