What is Gynaecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a disorder that causes enlargement of the male breast tissue. It can affect men of all ages, but it is most common in newborns, adolescence, and later adulthood. Gynecomastia can be caused by a variety of factors, the most prevalent of which is a hormonal imbalance between testosterone and estrogen.
Grade 1: Nipples become puffy
Grade 2: Excess fat + puffy nipples
Grade 3: Puffy nipples + a lot of fat + a lot of extra skin
Grade 4: Breasts resemble those of a woman.
In India, the majority of cases are classified as Grade 1 or 2, which means that minimally invasive surgery is the best treatment option.
As mentioned earlier, gynecomastia is caused by an imbalance of estrogen and androgen hormones. Estrogen, the hormone that governs breast growth, is produced in modest levels by men’s bodies. Your breasts may grow if your body produces too much estrogen or if you have little testosterone (hypogonadism).
Obese people may acquire larger breasts as a result of extra fatty tissue. Pseudogynecomastia is the medical term for this condition.
Male breast growth can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Tumors of the adrenal glands
- Renal disease or kidney failure is a condition in which the kidneys are damaged or fail
- Klinefelter syndrome is a disorder that affects people (an inherited condition)
- The illness of the liver
- Thyroid disorder
Who is at Risk for Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia (also known as gynaecomastia) is a condition that affects men.
Gynecomastia can happen at any time, for example:
- Male neonates with swollen breasts (breast buds) account for more than half of all male newborns. The mother’s estrogen levels cause this disease. Within a few weeks, the swollen breasts should disappear.
- Breast augmentation affects more than half of adolescent guys. Breast tissue grows as a result of changing hormone levels, such as testosterone dips and estrogen surges. The disease improves as hormone levels balance out, which takes six to two years.
- Men over 50 are more likely to have enlarged breasts than women. The production of testosterone in men’s bodies decreases as they age. They may also have greater body fat, which promotes the production of estrogen and the growth of breast tissue.
- Certain types of medications can also cause the onset of gynecomastia symptoms.
Some men may not desire or require gynecomastia therapy. If a medicine or other substance is causing your breasts to expand, you may need to stop using it or switch to another. If the cause is a disease, the swelling should subside as the disease is treated. Some guys elect to have their breasts reduced through surgery. A plastic surgeon removes breast tissue to make the breasts smaller during this operation.
What is breast reduction surgery?
A breast reduction procedure (mammoplasty) reduces the size of your breasts. People who have excessively large breasts may endure back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as other physical complaints. The size of your breasts can also affect your self-esteem and sense of well-being. Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of breast fat, tissue, and skin to obtain a more comfortable breast size.
What are the Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery or Male-breast Reduction Surgery?
It is only normal for some men to experience low self-esteem due to their appearance, especially if the physical limitation becomes noticeable to people around us. Every man wishes for a well-proportioned chest. Because the appearance of their chest does not conform to their gender, men with big breasts sometimes feel ashamed and psychologically disturbed.
Gynecomastia surgery can help you overcome this humiliation. Gynecomastia surgery aids in the development of a well-toned chest, which improves posture. In the long run, a larger chest may lead to hunching. With a smaller chest, you can engage in more physical activities to maintain your body fit and healthy. Gynecomastia surgery is a cost-effective answer to your problem that comes with no risk of failure or scarring. Among all the gynecomastia therapies available, this procedure has the highest success rate. There is no need to invest any more money because the outcomes are accurate and long-lasting.
Minimally invasive surgery has several advantages over traditional surgery:
- There is no obvious scar.
- Tightening of the skin in a consistent manner.
- Procedure time: 45 minutes to 1 hour| Discharge the same day.
- In two days, you can return to work.
- There will be no repeat.
