Gynecomastia is the enlargement of male’s chest due to increase in the hormone estrogen over the hormone  testosterone. 

About Gynecomastia

Both male and female of the species have breast tissue. At puberty the breast develops; guided by hormones and genetic programming the breast evolves in its classical from into a female or a male breast. Some men have excessive fatty or glandular tissue and it causes untold embarrassment to young boys who are growing up. The psychological trauma is severe and hence shaping the male breast becomes a very important procedure.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia is the enlargement of male’s chest due to increase in the hormone estrogen over the hormone  testosterone. 

Primary Gynecomastia appears during puberty and is found in males in the age group of 13-17 years.

Secondary Gynecomastia appears in males of any age group and is generally associated with weight gain. 

Cosmetic surgeons perform gynecomastia surgery on men with man-boobs. The doctor removes the excess skin, excess fat, tightens the skin and  reshapes the chest to be in proportion with the rest of the body. The psychological trauma is severe and hence shaping the male breast becomes a very important procedure. 

The techniques used for Gynaecomastia are Liposuction and VASER. Liposuction is capable of producing some excellent results and VASER with its high definition possibilities is a very good method to get fine shape of the chest. Older procedures produced some ghastly scars and our aim is to reduce them to few millimeters. We have extensive experience with VASER and it is a great tool for Gynaecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery ensures that the gynecomastia never reappears in the patient’s body during his lifetime.

What To Expect During Recovery?
