Mammaplasty: Many men experience bodily changes during puberty as a result of an increase in hormones. One such change is an increase in the breast tissue known as Gynecomastia. Many times, it can be a temporary issue during teenage which resolves itself within a few months. However, it doesn’t go away in some men even after puberty.
In fact, in some men, Gynecomastia occurs in the later stages of life due to additional hormone or lifestyle changes. Moreover, irrespective of the cause, Gynecomastia surgery offers a probable solution for individuals who are not happy with the size of their breasts.
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is when male breast tissue swells or becomes enlarged. Men with Gynecomastia also experience tenderness along with changes in the color or position of the nipples. It occurs in both the breasts but might be worse on one side than the other. Though the condition is characterized by excess tissue and fat development, it can also lead to excess skin development. Finally, this leads to a saggy appearance.
The condition can be treated with breast reduction surgery. Also known as mammaplasty, the procedure reduces or removes some of the breast tissues. There are two types of Gynecomastia surgery:
- The liposuction method is used for mild cases of gynecomastia that are primarily caused due to excess fat buildup. Firstly, just like traditional liposuction in Ahmedabad, the surgery is performed via the insertion of a small tube which breaks the fat deposits and removes them with the help of suction.
- The excision technique is used for more extreme cases of Gynecomastia that need the removal of excess skin or require nipple adjustment.
What Causes Gynecomastia?
One of the main causes of Gynecomastia is hormonal changes which occur during the puberty. Other factors contributing to Gynecomastia are as follows:
- Weight gain
- Low testosterone
- Excess production of estrogen
- Alcohol use
- Kidney/ liver disease
- Heart disease medications
- Certain medications
