What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the medical term that refers to the abnormal presence of female breast tissue inside a man’s chest.

This condition is common in men. Often it can occur during puberty or old age due to an imbalance between estrogen and testosterone. Other external causes of gynecomastia include the use of anabolic steroids or supplements, certain prescription medications, marijuana or weight fluctuation.

There are two goals of male breast reduction surgery. The first is to make it look like patients never had gynecomastia. The second goal is to make it look like no chest surgery wa done. As a result, patients after gynecomastia surgery can expect to have a flat, well-contoured chest with hidden scars.

Types of Gynecomastia:

There are different types of gynecomastia, and because of this, different surgical techniques are required depending on the case. In some men, gynecomastia is mainly comprised of fat.

Liposuction is very effective for these cases, where a small incision is made on the side of the chest to remove subcutaneous fat. In other patients, there is actual glandular tissue present behind the areola. This requires an incision at the bottom of the areola, which allows surgical access to cut out the gland directly. Most cases are a mixture of fatty and glandular gynecomastia, so liposuction and direct excision are often combined.

A specific category of male breast reduction patients includes those who have undergone massive weight loss and are left with extra skin on their chest. These cases require skin excision and repositioning of the nipple and areola. This is only required in the most extreme cases.

The Procedure

Gynecomastia surgery can be done under either local or general anesthetic, depending on the case.

Surgery occurs in a private surgery center or hospital and usually lasts 1-2 hours. After surgery, a chest bandage and a compression vest are applied. Surgical drains may be required.

Patients can go home directly after their procedure. Most patients take one week off work, depending on their job. It is important to note that patients are restricted from heavy lifting or vigorous exercise for 4 weeks after surgery. Patients are also required to wear a compression vest during these 4 weeks. The vest is easily concealed under clothing.
