What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction surgery, is a procedure aimed at correcting the condition of gynecomastia, where male breasts are enlarged due to excess glandular tissue, fat, or a combination of both. This condition can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly. The surgery is designed for men who feel self-conscious about their appearance or experience discomfort due to their enlarged breasts. It involves the removal of excess tissue to achieve a flatter, more traditionally masculine chest contour. Liposuction, excision, or a combination of both may be used depending on the nature of the gynecomastia.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia can be caused by various factors, including hormonal imbalances, obesity, the use of certain medications (such as steroids or medications affecting hormone levels), and underlying health conditions (like liver disease or tumors). It can also occur naturally during puberty, when hormone levels fluctuate, and in older age due to natural hormonal changes. While in many cases, the exact cause is not identifiable, understanding the underlying cause is crucial for determining the most appropriate treatment approach.

What is the Recovery Process Like?

Recovery from gynecomastia surgery varies by individual but generally involves a period of rest followed by a gradual return to normal activities. Immediately following the surgery, patients can expect some swelling and discomfort, which can be managed with medication prescribed by the surgeon. A compression garment may need to be worn for several weeks to support healing and shape the chest contour. Most patients can return to work within a week or two, depending on the nature of their job, but should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for at least 3-4 weeks. Full recovery and the final results can be appreciated after several months as the swelling fully subsides and the chest settles into its new shape.
