Male Breast / Gynaecomastia

Gynaecomastia or ‘Male Breast’ is the presence of glands in male chest area (in women such glands produce milk for breast feeding of baby after pregnancy). In the chest area some resistant fat may also get deposited giving the appearance of a female like breast.
 
Male Breast results from an imbalance between androgen (male hormone) and oestrogen (female hormone) activity. The hormonal imbalance that results in the deposition of glands in the chest areas is usually temporary and commonly occurs in boys at the time of puberty (14 yrs – 18yrs). Once the glands are laid down in the chest area, they do not regress. Male Breast does not develop due to obesity (becoming fat). That is why it cannot be treated by diet control or exercise. Also, since it is usually not due to any disease process, there are no medicines that can be given to treat this condition. Surgery is the only treatment.

Young Boys Need Surgery For Male Breast At An Early Age for the following reasons
 
Gynaecomastia or Male breasts can cause severe mental tension in boys leading
to:
   
 
  • Withdrawal from friends groups
  • Reluctance to expose themselves at swimming pools
  • Loss of interest in family group activities etc
  • Loss of focus on studies
  • Introvert personality development to the extent that some boys may go into depression
        as well
  • Rarely it may lead to suicidal tendencies

  •      Change in posture and walk
       
     
  • Boys start walking with drooping shoulders in an attempt to hide the chest bulge
  • They stop participating in outdoor sports activities like walks, running, tennis
  • Lack of confidence is very obvious in walk
  • They tend to sleep more on their belly
  •  
    There may be complete lack of interest in exercising in a gym or more often they indulge in heavy and vigorous exercises in a desperate attempt to ‘burn out’, what they think is ‘fat’ on the chest (almost always fat is minimal in male breasts of young boys. Mammary glands are predominant which will not respond to any amount of exercise or diet control). After few months they withdraw from gym exercises when such strenuous workouts show no effect on male breasts.
     
    Unnatural dress codes
       
     
  • Wear excessively loose clothes
  • Start wearing tight under garments. Some boys may start wearing tight clothes of their
       sisters under their regular clothing in an attempt to hide the male breast bulge

    SOME ADVICE AND INFORMATION FOR PARENTS OF BOYS SUFFERING FROM MALE BREASTS
       
    Boys are very secretive about their male breast problem.
    Almost always they will not share the knowledge of their problem with their parents
    Parents must know that the basic cause of male breasts is not obesity. Only the fat component of breast is increased when boys suffering from male breasts put on weight.
     
    Any amount of exercise for any number of years and even very strict diet control will not ‘cure’ this problem. It may reduce the size to some extent by reducing the fat from breast but, they should understand that problem is not from fat but, from the presence of mammary glands in the breasts.
     
     
    Parents’ insistence on exercise and diet control, although good for a healthy lifestyle, will not solve the problem. Rather, it may aggravate the already excessive mental stress.
     
    A surgery/operation is the only solution for Gynaecomastia /male breasts
    Liposuction alone for fat removal from breasts, will almost always fail to give a flat chest. A direct surgical removal of mammary glands is absolutely essential for best results.
     
    If necessary, even school going young boys in the age group of 13-15 years should be operated upon if they are showing personality problems as mentioned above
     
     
     
     
    CASE HISTORIES OF SOME YOUNG BOYS OPERATED UPON FOR YNAECOMASTIA / MALE BREASTS
     
    15 yrs old boy with large ‘sagging’ breasts had very large mammary glands. One fine morning he refused to go to school unless his problem was tackled. It became almost an emergency situation for the parents. There was complete transformation in his personality after the operation.

    This young boy had lost interest in studies and had started withdrawing from sports activities in school. He preferred to be left alone. These symptoms were very alarming and then the parents brought him for a consultation. He was operated upon. Very large size mammary glands and large volume of fat was removed. Operation brought about a remarkable positive change in his personality. He became very friendly and started enjoying group activities. His self confidence was restored.

    18 yrs old Medical College student: Before & After surgery: This young boy was admitted in a medical college and was living in a hostel. He often faced embarrassing situations and comments from his fellow students. Gradually this led to deterioration in his studies. After he was operated upon, he no longer faced embarrassing situations like before. His performance in class tests, viva and other examinations improved and he regained his lost self confidence.

    Male breast surgery involves Liposuction to remove fat and fat cells and Direct Dissection to remove the mammary glands by the "En-block" removal technique. It ensures complete removal of mammary glands. This technique was presented by Dr. JB Ratti, cosmetic surgeon at World Congress on Liposuction Surgery at Dubai in 2007. World Congress was organized by American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

    MAMMOPLASTY OR LIPOPLASTY (REMOVAL OF FAT & GLANDS FROM THE MALE BREAST) BY THE TUMESCENT TECHNIQUE IS THE BEST WAY OF DOING SURGERY FOR TREATING THIS CONDITION.

    The procedure is done entirely under TUMESCENT LOCAL ANAESTHESIA (only the chest area is made numb and you, while being fully awake, do not feel any pain during surgery). This makes the surgery extremely safe.
     
    The entire surgery is done through very minute cuts, placed in hidden areas, which are hardly noticeable after few months.
     
    Tumescent technique makes the surgery virtually BLOODLESS (no bleeding).
     
    Tumescent technique makes the surgery completely PAINLESS (no pain)
     
    You may go home immediately after surgery when it is done by the TUMESCENT TECHNIQUE
     
    Almost always no drainage tubes are required
    There will be early return to normal activities after surgery
     
       
    Male Breast cosmetic surgery is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure being done in men in our clinic. During consultation you will be shown many more such results. The consultations are held in complete privacy and preparations for surgery and the procedure itself can be scheduled as early as possible. As a matter of VITAL CLINIC policy, complete confidentiality is maintained regarding the identity and medical records of all our valued patients.
