Gynecomastia: A complete guide

Gynecomastia or man boobs is a medical condition in which the size of the breast of men increases. It is mostly found in men between the ages of 15 and 50.

What causes gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia occurs due to an imbalance of the female hormone estrogen and the male hormone testosterone. There are physiological and pathological gynecomastia types.

There are some phases of life where it is normal for the size of the breasts to increase like soon after birth, adolescence i.e. 13 to 15 years of age, in old age. This is called physiological gynecomastia. Usually, physiological gynecomastia does not require treatment.

Pathological Gynecomastia occurs as a side effect of medicines, kidney or liver disease, cancer of the testes and adrenal glands, or over-consumption of steroids. But in more than 50% of people, there is no cause of gynecomastia, this is called idiopathic gynecomastia.

There are 2 further types of gynecomastia, true gynecomastia, and pseudo gynecomastia.

True gynecomastia occurs due to the accumulation of glandular tissues whereas pseudo gynecomastia occurs due to the accumulation of excess fat.

How is gynecomastia treated?

During the consultation, the cosmetic surgeon will take your detailed history, do your physical examination and advise relevant blood tests and sonography.

The treatment of gynecomastia depends on its grade and its cause. If gynecomastia has been caused due to medicines, then those medicines have to be stopped immediately or have to be changed and if it does not cure gynecomastia, then surgery has to be done. If gynecomastia has occurred due to increased fat, then it can reduce the excess fat of the chest through diet, and exercise, but surgery is often required. If gynecomastia is due to cancer of the testes and adrenal glands, then gynecomastia surgery has to be done along with cancer treatment.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

How surgery will be done in gynecomastia depends on its composition. If an excess amount of glandular tissues is the cause of gynecomastia, then it is removed by surgical excision technique. If the reason is fat tissues, it is treated with liposuction. But in most cases, there is a combination of gland and fat tissues in which both liposuction and gland excision surgery is needed. Few patients have female-type breasts, so they require proper breast reduction surgery. Scar marks are not visible in liposuction surgery because the incisions that are made are only in millimeters.
