                     Male Breast Reduction Surgery/Gynacomastia Correction Surgery

We Are Proud To Announce That in Less Than Two Years We Have Successfully Carried Out More Than One Hundred Gynecomastia Surgeries.

Male Breast’ or Gynecomastia appears, mostly, in boys at the age of puberty or adolescence and continues to persist. The main reason for this appearance is due to enlargement of mammary gland in males. Deposition of some resistant fat over the chest also produces a breast like appearance in males. Underlying reason for this cause is the imbalance of sex hormones. It is very common to find an enlargement of the gland at the time of puberty due to change of hormonal balance but later it is corrected in most cases by the biological process. When this does not take place the outcome is called the male breast enlargement, clinically defined as gynecomastia. It is to be remembered that gynecomastia is not restricted to the boys at the age of puberty but can also be observed, though rarely, in elderly too. This is also due to hormonal imbalance that takes place due to several reasons.

This point should be emphasized that the cause of male breast formation is not only due to fat deposition but also to enlargement of the mammary gland. So neither diet control nor exercise can alleviate the problem. Sometimes, people with obstinate fat over the breast area also look like suffering from Gynecomastia. As male breast formation is not a disease but a physical abnormality due to hormonal imbalance, there is no medicine to treat the condition, gynecomastia correction surgery (male breast reduction surgery) is the only available procedure to get rid of this abnormality.

  Classification of Gynecomastia

Webster classified gynecomastia into 3 types: glandular, fatty glandular and simple fatty.

Simon classified gynecomastia into the following groups:

I: minor but visible breast enlargement without skin redundancy;

IIa-moderate breast enlargement without skin redundancy;

IIb-moderate breast enlargement with minor skin redundancy;

III-gross breast enlargement with skin redundancy so as to simulate a pendulous female breast.

 Groups I and IIa can be dealt with simple excision but the latter 2 groups require skin resection in addition to removal of the male breast tissue.

Gynecomastia correction surgery

Clinically the surgical procedure to get rid of gynecomastia is called reduction mammaplasty, what reduces, in female, the size and shape of the breast and in male it flattens the breast like appearance and gives a proper chest contour. In severe cases, excess fat, glandular tissue and skin need to be removed just like female breast reduction surgery. The combined process of removal of fat and breast tissue is known as liposuction followed by subcutaneous mastectomy which provides a very aesthetically pleasing look.

   Requirement of Anesthesia For Male Breast reduction Surgery

Depending on the severity, local or general anesthesia (preferred) is required and the option depends on the discretion of the concerned surgeon.

Dr. Adhikari prefers performing the procedure as an outpatient one; therefore there is no need to be admitted for surgery! You come to the hospital, get operated and can leave immediately following the surgical procedure. Drains would be left in place and they would be removed after 2-3 days. You may or may not use a compression garment after surgery. This method of performing the surgery under local anesthesia ensures prompt patient recovery and patients can get back to work the next day!!

  Application Of Liposuction For Gynecomastia Correction

In cases when gynecomastia or male breast development is due to deposition of excess fat, liposuction method alone can be applied to get rid of the problem, however, a subcutaneous mastectomy is nearly always indicated to prevent recurrence in later years. There are various liposuction processes; the surgeon is the only person who will select the proper one to be applied.
