About Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is not harmful to one’s body but they may cause psychological stress to the person affected.

It impairs one’s self confidence that some men avoid physical activities and intimacy to hide their condition.

Males from all the ages are prone to male breast tissue proliferation.

It starts to occur during infancy, puberty or when a man reaches his 50’s.

The condition can be a result of hormonal imbalance, obesity or the use of certain drugs.

Gynecomastia can be classified in to three subtypes according to the nature of the proliferated tissues : Glandular, Fatty glandular and Simple primarily fatty in nature.

The type of operation will be determined after classifying it, Either Mastectomy(mammary gland removal) or Lipectomy(liposuction) will be done or both.

Why Operation is needed?

Gynecomastia that occurs during infancy or puberty will disappear naturally overtime. However, If it lasts more  1 year, it will start to remain in one’s body.

At this point, Medication is most likely not effective anymore as the stroma has fibrous already.

Surgery has to be done when medical therapy fails.

It won’t go away just exercise or diet.

Surgery is also will be done to prevent patients from breast cancer and fat accumulation.

After surgery, we send a sample of the patients’s mammary gland to check for breast cancer.

The aim of surgical treatment for gynecomastia is not only to create a normal chest looking and eliminate the inframammary fold but also to rule out breast cancer and other underlying diseases.
