Understanding Gynecomastia

What is Gynecomastia? //

Gynecomastia is breast glandular development in males. There are many potential causes, including hormonal fluctuations, medications, medical conditions, and illicit drugs such as marijuana and anabolic steroids. 40% of adolescent males develop breast tissue during puberty due to changes in hormonal levels (estrogens and androgens) or the cellular response to hormones.

Most cases of gynecomastia resolve after puberty, but if a larger amount of breast tissue fails to resolve, gynecomastia can be a source of considerable embarrassment. In these cases, medical evaluation and surgical treatment is recommended. Some older men also develop gynecomastia due to altered conversion of testosterone to estrogen, but treatment is usually not indicated. Pseudogynecomastia is another condition that can cause the appearance of female breasts in men and is far more common that gynecomastia. In this condition, which is primarily associated with obesity or significant weight loss, lax skin on the chest wall and fatty tissue are responsible for the appearance of feminine breasts. This cosmetic issue can be corrected as well. The correction of gynecomastia requires careful planning and execution to reduce and tighten the tissues without feminizing the chest area.

A New Beginning

Your Gynecomastia Surgery Procedure //

Laboratory evaluation can determine if gynecomastia is due to a condition such as liver disease, alcoholism, renal failure, chromosomal anomalies, or endocrine abnormalities or tumors. A physical exam will help determine if there is a testicular, breast, or pituitary tumor as a cause. Further evaluation with radiographs or ultrasound may be indicated. Most cases, however, have no associated medical problems. In these cases, our Mobile gynecomastia surgery can be helpful.

The technique needed is dependent on the amount of excess skin and the components of the breast tissue. Individuals whose breast is primarily fat can be treated with liposuction with minimal scarring. Ultrasonic liposuction assists in the removal of dense fat and breast tissue and skin tightening. Firm breast tissue or a large breastplate requires surgical removal, typically through an incision limited to the lower half of the areola. However, severe skin excess will require additional scarring like a breast reduction and possibly moving the nipple/areola as a graft.

Additional Reading

The operation is usually performed on an outpatient basis with sedation and local anesthesia, but major corrections may require general anesthesia and overnight observation. In some instances, one-night admission to the hospital may be necessary.

Recovery is rapid in most cases, and one to two weeks after surgery, sutures are removed, and activities resumed. Bruising will last up to a week. Compression can minimize swelling, but the true result will still be masked for one to two months. Potential problems include scarring, nipple retraction after removal of the excess tissue, altered nipple sensation or viability, asymmetry, and an unexpected malignancy diagnosis.

Gynecomastia Surgery Frequently Asked Questions //

Gynecomastia, the enlargement of male breast tissue, can result from various factors. Hormonal changes during adolescence, aging, certain medications, and underlying medical conditions can contribute to its development. It can affect men of all ages, but it's more common in adolescents and older adults. In some cases, it may be linked to genetics, obesity, or the use of anabolic steroids.

Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is a highly effective treatment for persistent and severe cases of gynecomastia. However, for mild cases caused by medications or underlying medical conditions, addressing the root cause or adjusting medications may help reduce breast tissue. It's essential to consult with a healthcare professional or plastic surgeon to determine the most appropriate course of action based on the severity and underlying causes of gynecomastia.
