Gynecomastia is an enlargement of the male breast gland because of a hormonal imbalance, but the appearance of enlarged breasts may be ascribed to pseudogynecomastia, a symptom of excess fat which deposits on the chest. It can be common and temporary in boys going through puberty.
At least 40% of males will be affected during their life. Since it causes anxiety, psychosocial discomfort and fear of breast cancer, early diagnostic evaluation is important and patients usually seek medical attention. Gynecomastia was reported to cause an imbalance between estrogen and androgen action or an increased estrogen to androgen ratio, due to increased estrogen production, decreased androgen production or both.
There is 3 types of gynecomastia: Type 1: This condition is when a man has a puffy look to his nipple, which can appear cone-like and protruding. Type 2: This is a more extreme amount of glandular tissue and fat. And type 3: this type of gynecomastia includes breast sagging, with the nipple structure drifting lower.
Gynecomastia, can be an embarrassing and stress-inducing condition. If you're able to get on a regimen that will bring you closer in line with your ideal Body Mass Index, chances are at least some of the effects of gynecomastia may be reversed. If you still have significant bothersome breast enlargement despite initial treatment or observation, you may consider surgery.
Two gynecomastia surgery options exist: Liposuction, this surgery removes breast fat, but not the breast gland tissue itself, and Mastectomy: This type of surgery removes the breast gland tissue.
Gynecomastia often responds well to liposuction. This technique is especially well-suited for pseudogynecomastia. Using small incisions located at either side of your chest or within the armpit, your doctor inserts a small, tube-shaped device that removes the excess fat and glandular tissue and sculpts a new contour that appears natural for your body’s overall shape. More severe cases of gynecomastia respond best to surgical excision of the glandular breast tissue. Your doctor also recommends surgery if you have stretched or sagging skin around the breasts, which he can tighten and reshape during the procedure. In some cases, he uses liposuction along with surgical excision for optimal results.
The surgery is often done endoscopically, meaning only small incisions are used. This less invasive type of surgery involves less recovery time.
