Gynecomastia Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

Physical examination for Gynecomastia

Diagnosis

To diagnose your problem of breast enlargement, the doctor asks your family’s medical history. The doctor will also physically examine your breasts and might also check your genitals for any underlying cause. A man is said to be suffering from gynecomastia when the tissues of his breasts grow more than 0.5 cm in diameter.

Additionally, your doctor can also ask for tests like MRI scans, CT scans, X-rays, and blood tests.

Procedure

The best and the most effective treatment to correct gynecomastia is – liposuction followed by gland excision surgery. In this process, the surgeon will make tiny incisions around the areola. Using a metal cannula, he will drain out the excess amount of fat. After the liposuction is over, the next step is the gland excision surgery. In this procedure, the surgeon extracts the underlying glandular tissue around the breasts through the incision in the nipples. Later, the surgeon closes the incision with dissolvable sutures or stitches. The whole procedure is carried out under the influence of anesthesia which means you won’t be able to feel any pain.

What Is The Cost of Gynecomastia Surgery in Kolkata?

The cost of gynecomastia surgery in Kolkata differs from individual to individual. In other words, the final expenditure depends on the specific needs of the patient undergoing the surgery. Let’s clear one thing in the beginning that a majority of the medical insurance companies in Kolkata do not provide coverage for the cost of gynecomastia treatment. The gynecomastia surgery is considered as a cosmetic surgery and therefore, it doesn’t make it to the list of surgeries covered by major health insurance plans. Therefore, it is important to get an estimated cost from the clinic or hospital before the surgery. The hospital staff provides an estimated expenditure of the whole treatment on the basis of the following factors-

  • The amount of fat or the extent of tissue removed during the procedure
  • Charges of the anesthetist depending on his or her special skills and qualifications
  • The type of technology used to remove the fat deposition
  • The specific area of the chest- around the nipples, under the areola, etc. from where the fat or tissue is removed
  • Any additional procedure such as arm lift, tummy tuck, etc. the individual chooses to undergo
  • Medicines, compression garments, prescribed painkillers, etc. used immediately after and during the procedure

Not covered within the budget is the following-

  • Any secondary medical problem that occurs during the surgery or after due to non-compliance of the preparatory steps by the patient
  • Medicines and post-operative care unit used during the entire period of recovery

What are the different grades of gynecomastia?

The treatment method for gynecomastia is chosen based on its grade or severity. The enlargement of breasts is divided into four grades:

  • Grade 1- The first grade has only a minor level of enlargement in the breasts. The tissues grow in a localized area around the areola and the chest appears slightly swollen.
  • Grade 2- At this grade, the glandular tissues expand to the chest width. The pectoral muscles get covered with the breast tissues but the edges won’t be as prominent as actual breasts.
  • Grade 3- This is the advanced stage of gynecomastia when the breast development is clearly visible, even through clothes. The excess skin continues to grow and become prominent. The breast tissues will also be more firm at this stage.
  • Grade 4- It is the last stage of gynecomastia development where the breast tissues have grown to a complete extent and start exhibiting painful symptoms, like back pain, posture issues, etc.

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.

What is the difference between gynecomastia and chest fat?

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.

Are there any side effects of gynecomastia surgery?

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:

  • Reaction to anesthesia – which goes away within a few hours after the surgery
  • Damage to deeper tissues – the chances of this risk can be minimized too if the surgery is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon
  • Damage to fatty tissues in the breast
  • Persistent pain
  • Possibility of a revision surgery
  • Scarring that lasts for longer time than expected

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.

Everything you need to know about gynecomastia surgery scars

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:

  • Maintain good hygiene – Good hygiene is important for any surgery to allow the wounds to heal and gynecomastia is no different. It is important for the patient as well as the doctor to maintain extreme levels of hygiene while operating the breasts to keep unwanted germs away. Moisturizing the surgical area before and after the surgery can prevent the skin from drying or turning red.
  • Take medications regularly – Whatever medications are prescribed by the cosmetic surgeon – oral pills, supplements or medicated ointments – make sure to take the medication on time and regularly.
  • Use scar gels – The healing properties of scar gels make it an optimal solution to reduce the appearance of surgical scars after gynecomastia surgery. Apply scar gels on the incision site to reduce the scar size and pigmentation.
  • Use lasers – Once the gynecomastia surgery is over, you can consult with a dermatologist or the same cosmetic surgeon and check if you can undergo laser treatments to remove the scars. Microscopic laser technique can be a great solution to remove deep scars.
  • Avoid exposing the site to sunlight – Do not step out without covering the surgical site. Applying a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or above can help the scars heal faster.

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.
