What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a common defect in boys or men that results in abnormal swelling of the chest that makes it appear similar to the female’s breasts (man boobs). It is quite common in teenage boys and older men. Gynecomastia affects about 40% to 60% of Indian men. In India, most males prefer undergoing minimally invasive male breast reduction surgery, which is done by a combination of liposuction and gland excision techniques. The primary cause of gynecomastia in men is the hormonal imbalance between testosterone and estrogen. The male body produces small amounts of estrogen along with a high level of testosterone. When the balance of these hormones changes, the increased amount of estrogen results in enlarged male breasts. Signs of this condition can vary from a small amount of extra tissue around the nipples to more prominent breasts. Surgery is the only effective treatment process for gynecomastia.

Treatment

Physical examination for Gynecomastia in indore

Diagnosis:

The surgeon will first physically check for the grade of gynecomastia in the patient. A male is said to be suffering from gynecomastia when the tissue of the breasts grows more than 0.5 cm. The plastic surgeon determines the grade of the gynecomastia and suggests the treatment accordingly. Initial tests include blood tests, mammograms that use low-energy X-rays to examine male boobs. Additional diagnostic tests may include MRI, CT scan, testicular ultrasound, and tissue biopsies to confirm the presence of breast enlargement in males. 

Procedure:

There are two methods to treat gynecomastia based on the grade of condition - liposuction and gland excision surgery. 

Liposuction - It is a surgical procedure to remove stubborn fat via small incisions in the skin. It is a minimally invasive surgery that can only be performed in the hospital with proper medical equipment by experienced cosmetic surgeons. The surgeon chooses the area around the male’s chest for fat removal according to the grade of gynecomastia. The area of liposuction for patients with grade 1 or grade 2 is usually nipular area since the amount of fat is small, whereas the area for fat removal for grade 3 and grade 4 gynecomastia patients is usually armpits. Grade 3 and grade 4 patients are usually classified as obese, and so, the area around the armpits is ideal due to the high intensity of fat. The OT time of this procedure is usually one hour, depending on the condition of the patient. 

Gland excision surgery - In this procedure, the anesthesia doctor first administers local or general anesthesia to either numb the site of the incision or completely sedate the patient. Then, the surgeon extracts the underlying glandular tissue around the breasts through a minute incision in the nipples. The incision is later closed with the help of dissolvable sutures or stitches.

What do men need to know before gynecomastia surgery?

Gynaecomastia is a condition that can happen to any male, primarily during adolescence, due to hormonal surges that can lead to the growth of male breast tissue. These breast tissues often shrink after puberty in some cases, but if that does not happen, they can appear as male boobs. The prevalence of asymptomatic gynaecomastia is around - 

  • 60% to 90% in children, 
  • 50% to 60% in adolescents 
  • Up to 70% in men aged 50 to 69 years.

Some of the common causes of gynecomastia include puberty, use of anabolic steroids in bodybuilders, obesity, excessive consumption of marijuana, along other medications that can cause male breast enlargement.
