It can be associated with some drug use or hormonal imbalance but, in most cases, there is no known cause. It is common in teenage boys but usually resolves by early adulthood.
Gynaecomastia can lead to embarrassment and this may result in low self-esteem and depression in affected men.For individuals who have tried a regime of exercise and diet and have had no success, then a surgical operation can be considered.
In some cases, when the enlargement is mainly due to excess fatty tissues, liposuction is useful. In other cases, where the enlargement is mainly due to breast tissue, then surgery can be useful to remove the excess disc of tissue through an incision around the areolar (the coloured disc of skin around the nipple).
In extreme cases, there is also an excess of skin which needs to be addressed with surgery. This procedure will leave a scar on the breast/chest.
More commonly a combination of surgery and liposuction are indicated.
I was treated by Dr Nalluri who is a highly qualified and experienced consultant dermatologist. My treatment experience and outcome were excellent. Friendly, helpful staff, lovely clean environment, highly recommended. Useful Share
Great staff, attentive and always able to answer my questions. Dr Oudit really listened and gave good advice to make sure I knew everything before the surgery. Highly recommend it – was worth the travel!
I felt comfortable with Mr Oudit right from the start. He was extremely thorough and went through all the information I needed right from the first consultation. The staff are great and on hand anytime you need to speak to anyone, especially Abna. I had no doubt in my mind Mr Oudit was the right surgeon for my procedure after our first conversation. I am only 5 days post-op and just received a lovely bouquet of flowers from the team. Thank you all so much, My Cosmetic Clinic. I will definitely recommend to family and friends.
