In most cases, a physical examination of the breast tissues is enough to identify the condition. In addition to examining the breasts, the doctor may also check the genitals and abdomen to look for the signs of hormonal imbalance.
The doctor will ask about the symptoms, medical and drug history, and family history as well. Depending on the symptoms and texture of the breasts, the doctor may recommend further tests including biopsy to rule out the possibility of breast cancer. Other tests may include:
As there are few other conditions that can cause similar symptoms, these tests will help the doctor to identify the condition precisely and its causes.
At Pristyn Care, we perform gynecomastia surgery in Kochi using the combination of liposuction technique and gland excision. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia. Firstly, an incision of 2-3 mm is made around the nipple and the cannula is inserted into the fat tissues. Then the tissues are broken down and extracted through a suction device. After the removal of fat tissues, the rest of glandular (breast) tissues are removed safely through excision.
After removing all the breast tissues, the incision is closed and it becomes invisible as soon as it heals. You will be able to go back home on the same day and the recovery after male breast reduction surgery will take almost 3-4 weeks.

"Throughout my years of practice, I have seen that many people who have gynecomastia often try home remedies, exercise, and diet believing that the puffiness in the chest is due to fat deposits. However, they have less clarity about the condition itself. Gynecomastia occurs as a result of hormonal imbalance that can be induced by a variety of factors. It not only has physical side effects but also has a psychological impact on males. To address these concerns, surgery is the best option. The surgical treatments, including liposuction and gland excision (combinedly called male breast reduction surgery), are effective in resolving the condition."

Some events of pseudogynecomastia may go away on its own but in other cases, it may require surgical intervention to directly remove the excess glandular tissue.

There would be minimal scarring after gynecomastia surgery which is likely to fade within a time frame of 3-6 months. The incision/ excision is usually done near the areola which is why the incisions are not always clearly visible.
There are very rare chances of gynecomastia recurrence after surgery as the glandular tissues are completely removed. Hence, its rare for the breast tissues to grow again. However, there is still a possibility that chest fat may accumulate that will give you the appearance of man boobs.

The treatment method for gynecomastia is chosen based on its grade or severity. The enlargement of breasts is divided into four grades:
Men often make the condition worse by trying to hide the enlarged breasts by slouching that further aggravates the back pain. If left untreated for a long time, the condition will get worse and the patient may suffer from the spinal deformity.
If you see a doctor while male breasts are still developing, the condition can be controlled and managed by addressing the primary cause of hormonal imbalance. The doctor may further recommend that you take alternative medications or suggest hormone replacement therapy to stop the tissue growth.
Most men get confused between fat deposits in the chest (pseudogynecomastia) area and the condition of gynecomastia. The signs and symptoms of both the conditions are very similar which is why most men confuse one with the other. However, there are also factors that differentiate gynecomastia from chest fat deposits.
Gynecomastia is the condition in which there is an excessive glandular tissue growth in the pectoral region of a man. Pseudogynecomastia is a condition of fat deposits in the pectoral region.
In case of gynecomastia, a hard lump can be felt under the nipple or areola. But in case of chest fat or pseudogynecomastia, no firmness or hard mass is felt under the nipple or areola. Its mass growth feels the same throughout the chest region.
In gynecomastia, the saggy appearance of the breast is minimal. While in case of pseudogynecomastia, the breast may appear to be more saggy.
The condition of fat deposits in the chest can be managed with regular exercises for a healthy diet. But gynecomastia does not disappear with either exercise or change in diet. If a man is diagnosed with gynecomastia, he would require surgical procedures.
Gynecomastia surgery is a safe and risk-free surgical procedure, and if performed under the supervision of a good and experienced cosmetic surgeon, there are almost no complications or major side effects associated with the gynecomastia surgery.
However, like any other surgical procedures, gynecomastia surgery too cause certain minor side effects in some patients, the common ones being:
If there are any chances of risk and complications, there are good chances that your doctor will discuss it all with you prior to the surgery.
Most men seeking gynecomastia treatment are concerned about one particular factor – the scar after the procedure. Depending upon the severity of the condition, the level of incision in gynecomastia surgery may vary, and so do the scars. Typically, the scars involved in gynecomastia surgery are not severe. They are minor as any other common surgical procedures. The scars usually occur near the nipple or the areola and are not always easily visible.
Here are some ways to reduce gynecomastia surgery scars:
It is important to understand that although these tips can heal the scars in most cases, the results may not always be optimum. If you are looking for a solution to remove your scars, the best thing to do is consult with your cosmetic surgeon, evaluate the pros and cons, and get the best suggestions.
