What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia (or) Gynaecomastia, most commonly referred to as ‘MALE BREASTS’ or “MALE CHEST ENLARGEMENT” is a common condition. Enlarged male chest results from hormonal imbalances at any age, though other causes also do exist. There is an increase in the amount of breast gland tissue and / or fat.

Is gynecomastia a serious problem?

Though not a serious medical problem, enlarged male breast are often abnormally prominent and may be tough to cope with emotionally for a few. Many teens who suffer with this condition are body shamed and eventually suffer a very low self-esteem in the later course of life.

Does Gynecomastia go away its own?

Most often, the breast swelling resulting from transient hormonal changes during puberty may go away on its own without treatment, usually within 6 months to 2 years of onset. If it persists, surgical correction is the most straightforward solution to correct the swollen breasts. Exercise and dieting are inadequate in addressing abnormally large male breasts.

These enlarged tissues are neither cancerous nor cause any health concerns. Many with man boobs experience pain in their breasts to varying degrees, most often referred to as “PAINFUL GYNECOMASTIA” and are ideal candidates for a surgical procedure.

Does gynecomastia re occur?

  • The glandular tissue of male breasts does not form again and thus the surgery provides permanent removal of the breast tissue. However, if you put on a lot of weight, fat cells on the chest can enlarge and can cause fullness of the chest again (pseudo Gynecomastia)

Why it is important to wear compression garment after Surgery for gynecomastia?

  • In Gynecomastia surgery, we take out fat and gland. It is important for skin to stick to Chest. Adequate pressure from outside ensures that there in dead space between the two layers and skin re drapes well. It also ensures faster recovery as swelling and bruising is also less.
