Before surgery, the doctor will perform a physical examination to accurately diagnose whether you have gynecomastia or chest fat, also known as pseudogynecomastia.
The physical examination is done while the patient is lying on his back. It includes:
Besides the physical examination, the doctor will also recommend a few tests, such as X-rays, MRIs, ultrasound, etc., that will allow the doctor to gather more information about your overall health and narrow down the most appropriate treatment option.
Once you are taken to the operation theater (OT), the anesthetist will inject the solution into the breast region. Usually, the surgery is performed under local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used if the patient has an allergic reaction to some component of the anesthesia. Once the doctor ensures that the patient won’t have any sensation in the chest region, then they proceed with the following steps:
Gynecomastia is of two types- true gynecomastia and pseudogynecomastia. In true gynecomastia, only breast glandular tissues are present. Unlike this, in pseudogynecomastia, mainly fat tissues give the appearance of breasts.
To treat true gynecomastia, the surgeon uses the gland excision technique to remove the glandular tissues permanently. And for the treatment of pseudogynecomastia, the surgeon uses liposuction as most of the fat tissues can be successfully removed through this technique.
In younger teens and children, the breasts will disappear as soon as the hormones stabilize. But in adults, the condition doesn’t go away without proper treatment. And the best treatment method for gynecomastia treatment is surgery. The surgical procedure is known as male breast reduction surgery.
Before the technology was advanced, breast tissues were excised through open surgery, which was invasive in nature. But thanks to modern technology, now male breast reduction surgery is performed using one of the two techniques or a combination of both:
Generally, in gynecomastia, both fat tissues and glandular tissues are present. Due to this, these two techniques are combined together to treat gynecomastia permanently.
Gynaecomastia surgery is usually a safe procedure with minimal risks. While the surgery is being carried out, the doctor will ensure that the patient’s health is not at risk at all. Still, there are some risks that a patient should be aware of before having the surgery. These includes:
These complications rarely arise if you have an experienced and well-trained surgeon beside you. Moreover, the doctor will ask you to sign a consent form after discussing all the possible risks and complications prior to the surgery.
To prepare for the male breast reduction surgery, the doctor will first ask you to:
The success rate and safety of gynecomastia surgery depend on how well you prepare for the treatment and whether you understand the effect of your lifestyle choices.
You should seek treatment from a plastic surgeon the moment you notice changes in your chest region. If the following symptoms are present, it is time to consult an expert-
Surgery is the best way to treat gynecomastia. Other methods can only stop the condition from progressing further, they won’t reverse the condition. The developed tissues can only be removed through excision.
After having gynecomastia surgery, the following side effects may occur-
Typically, you can return to work or school within 2-4 days after surgery. At Pristyn Care, we employ the minimally invasive technique to treat gynecomastia. Thus, the downtime will be a few days only. However, if your work involves strenuous activities, the doctor may ask you to wait longer to rejoin work.
The compression vest is given to the patient to keep the swelling and bruising minimal. The vest provides great support to the chest muscles. You will have to wear the vest 24×7 for the first two weeks. The duration will be further adjusted by the doctor after the first follow-up.
Yes ,as the swelling goes away, the skin of that area will contract, become smoother, and the scar will fade within a short span of time or few days .
The short answer is yes, gynecomastia (male breast) sometimes come back after surgery. However, cases of gynecomastia recurrence are very rare (only one in thousands).
Immediately after the surgery, you will notice an improvement in the shape and appearance of the chest. Once the anesthesia wears out, you may feel sore for a couple of days. The chest area will have dressings to cover the wound, and there will only be minimal pain. If needed, the doctor may prescribe pain medications to help you get relief.
Before you leave the hospital, the dietician will provide a list of foods that will help you recover faster. You will be discharged from the hospital on the same day or the next day after the surgery. Besides this, you will also have to wear a compression garment to hold the chest muscles and reduce post-surgery swelling.
This grade has only a minor level of enlargement in the breasts. A localized button of tissue starts to grow around the areola. The chest will only be slightly swollen, and it won’t be noticeable when you are wearing clothes. Thus, treatment is usually not required at this grade.
At this grade, the male breast tissues expand to the width of the chest. The pectoral muscles are almost completely covered with the breast tissues, but the edges are still less prominent. At this grade, the doctors prescribe a diet to reduce the estrogen levels in the body. Surgery can also be done if the patient feels concerned.
It is a moderate stage of breast development at which the breast tissues become completely visible through clothes. The excess skin continues to grow and become more prominent. The breasts also have more firmness at this stage. The patient can opt for surgical treatment at this stage too.
At this grade, the development of breasts is almost complete. It is the most severe stage as there is a large amount of excess skin. At this stage, the condition becomes a major obstacle in the man’s social life as the chest looks like breasts. Thus, the doctor recommends undergoing male breast reduction surgery.
A man is considered an ideal candidate for gynecomastia surgery if he meets the following criteria-
Here are the top 5 advantages of choosing surgery to reduce enlarged breasts in males over other treatment options.
Gynecomastia surgery recovery is not complex. The patient is likely to recover within 2 to 4 weeks after the surgery. The following tips will be given to the patient for a smoother and faster recovery.
Immediately after the surgery, you will be on a liquid diet. Then you can gradually switch to a solid diet. You have to make sure that you eat healthy foods and plenty of water. Try to avoid drinking alcohol and smoking after the surgery for at least a month to get desired results.
For the first 24 hours after surgery, it is advised that you get plenty of rest. After that, restrain from performing any type of strenuous activity such as driving, operating machinery, or lifting heavy weights. Though you don’t have to stay in bed all the time, and you are free to walk and climb the stairs, make sure that you don’t push your limits. As your body heals, you will be able to resume all activities without any hassle.
To make sure that the chest tissues stay in place and swelling subsides quickly, the doctor will suggest that you wear compression garments for at least 2-3 weeks throughout the day. Over time, you can limit the usage of the garment up to 12 hours.
Throughout the recovery process, you will have to avoid taking medications like ibuprofen, aspirin, etc. These medicines can interfere with the blood clotting system and increase the risk of complications. If you take other medicines on a regular basis, those should also be cleared by the surgeon.
Leaving gynecomastia untreated usually has both physical and psychological impacts on the individual.
In many cases, gynecomastia resolves on its own once the primary cause is identified and addressed. For instance, if the breasts start to grow due to the effects of a medication, the growth can be stopped by stopping the medicine and using an alternative one. But you should know that the growth of breast tissues will stop, but the effects won’t be reversed.
Surgery is the only definitive way to treat gynecomastia. However, there are some methods available that can improve the appearance of the chest region. The following options may be of help to some extent-
These methods usually don’t help over the long haul. As a result, the patient has to rely on surgery for an effective solution.
A couple of months ago, on 7th May, Mr. Shivank Kapoor (name changed) contacted us about the enlarged breast tissues. He had grade III gynecomastia and wanted to undergo surgery to get rid of the problem. He was planning his wedding; therefore, undergoing surgery as quickly as possible was necessary for him. One of the best doctors we have, Dr. Ashwani Kumar, handled the case and performed the male breast reduction surgery. The patient had both fat and glandular tissues, which were extracted and excised carefully. The results of the surgery were visible within 2-3 days. There weren’t many risks involved in the procedure as the patient was healthy and didn’t have any habits that could alter the results of the surgery.
Shivank took good care of his body and followed all the instructions given by Dr. Ashwani. His wound healed in the 2nd week, and the scars also disappeared completely before his wedding. He was satisfied with the results and recovered completely within a month.

I was struggling with grade 3 gynecomastia and it was something that was affecting my mental health. I was embarrassed to leave my house or wear the clothes I wear. I am very glad however, that I had my gynecomastia surgery through Dr. Anil Kaler. He was very empathetic throughout my surgical journey and helped me at every step. My gynecomastia surgery was successful and its all because of Dr. Anil. Thank you. I can now confidently go out and wear the clothes I like without being embarrassed of my appearance.
