Gynaecomastia

FAQs

Gynaecomastia or male breasts reduction surgery is a procedure to sculpt male chest. Gynaecomastia is a condition in which there is development of female like breast in males because of hormonal changes. Male develops both gland and fat around chest which has to be removed by excision of gland and liposuction.

Dr. Chugh’s unique approach involves two small incisions on lateral side of chest avoiding any scars in front of the chest. Use of new technologies like VASER allows to avoid that scar in front of chest and also better redraping of skin once gland and fat are removed.

VASER is a technology which uses ultrasonic waves to liquefy the fat, therefore enabling its easy removal. It helps in faster recovery as there is less bruising, less swelling and less pain after the surgery. Also due to its heating effect it remodels collagen which helps in better skin retraction.

A suitable candidate is of good health, is conscious of self -image, embarrassed to take shirt out in public for swimming etc. and has realistic expectations. It can range from just having puffy nipples to enlarged chest gland and fat.

Depending on the grades of gynaecomastia, the procedure can be performed under general or local anaesthesia. If it is puffy nipples, the surgery can be done in local anaesthesia and you can go home after an hour or two of observation, but larger grades of gynaecomastia should be done under General anaesthesia to ensure patient safety and also results. It generally takes 1-2 hours and you can return home by evening.

The method we use ensures that there are no tell- tale signs of surgery as incisions are not placed in front of chest and are less than 0.5 mm. Although in some cases like bodybuilders, history of steroid intake there might be an additional incision in the areola to take gland out. It is placed at the junction of nipple and areola so they heal well.

Numbing solution is given through those small incisions which takes care of pain. Also depending on your pain threshold analgesics are prescribed after the procedure.
