Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the glandular tissue in the breasts of men and boys to become enlarged, leading to nipple tenderness or discomfort. This condition is usually the result of hormonal imbalances and typically takes place during adolescence, infancy and mid to late life. It often subsides on its own. However, some cases of gynecomastia are persistent and require treatment.
The factors that determine if a person should undergo gynecomastia treatment for men include his age, overall health, the extent of the condition, medical history and preferences. Others include future prognosis or expectations and tolerance to specific therapies such as surgical procedures and medications.
One of the ways to treat gynecomastia is through suction lipectomy. It is a type of liposuction that provides the surgeon with the capability to taper the edges of breast tissue without the patient having to experience unpleasant side effects. Gynecomastia liposuction is less invasive than the other surgical procedures used to treat this condition.
Another treatment for gynecomastia in men is endoscopic surgery. It is less invasive than open surgery. Surgeons perform it by inserting an endoscope into the skin in order to examine the inside of the breast. This method of surgery allows for the removal of breast tissue without having to make a big surgical incision.
In severe cases of gynecomastia, surgeons can perform an open surgical procedure. They make a moderate incision in the breast tissue and then remove the excess skin and tissue. Surgery is usually not recommended in adolescents until puberty is completed. The reason for this is that regrowth of the breast tissue can occur if the surgery is carried out before puberty is complete.
The extent of surgery is based on the severity of the condition and whether the excess fatty tissue is present. A combination of liposuction and surgical removal of the glandular tissue is often used to treat gynecomastia in men. Advances in cosmetic surgery techniques make it possible to treat the condition without leaving unpleasant scars on the chest.
