Gynecomastia (Male Breast) in Hyderabad

Gynecomastia in Hyderabad – Normal male chest does not have prominent nipples. Male Chest may be flat or bulky depending on the bulk of pectoral muscle, but the shape is never conical like that of female breasts. Attractive male chest has pectoral muscle lower and outer border visible. Male nipples are small, usually 2 -3 cm in width.

Gynaecomastia or male breast is a common condition. Enlargement of male breasts happens due to overgrowth of breast glands or due to fat deposit or both. Gynaecomastia is divided into four grades.

Grade one – only nipple enlargement and pointiness: This is seen in men with normal BMI (normal weight), and it is because of enlargement of gland tissue under the nipple Gland excision surgery under local anaesthesia restores the normality of male chest.

Grade two: Gland and fat extend all over the pectoral muscle, covering the outlines of muscle. This is the commonest type of gynaecomastia.

Grade 3: This looks like a well developed female breast, and is difficult to hide even in clothes

Grade 4: This looks like a saggy female breast. It happens in obese men or after massive weight loss or bariatric surgery

Gynaecomastia in the majority of cases is of unknown origin and not associated with any other health issues. There is no medical treatment of gynaecomastia. Exercises and weight loss do not cure gynaecomastia. Surgery is the best option for treatment. Following surgeries are done for different types of gynaecomastia.

Male Breast Reduction “Gynaecomastia” is a Greek word meaning “women-like breasts.” It is a common condition affecting 60-70 percent of males sometime during teenage years. Mostly these breasts are relatively small, regress spontaneously in a couple of years and do not become a cause of concern.

Gynecomastia becomes bothersome when:

1. Male breasts or pointy nipples are showing through clothing.

2. Causing embarrassment in wearing gym wear and swimming trunks or going shirtless

3. Causing psychological trauma.

4. Gynaecomastia can affect slim and athletic men as well as obese men

FAQ

AT WHAT AGE IT IS SAFE TO HAVE BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY?

It is safe to have Breast Augmentation with Silicon Breast implants after 18 years of age.

ARE SILICON BREAST IMPLANTS SAFE?

Silicon breast implants are made of high-grade silicon polymer which is very compatible with the human body. Silicon breast implants are in use since 1960s and due to constant technological updates latest implants are very safe.

HOW LONG CAN IMPLANT STAY IN MY BODY?

Implants can stay lifelong without causing any problems. Sometimes implants need to be changed after 10-15 years if there is leakage or implant failure.

WHAT IS IMPLANT LEAKAGE?

Silicon gel implants are made of Solid silicon outer shell and are filled with cohesive gel. Due to wear and tear over years thus outer shell may become weak and inner gel may protrude out. Older implants used to have thinner gel, and that leaked around the breast tissue. The modern cohesive gel is like pudding and does not run like liquid. The body forms a capsule around the implant. In the case of leakage, gel stays inside the capsule and can be removed easily without any spread in the breast or body.

DO IMPLANTS HAVE AN EXPIRY DATE? DO THEY NEED TO BE CHANGED AT REGULAR INTERVALS?

No, implants don’t have an expiry date, and they need not be changed if there is no problem. The usual life span of the implant is 10-15 years, but they can last much longer.

WHAT COMPLICATIONS CAN HAPPEN WITH BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY?

Breast implant is a safe procedure, but every surgery carries some risk. Hematoma, Seroma and Infection are some of the problems that can happen after surgery. Further treatment and surgery may be required to correct these complications. The scar can be prominent in some people and may require some treatment. In long term implant, leakage and capsular contracture may happen in some cases.

WHAT IS CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE?

Body naturally forms a protective covering called capsule around the breast implant. Sometimes capsule can become thick and hard making breasts feel firmer than usual. This is called capsular contracture. Capsular contracture can also cause pain and loss of shape. Capsular contracture is treatable by surgery.

HOW BIG CAN MY BREASTS BECOME?

It is safe to not increase the breast size too drastically. The increase of one or two cup sizes is safe. Putting too big an implant may over stretch the skin and breast tissue and can look unnatural. Your doctor will recommend the safe implant size after examining you.

WHAT IS IMPLANT SIZE RIGHT FOR ME?

Implant size depends on a lot of factors. Like your height and weight, existing breast tissue, skin fold thickness on the breast and width of chest. During consultation with Dr Priti Shukla, you can show her pictures of models whose breast size is close to what you expect. The doctor will be able to tell you if that is safe for you.

CAN I BREASTFEED AFTER BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY?

Yes, breast implants do not interfere with breastfeeding, and you can safely do so.

WILL MY BREASTS LOOK AND FEEL NATURAL AFTER IMPLANTS?

Yes, breasts will look and feel very natural if implant of the right size and quality is used.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE IMPLANTS?

Usually women are very satisfied with breast implants. But if you don’t like implants you can have them removed with a simple surgery.
