WHAT IS GYNECOMASTIA
Gynecomastia or male breast is excess fatty tissue in the male mammary glands. In some cases, gynecomastia can appear or develop due to hormonal or genetic changes in the patient, and this increase in volume in the mammary glands manifests between 12 to 22 years of age. For Gynecomastia/male breast reduction surgery in Panipat, Dr. Sahil Singla, best plastic surgeon in Panipat, performs an individual study of the patient and assesses the suitability of performing an aesthetic operation. An intervention with which the male torso looks healthy and symmetrical. The opinion of the plastic surgeon is essential to end gynecomastia, as we can find cases in which fat has accumulated in this area of the body without developing glandular tissue and, therefore, require another type of treatment.
Gynecomastia in Panipat is carried out by eliminating the excess breast tissue in the chest caused by a production of estrogen and testosterone outside the normal rate. On the other hand, gynecomastia in men can present in two different ways:
- Gynecomastia: In this case, the excess volume is due to the accumulation of breast tissue due to the altered production of estrogens and testosterone.
- Pseudo gynecomastia refers to the excess of fatty tissue only in the mammary glands and the solution is much simpler since only the adipose tissue has to be removed from the pectoral area.
Results: definitive and immediate.
After the procedure of male breast reduction surgery in Panipat, it shows definitive results since by removing the fatty tissue or breast tissue excess volume is immediately removed from the pectoral area. It is important that during the first month after the treatment, the patient rests and does not do any high intensity sports as this could affect recovery and results.
Gynecomastia surgery in Panipat is recommended when:
- The patient has excess volume in the chest area.
- This excess volume affects the quality of life of the patient.
- Patients who are at the desired weight.
- Patients who do not consume alcohol or smoke excessively.
First of all, it is necessary to detect if the patient needs a true gynecomastia or a pseudo gynecomastia. For this, a first evaluation visit is necessary, where the best plastic surgeon in Panipat will examine the patient’s breast, and by means of palpation he will be able to give his diagnosis reliably.
True gynecomastia: excess fat and mammary gland are eliminated. In our clinic it is always performed accompanied by liposuction, with which part of the mammary gland could be removed. If this were not enough and the mammary gland remains, a resection (removal) of the deepest part of the gland would be carried out, always leaving something in the upper part (it is never completely removed because otherwise the man’s chest would be sunken). The incision can be of two types: lower periareolar, or upper periareolar in case the breast was slightly saggy. Through the incision, some skin is removed from the top and the areola is pulled up a bit.
Pseudo gynecomastia: With pseudo gynecomastia, only excess fat is removed. The male breast reduction surgery in Panipat consists of performing a liposuction of the pectoral area, through a micro incision in the armpit or nipple area so that it is as less visible as possible.
