Incidence of Gyno / Gynecomastia is very high. Almost 25-30% of boys suffer from this condition. It can be a very psychologically disturbing condition as boys are supposed to have flat, muscular chest. Breasts are not at all appropriate on boys’ chest.

How can one be sure that he has Gynecomastia?

Diagnosis of Gynecomastia is mostly by clinical examination by the surgeon. However, in rare cases some blood tests, X-ray or other investigations may be needed.

In some cases of Unilateral Gynecomastia, mammograms may be required.

Are there some other conditions that are like Gynecomastia?

The diagnosis of Gynecomastia is usually straightforward. However, the doctors at VITAL CLINIC will want to be sure that your Man breast swelling is Gynecomastia / Gyno or the Male breast enlargement because there are certain conditions which may appear like this. Most of these can be excluded by a physical examination by the doctors. Some may require further investigation.

Breast Abscess (mastitis)

Breast cancer

Fatty breast tissue

Are there medicines that may cure Gynecomastia?

Unfortunately, there are no medicines that can remove Gynecomastia. Some physicians prescribe drugs like Tamoxifen in the vain hope that it may reduce Gyno. But it never works.

Is surgery the only option for Gynecomastia?

Yes. Surgery remains the only option for removing mammary glands and curing Gynecomastia. Exercise and diet control can only reduce the fat component of breast and thereby reduce the size somewhat but, chest will never get flat until glands are removed.

Which is the best technique for Gynecomastia / Gyno /Man-boobs / Male breasts reduction?

Tumescent Awake Technique, totally under local anesthesia is the best way of performing this surgery. It has very high safety profile. Details about this technique are given elsewhere.

People Say

Sometimes male patients feel they have puffy nipples. Surgery removes the puffy nipples with minimal possible scar. The surgery is outpatient and avoids the large open incisions and scars including free nipple grafting scars that are typical of the traditional techniques. Most patients notice significant flattening of the chest as well as a shrinkage of the often dilated size of the areola. Special compression vests are utilized post-op for good healing. Patients need only a day off of work and can resume full working out and exercise in six weeks. Results are immediate but, improvement continues for about three months.
