Treatment

Diagnosis

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:

  • Mammogram or breast ultrasound
  • Chest X-rays
  • CT Scan or MRI Scan
  • Ultrasound of testicles
  • 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 Meerut 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.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Abhishek Vijay Kumar-Say-About-Gynecomastia-Treatment

Dr. Abhishek Vijay Kumar

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch. - Plastic Surgery

13 Years Experience

"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."

The common signs of pseudogynecomastia include – bilateral breast-like appearance in the chest and fatty tissues beneath the chest. 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.

Which is the best way to get rid of enlarged breasts?

The best way to get rid of enlarged breasts is to undergo gynecomastia surgery. The surgical treat is also known as male breast reduction surgery. It is generally done through a combination of liposuction and gland excision techniques to provide better results.

How to identify gynecomastia?

When a man suffers from gynecomastia, a hard lump can be felt near/ around his areola or nipple area. The lump will feel unusual in touch. In some cases, the lump may feel painful too.

Is there noticeable scarring after gynecomastia surgery?

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.

Is gynecomastia compression garment effective?

Compression garments are most important for the initial 2 weeks after gynecomastia surgery. Not wearing a gynecomastia compression garment can make the skin loose and delay the healing process. As such, most of the doctors ask their patients to mandatorily wear compression garments round the clock immediately after gynecomastia surgery.

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.
