Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the enlargement of breast tissue in males. It can result in the appearance of “male breasts” and can affect one or both sides of the chest. Gynecomastia can be caused by hormonal imbalances, genetics, certain medications, obesity, or other underlying medical conditions.
The treatment of gynecomastia depends on the underlying cause and severity of the condition. In some cases, lifestyle changes such as weight loss or discontinuing medications that may be causing the condition can be sufficient. However, for persistent or severe cases, surgical intervention may be recommended. Surgical options include liposuction to remove excess fat and glandular tissue, and in some cases, surgical excision may be necessary to address excess skin or glandular tissue.
Suitable candidates for gynecomastia surgery are individuals who have persistent and bothersome gynecomastia that does not respond to conservative treatments. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery. It is important to have a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your specific condition and determine the best course of treatment.
The recovery process after gynecomastia surgery can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and individual factors. Patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. A compression garment may be recommended to provide support and help reduce swelling. Most individuals can return to work and light activities within a week or two, but it may take several weeks to fully recover. Strenuous exercise and activities that put pressure on the chest should be avoided for a few weeks.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with gynecomastia surgery. These can include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, asymmetry, contour irregularities, changes in nipple sensation, scarring, and dissatisfaction with the results. It’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in treating gynecomastia and discuss potential risks and complications with them. Following their pre- and post-operative instructions carefully can help minimize risks and achieve optimal results.
