Treatment of Gynecomastia
The treatment of gynecomastia depends on the underlying cause and severity of the condition.
Lifestyle Changes & Medication
Lifestyle changes such as weight loss and exercise may help alleviate the symptoms of gynecomastia. In cases where gynecomastia is caused by a medication or hormonal imbalance, stopping the medication or addressing the underlying medical condition may resolve the issue. In some cases, hormone therapy or surgery may be necessary.
This may involve the use of medications such as certain inhibitors to reduce estrogen levels in the body. Hormone therapy may be recommended for men who have persistent gynecomastia despite lifestyle changes or who have a high risk of developing breast cancer.
Surgery may be recommended for men with severe or persistent gynecomastia. The most common surgical procedure for gynecomastia is called a subcutaneous mastectomy, which involves removing the breast tissue through a small incision. In some cases, liposuction may be used to remove excess fat in the breast area.
Gynecomastia can be caused by hormonal imbalances, certain medications, and underlying medical conditions such as liver or kidney disease. In some cases, the cause may be unknown.
In some cases, gynecomastia may go away on its own, particularly if it is caused by a medication or hormonal imbalance. However, if the condition persists or causes significant discomfort or embarrassment, medical treatment may be necessary.
Gynecomastia surgery, also known as a subcutaneous mastectomy or male breast reduction, is a surgical procedure to remove excess breast tissue and fat in males with gynecomastia.
Recovery time can vary depending on the extent of the surgery, but most patients can expect to return to work and normal activities within a week or two. Patients will need to wear compression garments and avoid strenuous activity for several weeks following the surgery.
Gynecomastia surgery can improve the appearance of the chest by reducing breast size and creating a more masculine contour. The results of the surgery are typically long-lasting. Factors that may potentially encourage a recurrence will be discussed with our gynecomastia team.
Depending on whether just gynecomastia excision is needed, or whether gynecomastia and liposuction is needed, the cost varies between AED 28,000 - AED 36,000 at a high quality facility such as Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital Dubai, where the surgery is performed by an experienced UK Board Certified Breast Oncoplastic Surgeon.
