Male Breast Surgery / Gynecomastia in Hyderabad
Gynaecomastia is divided into four grades
- Grade 1: 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 2: 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

Why do male breasts (man boobs) happen?
Are there different kinds of gynaecomastia?
What are the causes of gynaecomastia (male breasts)?
In the majority of cases, there is no specific cause, and it is due to hypersensitivity of a breast to circulating female hormones (oestrogen) during puberty. Hormonal analysis of blood usually is normal in these cases. Obesity and fat deposits in the breast also is a common situation nowadays. Obesity is also associated with relative oestrogen excess. Physiological gynaecomastia can also occur in newborns and old age.
In a very small number of cases, gynaecomastia may be due to some specific cause like:
- Usage of certain drugs like anabolic steroids, oestrogens (for the treatment of prostate cancer)
- Long term usage of antacids like cimetidine and omeprazole
- Some drugs used for treating psychosis, spironolactone and finasteride (antiandrogens), imatinib
- Supplements used for body building containing anabolic steroids or performance enhancing substances containing hormone androstenedione
- Additives like alcohol or marijuana
Some genetic conditions like Klinefelter’s syndrome
- Chronic liver disease, hyperthyroidism, adrenal tumours
- Diseases of testes of pituitary leading to a reduction in male hormones

I had lovely laugh lines that made me look attractive when I smiled, or so my friends said. But it worried me that my skin was getting less supple as I grew older. Having read and heard so much about skin tightening treatments, I decided to give it a shot. My first consultation at Ambrosia helped me understand what to expect and how to care for my skin post procedure. Dr. Priti’s thoroughness during the examination was very reassuring too. I thoroughly recommend everyone who is concerned about their skin looking uncared for as they age. Ambrosia totally helped me remind myself that age is only a number. Thank you Dr. Priti for your magic.

My teenage acne had left a lot of scars on my face. That was all I saw when I looked in the mirror. While searching for treatment, I came across Ambrosia and decided to check out what could be done about it. My first impression when I walked in was one of complete ease with the warmth of the staff and the calm atmosphere. The initial consultation helped me understand what can be done to gradually remove the scars on my face as well as what I needed to do post-procedure. I am so happy with the results and go out of my way to mention Ambrosia whenever someone points out how smooth and beautiful my skin looks now. Thank you Ambrosia!

I had broken my nose as a child after a fall. It was misshapen because of that. The twisted nose also led to breathing problems. Searching for solutions, I came across Ambrosia Clinic and the procedures they offer to correct that. I was suggested surgery. I am thankful to the team of plastic surgeons who helped correct my nose as well as the breathing problems. My recovery time was minimal and I am able to lead a normal life since then. A big thank you to the great team at Ambrosia.

I had skin pigmentation on my face. It always made me conscious and I would hide it with layers of makeup. My friend suggested I meet Dr. Priti and do something about it instead of hiding behind makeup. I did not know what to expect, but was totally blown away by her warmth and the modern set up at Ambrosia. She not only explained the procedures I could get done but also what to expect at each stage during recovery. I thoroughly recommend Ambrosia and especially Dr. Priti to everyone.
