Thank you for your question and photo. If it is determined that you have glandular tissue, this will need to be removed surgically by excision. Fat can be removed via liposuction.
All the best,
Gynecomastia is characterized by enlarged breast tissue and
affects an astonishing 40 to 60% of men. Fortunately, the condition is easily
reversed with liposuction just by making a small incision under the nipple. It
is now possible to reduce the size of the breast using virtually scarless
technique. Through a small incision around the nipple Liposuction
with ultrasound and fine laser beams liquefy the fat and glandular tissue
recontouring the breast around the areola and from the sides and bottom of the
breasts. Because liposuction stimulates the skin to tighten, a smooth contour
after fat is removed is possible.
Thank you for your question.
As each case of #gynecomastia is different, it is vital that a #BoardCertified #PlasticSurgeon with experience in #male #breast #surgery is consulted. The
surgeon should determine if the patient is a suitable candidate for male breast
reduction by liposuction or glandular excision. It is crucial to have a plastic
surgeon who is well-versed in the gynecomastia condition can determine if there
is firm breast tissue beneath the areola that is causing the nipples to project
(which is often the case), and if so, how much of this glandular tissue can be
removed to create a flat appearance.
Gynecomastia refers to the enlargement of breast tissue in men. This enlargement can occur from many reasons including hormones, weight gain, medications, rare tumors, and idiopathic reasons. If the etiology of the breast enlargement is benign, a good treatment option is surgery. Since the breast enlargement is usually due to a combination of glandular breast tissue and fatty tissue, the best results are obtained with a combination of liposuction and direct excision of the breast tissue. I would suggest that you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss what options are best for you. Good luck!
Hi sunnik jha,
Thanks for the post. The best solution is to begin by seeing a plastic surgeon who specializes in gynecomastia surgery. Depending on whether you have excess fatty tissue, excess breast tissue, excess skin, and nipple position will determine the best technique. If you have excess breast tissue, liposuction will not be sufficient and you will need excision of the excess breast tissue.
Thank you for your question and photo.Several options are available; suctioning of the fatty tissue alone or in combination with excision of the firm non fatty tissue under the nipple/areola complex and if necessary excision of skin. Your photo shows a mild deformity possibly amenable to fatty tissue removal only with or without excision of non fatty tissue. The best approach would be determined at you consultation. I have found Smartlipo is a very effective treatment for your degree of deformity. This procedure can be performed in office with minimal recovery time.Best wishes.
Gynecomastia is usually due to excess glandular tissue behind the areola and fatty tissue in the breast. A combination of liposuction to address the fatty tissue and direct excision to address the glandular tissue is usually needed. In most cases this is performed as an outpatient. A postop drain is often required. Resumption of all activities is usually possible in 3-4 weeks. Best of luck.
Hi Sunnik Jha,
gynaecomastia is abnormal shape of male chest caused due to presence of glandular tissue with fat accumulated around it.
so a procedure which removes both is the best treatment method . liposuction with gland excision is the best treatment modality available. it is a day care surgery with very little problems
best of luck
The only treatment I am aware of is surgery. In our facility it is routinely treated under light sedation anesthesia on an outpatient basis using a tiny almost invisible incision inside the armpit removing both fat and Gland tissue if necessary. Make sure you're speaking to BCPS
Hello and thank you for your question. There are several different treatment options for men with gynecomastia. Typically both fat and glandular tissue need to be excised. Traditionally, glandular tissue had to be excised via a small incision, but now this can be done with minimally invasive devices such as the Bard Encor to avoid large incisions. The entire surgery can be performed through a few 5 mm incision. Good luck and make sure to consult with someone familiar with these techniques.
