GYNECOMASTIA / “MAN BOOBS” SURGERY
Gynecomastia is a condition in which male breasts are enlarged. This may be a result of hormonal changes, heredity, disease, or the use of certain drugs. Enlarged male breasts often cause embarrassment and have many negative effects on a man’s self-esteem and social life.
Excess glandular (breast) tissue in men, called ‘gynecomastia’ is a common condition, seen in an estimated 40-60% of men, and can result in significant social embarrassment and loss of confidence.
- Enlarged male breast tissues can be present in one breast (unilaterally) or both breasts (bilaterally).
- The condition is often more noticeable in people who are carrying excess weight.

Male breast gynecomastia surgery is a surgical procedure to masculinise the chest by removing the chest tissue or altering the nipples and areola. Any physically fit male who has significantly large breasts, enough to embarrass him is a candidate for surgical correction.
You should feel comfortable and confident about every aspect of male breast surgery. We’ll give you all the information and time you need to think about it. And, we’ll be here, caring for you every step of the way.
Causes of Gynecomastia:
- Increased breast tissue
- Excess fat deposition
- Hormonal changes that often occur with adolescence
- Genetics (ethnicity or abnormality)
- Increased levels of estrogen
- Decreased or lacking testosterone
Ideal Candidates for Gynecomastia Surgery
Any physically fit male who has significant breasts large enough to embarrass him is a candidate for surgical correction. Male breasts could be mild, moderate or severe. Mild breasts usually have a glandular structure under the skin, made up of fat and fibrous tissue. There is usually no excess of skin. In moderate breasts, along with the gland, there is some excess of skin, which can contract after the gland is removed. In severe gynecomastia, the excess skin may have to be removed as well.
- Male with Puffy Nipples or sometimes Projected nipples also opt for corrective Gynecomastia Treatment
- Even in absence of Gynecomastia, liposuction can be done for Male Chest Sculpting

About The Procedure:
We use the more modern scarless technique using VASER liposuction. Through a tiny keyhole we suck the fat and majority of the glandular part of the breast from under the nipple.
If the breasts are fatty, it is possible to get rid of the breast gland by liposuction alone. Power assisted Liposuction or Ultrasonic liposuction ( VASER ) is preferred as male breasts are more fibrous. It is possible to remove all the fat and leave an even chest. The excess skin contracts in the next six weeks. If the breasts are more fibrous and nodular or if a small nodule is left behind after liposuction, then through a small infra-areolar incision the residual nodule is removed.
Anesthesia required usually for the procedure would be local anesthesia with conscious sedation (twilight anaesthesia) for improved comfort, yet it is possible to do it under General anesthesia as well.
Recovery After Gynecomastia Surgery:
The chest will be bandaged and wrapped with a pressure garment. Pain medication will be prescribed to ease any swelling and discomfort. Our Recovery Protocol, which includes supplements, vitamins, and anti-bruising medications, will begin.
Patients are usually able to return to work after 4 to 7 days. However, patients should avoid physical activity and exercise at this time. Swelling will begin to resolve.
We will recommend light physical activities, but patients should avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting.
4 – 6 weeks:
By this time most of the swelling and bruising must have disappeared. You can resume your normal workout regime or any sports after getting clearance from Dr. Prayas.
