All you should know about Gynecomastia surgery

What is Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts)?

Gynecomastia is enlargement of the glandular tissue of the male breast. During infancy, puberty, and in middle-aged to older men, gynecomastia can be common. Gynecomastia must be distinguished from pseudogynecomastia or lipomastia, which refers to the presence of fat deposits in the breast area of obese men. In fact, Gynecomastia is an enlargement or swelling of breast tissue in males. It can affect one or both breasts.

Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to help reshape and improve contour of the male chest for a flatter, toned appearance— by removing excess fat, breast tissue and, sometimes, excess skin from the chest.

Gynecomastia is characterized by:

. Excess localized fat

. Excess glandular tissue development

. Sometimes excess breast skin

. Presence unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)

Before gynecomastia surgery

Before undergoing surgery, it is important that you:

. Be as fit as possible to help the recovery process

. Reach your optimal weight

. Check with your surgeon about your medications as some may need to be stopped

. Stop smoking

You will also be asked to provide a complete medical history for your Specialist Plastic Surgeon including any health problems you have had, any medication you are taking or have taken, and any allergies you may have.

You may be advised to stop taking certain medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aspirin, and medicines that contain aspirin. You may also be asked to stop taking naturopathic substances such as garlic, ginkgo, ginseng and St John’s Wort as they may affect clotting and anaesthesia. Always tell your surgeon everything you are taking.

You may be given medicines to take before the surgery, such as antibiotics.

Your surgeon will also advise you if any other tests are required, such as blood tests, X-ray examinations or an Electrocardiograph (ECG) to assess your heart

Prepare a “recovery area” in your home. This may include pillows, ice packs, a thermometer and a telephone within easy reach. Make sure you arrange for a relative or friend to drive you to and from the hospital or clinic. Someone should also stay with you for at least 24 hours after you return home.

Your surgeon should give detailed preoperative instructions. Follow them carefully.

What are the signs and symptoms of gynecomastia?

. The primary symptom of gynecomastia is enlargement of the male breasts. As mentioned before, gynecomastia is the enlargement of glandular tissue rather than fatty tissue. It is typically symmetrical in location with regard to the nipple and may have a rubbery or firm feel. Gynecomastia usually occurs on both sides but can be unilateral in some cases. The enlargement may be greater on one side even if both sides are involved. Tenderness and sensitivity may be present, although there is typically no severe pain.

. The areola, the area of pigmented skin that surrounds the nipple, may increase in diameter, and the chest tissue may appear asymmetrical.

If there is unusual and persistent swelling, tenderness, pain, or nipple discharge, or a combination of these, it is important to see a physician.

The most important distinction with gynecomastia is differentiation from male breast cancer, which accounts for about 1% of overall cases of breast cancer. Usually, cancer is confined to one side, is not necessarily centered around the nipple, feels hard or firm, and can be associated with dimpling of the skin, retraction of the nipple, nipple discharge, and enlargement of the underarm (axillary) lymph nodes.

Causes of gynecomastia

A number of factors can lead to gynecomastia.

. Gynecomastia can stem from an imbalance between the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen. Estrogen, the “female” hormone, makes breast tissue grow, while testosterone, the “male” hormone, stops estrogen from making breast tissue grow.

. All males and females have both testosterone and estrogen, but testosterone occurs in higher proportions in males, while females have higher levels of estrogen.

. According to the American Family Physician, up to 1 in 9 newborn males have palpable breast tissue. This is because they have derived high levels of estrogen from the mother. As estrogen levels return to normal, the swelling goes away, usually within weeks.

. Swollen breasts become more common among males as they approach middle and older age. Older men produce less testosterone, and they usually have more fat than younger men. This, too, can result in a higher production of estrogen.

Risk factors may include:

. Kidney or liver disease

. Alcohol abuse

. Radiation treatment of the testicles

. Klinefelter’s syndrome

. Tumors of the testes, adrenal or pituitary gland

. Hyperthyroidism and hormonally active tumors.

Between 10 percent and 20 percent of cases are thought to stem from the use of medication or herbal products, and 25 percent occur for unknown reasons.

Researchers have suggested a possible link between gynecomastia and a number of illegal drugs.

Medications that can cause the breasts in men to enlarge include:

. Anabolic steroids

. Some antibiotics

. Some ulcer medications

. Chemotherapy

. Tricyclic anti-depressants

. Diazepam (Valium) and some other drugs for treating anxiety

. Some HIV medications, including efavirenz, also known as Sustiva

. Anti-androgens, commonly prescribed for patients with cancer or prostate enlargement

. Some heart drugs, including calcium channel blockers and digoxin.

Tea tree oil and lavender products, used in creams and shampoos, may have an effect.

However, one meta-analysis notes that many of these claims are supported by poor quality evidence.

What diseases and conditions cause gynecomastia?

A number of medical conditions may also result in gynecomastia:

. Malnutrition and re-feeding (recovery from malnutrition) have both been shown to create a hormonal environment that may lead to gynecomastia. Similarly, cirrhosis of the liver alters normal hormone metabolism and may lead to gynecomastia.

. Disorders of the male sex organs (testes) can result in decreased testosterone production and relatively high estrogen levels, leading to gynecomastia. These disorders may be genetic, such as Klinefelter’s syndrome or acquired due to trauma, infection, reduced blood flow, or aging. Testicular cancers may also secrete hormones that cause gynecomastia.

. Other conditions that are associated with an altered hormonal environment in the body and may be associated with gynecomastia are chronic renal failure and hyperthyroidism. Rarely, cancers other than testicular tumors may produce hormones that can cause gynecomastia.

What drugs are used for the treatment of gynecomastia?

. Gynecomastia, especially in pubertal males, often goes away on its own within about six months, so observation is preferred over specific treatment in many cases. Stopping medications and treatment of existing medical problems or health conditions that cause enlarged breasts in men also are mainstays of treatment.

. Medical treatments are available to treat gynecomastia, but data on their effectiveness are limited. No drugs have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of gynecomastia; however, medications that have been used to treat the condition include:

. Testosterone replacement has been effective in older men with low levels of testosterone, but it is not effective for men who have normal levels of the male hormone.

. Clomiphene can be used to treat gynecomastia. It can be taken for up to 6 months.

. The selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) tamoxifen (Nolvadex) has been shown to reduce breast volume in gynecomastia, but it was not able to entirely eliminate all of the breast tissue. This type of therapy often is most used for severe or painful gynecomastia.

. Danazol is a synthetic derivative of testosterone that decreases estrogen synthesis by the testes. It works by inhibition of pituitary secretion of LH and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), substances that direct the sex organs to produce hormones. It is less commonly used to treat gynecomastia than other medications.

What about surgery for the treatment of gynecomastia? Can it be cured?

Medications are more effective in reducing gynecomastia in the early stages, since scarring often occurs after about 12 months. After the tissue has become scarred, medications are not likely to be effective, and surgical removal is the only possible treatment.

Reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction surgery) has been used in severe cases of the condition, long-term gynecomastia, or in cases in which drug therapies have not been effective to help restore a normal breast appearance.

Typically, gynecomastia is not associated with long-term problems.

What are the benefits of a gynecomastia surgery?

The benefits of gynecomastia surgery are that it will restore a naturally masculine appearance to your chest. With a firmer, flatter and better shaped chest, men often feel more confident with increased self-esteem and are able to wear more fitted tops and reveal their chests when they want.

Gynecomastia surgery is typically a short procedure with a quick recovery and virtually invisible scars.

Who is a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery? 

Surgery for gynecomastia is a highly individualized procedure and may not be suitable for everyone. Always talk to your Specialist Plastic Surgeon before making a decision. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will assess your condition and general health, and plan the treatment that is best suited to you.

Before you decide on breast reduction surgery, there are some important issues to keep in mind:

. Any surgical treatment to correct gynecomastia will require incisions. While most incisions are hidden in natural contours or in the areolae of the breasts, some scars may be visible and an unavoidable result of any breast reduction surgery.

. Surgeons generally recommend waiting until breasts are fully developed. Younger men or adolescent boys may be advised to wait a number of years after the onset of gynaecomastia before surgery.

. Breast reduction surgery is not recommended for overweight men who have not tried proven weight-loss techniques such as diet and exercise.

. If gynaecomastia has resulted from the use of alcohol, certain prescription medications or drugs including steroids, you must be fully free of these substances before undergoing surgery.

. You must remain at a stable weight in order to maintain the results of your surgery.

Breast reduction may be a good option for you if:

. Alternative medical treatments are ineffective in treating the condition

. You are self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts

. You experience discomfort as the breast tissue is tender and sore

. You are physically healthy

. You have realistic expectations

. Your breasts are fully developed

. You are not a smoker or a drug user

Risks and Complications

Modern surgery is generally safe but does have the potential for risks and complications to occur.

Some general complications and risks associated with surgery may include:

. Risks of anaesthesia including allergic reaction or potentially fatal cardiovascular complications such as heart attack.

. A blood clot in the deep veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis), which can move to the lungs (pulmonary embolus) or to the brain and may be life threatening.

. Allergic reaction to suture materials, tape adhesive or other medical materials and lotions.

. Excessive bleeding

Some potential complications and risks associated with surgery for gynaecomastia may include:

. Slightly mismatched breasts or nipples

. Temporary numbness or loss of breast sensation

. Recurrence of breast growth after surgery can occur if breasts are not fully developed.

. Another procedure may be needed to remove excess skin

. Permanent pigment changes in the breast area

. Keloids and hypertrophic scars that are raised, red and thickened scars. These may form over the healed incisions. They may be itchy, annoying and unsightly but are not a threat to health.

During gynecomastia surgery

What are the steps of a gynecomastia procedure?

A gynecomastia procedure includes the following steps:

1. Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedures. The options include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best option for you.

2. Liposuction technique

In cases where gynecomastia is primarily the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction techniques alone may be used. This requires insertion of a cannula, a thin hollow tube, through several small incisions.

The cannula is moved back and forth in a controlled motion to loosen the excess fat, which is then removed from the body by vacuum suction.

There are various liposuction techniques that may be used; the technique most appropriate in your case will be defined prior to your procedure.

3. Excision technique

Excision techniques are recommended where glandular breast tissue or excess skin must be removed to correct gynecomastia. Excision also is necessary if the areola will be reduced or the nipple will be repositioned to a more natural male contour. Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preference.

4. Combination of liposuction & excision techniques

Sometimes gynecomastia is treated with both liposuction and excision.

General anesthesia is commonly administered in male breast reduction procedure and the average surgery time is between 1 and 1.5 hours.

After Gynecomastia surgery

Recovery and aftercare

. While you are healing, you may experience some pain, bruising, swelling and numbness around the operated site. This is normal. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will prescribe pain relief as needed. If you have any problems or concerns, be sure to tell your surgeon. Any scars will also lessen over time.

. After surgery, you will wear an elastic dressing or surgical bra to provide support for your breast. (You may be required to wear a supporting garment for up to six weeks to support your breasts and compress your chest.) A plastic tube may be inserted into each breast to drain excess fluid. Other dressings may be changed or removed at this time.

. Depending on the extent of your procedure, you may need to take a few days off work to rest.

. Avoid stretching, strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for about 3 weeks after the operation. It will take about 6 weeks until you can return fully to your normal activities.

. You may go home the same day or stay overnight in hospital depending on the amount of fat and breast gland being removed.

. Most patients will return to work, a week after their gynecomastia surgery.

. How long you need to keep the dressings on will depend on how quickly your wounds heal. After 1 to 2 weeks, your stitches will either dissolve or be removed.

. You can drive again when it’s no longer painful to wear a seatbelt, which may be several weeks after the operation.

. It can take up to 6 months to see the full results of your surgery.


Most men just have a scar around their nipples. But a large breast reduction may also result in a vertical scar and a horizontal scar across the breast crease (an anchor-shaped scar).

Your scars may take several months to fade.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, notify your surgeon immediately:

. Temperature higher than 38ºC or chills

. Nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath or diarrhea

. Heavy bleeding from the incisions

. Leakage of blood or fluid beyond the first day after surgery

. Worsening and/or spreading redness around the incision sites

. Increasing pain or tenderness in either breast

. Any other concerns or problems regarding your surgery, particularly if it appears to be worsening

Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on post-operative care. These instructions may include:

. How to care for your surgical site(s) following surgery

. Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection

. Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site(s) or in your general health

. When to follow-up with your surgeon

      The main difference between the Gynecomastia and Pseudogynecomastia (chest fat) is the mass that’s causing the swelling. By considering the following differences you can figure out whether you have gynecomastia or just chest fat.

      Gynecomastia is:

      ● Due to excess breast tissue/glandular tissue growth.

      ● The underlying matter is tissue which is firm,irregular and sometimes even painful to touch.

      ● Hard lump under the nipple but can also extend outside the borders of the areola depends on how much fat there is.

      ● Gynecomastia can only be reduced surgically.

      ● Visibility depends on the grade. It may be difficult to differentiate if it is mixed gland and fat causing the swelling.

      while Chest Fat (Pseudogynecomastia) is:

      ● The increased chest mass is due to deposition of fat in the area surrounding the nipples.

      ● The underlying matter is accumulated fat in the chest area which is soft and always painless.

      ● A soft lump under the the entire breast. It primarily occurs in overweight or obese person.

      ● Pseudogynecomastia if not severe may be reduced by diet and exercise.
      regarding the second part of your question I should say the cost of gynecomastia surgery is something between $ 1300-1800.
