Gynecomastia

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - General Surgery
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Mumbai

Can gynecomastia treated with diet and exercises?

First, diet and exercise are to be strongly recommended – they are great for your general health. But neither will do too much for your gynecomastia. Why?

Exercise: many times, men with gynecomastia have worked out to build up their chest muscles only to be disappointed in their contour. Actually, the excess gynecomastia tissue on the chest sits on top of the muscle and is therefore pushed further out as the muscle enlarges – thereby continuing to mask the muscle contour. It is only after appropriate surgery, when the excess tissues have been removed, that the skin will tighten spontaneously (oftentimes right on the operating table during surgery) and will then shrink down and reveal the nice contours of the underlying chest muscles.

Diet: if a man is overweight, there is predictably an excess of both fat and breast tissue on his chest. Should he lose a significant amount of weight, the fat component will diminish somewhat but the breast tissue will remain intact. Thus, his breast will become slightly smaller but so will the rest of his body and therefore the disparity of his chest to the rest of his body will remain. In fact, the breast tissue will persist and become even more compacted and prominent, since the intervening fat tissue has been lost.

What does surgical scar look like?

Every effort is made to minimize the scars for surgery. Usually a 4mm (1/6 inch) incision is made on the side of the chest just down from the armpit. This heals so well that, in time, it will resemble a small blemish rather than a scar. If an incision is made around the bottom edge of the areola, it tends to heal extremely well and, although permanent, is virtually undetectable in most patients.

Operative compliactions

Bleeding/seroma. Bleeding occurs during surgery but it is stopped by the surgeon before the operation is completed. No patient is allowed to leave the operating room if actively bleeding. Rarely after surgery, a blood vessel may open up and bleed – this is called a hematoma. This may happen within hours, days or even a week or two afterwards. A seroma is a collection of clear, yellowish fluid, which may also occur after surgery.

These are usually removed by syringe aspiration.

  • Infection: infection is exceedingly rare. Gynecomastia surgery is clean surgery and antibiotics are routinely used for prevention. Should it occur, appropriate medical care will take care of it.
  • Irregular contours: irregular contours, including the “crater” deformity (in which too much tissue is removed directly below the areola), are best treated by recognition and prevention.

Postoperative care?

A post-op compression garment, worn 24/7 for one month (minimum) after surgery, is absolutely essential for appropriate healing and for an excellent result. Atleast three followup postoperative is required postop day 2, postop day 15 and post op 3 months. Scars should be protected from sun exposure and scar treatment should be taken. Rest should br atleast post op 5 days. Exercises should be avoided for a month atleast.

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is an endocrine system disorder in which a noncancerous increase in the size of male breast tissue occurs. The classic feature of gynecomastia is male breast enlargement with soft, compressible, and mobile subcutaneous chest tissue palpated under the areola of the nipple in contrast to softer fatty tissue. This enlargement may occur on one side or both.

What causes gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is triggered by a decrease in the amount of the hormone testosterone compared with estrogen. The cause of this decrease can be conditions that block the effects of or reduce testosterone or a condition that increases your estrogen level. Gynecomastia can be caused by drugs, steroids or marijuana as well as other factors. These should be discontinued prior to surgery to minimize recurrence.

How to diagnose gynecomastia?

To diagnose gynecomastia, a thorough history and physical examination are obtained by a physician. Important aspects of the physical examination include evaluation of the male breast tissue with palpation to evaluate for breast cancer and pseudogynecomastia (male breast tissue enlargement solely due to excess fatty tissue), evaluation of penile size and development, evaluation of testicular development. Males with gynecomastia may appear anxious or stressed due to concerns about the possibility of having breast cancer.

Indications for surgery?

The most important question you should ask yourself is: does the condition bother you both psychologically and physically? should the answer be positive, you should consider surgery and start to gather information that will help you make an intelligent decision while consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon. Treatment of gynecomastia can help men reshape the male chest and dramatically improve the shape and proportion of your body, enhancing your appearance and your self-esteem.

Ideal age for surgery?

In general, I recommend you wait until the age of 18 years. There are some circumstances where a person should consider it earlier. For this you will have to consult a plastic surgeon

How do I choose a plastic surgeon?

Patient needs a extensive clinical examination prior surgery by the operating surgeon. There are lot of cosmetologist and qaucks proclaiming treating gynecomastia, you need to be evaluated completely by a board certified surgeon to know whether you need surgery or it needs conservative management. Surgery if required, is best done by a plastic surgeon.

Does gynecomastia has increased risk of cancer?

Any new lump, one-sided growth (asymmetry of the breast), skin changes of the breast or nipple, or bloody nipple discharge should be immediately investigated by a physician. A biopsy, a mammogram or a sonogram (ultrasound) examination may be advised.

What are the treatment options?

Treatment of the hormonal imbalance and stoppage of the inducing drugs may stop the progression of enlargement. Male breast reduction surgery for established gynecomastia is the only known and recognized treatment. Creams, lotions, massage, injections, exercise and “magic pills” all will do nothing for established gynecomastia. However, they will succeed in making your wallet slimmer.

What are the options for surgery?

Subcutaneous matectomy, suction assisted liposuction and in severe case a formal breast reduction is necessary. The procedure is done in daycare facility.

What are preoperative requirements?

A" cbc" or complete blood count, is required of all our surgical patients. For grs patients, a" pt/ptt" may possibly be requested if you have been using any type of aspirin-containing medications or certain types of vitamins/supplements. A preoperative triple h (hiv, hbsag and hcv) is required by operative theatres. For anesthesia fitness xray chest and serum creatinine is required.

ABDOMINOPLASTY AKA TUMMY TUCK

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - General Surgery
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Mumbai


Tummy tuck – is it safe?

It is safe if performed by a board certified plastic surgeon in a credentialed hospital or surgical center.

What does a typical abdominoplasty consultation is all about?

An abdominoplasty consultation involves talking with the surgeon and telling him or her what you want to achieve through tummy tuck surgery. The surgeon needs to also examine you before going ahead.

How is a tummy tuck surgery performed?

A full tummy tuck is usually performed under eneral anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision across the lower abdomen just above your pubic bone and pubic hair. This incision may go from hip to hip, but it is usually placed so that it will be hidden by a bikini bottom. Most frequently, excess skin and fat below the belly button is removed.In a full abdominoplasty, the fascia and rectus abdominus muscles are tightened by folding the fascia along the centerline. This tightens the muscles and abdominal wall. A new hole is made in the skin to suture around the belly button.Usually, one or two drains are placed under the skin under the incision to allow fluids to drain from the site for a few days. These drains are usually placed through small incisions above your pubic bone. The drains are plastic tubes that end in plastic bulbs that look sort of like grenades. 

What are the different techniques for abdominoplasty?

There are several different techniques for abdominoplasty, most of which differ in the amount of tissue that is removed and the shape and placement of the incision. Most abdominoplasty surgeons try to place incisions in the most inconspicuous area whenever they can, but sometimes this is not possible. Discuss this with your surgeon beforehand. 

What should I expect postoperatively?

You are usually able to walk after abdominoplasty surgery and you will be encouraged to do so. You should take a short walk three or four times a day for a few minutes each time. You will most likely not be able to stand completely straight and you may be a bit hunched over for several days. The skin of your abdomen may feel tight. You may be instructed to remain bent over a bit for the first 4 to 5 days after surgery. If drains have been inserted, they are usually removed 4 days to 2 weeks after tummy tuck surgery. You should take it easy for at least 2 weeks after surgery. Take it easy, but walk a bit every few hours every day. You will be told to wear an abdominal pressure garment for several weeks after your surgery to hold everything in place while you heal. This is a girdle or a band that fits around your abdomen and holds everything in place during healing.Some swelling and bruising are normal, but the amount varies from person to person. Recovery from tummy tuck surgery may vary depending on the person and the surgery type.

Is there much pain associated with abdominoplasty?

The amount of pain with an abdominoplasty is quite variable. Some people report a moderate amount of discomfort and some say it is more intense. But there will be some pain. Your surgeon can give you a prescription for pain relievers.

Where are the scars located in an abdominoplasty?

This is not a scar-free surgery. In fact, scars may be quite severe depending on 

1) the amount of skin needed to be removed, 
2) your body's ability to heal, 
3) whether you scar well,
4) the skill of your surgeon, and 
5) the technique used. 

Most surgeons try to use techniques that leave a scar that can be covered by a standard bikini. Be sure to discuss the tummy tuck incision types, techniques and placements with your surgeon at your consultation. Ideally, having no scar would be wonderful, but that isn't possible – yet.

Is there a lot of swelling involved with a abdominoplasty?

Yes, there will be some swelling after tummy tuck. Swelling should subside within in a few weeks.

When can I return back to work?

Abdominoplasty takes a long time to heal completely. While the drains are in, you should rest in bed or on a couch, but get up to walk frequently. You may be told to wear a compression garment, usually a girdle or a wide band of elastic material. You may be instructed to wear this for 6 to 12 weeks. Many patients can return to work after 2 weeks after tummy tuck surgery, but this depends on how extensive your surgery is and what you do for a living. In some cases, you may need to be off work 4 or more weeks.

When will I be able to see the results?

You will start to see a difference after the swelling subsides and the drains are taken out. A full abdominoplasty is considered a very invasive procedure. Give your body time to heal and you will reap the many benefits of the procedure. The final results take 3 months atleast to be visible.

What are the risks of abdominoplasty?

An abdominoplasty is serious surgery and you must understand there are some serious risks. As with any surgery with anesthesia, there are risks that primarily due to the anesthetic. Because skin, fat, and other tissue are being loosened and rearranged, they may be inadvertently detached from their blood supply. This can cause tissue death, which is also called necrosis. If a small amount of fat becomes necrotic, it tends to turn into orangey-clear liquid and may drain from the incision. To some extent, this is normal.But if other tissue becomes necrotic, or you have a larger amount of fat die, that's a different story. Necrotic tissue must be removed before a major infection develops, possibly leading to gangrene. This amount of necrosis rarely happens, but you should take precautions against it anyway. Not smoking and proper wound care make a big difference.Liposuction is done as part of the abdominoplasty. Liposuction carries its own set of risks. There may be asymmetry, hyperpigmentation (permanent dark spots) from the bruising. Major blood loss is a factor is some cases with liposuction, as is a hematoma (pocket of blood) and infection. Abdominoplasty or liposuction are not a way to lose weight.

Another rare risk of abdominoplasty is a pulmonary thromboembolus. Pulmonary thromboemboli can happen within 3 weeks after surgery, but if they occur, they will most likely happen within 72 hours. The symptoms are shortness of breath and fatigue, but pulmonary thromboemboli can occur suddenly, without warning.
Pulmonary thromboemboli are very rare. But the reason you have to get up and walk around as often as possible after your surgery is to reduce the risk of pulmonary thromboemboli, so no matter how sore you feel, just do it.

How long do the results of a tummy tuck last?

The results can last for many, many years. If you have no large weight gain or pregnancies after your tummy tuck, then the changes will be relatively permanent. There will be some relaxation of the tissues with age, but not to the extent prior to surgery.

This writeup is just a basic educational information, for detailed knowlegde kindly contact a board certified plastic surgeon

What is tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, flattens the stomach by removing excess skin and fat through a surgical cut while tightening separated ab muscles. The surgery is most commonly performed after pregnancy or weight loss in women and after weight loss in men, also known as a male tummy tuck.
A traditional tummy tuck involves two levels of treatment: a deep repair for separated muscles from excess weight or pregnancy, and a superficial removal of extra skin and fat, mostly in the lower stomach. Results are usually dramatic.

Am I a candidate for abdominoplasty?

First and foremost, you must be in 

1) good health 
2) not have any active diseases
3) serious pre-existing medical conditions. 
4) and lastly you have realistic expectations of the outcome of your surgery. 
Discuss your goals with your board certified surgeon to understanding about what can be achieved with tummy tuck surgery.
If you are a woman: you probably should wait until you are finished having children before having a tummy tuck, since the skin and muscles can get stretched out again. 
If you are considering losing weight: you should wait until after you've reached your desired weight. 
You may need additional surgery to remove the excess skin if you lose more weight, which would mean that the money spent on your abdominoplasty would be wasted.

What is the ideal age for abdominoplasty?

There is no" normal" age or time in one's life to have an abdominoplasty, but it is most often done after a woman has given birth and does not plan to have more children, or after someone has lost all the weight he or she intends to lose.
