Gynecomastia surgery

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is described as a benign enlargement or swelling of the male breasts. Unlike pseudogynecomastia or lipomastia, where the enlargement of the breasts comes from fat deposits, gynecomastia is caused by the growth of glandular breast tissue. Gynecomastia is usually diagnosed during a simple physical examination, and it is important to  differentiate this condition from male breast cancer. In some cases, gynecomastia may go away on its own, while in other cases this condition requires medication or surgery.

Symptoms and causes

As mentioned above, the increase of male breasts is the main symptom of gynecomastia. This condition can be present in one or both breasts, although gynecomastia affecting both breasts is more common. The distribution of the enlarged tissues may differ slightly between the breasts. Unlike fat deposits, glandular tissue feels rubbery or firm. In addition to enlargement, the breasts may become sensitive and tender, however, pain is usually absent.

Risk factors and prevention

Adolescence, older age, some health conditions (such as liver or kidney diseases) and the use of anabolic steroids are just a few factors known to increase the risk of gynecomastia. However, there are steps one can take to reduce the risk:

Who is a proper candidate for surgical treatment?

Surgery is a suitable choice for men whose condition cannot be treated with medications or any form of alternative treatment methods. Additionally, one must be in good overall health – some types of serious illnesses or medical conditions are a contraindication for surgical treatment. Other requirements include stabilized breast development, being at a healthy weight and having realistic expectations.

Before the procedure you will have a consultation with your surgeon, during which you will be able address any questions about the procedure, its risks and outcomes.

Your surgeon will evaluate your overall health and ask you about your medical history, including any type of medication that you take or have taken in the past (including over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements).

If you smoke, you will be asked to stop smoking well before the procedure.

Moreover, certain anti-inflammatory drugs (such as aspirin) are to be avoided before the surgery, as they increase the risk of bleeding.

Combine with gynecological procedure: save time and money by having gynecological procedure at the same time as your plastic surgery. Read more

Male breast reduction techniques

Male breast reduction surgery is extremely effective in treating gynecomastia. There are a few techniques available:

This technique is beneficial in cases when gynecomastia is caused by excess of fatty tissue. A thin tube called a cannula is inserted into the breasts via small incisions. The fatty tissue is then loosened and extracted from the breast. However, there are few cases when gynecomastia can be treated with liposuction only.

This method is used in cases that require the removal of glandular tissue and excess skin. It is also possible to relocate the nipple or diminish the size of the areola to achieve a natural male contour of the breast – this is often done in cases of severe gynecomastia.

This technique allows a removal of both glandular and fatty tissues with less postoperative complications and more satisfying results.

Recovery after the surgery

Can gynecomastia be combined with other surgical techniques?

It is possible to combine male breast reduction with other plastic surgery procedures. A tummy tuck is frequently chosen as an additional option in order to make the torso and waist slimmer, therefore,  achieving a more satisfying contour of the body. In some cases, male breast reduction is performed after a considerable weight loss. An arm lift and body lift can be combined with breast reduction, as it is commonly necessary to remove excess skin and fat tissue.

The recurrence of gynecomastia and how to avoid it

The results of male breast reduction surgery are meant to last a lifetime. Nonetheless, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one of the key ways to avoid any possible recurrences. Gynecomastia can reoccur due to substantial weight gain, the use of steroids or certain medications. Moreover, specific medical conditions can lead to the recurrence of gynecomastia. Besides focusing on maintaining healthy habits, do not forget to consult your doctor to learn precise ways to prevent gynecomastia from recurring.
