What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a medical term that means enlargement of the male breast. It can affect one breast or both and is relatively common in adolescent boys and older males alike. A reported 35 to 40% of males are affected by gynecomastia. The emotional and social effects of this condition can be very distressing. Many patients say they suffer from poor body image, expressing feelings of shame, embarrassment, and humiliation. They are often reluctant to remove their shirts in public and shy away from social interactions and activities like swimming, playing on sports teams, and participating in gym class.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

There is no known measurable cause of gynecomastia in the vast majority of patients. In a small percentage of patients, gynecomastia may be caused by certain drugs or medical conditions involving the thyroid gland, kidneys, liver, or testes. If deemed appropriate, a patient may be evaluated by an endocrinologist or internist to rule out a known cause. When gynecomastia persists beyond 12 months, it rarely regresses.

How Do You Fix Gynecomastia?

Fortunately, in most cases, gynecomastia can be corrected surgically through a straightforward procedure at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery. The procedure is usually accompanied by a quick, painless recovery. This results in a flatter, firmer chest with improved contour and no visible scarring. It also leads to a marked improvement in emotional outlook.

What Is Scarless Breast Reduction for Men?

In patients with gynecomastia, excess fat, glandular tissue, or a combination of both cause the breast to be enlarged. Unless you have severe gynecomastia with marked breast enlargement and excess skin, your gynecomastia can usually be treated using a minimally invasive liposuction technique, our scarless breast reduction. This technique eliminates the need for long, periareolar incisions still made by many surgeons that leave visible scarring around the areola.

Liposuction is effective for removing fatty excess from the breast. Dr. Parker typically uses SAFELipo® or VASER® ultrasonic lipo. He has found these techniques provide more efficient, less traumatic fat removal along with skin tightening and reduction. Through one tiny, well-concealed incision in the armpit area, Dr. Parker can remove the excess fat to achieve a flatter chest contour.

In patients with excess glandular tissue, Dr. Parker removes this tissue with a specialized cannula inserted through the same tiny incision in the armpit area used for liposuction. The incision is closed with a single dissolvable suture, leaving a hidden, imperceptible scar; in essence, it’s a minimally invasive “scarless” breast reduction.

The procedure takes about one hour to complete and is performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, monitored by a board-certified anesthesiologist in our on-site, fully accredited private surgical center.

Is Gynecomastia Surgery Worth It?

Having been bothered by their appearance, often for years, patients now feel better about what they see in the mirror. As Dr. Parker continues to see his patients for routine follow-up visits over the next several months, he observes their self-confidence rise. They are progressively more comfortable removing their shirts in public and engaging in social activities such as going to the beach. It is a very gratifying and uplifting surgery for our patients and staff alike.

How Do Men Get Rid of Inverted Nipples?

Up to 10% of men have inverted or retracted nipples. This condition may occur on its own or in conjunction with gynecomastia. During a simple, 20-minute, in-office procedure under local anesthesia, Dr. Parker releases the constricting bands with a tiny incision, allowing the inverted nipple to assume a normal position. The procedure can be done alone or at the time of gynecomastia correction with scarless breast reduction.

How Can I Tighten the Skin on My Chest?

For some men, a chest lift may be the best option. Male patients with severe gynecomastia have marked breast development, including excess skin and enlarged areolas. In these cases, Dr. Parker can perform male breast reduction to remove skin and re-contour the chest to achieve a masculine appearance. Men who have lost significant amounts of weight may also need help with excess chest skin.
