Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the enlargement of breast tissue in males. Several factors can increase the risk of developing gynecomastia, including:
Hormonal Imbalances: Hormonal changes play a significant role in the development of gynecomastia. The following hormonal imbalances can increase the risk:
Age: Gynecomastia is more common in infants, adolescents during puberty, and older adults. Hormonal changes during these life stages can lead to breast tissue enlargement.
Obesity: Excess body fat can lead to an increase in estrogen production and a decrease in testosterone, increasing the risk of gynecomastia.
Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions can increase the risk of gynecomastia, including:
Substance Use: The use of certain substances can increase the risk of gynecomastia:
Family History: If you have a family history of gynecomastia, you may be at an increased risk due to potential genetic factors.
Nutritional Imbalances: Inadequate intake of certain nutrients, such as zinc and vitamins, may contribute to hormonal imbalances and increase the risk of gynecomastia.
Chronic Illness: Certain chronic illnesses, such as malnutrition or chronic kidney disease, can affect hormone production and increase the risk.
It’s essential to understand that gynecomastia risk factors can vary from person to person, and the presence of risk factors does not guarantee the development of the condition. If you are concerned about your risk of gynecomastia or are experiencing symptoms, consult with a healthcare provider for proper evaluation and guidance.
Diagnosing gynecomastia involves a combination of medical history assessment, physical examination, and, in some cases, additional tests. Here’s how gynecomastia is typically diagnosed:
Medical History Assessment:
Imaging Studies (if necessary):
Once the diagnosis is confirmed, the healthcare provider can determine the underlying cause of gynecomastia and recommend an appropriate treatment plan. Treatment options may include addressing the underlying hormonal imbalance, discontinuing medications that may be contributing to the condition, lifestyle changes, or surgical intervention (such as liposuction or mastectomy) in severe or persistent cases.
It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional if you suspect you have gynecomastia or notice any breast changes, as proper diagnosis and management are crucial to addressing the condition effectively.
Treatment for Gynecomastia involves Liposuction and Glandular excision. Liposuction helps to remove excess fat and shred the gland tissue. Then keyhole incision is made in the areola or lateral chest wall to remove glandular tissue.
We at Dr Prajwal’s Aesthetics use state-of-the-art technology like VASER Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction, and LASER Liposuction to get the best results.
Vaser Ultrasonic Liposuction is used to melt the fat selectively and tighten the skin. Power-Assisted Liposuction vibrates at the tip of the cannula to separate and remove the fat. Laser Liposuction is an energy-based device to remove fat and tighten the skin.
We offer various treatment options tailored to your needs:
Tissue Removal and Sculpting:
Areolar Adjustment (if necessary):

Recovery and Observation:
The results of gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction surgery, can vary depending on the individual’s unique circumstances, the surgical technique used, and the surgeon’s skill. However, in general, patients can expect the following outcomes after gynecomastia surgery:
Reduction in Breast Size: The primary goal of gynecomastia surgery is to reduce the size of enlarged male breasts. Patients typically experience a noticeable reduction in breast size, which can lead to a flatter and more masculine chest contour.
Improved Chest Appearance: Gynecomastia surgery can significantly improve the appearance of the chest, resulting in a more toned and aesthetically pleasing chest contour.
Enhanced Self-Esteem: Many patients report increased self-confidence and self-esteem after gynecomastia surgery, as they are no longer self-conscious about their chest appearance.
Symmetrical Chest: Surgery can help achieve a more symmetrical chest, addressing any imbalances between the left and right sides.
Scarring: The extent and visibility of scarring will depend on the surgical technique used. Surgeons often make incisions around the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) or in inconspicuous areas to minimize scarring. Over time, scars tend to fade and become less noticeable.
Recovery: Patients can expect some post-operative discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which typically subsides within a few weeks. Full recovery can take several months, during which time patients should follow their surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully.
Long-Lasting Results: The results of gynecomastia surgery are generally long-lasting, especially when the underlying cause of gynecomastia has been addressed. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and stable body weight can help ensure the longevity of the results.
It’s important to note that gynecomastia surgery is not without risks, and potential complications can include infection, bleeding, scarring issues, and asymmetry. The success of the surgery depends on various factors, including the surgeon’s expertise and the patient’s individual anatomy and healing process.
The recovery process after gynecomastia surgery can vary from person to person, depending on factors such as the surgical technique used, individual health, and the extent of the procedure. However, here’s a general overview of what you can expect during the recovery period:
Immediate Post-Op Period (1-2 Days):
First Few Weeks:
Months 2 and Beyond:
It’s crucial to closely follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions to promote proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. If you have any concerns or notice any unusual symptoms during your recovery, contact your surgeon promptly.
