For a man, extra breast growth can make him feel cautious and concerning as it can impede his manly looks. Gynecomastia, also known as male breast reduction surgery, helps reduce breast size in men while flattening and improving masculine chest contours. 

Gynecomastia is a condition where the breast glands and tissues in men overgrow or are overdeveloped, affecting either one or both breasts. Gynecomastia can cause emotional and social problems, and many men lose self-confidence. Internally, the gynecomastia condition involves.

  • Excess of localised fat tissues
  • Increased glandular tissues
  • Increased breast skin

Gynecomastia correction surgery is scientifically called reduction mammoplasty. It is performed by a plastic surgeon, where the excess fat, glandular, and breast skin is removed to give a flat, firm, masculine chest. An ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery must fit the following criteria.

  • Men with gynecomastia (in one or both the breasts),
  • Physically fit and healthy men,
  • Men with realistic expectations,
  • Men who are primarily non-smokers,
  • Young men with elastic, collagen-rich skin texture.

Step By Step Procedure of Gynecomastia surgery in Gurgaon

If you are looking for gynecomastia surgery in Gurgaon or elsewhere, you must remember that you will primarily have a detailed consultation with your doctor with medical history evaluation, general diagnostic tests, and breast examination. 

Once ready for the surgery, general or local anaesthesia is administered before the surgery begins. During the surgery, the cosmetic surgeon will take you through the following procedures. 

  • The initial incision in certain locations. In the case of fat deposit removal, small incisions are enough to conduct liposuction. While for glandular tissue removal, larger incisions are required that are done along the natural creases created.
  • The incisions help eliminate the extra fat and skin tissues, either by liposuction or normal excision techniques. 
  • Once the surgery is completed, the incisions are sutured, and temporary drain pipes may or may not be placed under the skin to collect fluid discharge (depending upon the grade of your Gynaecomastia ).
  • After the closure of incisions, the patient is observed for a few hours. 
  • The dressing and sutures will be removed once the wounds have healed completely. 

Though it is an outpatient procedure, the gynecomastia surgery may sometimes require a day’s hospitalisation, especially in cases of severe gynecomastia condition. 

The surgeon will recommend two to three days of bed rest post-surgery for better healing. The complete recovery from gynecomastia depends on the individuals condition, and can take 1- 2 weeks. You will need to follow proper post-surgery care that can help in a good and quick recovery.
