What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is an abnormal enlargement of breast tissue in men causing abnormal bulges and puffy nipples. The chest in such cases looks feminine. Many young men with these man boobs feel ashamed of their chest. Gynecomastia is a common problem, luckily it is easy to treat by keyhole method. The term comes from the Greek words gyne meaning “woman” and masters meaning “breast.”
When can you have gynecomastia surgery?
Surgery is sought typically by boys & men in their late teens and men between 16-50 years of age.
Is gynecomastia harmful?
Male breast /Gynecomastia is not physically harmful. The presence of the abnormal enlargement of the breasts is psychologically disturbing for most men. Moreover, it can restrict certain physical activities where you are expected to be bare chest as in swimming or certain religious functions in India. The glandular tissue will not decrease in size with exercises. So if you are concerned about male breasts, surgery is usually the only solution. Many men have chosen to live with the problem, either due to lack of awareness regarding surgery or is not bothered about the appearance. If you are embarrassed about it, plan on getting rid of the male breasts by safe and effective keyhole surgery. Since the fat and gland can be removed through small cuts, the surgery is now acceptable to most men suffering from man boobs.
Keyhole surgery for gynecomastia
keyhole surgery for gynecomastiaGynecomastia can be reduced by minimal access surgery in most cases using special instruments and modified technique of Liposuction. Excess fat on the chest is removed by liposuction. The remaining tough gland tissue is then removed through a tiny incision under the areola. This results in adequate correction of chest shape. The scars are tiny and not easily visible in most cases. This method is better for Indian skin which is prone to have prominent scars. Hospital stay is not necessary. Drains are not required when a minimal access method is used. A custom made compression vest is put on immediately after surgery to reduce swelling and fluid collection.
In some cases of large male breasts with sagging of skin, a two-stage procedure may be required the first removal of the gland and fat by keyhole surgery and a few months later a skin tightening surgery. Sagging skin tightens up to a great extent in most people if an elastic vest is worn for a longer period about a month is enough.
Recovery after gynecomastia surgery
The surgery is performed as a daycare procedure and you will be able to go back on the same day. A custom made corset will be put on immediately after surgery and should be continued for 6-12 weeks. Minor discomfort and soreness can be expected in the initial few days. Swelling in the operated area will be greatest in 48-72 hours and then will keep on reducing till 3-4 weeks after the surgery.
Numbness/ altered sensation on the chest can occur during the healing phase. You may resume light physical activities within 24 hours. Gym and another heavy workout should be withheld for at least a month after surgery.
Does gynecomastia reoccur?
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)
