Male Breast: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Gynacomastia is the enlargement of the gland tissue of the male breast. It can affect men who are middle aged or even older and even strike during infancy or puberty. This condition occurs due to the growth of the grandular or breast tissue, which is actually present in small quantities in men. It is caused due to the imbalance of testosterone or estrogen hormones and can affect one or both the breasts. This is not a very serious problem but men with male breasts may experience some pain.

The symptoms that may be associated with gynacomastia are swollen breast gland tissue and tenderness of the breast. Male breasts can develop as part of the normal development process and can affect a normal pubertal male. However, other factors that may influence the onset of this condition are: aging, as the production of testosterone decreases with age, as a side-effect of some other disease or condition and as a reaction to some other medication.

There is no such treatment required for physiologic gynacomastia. In most of the patients, pubertal gynacomastia gets resolved within a few weeks to a couple of years. When gynacomastia occurs due to hypogonadism, parenteral or transdermal testosterone therapy is done. A patient will have to undergo medical or surgical treatment if they are suffering from idiopathic gynacomastia or residual gynacomastia. Pharmocologic therapy requires the use of some drugs. Breast surgery is recommended for those who suffer from long-standing gynacomastia or those who have not benefitted from medical treatment.

How is the treatment done?

Reduction mammoplasty is done to surgically reduce the size of male breasts. The chest is flattened by reducing the size of the breasts and this helps to improve the shape of the male chest. The location and size of the areola can also be adjusted if the breast tissues are extremely heavy causing the areola to sag. On the other hand, liposuction is done if male breasts appear due to too much fat. In this procedure, a narrow canula is used to suction off the excess fat. Excision technique is utilized if excess skin and grandular tissues are to be removed.

Other than surgical interventions, some medications can also help to deal with male breasts. Testosterone replacement medications can help older men to reduce their male breasts. Clomiphone is another drug used to treat gynecomastia. Tamoxifen which is a selective estrogen receptor modulator helps to reduce the size of male breasts. This medication is mostly used to treat painful or severe disorders. Danazol is a drug which is not used as commonly as other drugs to treat gynecomastia. However, it is a synthetic derivative of testosterone and it helps to regulate the production of sex hormones.

However, it has to be kept in mind that medications help to curtail gynecomastia only in the initial stages of the treatment. Scarring of the tissues occurs after about 12 months and medications do not produce any beneficial effects after the 12 months. In this scenario, surgical intervention is required.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

A man is eligible for surgery to treat gynecomastia if he feels that his breasts are too large and alternative medical therapies are not helping them to successfully address the condition. Some of the prerequisites for this surgery include: a man should be healthy and be of average weight, he does not suffer from any other medical conditions or takes medications that may interfere with this treatment and he has stabilized breast growth. Testosterone replacement therapy may be good for older men but it may cause further enlargement of breasts in men with healthy levels of testosterone.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

A person who is not too old and has healthy amounts of testosterone are not eligible for testosterone therapy. A person suffering from any other medical condition for which he is receiving treatment should consult his doctor before going for gynecomastia surgery. An unhealthy person is also not eligible for any surgical intervention.

Are there any side effects?

Some of the side-effects associated with testosterone replacement therapy are acne or oily skin, stimulation of prostate tissue resulting in increased urinary symptoms like decreased stream or frequency, increased risk of blood clots, occurrence of sleep apnea, reduction of size of testicles, mood swings and increased risks of heart attacks and strokes. Sometimes, testosterone replacement surgery can cause breasts to get enlarged in people with normal levels of testosterone.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

A person undergoing testosterone replacement therapy needs to go for regular check-ups and adhere strictly to the guidelines recommended by the doctor. A person should take proper rest for at least 3 days after the gynecomastia surgery. Movement of the limbs is also restricted in some cases. A person can resume normal physical activities only after 3 weeks. After the surgery, direct exposure to sunlight should be avoided till the bruising and swelling subsides. Consumption of alcohol and other drugs should be completely halted till a few days after the surgery.

How long does it take to recover?

A person undergoing reduction mammoplasty will have to take a break for about 1 month to recover from the effects of the surgery. A person will feel tired and may also experience some pain due to bruising and swelling. It will take about 4-6 weeks for these effects to subside. A person undergoing testosterone replacement therapy will experience the beneficial effects within 4-6 weeks in most cases. However, the entire treatment may take a lot of time and the duration varies from person to person.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

Gynecomastia surgery in Indian generally costs something around Rs 60000. It can vary according to the procedure used and also according to which surgeon is performing the surgery. Clomifone may cost between Rs 650 – Rs 6500 depending on the duration of the treatment cycle. Tamoxifen medication for 1 month also costs around Rs 6500. Testosterone injections are available for Rs 5000 per injection approximately.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

The effects of breast reduction surgery in males are deemed permanent. However, a man may again develop a larger breast if he gains weight or due to the effect of some other medications. Medications used for breast reduction normally help to deal with the external manifestations but do little to address the underlying causes. Therefore, their effects are not permanent as a person may again develop larger breasts once he is stops taking the medication.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Breast reduction can be done by men by reducing their body weight. A couple of cups of green tea every day helps in this aspect due to it is a natural anti-oxidant. Turmeric boosts the levelof testosterone and so helps to address gynecomastia. Milk thistle contains silymarin and so helps to cure gynecomastia. Other treatments may include consumption of hot water and dandelion leaves, consumption of ginger root tea and taking a bath in water mixed with Epsom salt.

Although the breasts are one of the most significant contributors of a woman’s physical beauty, a man with breasts not only looks awkward but feels clumsy and graceless as well. An individual who is suffering from such problems which are referred to as gynecomastia in medical terms, should not neglect the problem but consider opting for male breast reduction surgery. In this surgical intervention, a qualified doctor would help in restoring your natural masculine looks around the chest. And there is nothing to be anxious about as there are advanced techniques which would help you recover quickly and result in virtually invisible scars.

Gynecomastia can happen at any age, and the male breast reduction surgery can be safely performed on both teenagers and adult men.,

Enlarged Breasts In Men - Surgery At Your Rescue!

Most men, about 60%, see some development of breast tissue in their lifetime. This growth could be round, symmetrical and occurs bilaterally. This growth of breast tissue in males is medically known as gynecomastia.


  • The most common cause is an imbalance between the oestrogen and androgens, with excessive oestrogens leading to the growth of breast tissue.
  • Excessive use of anabolic steroids
  • Obesity
  • Unknown reasons

It can affect men of all ages, and if this presents as a serious problem, then surgery is the most definitive form of treatment.

Surgical options: There are two major options available for correcting gynecomastia – liposuction and excisive surgery.


  • Done either under local sedation or under general anaesthesia depending on the extent of the tissue proliferation
  • A small incision is made either in the armpit or around the areola
  • Excessive fat tissue and breast gland tissue are suctioned out
  • The chest contour also is altered at the same time, if desirable
  • Post-surgery, the person is made to wear a compression garment for the first few days
  • This helps in keeping the tissue in place and also helps reduce swelling
  • Healing takes about a couple of weeks’ time, depending on the person’s overall health status and the extent of surgery.

Excisive surgery:

  • This is done when the extent of gynecomastia is more severe
  • These people would have sagging, stretched skin around the breast area
  • More amount of fat and glandular tissue can be removed through excision
  • This is more often done under general anaesthesia
  • The incision is often done around the areala (dark portion around the nipple) so it is concealed or along the natural creases which are formed due to excessive breast tissue
  • Excessive breast tissue is removed and the incisions are closed
  • There could be swelling, pain, bruising and higher chances of post-surgical infections
  • Recovery will take about ten days to two weeks
  • Refraining from exercise is often advised for up to 2 weeks


  • Restore a masculine appearance
  • Shorter surgery
  • Faster recovery
  • Minimal or invisible scars
  • Almost immediate results that can be dramatic
  • Improved confidence and self-image

After the surgery:

  • Surgery is definitely a sure way to remove the male breast tissue, it is almost a permanent treatment for this condition.
  • It is very important to get a trained, experienced surgeon for the procedure
  • It is important to follow post-op instructions including pain management, infection control, and recovery
  • If it was caused by use of steroids or obesity, lifestyle modification is essential to prevent recurrence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.

Enlarged Male Breast Problem - Is Surgery Helpful?

The development of breasts is one of the most prominent physical difference between the structure of a man and a woman. In some cases, hormonal imbalances can cause enlargement of the male breast gland, which is known as gynecomastia.  Apart from being a cause for embarrassment, it is also associated with a number of medical conditions such as kidney failure and liver cirrhosis. However, there is little need to worry if you have been diagnosed with such a condition as it can easily be treated with dietary changes, medication and surgery. Among these, surgery is the only method of treatment that guarantees a permanent and immediate solution to the problem. 

Surgical treatment for gynecomastia is of two types

The type of surgery suitable for you will depend on a number of factors including the extent and type of gynecomastia.

Liposuction involves the removal of fat from the breast, but does not touch the breast tissue itself. For this surgery, a surgeon makes a small incision on either side of the chest or along the edge of the areola. Excessive fat is then removed through these incisions and the skin and remaining tissue is then restructured. Liposuction can take anywhere between a week and 3 weeks for complete recovery. In the meanwhile, the patient must wear a compression garment to minimize the swelling and support the chest tissue as it heals. 

A mastectomy on the other hand is used to remove the breast tissue. A mastectomy is performed endoscopically and hence is less invasive. In this case, the incisions are located around the edge of the areola or in the natural crease of the chest. A mastectomy requires a shorter recovery period. In some cases, a combination of the two techniques may also be used. 

The results of both surgical approaches can be seen immediately after the surgery. Slight soreness and pain is a common side effect of this procedure and can be relieved with pain medication. Some men may also experience a temporary loss of sensation over the treated area. 

Though the results of both types of surgeries are permanent, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the surgery. Unhealthy eating that leads to significant weight gain can make the problem recur. Use of steroids or medication that affects the testosterone levels in the body and certain medical conditions can also lead to recurring gynecomastia. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cosmetic physician.

Gynecomastia - What You Need To Know About It!

Gynecomastia - What You Need To Know About It!

Do you know that enlarged breasts, which are observed in many men are caused because of a health condition? This is known as gynecomastia and involves enlargement of the breast tissues in men. The condition is commonly called man boobs. It is usually not something serious and is not always permanent.

During the puberty stage, gynecomastia is quite common and normal. It occurs because of natural changes in oestrogen and testosterone, the sex hormones. The condition is also likely in men of old and middle age because of ageing and hormonal shift. Certain medicines such as antibiotics, heart medicines, AIDS medicines, drugs for heartburn and anti-anxiety medicines may also be responsible for this condition. Drinking alcohol in excess and taking marijuana, and other recreational drugs also increase the chances of gynecomastia. Breast size may also get enhanced by the use of herbal products containing lavender oil and tea tree oil.

Men affected by gynecomastia are featured by having a rubbery mass underneath their nipple region. It is less in amount and is usually tender. Fluid discharge is also an indication in some cases.

For the diagnosis of gynecomastia, you should visit a plastic surgeon, who deals with cases of hormone imbalances. Blood or hormone tests may be required if your physical examination shows that your breasts are larger than usual, the lymph nodes are swollen, or when the lump is sore.

Commonly, gynecomastia can not be cured with medicines. Surgery is compulsory. In the case of teenagers, the breasts become of normal shape within two to three years. Surgery is the only option for restoring your chest shape and improving your self-image. In the surgery for treating gynecomastia, a small cut is made on your breasts and extra breast tissues are removed. This makes your breasts smaller and flatter. The nipple may also need to be repositioned. Liposuction is another procedure which is carried out for this purpose, in which extra fat is sucked out from under your skin. Among the different modes of treatment for gynecomastia, surgery is meant for long term results. However, you need to undertake a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain your new chest shape. Gaining weight and taking drugs may cause gynecomastia to reoccur. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cosmetic-plastic-surgeon.

Gynaecomastia Surgery & Contouring for Males
I am Dr Amit, plastic surgeon and director of Divine Cosmetic Surgery, we are located in South Extension Part- 2 in New Delhi.

So today I am going to talk little bit about one of the most common cosmetic surgery problem in men Gynecomastia, ye jo problem hai yeh sirf males me affect hoti hai jisme jo chest hota hai woh thoda sa jyada develop ho jata hai toh ek female like appearance aa jati hai, so it is also called man boobs ya male breast problem. Now as such isme koi functional problem nahi hoti hai kabhi bhi long term life mein usse koi dikkat nahi aayegi what happens is a patient is hesitate to take off his clothes, woh beech pe ja rahi hai ya ek tight T- shirt pehnane mein they feel very hesitant because ek female breast ki appearance aati hai toh unko ek psychological hitch aata hai, mentally wo itna comfortable nahi ho pate, toh normally lose clothes pahnte hain. Toh hamare paas jo patients aate hain unki ek hi complaint hoti hai ki hamari clothing suffer karti hai ya hum usko tighter clothes pehnane ya humko beech jaana hai toh we want better body. So Gynecomastia ki jo surgery hai woh bahut straight forward hai usme liposuction surgery karte hain aur dusri jo surgery hoti hai woh isliye hoti hai ki kuch patients mein fat ke alawa breast gland hota hai, nipple ke bilkul niche gland develop ho jata hai to usko nikalne ke liye surgery karni padti hai. Total procedure time 25 to 35 minutes hai or 2 se 3 ghante mein aap discharge bhi ho jate hain and aapki normal activity you can start as soon as the next day. Now this procedure is essentially scarless aap is procedure mein scar almost dekh hi nahi payenge jo liposuction ka nishan aata hai woh 4 millimetre ka ya even 3 millimetres ka hota hai woh dekh hi nahi sakta aur jo nipple ke neeche fat gland jo hota hai usko nikalne ke liye jo surgery hoti hai woh bhi 3 to 4 week ke baad wo nishan nazar nahi aata hai. So essentially scarless procedure hai, recovery in terms of rest hardly 2 din aap weekend pe karte hain toh monday ko back in office. Precautions kareeb 10 days tak heavy exercising mana hai so any sort of biking or gym, sports 10 din tak hum mana karte hain. Now ek aur isme surgery aati hai usko 4D Body Contouring bolte hai usme hum log chest packs ko bana pate hain, chest packs matlab normal ek breast gland, breast hai usme humne suction kara, gland nikal diya shape better kar diya. Agar hum ko ek athlete wali ya bodybuilder wali body dikhana chahte hain ki chest packs banaye huye hai toh 4D Body Contouring se hum log chest packs ko bhi create kar sakte hain, usme kareeb 1 ghanta lagta hai and within 3 weeks mein woh pura chest packs ki appearance aa jati hai. Now yeh surgery local anaesthesia mein bhi ki ja sakti hai ya general anaesthesia mein hospital mein jaake bhi kar sakte hain, jo hospital based procedures hai usme comfort jyada hai kyuki aap behosh ho jate hain you don't even come to know what's going on and within 3 to 4 hours hum aapko discharge kar dete hain. Absolutely complication free procedure 0% isme koi risk nahi hota, koi complication nahi hota and result is 100%. Jo patient satisfaction rates hai wo bahut high hai and kabhi complaint hi nahi aati also recurrence nahi hoti hai kyunki humne gland nikal diya, fat nikal diya, unless aapka weight 10-12 kilo badd jaye, uske bina fat aata nahi hai, essentially yeh one time procedure hai.

So agar aap consult karna chahte hain humko to aap Lybrate ke through ya phir hame South Extension mein hamare clinic pe directly contact kar sakte hain. Mera naam Dr. Amit and I am from Divine Cosmetic Surgery.

Myth Behind Male Breast Reduction
Good morning, I am Dr Vijay Kakkar, a senior consultant cosmetic and plastic surgeon. I am working in Kakkar health care group which is a clinic of long standing and have been doing all kind of cosmetic surgeries. We will be discussing Gynecomastia or a male surgery today.

As we know Gynecomastia is a problem in the young adult in which the male breast starts increasing. The problems start in the teenagers. Once there is little bit of problem in hormones. In the case of Gynecomastia, there must a slight elevation of the female hormones during the developing period. If the female hormone is more in the developing period of say,13-17 years of age. This gets hypertrophic and increase in size. There may not be any investigating factors.

In certain cases, it may be associated with some other diseases also. In such cases we have to find the cause of Gynecomastia. Where as in most of the cases we do not find any cause for increase the size in male breast. Once the patient of male breast comes to us, we examine him and analyse what kind of grades of gynecosmastia the person is having.

IN most of the boys or young adults are going to gym due top which muscle size increase, in such cases the gynecosmastia becomes more prominent. It is a myth that going to gym decreases the gynecosmatia, rather it increases. Once these people go in the society, they can not remove the t shirt and there are lot of problems and pressure that they can not go for swimming or they can not go to common public places wearing white t shirts. In such cases, the young adults suffer from psychological pressure. So we need to correct these problems.

It is a very simple surgery and a day care kind of surgery. We call the patient in the morning. We give an anaesthesia which is either local or general anaesthesia. Most of the fat can be removed with the process of Liposuction. It is a very minor surgery. We make a 2-3 mm size of cut and put a kind of cannula and lot of saline into the breast and suck all the fat. After sucking all the fat, we analyze if there is any breast gland left behind. If there is any breast gland left behind then we excise that breast gland with the help of a small cut which ios given in the infra cellular plane and that scar is also not visible.

After the surgery, the patient is given garment to wear for the month approximately. The swelling will go down within a week to 10 days time. The patient will be fine within a 6 days of time and patient will be back to normal. It is a permanent procesdure where no scar no cuts are left.

If you have any query about Gynecomastia, you can contact us or you can e mail at or contact us at 9811079483.

Thank you.

I am Dr. Rajesh, associate professor in the Department of plastic surgery in Deccan Medical College, also consulting plastic surgery various hospitals in Hydrabad. Today we are going to discuss about one of the most common complaints which I come across in my daily routine practice, that is gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia is a condition of non cancerous growth of the male breast. These conditions generally observed in infants and adults age and old age. The condition is observed in about 1 million population of India. In infants. this condition arises mainly due to the abnormality in the hormones. That is, the male hormones which are supposed to be increased and the female hormones which are supposed be decreased by their abnormal ratio. There is a change in the ratio of the hormones, then this condition is used to observe the mothers womb from the glass filter, that is, some of the hormones are injected to the child. So that's why we usually see there is a minor swelling of the childr's breasts this is called physiological.

Physiological normally occurs in most of the children and it's a common condition. Since something which is not common is non physiological, which is an abnormality. The next physiological condition where you see is in adult age and children are developing the male secondary sexual character. That time the male hormones which are supposed to be increase, when they are not increased and the female hormones which are supposed to get reduced . At that time, there is a change in the ratio game again you will see gynecomastia usually around 10 or 11 or 12 years of age. This will subside usually and 1 or 2 years of age and the next condition is again in the later age that is in the old age. There the testosterone hormones in the body comes down in the male then again you may see these are all these are physiological other.

Causes in the adults are mostly with the drugs are chronic. Diseases associated will be liver or kidney. Like liver in a sense of chronic sclerosis of the liver also where in the hormone which is supposed to get deleted is also one of the reason we're in developer gynecomastia and in a chronic renal problems with is undergo adolescence is also this. We can see all this kind of problem and there are very rare conditions like in a Klinefelter syndrome. There are some syndromes and some cancers are also associated with this condition but there are extremely very rare conditions. Where you see a gynecomastia syndrome for them, the evaluation is different to manage. There is long prove of medical management for this, like the drugs will not treat the cause. There are some drugs which are not even FDA approved but there are some drugs where we can give especially the adult causes but not for the physiological causes.

Physiological causes as I mentioned earlier after certain time or age they should subside and the body becomes normal like any other person but if it still doesn't subside then the option would be surgical. We do a lipo a small hole is made at the little side of the breast through that we suck out the fat if there is any fat. We suck out the fat and only the glandular tissue is delineated and then through a small incision in the area like nothing. But that pigmented skin around the nipple makes a small incision trhough which we take out the gland. That is most commonly followed treatment throughout the world and it has very great results.

Ye bhut hi common problem hai. Or har 100 me se kuch bachon ya ldkon ko ye problem hoti hai. Isko breast swelling bhi kehte hain or male breast bhi kehte hain. Jyadatar ye testosterone or estrogen hormone ki kamiyon ki vjha se payi jati hai. Iske alwa koi or bimariyan bhi ho skti hain.

Ya fir old age me bhi ye problem aa skt hai. Ye koi bimari nhi hai but cosmetologically and samaj ke lia ye ek problem hi hai. Especiallly outdoor activities ke lia like swimming, gym ya tight t-shirt pehnna and is problem ki vjha se aap tight t-shirts nhi pehen skte hain. So, commonly the treatment about this problem is a surgery. Surgery ke baad na ke brabar apko nishan aate hain. Or vo aisi jgha pe hote hain ki dikhayi nhi dete hain. Isko bina kisi nishan ke bhi liposuction or bachi hui gland ko incision ke through bhi nikala ja skta hai. Ye apne aap bhi kuch log me khtm ho skta hai. Iske lia treatment and medicines ki jrurat bhi pad skti hai. Doctor pehle pure test krne ke baad hi apka surgery krte hain.

Ye daycare ya ek din me hi surgery ho skti hai. Local ya general anaesthesia me ye surgery ki jati hai or iske results bhut ache hain. Surgery bilkul safe hai. Isme chota size bna ke or pen ke size ke canola ke through fat nikal dia jata hai. Fat nikalne ke baad me jo bachi hui glands hoti hain inko bhi nikal dia jata hai. Khoon ki puri janch krne ke baad bhi ise band kr dia jata hai. Surgery ke 6 mahine ke baad bhi apko compression garment pehnna hota hai. Iske baad koi nishan bhi nhi pdta hai. Surgery ke baad apko kisi trha ki koi kamjori nhi aati hai. Aap sabhi parkar ki outdoor and indoor activity kar skte hain.
