Regaining Confidence After Gynecomastia: How-To Guide

September 29, 2020 by Dr. Sandeep Bhasin

Can you define the ideal chest in males? Have you ever thought about having the same? Here is an explanation of the ideal chest in males.

  • An ideal chest is not just a flat chest.
  • There should be a well-defined contour, a small bulge, and a fold under the chest from where the abdomen starts.
  • This fold under the chest should remain horizontal.
  • The nipple should be 5-6 cm above the chest fold facing forward
  • The areola should be flat with the surrounding skin.
  • Last but not the least, the contour of the pectoralis major muscle should be in relation to the chest fold. This muscle gives the muscular shape to the chest.
  • There might be a few breast tissues below the areola, which can be felt by squeezing it.

What if there is excessive breast tissue? Imagine the horizontal fold below the chest tends to round out and increase. What if the areola protrudes forward and becomes puffy? This condition is named gynecomastia.


What is Gynecomastia?

Both males and females have breast glands, but they will remain small and undeveloped in normal males. In the case of gynecomastia, the breast tissues swell and become abnormally large. Hormonal imbalance (secretion of excess estrogen and lack of testosterone) is the most common cause of gynecomastia. The other causes of enlarged male breasts include obesity, liver cirrhosis, overactive thyroid, and lung or liver cancer. Even the consumption of excessive drugs, anabolic steroids, and alcohol may lead to enlarged male breast disease. Don’t think that the extra fat deposition due to obesity leads to gynecomastia. It’s the additional breast tissue that stages gynecomastia.
There are varied grades of gynecomastia conditions:

  • Grade 1: Mild excess fat with no extra skin; nipples remain puffy
  • Grade 2: Moderate excess fat with no sagging or extra skin
  • Grade 3: Moderate excess fat with mild sagging and mild-to-moderate extra skin
  • Grade 4: Excessive fat and skin in the shape of the female breast; very low drooping breasts

Many a time, gynecomastia leads to a loss of self-confidence and emotional discomfort in males. Just consuming a balanced diet and performing weight loss exercises will not reduce your breast size.

In the following article, we are going to discuss some facts such as, what will be the solution to this problem. What is its process and what are the benefits of this process, etc? We are going to give information on the topics. Therefore, please read the facts given below.

Is There Any Solution to the Gynecomastia Problem?

In today’s time, you need not worry about this male breast enlargement issue. Medical science has made so much progress that there is a lot of treatment available for Enlarged Male Breasts in today’s time. But we will talk about the best enlarged male breast treatment for this disease. This condition can be cured by performing cosmetic surgery, which helps in reducing your breast size and giving a well-defined shape to your chest.

At times, you may notice a few centimeters of fat in the ideal chest also. This is supposed to be the natural part of the chest. Hence, it is not recommended to remove the entire fat. This is where liposuction proves to be the effective procedure to remove excess fat tissue by re-distributing the skin across the chest. Finally, you can see a uniform layer of fat covered over the pectoralis major muscle to provide the desired appearance.

Is Everyone Eligible for Gynecomastia Surgery?

There are varied conditions to become an eligible candidate for gynecomastia surgery:

  • The person should remain healthy
  • Above 18 years of age
  • Have normal body weight
  • Enlarged breast
  • No life-threatening diseases
  • No consumption of tobacco products

The Procedure of Gynecomastia Surgery

  • This gynecomastia surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the grade level.
  • The surgeon will first create an incision next to the armpit.
  • Next, he will insert the cannula in the incision, to cause back-and-forth motions. This movement loosens the fat from the surrounding tissue in the breast after which the fat is taken out.
  • Elastic skin accelerates the healing process since it allows the skin to conform to the recent contour of the reduced breast.
  • If elastic skin is absent, the surgeon requires additional surgery to skim off the skin.
  • After bandaging the incision, an elastic bandage or a support garment is wrapped around the operated part to hold new chest contours and avoid swelling.
  • A small thin drainage tube will be placed under the skin to remove the excess fluid.

Post-operative Considerations

  • The final outcome can be seen within 6-8 months, especially in the grade 4 case. Still, you can see a significant improvement within a month.
  • You are recommended to wear a compression garment for several weeks to hide the incisions
  • You can start doing light work after 3-5 days
  • You can resume your office job in 2 days
  • Avoid performing strenuous exercises for 4-6 weeks after the procedure for proper healing.
  • There will be repeated follow-up appointments to remove stitches. So, it’s better to take 1-2 weeks’ leave after the surgery.
  • You should quit smoking and alcohol consumption before and after the surgery.
  • You should stop consuming anti-inflammatory drugs before the surgery.
  • Disclose everything to your surgeon so that he will provide timely instructions accordingly.

There are no major side effects from performing gynecomastia surgery. Still, there are risks for redness, bleeding, swelling, pain, and bruising. Your surgeon will explain these risks in detail after evaluating your health condition.
