Gynecomastia surgery in Bangalore
Gynecomastia literally means “women-like breasts.” Gynecomastia is overly developed breast tissue in males. Though it is medically benign, Gynecomastia can cause significant psychological discomfort. Men with Gynecomastia may be viewed or view themselves as not completely masculine. In an attempt to disguise their shame or embarrassment, they sometimes attempt to hide this condition by avoiding exercise, swimming, and other activities. Although Gynecomastia cannot be resolved through diet and exercise programs
Gynecomastia is characterized by:
- Excess localized fat
- Excess glandular tissue development
- Sometimes excess breast skin
- Presence unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)
What is Gynecomastia surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size in men, flattening and enhancing the chest contours.
In severe cases of Gynecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In these cases, the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.
Plastic surgery to correct Gynecomastia is technically called reduction mammaplasty.
How should I prepare for Gynecomastia surgery?
In preparing for Gynecomastia surgery, you may be asked to:
- Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
- Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
- Stop smoking
- Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
The success and safety of your Gynecomastia procedure depend very much on your complete candidness during your consultation. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires, and lifestyle.
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 re positioned to a more natural male contour. Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preference.
Combination of liposuction & excision techniques
Sometimes Gynecomastia is treated with both liposuction and excision.
