Gynecomastia Surgery in Jaipur | Gynecomastia Surgeon
What is Gynecomastia?
In males, Gynecomastia involves an enlargement of the breast tissue, also called ‘Male Breast’ or ‘Man Boobs’. The breast gland tissue is usually deposed through fat deposition and proliferation. Depending on the situation, it can either be one-sided or both-sided. The only permanent solution to gynecomastia is Gynecomastia Surgery in Jaipur by Dr. Jagdeep Rao.
A condition called gynecomastia causes the breast tissue of a boy or man to swell. It can be caused by hormonal imbalances when two hormones are out of balance. Pseudogynecomastia is a different condition where you have large breasts due to fat deposits.
A small amount of breast tissue is present in all boys at birth, although they don’t develop like breasts in women.
Males’ bodies produce testosterone mostly during puberty, which guides their sexual growth. It is important to note, however, that males also produce estrogen, a hormone that influences female sexual development.
The balance of these two hormones changes when a boy enters puberty or when he has less testosterone in his body as he ages.
It is sometimes the case that when this occurs, the male breast tissue swells due to a higher concentration of estrogen. Approximately half of adolescents and two-thirds of men over 50 will experience this to some degree.
Symptoms of Gynecomastia
Initially, you may notice a lump of fatty tissue under your nipple when you have gynecomastia. There may be tenderness or soreness associated with this lump.
There is a small number of men who develop breast cancer, so you might be concerned that you have it. The presence of gynecomastia is not necessarily a sign of cancer, but your doctor may order some tests to determine whether it is.
In some cases, breast swelling occurs unevenly, with one breast growing larger than the other. It is also possible for you to feel tender in your breasts.
You can immediately come to the Dr. Jagdeep Rao if your breasts have swelling, are painful or tender, or there is a discharge from the nipple of one or both breasts. We assure to give proper care and medications for your disease.
Causes of Gynecomastia
Gynecomastia may be caused by several factors.
A hormonal imbalance between testosterone and estrogen can lead to gynecomastia. Testosterone inhibits estrogen’s ability to make breast tissue growth, while estrogen makes breast tissue grow.
Even though both males and females have testosterone and estrogen, testosterone tends to be higher in males and estrogen tends to be higher in females. As babies’ and young boys’ hormones fluctuate during development, they may develop gynecomastia. There is, however, a tendency for it to resolve itself on its own.
It is possible for males approaching old age to develop swollen breasts once more. Age and body fat can affect estrogen levels in older men. However, older men are less likely to produce testosterone and are more likely to have body fat than younger men.
In some cases, males develop the condition after using herbal products or medications, such as:
- Anabolic steroids
- Tricyclic antidepressants
- Medications for treating anxiety, such as diazepam
- Efavirenz, among other HIV medications
- Ulcer medications
- Calcium channel blockers, among others, are some drugs used to treat heart disease
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.
Who is the Right Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery is ideal for candidates who meet the following criteria:
- Those men who suffer from Gynecomastia (in its primary or secondary form).
- Men who are physically fit and healthy.
- Men who do not smoke.
- This surgery is suitable for men who have realistic expectations.
Due to the elasticity of young skin, this surgery is best suited for young patients.
Pre-Surgery Preparations For gynecomastia Surgery
The following may be asked of you in preparation for gynecomastia surgery:
- Make an appointment with a doctor or lab for testing
- Medications to be taken or medications to be adjusted
- Quit smoking
- It is not advised to take aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or herbal supplements because they can increase bleeding
Your gynecomastia procedure will succeed and be safe only if you are completely honest during your consultation. Several questions will be asked about your health, desires, and lifestyle.
An accredited office-based surgery facility, ambulatory surgical center, or hospital can perform male breast reduction surgery. After surgery, make sure someone drives you to and from the hospital and stays with you for at least one night for better care.
Post-Surgery Instructions For gynecomastia Surgery
In general, a candidate will need to spend around four to six weeks recovering after gynecomastia surgery. Each individual’s recovery pace and health condition will affect how long it takes to recover.
After surgery, Dr. Jagdeep Rao recommends total rest for the first four to five days. Candidates usually experience swelling, bruising, uneasiness, mild to moderate pain, tenderness or tightness in the treated area during the first few days after surgery.
As healing progresses, as well as with effective medication and postoperative care measures, all these side effects will disappear.
Even though the surgical results vary from one candidate to another, the quality of the postoperative measures matters a lot when it comes to achieving the best surgical outcome.
For a successful and speedy recovery without any unwanted complications, candidates should follow all post-operative directions and guidance given by the surgeon.
How is Gynecomastia Surgery done?
Under local anesthesia, Dr. Jagdeeo performs gynecomastia surgery using advanced laser liposuction paired with VASER liposuction. When combined with gland excision, it can be considered a permanent solution.
Fat and glandular tissue are removed by the surgeon after local anesthesia. A surgeon will then shape and contour a new, more masculine breast that will fit naturally into a man’s body. There are many plastic surgeries performed in Jaipur. We perform surgeries for you to get better health.
Recovery After Gynecomastia Surgery
Recovery from gynecomastia surgery can be challenging at times. Avoiding any kind of inconvenience to yourself requires you to recover properly. If you experience shortness of breath or an unusual heartbeat while recovering from gynecomastia surgery at home, you should immediately go to the hospital.
It is also common for the patient to experience some swelling during the recovery process. A feeling of abrasion is often experienced during recovery, which is normal.
