A man who has a bust bulge, like a woman, is called a Gynecomastia. The surgical method of correction of the enlarged breasts in men is called Gynecomastia Surgery. There are cases where the mammary gland (the part that can make breasts) itself develops like a woman (true feminized breast), and cases where the breast swells as a result of being simply fat and false Gynecomastia. In the case of a true Gynecomastia, the excess mammary gland and fat are removed and cured (mastectomy) the pathology is most often eliminated by direct excision.
On the other hand, in the case of Pseudogynecomastia, it is prescribed for ineffective conservative treatment of Gynecomastia or pseudo-Gynecomastia. As a result of surgery, excessive fat and glandular breast tissue in men are eliminated, and the natural size and shape of the breast are restored. The technique of Gynecomastia correction is similar to liposuction. Fat is aspirated and cured (a liposuction method). An incision is made under the armpit or around the areola to remove excess mammary glands and fat. The treatment time is 60 to 90 minutes, and the patient operates during infusion anesthesia, so there is no pain during the operation. After surgery, wear a band for the chest (the band is like a running shirt and you can usually wear clothes on it. You can remove the band yourself).
After the operation, if there is no direct impact on the affected area, normal life is possible from the day. You can take a shower from the third day after surgery. Bathing is possible after the 7th day. Please refrain from alcohol for one week and intense exercise for 2-3 weeks. The chest band should be worn for 3-4 weeks after surgery. Patients are offered comprehensive programs to accelerate the healing of postoperative wounds and reduce swelling. These programs make it possible to shorten the rehabilitation period by an average of 2 times.

With the help of special tools, the Gynecomastia Doctor in Punjab through the incision eliminates part of the gland, as well as excess fat. At the end of the operation, the incision is sutured with biodegradable (self-absorbing) filaments. In some cases, a drainage tube is installed to drain the blood. A bandage is applied to closed incisions, and compression linen is put on the patient’s body. Removed tissues are sent for histological examination.
Possible Reasons for Gynecomastia
All men may have some hormonal effects associated with breast growth in their teens. If this growth is excessive, the size of the breast becomes larger than it should be and this is the cause of Gynecomastia. Also, if there is excessive weight gain or the use of some drugs, it becomes a cause of breast enlargement.
Is Gynecomastia related to Breast Cancer Directly?
There is no direct link between Gynecomastia and breast cancer. However, if asymmetric rapid growth is observed in one breast or two breasts, not in the adolescent period, it should be examined whether there is breast cancer or any risk.
