What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition where men have enlarged breasts that can result from having excess skin, fat, or glandular tissue. Men will complain of having a solid, rubbery like mass underneath the nipple area causing a puffy look. This can be caused by genetics, steroid use, or other factors. Gynecomastia can cause men to be self-conscious about the appearance and size of their breasts. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we specialize in surgical techniques that can help patients overcome gynecomastia for good.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia can result from a variety of factors, often related to hormonal imbalances between estrogen and testosterone. These imbalances can be caused by:

  • Natural Hormonal Changes: Gynecomastia is most commonly associated with puberty, aging, and other natural periods of hormonal adjustment.
  • Medications: Certain medications can lead to gynecomastia, including anti-androgens, anabolic steroids, HIV medication, anti-anxiety medication, and some antibiotics.
  • Health Conditions: Liver and kidney disease, thyroid disorders, and tumors can affect hormone levels, contributing to gynecomastia.
  • Substance Use: Alcohol, marijuana, and some recreational drugs are linked to the development of gynecomastia.
  • Weight Gain: Obesity can lead to increased estrogen production, which may cause or exacerbate gynecomastia

How to Get Rid of Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction surgery, is the most effective treatment for gynecomastia. This procedure involves the removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a more traditionally masculine chest contour. The specific surgical approach may vary depending on the severity of the gynecomastia and may include liposuction, excision, or a combination of both.

How to Get Rid of Gynecomastia Without Surgery?

While non-surgical methods may offer temporary relief or slight improvement in the appearance of gynecomastia, they do not guarantee permanent resolution. If you are not ready for surgery, you may want to consider some of the following strategies:

  • Lifestyle Changes: Weight loss through diet and exercise can reduce the appearance of gynecomastia in cases where excess fat is a contributing factor.
  • Medication: In some instances, medications that adjust hormone levels may be recommended to address underlying hormonal imbalances.
  • Compression Garments: Compression shirts can temporarily minimize the appearance of gynecomastia, offering a non-invasive way to manage the condition day-to-day.
  • The only permanent solution for eliminating gynecomastia is through surgical intervention. Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is specifically designed to remove both the excess fatty and glandular tissue, offering a long-lasting, often permanent, resolution to the condition.
