Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is an increase in the amount of mammary gland tissue in men or boys caused by an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone hormones. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly.

Newborns, teenage boys, and older men can develop gynecomastia as a result of normal changes in hormone levels, but there are other causes as well.

Usually gynecomastia is not a serious problem, but coping with the condition can be difficult. Boys and girls with gynecomastia sometimes may have chest pain and may feel embarrassed. Masculine man can be a mocked with because of the saggy large breast tissue.

Gynecomastia can go away on its own. If it persists, medication or surgery may help.

Grade 1-2 patients are usually treated with liposuction by Dr. Baris Cin, and grade 3-4 patients are usually treated with open surgery.

Symptoms

Gynecomastia can be a side effect of certain medications, such as antidepressants, antibiotics, chemotherapy, prostate cancer drugs, ulcer or cardiovascular drugs. Illegal drugs and anabolic drugs such as anabolic steroids, heroin or marijuana can also cause gynecomastia. Dr Baris Cin does not routinely test for these medications, but if the patient gives a history suggesting underlying cause, Dr. Baris might ask for hormon tests or other tests such as surrenal ultrasonography to assess the patients, which may be associated with increased costs. 

Certain diseases and medical conditions can also cause gynecomastia. These include:

Liver diseases Kidney disease Lung cancer Testicular cancer Tumors of the adrenal glands or pituitary gland Some conditions in which a baby is born (congenital disorders) Thyroid disorders Injury or trauma obesity Newborn babies may have a short-term form of gynecomastia. This is usually because the mother’s estrogen stays in the baby’s blood for some time after birth.

Gynecomastia is not linked to breast cancer. It is rare for men to get breast cancer. However, your provider may do some tests to rule out breast cancer.
