Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction surgery, is a procedure aimed at reducing the size of enlarged breasts in men. This surgery is typically considered for individuals who have persistent gynecomastia that does not respond to other treatments or lifestyle changes.

Who Needs Gynecomastia Surgery?

  • Gynecomastia surgery is usually recommended for individuals who experience significant physical discomfort, pain, or emotional distress due to enlarged breast tissue. 
  • It is not typically performed on individuals whose gynecomastia is related to obesity or caused by the use of certain medications, as lifestyle changes or addressing the underlying cause may be more appropriate in such cases. 

Recognizing the unique factors contributing to each case of gynecomastia, Dr. Sandhya develops personalized treatment plans tailored to address the specific needs and concerns of the patient. This is an important factor to provide the best and result-oriented gynecomastia surgery in Bangalore.

How is Gynecomastia Surgery Done?

  • Gynecomastia surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, but in some cases, local anaesthesia with sedation may be used. 
  • In cases where gynecomastia is primarily due to excess fatty tissue, liposuction may be used to remove the fat. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves making small incisions and using a cannula to suction out the excess fat. 
  • If glandular tissue is the main cause of gynecomastia, surgical excision may be necessary. This involves making an incision to remove the excess glandular tissue and, in some cases, excess skin. 
  • In many cases, a combination of liposuction and excision may be used to achieve the best results. The specific technique used will depend on the individual's anatomy and the extent of gynecomastia.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery Recovery Like?

Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual's overall health. Patients may need to wear a compression garment to support the chest during the healing process. It's essential to follow post-operative care instructions from Dr Sandhya to achieve the desired results. 

Some of the key tips for recovery are:

  • Patients are usually advised to wear compression clothes after surgery to reduce swelling and provide support during the initial healing phase. 
  • Hard activities and heavy lifting are usually restricted for a few weeks following surgery to allow for proper healing.
