Gynecomastia - an enlargement of the male breast - is a problem that not only causes immense discomfort in patients, but also often leads to impaired social adaptation. A man who has severe gynecomastia feels uncomfortable in a fitness club, sauna, on the beach, and may experience problems in his personal life. Because of false shyness, he often avoids going to the doctor, although gynecomastia requires professional treatment. There are two types of gynecomastia in men - true, caused by abnormal growth of glandular tissue in the "female type", and false - when breast augmentation occurs due to local deposition of fat. Against the background of general obesity, both types of gynecomastia are often manifested.
The cause of true gynecomastia can be a number of factors: hormonal imbalance, taking certain medications, impaired liver function and metabolism. Recently, however, breast growth has been observed in healthy young men who are actively involved in sports. Gynecomastia here occurs due to the uncontrolled use of anabolic steroids, which are widely used to build muscle mass.
The initial treatment for gynecomastia is carried out by endocrinologists and mammologists. If gynecomastia is caused by adolescent hormonal imbalances, it often clears up on its own. But if conservative treatment does not work, patients over 18 years of age are advised to consult a surgeon: gynecomastia that occurs in men of reproductive age is considered a direct indication for surgery.
A prerequisite for performing an operation to treat gynecomastia is a consultation with a mammologist oncologist. Surgical treatment of gynecomastia is a simple, standard procedure. If the problem is caused by the growth of glandular tissue, it is excised through small incisions. When gynecomastia is also accompanied by excessive stretching of the skin, it may be necessary to tighten it, and sometimes transfer the nipple to its original level: incisions are made in the areola and after healing they will be hardly noticeable. With false gynecomastia, provoked by obesity, liposuction is used - removal of local fat deposits, and, if necessary, excision of excess stretched skin.
