Introduction To Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement, is characterized by the accumulation of excess fatty and glandular tissue in the chest area of males. Typically, this condition arises during adolescence due to hormonal changes, particularly during the transition from gender-neutral hormones to male-predominant hormones.

Types and causes of gynecomastia

During adolescence, some males may experience physiological gynecomastia, where breast enlargement occurs as a natural part of development. This type of gynecomastia is usually transient and resolves on its own within 6 months to 2 years, typically completing before the age of 18.

However, in some cases, gynecomastia persists beyond adolescence and into adulthood. This persistent form, known as idiopathic gynecomastia, may require surgical intervention for correction. Surgical treatment aims to restore a normal body image and alleviate any persistent discomfort or pain in the glandular region.

Secondary Gynecomastia can develop due to various medical conditions or prolonged use of certain medications. Some medications known to cause Gynecomastia include:

These medications and substances can disrupt hormone levels and contribute to the development of Gynecomastia.

Medical conditions: Medical conditions such as undescended testes (where the testes are not positioned in the scrotum but rather at a higher level like in the groin or above), certain testicular tumors, and pituitary tumors can lead to reduced testosterone production in the body, causing an imbalance of hormones. This hormonal imbalance, with altered testosterone and estrogen ratios, can contribute to the development of Gynecomastia.

Additionally, diseases of the liver, kidneys, and adrenal glands can also cause Gynecomastia. These conditions may disrupt hormone regulation and contribute to the enlargement of male breast tissue.

Medical treatments for Gynecomastia may involve the use of certain medications, some of which are also utilized in cancer treatment. However, at Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Centre, our experienced and qualified surgeons do not typically recommend these medications. They have been found to be less effective and may not completely correct the condition. Moreover, they carry the risk of certain side effects. Instead, our surgeons frequently perform surgical procedures for patients who have tried these medicines without success.

Effect of Exercise and Diet: Regarding the impact of exercise and diet on gynecomastia, it’s important to understand that this condition develops due to hormonal influences and glandular hypertrophy. While changes in body weight may result in some fluctuation in the size of gynecomastia, diet and exercise alone cannot fully correct it. While exercise and diet may affect overall body weight, they cannot specifically target the underlying hormonal factors contributing to gynecomastia. Therefore, surgical intervention is often necessary for effective correction.

Who is an ideal candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

If you are experiencing gynecomastia and are looking for effective treatment options, you may be an ideal candidate for gynecomastia surgery. Other factors that may allow you to undergo gynecomastia surgery include being unhappy with the appearance of the chest, being a non-smoker, and not being overweight.

What To Expect At The Consultation For Gynecomastia Surgery?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Hitesh Laad will review your medical history and perform a physical examination to assess the extent of your gynecomastia. He will also discuss and understand your goals and expectations and answer any questions that you may have about gynecomastia surgery.

If you are considering gynecomastia surgery, it is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing this procedure. This will help to ensure you achieve optimal results and minimize your risk for complications.

What is the procedure of Gynecomastia/Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

Gynecomastia treatment involves addressing male breast enlargement, which can significantly impact an individual’s mental well-being by causing increased stress and depression. At Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Centre in Pune, we offer a safe and ethical surgical option for treating Gynecomastia.

The objectives of Gynecomastia treatment are:

  1. Restoration of the male breast contour.
  2. Correction of breast deformity.
  3. Plastic and cosmetic surgeons are the most qualified professionals to handle this condition. Dr. Hitesh Laad (MS MCh: Plastic surgery) at Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Centre is a board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeon with over 13 years of expertise in treating Gynecomastia.

The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia or tumescent anesthesia, where only the operating zone is anesthetized. Dr. Laad employs a combination of liposuction and open excision of the gland (via an intra-areolar incision) to achieve the best possible aesthetic outcome. This technique allows for the removal of all deposited fatty tissue and hypertrophied glandular tissue in the chest region, minimizing the risk of Gynecomastia recurrence. In severe cases, patients may require a skin resection and nipple transposition technique.

Our surgeon prioritizes the aesthetic restoration of the normal chest contour to ensure optimal results for patients undergoing Gynecomastia surgery.

How Is The Cost Of Gynecomastia Surgery Determined?

The cost of gynecomastia surgery depends on many factors, including the extent of your condition, the techniques used by your surgeon, and other related expenses such as anesthesia fees, cost of post surgical garments, and facility costs. To get an accurate estimate of the cost of gynecomastia surgery in your area, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing this procedure. At your consultation, he will assess your situation and provide you with a personalized quote that takes all of these factors into account.

Also, note that insurance coverage is not available for gynecomastia surgery.

Benefits of Gynecomastia/Male Breast Reduction Surgery

The benefits of gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction surgery include:

What Is The Recovery From Gynecomastia Surgery Like?

At Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Surgery Centre, our experts provide a pressure garment or pressure belt immediately following surgery. This garment is worn on the chest to apply measured pressure, which helps prevent seroma or hematoma formation (the accumulation of fluid or blood under the skin) and aids in faster recovery and restoration of the natural chest shape.

Patients are advised to wear the garment for up to six weeks after surgery, with intermittent release for comfort, cleanliness, and hygiene. Stitches are minimal and absorbable, and if removal is necessary, it is typically done within seven days of surgery.

During the recovery process, patients are not confined to bed rest and can move around within their homes. They are fully capable of self-care and can even engage in work-from-home activities if feasible for their profession. Antibiotics, probiotics, analgesics, and antacids are prescribed for the initial five days to aid in recovery.

During the recovery period, it’s crucial to follow these instructions:

Remember not to smoke or drink alcohol for at least one week before and after surgery.

Are there any risks or complications associated with Gynecomastia Surgery?

While Gynecomastia surgery is generally safe and successful, it’s natural to have concerns. However, when performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon, there’s little reason to fear the procedure. Here are some important potential side effects to be aware of, though they are usually easily correctable:

Seroma or Hematoma Formation:

One common side effect is the accumulation of fluid or blood under the skin, known as seroma or hematoma, respectively. Fortunately, these collections can often be absorbed naturally or easily removed with a syringe and needle. At Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Centre, our board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons take all necessary precautions to minimize the risk of these unwanted conditions.

Concave Deformity of the Chest:

This condition can occur if minimal glandular tissue is not preserved beneath the nipple and areola during surgery. However, we prioritize preserving this natural tissue at our center, ensuring that it remains in its proper position and blends seamlessly with the surrounding normal chest tissue, resulting in the best possible aesthetic outcome.

Other potential issues such as delayed wound healing of the suture line, infection, or minor chest asymmetry can be addressed through careful planning and meticulous execution of the surgery.

There are certain risks connected with gynecomastia surgery, just like with any other surgery. They are as follows:

All of these Gynecomastia surgery issues are uncommon, and not all of them will happen to a specific patient.
