Male chest (Gynecomastia):

Gynecomastia 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 Gynecomastia male breast.
  • 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

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