Gynecomastia Surgery for Man Boob Reduction

Gynecomastia is a body condition wherein the breast gland tissues develop in men. This condition can affect one or both breasts and the key causes include medication, puberty, ageing, or health conditions leading to disturbed hormonal balance. Gynecomastia makes the breast tender and soft.

Reasons for Development and Why Do You Need Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

In a healthy man, the mammary glands are in an underdeveloped state, this is a rudiment. However, they comprise glandular tissue, short underdeveloped milk ducts and a nipple. These elements remain sensitive to female sex hormones and manifest themselves whenever there is a change in the hormonal status. Among both men and women, the size and proliferation of glandular tissue rely on the estrogen and prolactin level (a hormone of the anterior pituitary gland).

In a healthy man in his late 20s and early 30s, the content of female sex hormones is one-hundredth of a percent of the level of male hormones. If there are changes in the level of female and male hormones, the mammary glands are the first to respond, this causes the development of gynecomastia in men.

The primary causes for the imbalance of hormones in the body of a man can be as follows:

  • Tumours of organs that produce hormones - pituitary gland, testes, adrenal glands.
  • Prostate adenoma.
  • Hypogonadism - congenital or acquired with age.
  • Addison's disease or adrenal cortex insufficiency.
  • Long-term external use of creams containing many estrogens.
  • Severe somatic diseases with metabolic disorders - diabetes mellitus, goiter, tuberculosis, obesity.
  • Decreased thyroid function.
  • Severe types of failure - heart, hepatic, renal.
  • Long-term intake of certain medications - glucocorticoid hormones, antipsychotics.
  • Alcoholism.
  • Drug use.

Symptoms and Signs of Gynecomastia

The primary symptom of gynecomastia is a significant increase in the mammary glands. It can reach 10-15 centimetres in diameter. The size of the nipple increases, the areola increases and also acquires a darker shade.

The gynecomastia signs can vary depending on the clinical form of the disease:

Parenchymal: The structure of the male organ becomes similar to that of a woman. The lobules in which the milk duct passes become enlarged.

DendricA soft formation starts appearing on the breast, which goes into the thickness of the adipose tissue.

Nodal: Its primary manifestation is the appearance of tight knots that can be felt behind the nipple.

If you notice any of the aforementioned signs, it is recommended to consult any experienced surgeon for gynecomastia treatment or gynecomastia surgery.

Grades of Gynecomastia:

Grade 1: Puffy nipples
Grade 2: Puffy nipples with excess fat
Grade 3: Puffy nipples with excess fat & excess skin
Grade 4: Breast similar to female
The point to note here is that most Indians with Gynecomastia have either grade 1 or grade 2 symptoms wherein invasive surgery is the best option to opt for.

How to Know if You Have Gynecomastia?

Usually, it is very perplexing for men to identify whether it’s merely a fat deposit in the chest area or they have gynecomastia. There are some checklists to help you in the process:-
  • Gynecomastia keeps chests firmer while chest fat keeps male breasts saggy
  • Chest fat reduces with regular exercise but not the gynecomastia
  • A firm lump can be felt under the areola region in case of gynecomastia

Things to Know About the Male Chest Surgery

Diagnosing gynecomastia is a simple process and your doctor will ask you some simple questions like how long you have been noticing breast tissues, your current medication, health history, or past illnesses related to liver or kidney. In addition to this, you have to be honest about alcohol consumption and drug addiction. Following this, you would be asked to undergo physical examination based on your age, medical history, and current medication. If you are a teenager, then you do not require any test as Gynecomastia is very common among teenage males.
