Gynecomastia is not a disease says doctors of Panacea Hospital

Common disorder of the endocrine system is known as Gynecomastia, which makes male chest looks like woman’s breast. This disease affects almost half of the world population. Most of these cases start in puberty due the imbalance of sex hormones and other cases involves side effect of some medication, anabolic steroids, alcohol etcetera. Good news is, any age is perfect to undergo the operation to get rid of it, and you just need be emotionally stable for it.

The root cause behind Gynecomastia is fat and a combination of breast tissue that most of the doctors have to deal with today. The surgery can be done two ways, one involves the liposuction and the other one is done by cutting out excess glandular tissue. The results are permanent and can be seen clearly after the surgery, even the scar remain hidden under the nipple.

Although this hormonal imbalance is not hazardous for the person having it, rather it’s more of a psychological disturbance for them, which usually lowers their confidence to deal with rest of the world and live a normal life. People who face this problem in India usually don’t pay heed to it and they learn to live with it as it is. They also don’t go for the surgery due to the lack of knowledge regarding the same.

Gynecomastia: What it is?

Gynecomastia refers to an abnormal development of female-like and over-developed breasts in males. Breasts are glands accumulated with fat in both male and female bodies. In Gynecomastia, fat provides a cushion to men and does not serve to store energy. It consists of active tissues and does not disappear even if heavy exercise is done.

Gynecomastia can be caused due to various reasons like heredity, hormonal changes, disease or consumption of certain drugs.

Types of Gynecomastia:

  • Neonatal Gynecomastia: This occurs in a natal stage when a new born develops breasts under the effect of maternal sex hormone.
  • Adolescent Gynecomastia: This occurs in adolescent boys at the time of puberty.
  • Senile Gynecomastia: This occurs at an older age when the circulating male sex hormone is reduced and female sex hormone becomes predominant.

Treatment for Gynecomastia:

We, at Panacea, believe that drug treatments for Gynecomastia mostly fail as glands once grown cannot be reversed back. Also, drug treatments usually consist of anti-hormones which can have other harsh side effects too.

A surgical treatment of Gynecomastia is the most viable option. There are various kinds of surgeries one can opt for to treat Gynecomastia. Panacea Hospital provides various kinds of surgeries for Gynecomastia which includes:

Peri-areolar Incision: During this, incision is made either at aerola skin junction or just inside that. Dissection of the gland is done through the same incision and the gland is moved out.

Infra-mammary approach: In this, incision below the breast is made and the gland and extra skin is taken out. It is used in extreme cases, when breast is very large.

Minimally invasive surgery: In this, tiny incisions of about 3-4 mm are made and the gland and fat are removed through them. It can also help reshape the chest area in men with Liposuction.

Nephrology: What it is and How We are Different

Nephrology is a branch of medical sciences which deals with the study of normal kidney function, problems and their treatment. It deals with renal replacement therapies including dialysis and kidney transplantation and studies the systematic conditions which affect the kidneys leading to various kidney problems such as hypertension and renal cancer. Various diseases such as glomerular disorders, urine abnormalities, kidney and bladder stones, cancers of kidney, bladder and urethra, etc. are studied and dealt with under nephrology.

Panacea’s Competence in Diverse Plastic Surgeries like Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a term used to refer to the unusual enhancement of female-like breasts in males, mostly owing to the hormonal imbalance or hereditary conditions, a disease or the overuse of certain drugs. Considering an ideal scenario, the male chest is firm, well shaped and muscular; however, at times it becomes fatty and begins to sag. This looks quite abnormal and leaves a person feeling embarrassed of his unhealthy and ill-shaped body structure. In medical terms, this enlargement is explained as the abnormal growth of huge mammary glands and exorbitant deposits of fat in males, ultimately taking the shape of enlarged breasts, similar to that of women.

This condition of over-enhanced breasts in men can occur at any point of time in life, regardless of age. In neonates (newborns), it can be due to the influence of mother’s female hormones or in teenage and elderly, it can result due to an illness or metabolic disorder or even because of the rampant obesity. It is undoubtedly a severe condition for anyone to handle as it can considerably mar the self esteem and confidence of a person with regard to his social standing. Although, it is definitely a cause for worry at a middle or older age bracket but fortunately, in most adolescent boys, it is expected to subside naturally within a few years timeframe, provided it’s not due to obesity.

As the advanced technology has for almost everything else, it has also evolved promising results in this domain as well.
