Gynaecomastia is a common condition that affects 1 in 10 men in the UK. The presence of enlarged breast tissue might result in low self-esteem and social anxiety due to the stigma associated with male breasts. Read on this to know more about Male breast reduction surgery.  

What is Gynaecomastia? 

Gynaecomastia is a medical condition in males that occurs when the male breast tissue, or breast glandular tissue, becomes enlarged and may even swell to form lumps under the nipple area. Although it can affect men of any age, it is most commonly seen in teenage boys and older men. For some, it can be a temporary condition caused by puberty or an unhealthy diet. But for others, it can be a chronic medical condition that requires Gynaecomastia surgery to get rid of their chest fat. 

What causes Gynaecomastia in males? 

While Gynaecomastia can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from normal development in boys to serious medical conditions, Hormonal imbalances are believed to be the most common cause of increased breast tissue. 

This condition can occur as a result of an imbalance between two hormones testosterone and oestrogen. Oestrogen is responsible for the growth of breast tissue. Although all men produce some oestrogen, they typically have higher levels of testosterone, which inhibits the effects of oestrogen. 

When this balance gets upset, the body produces too much oestrogen and not enough testosterone which leads to breast growth in men. This condition usually affects one or both breasts, but some men experience swelling on only one side of their chest. 

In a few cases, Gynaecomastia can also be caused by underlying medical conditions, such as: 

  • Breast Cancer 
  • Diabetes  
  • Thyroid disease  
  • Steroids  
  • Liver damage 
  • Chronic kidney 

So, it is important to see a surgeon and get to the root of the problem, before it becomes a major health issue.  

How can Gynaecomastia be treated? 

Treatment for Gynaecomastia varies depending on the severity of the condition. If it is mild to moderate, then certain lifestyle changes or taking supplements can correct the hormonal imbalances. However, if it does not respond to normal medication then surgery might be necessary. In general, Liposuction and Tissue excision are the two main procedures to treat Gynaecomastia. 

Liposuction: This procedure typically requires a small incision on each side of the chest and is performed under local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia. Now, a cosmetic surgeon will remove excess fat or glandular tissue through these incisions while sculpting a natural-looking chest contour. 

Tissue Excision: Patients with severe Gynaecomastia can be successfully treated with this method. Those with stretched, sagging skin around their breasts will also benefit from this approach. Tissue excision allows cosmetic surgeons to remove more glandular tissue than liposuction. 

How long does it take to recover from Gynaecomastia Surgery? 

The recovery time for Gynaecomastia surgery depends on the type of procedure that is done. Generally, the average recovery time is around 2 weeks for minor Gynaecomastia surgeries and 3-4 weeks for major surgeries. Following post-operative instructions without fail is the key factor for a successful outcome after surgery.
