Gynecomastia is a condition that improves the sight of male breast tissue, which is called spell-based Gynecomastia. The word “Gynec,” (woman) and “mastos” (breasts), derived from Greek words. It is the third most common among men after a hair transplant and rhinoplasty surgery. Some studies found that 1 out of 3 men had gynecomastia.


  • What is the Cause of Gynecomastia?

During teenage years; breast growth is common for males since the body is hormonally complex. If not, Gynécomastia must happen temporarily. It is more likely that the young man would get gynecomastia if overweight.

The main causes for gynecomastia can be listed as follows:

    • Gaining weight and accumulation of fat in breasts
    • Hormonal disorders
    • Medications for heart, cancer and thyroid, antidepressants, cortisone.
    • Alcohol and drugs,
    • Some cancer types such as lung or liver cancer,
    • Thyroid gland disorders


  • How is Gynecomastia Classified?

It is classified according to the condition of gynecomastia.

Phase 1: Breast is not radically large, there is no sagging.

Phase 2: Breast is large, but there is no sagging.

Phase 3: Sagging occurs in the skin and excess skin removal is necessary.

Phase 4: Breast has the same characteristics of a female breast.


  • How is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?

If the condition is not serious, general liposuction anaesthesia can be used. It should be carried out under general anaesthesia when advanced gynecomastia is involved. It takes 50 to 90 minutes for the process.

Gynecomastia of the first and second phases can be easily treated with fat. If excessive skin removal is required, it must be removed with a small incision. In general, slender skin is not present in patients who do not lose as much weight and sport. After fat, it is extracted by a small incision under the nipple if the breast tissue below the skin is still high.

The 3rd and 4th phases include liposuction and removal of breast tissue. It is difficult to tighten and stretch the skin in elderly patients. If the patient has advanced gynecomastia, the skin will wane and excess skin will need to be taken away. After surgery, the breast tissue is removed, and the drain is installed in order to drain any remaining liquid and blood.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a medicine for gynecomastia?

No medications for the treatment of gynecomastia have been approved by the FDA; however, medicines used for the treatment of gynecomastia include: Testosterone replacement was successful in older men with low testosterone levels, but is not effective in men with high levels of male hormone.

Can gynecomastia go away with exercise?

Additional breast tissue creates it. The breast tissue in gynecomastia would not be decreased by performing exercise or losing weight. ‘Pseudo gynecomastia’ is a different disorder in which fat accumulates in the breasts, likely due to being obese or overweight.

Why doesn’t my gynecomastia go away?

Whether you experience gynecomastia during puberty, on your own or with natural therapies, it certainly won’t go away altogether. It’s also quite probable that your special case of gynecomastia has little to do with hormones. It has also been known that factors like tumours and malnutrition cause the disease.

Is gynecomastia bad for my health?

Gynecomastia is not a major concern in general, but it can be hard to live with the disease. Often, men and boys with gynecomastia have breast pain and can feel embarrassed. Gynecomastia can, on its own, go down. Medication or surgery may assist if it continues.

Can my breast get bigger again after a gynecomastia?

The revival of the region can be caused by significant weight gain or stimulated glandular tissue, which may thereby reverse the results of surgery. Breasts would not enlarge if there is an underlying condition such as tumours or hormone abnormalities, as a substantial portion of the breast tissue is extracted.
