Gynecomastia is the enlargement of breast gland tissue or accumulation of fat and skin in the area, often caused by hormonal imbalance.
Gynecomastia is generally painless and feels like a rubbery mass below the surface of the nipple. This issue can be either unilateral or bilateral. Although Gynecomastia is painless, sometimes tenderness or sensitivity can be observed in the affected region.
What are the
reasons for gynecomastia?
Every man has a breast tissue and because of the balance between testosterone and estrogen in the body, they don’t grow in size. Gynecomastia occurs when there is an excessive amount of estrogen in the male body. It can also occur when there is a reduction in testosterone in the body.
This issue can be observed in infants, in teenage boys as they hit puberty, and in older men. It can affect men of all age groups.
Issues like thyroid dysfunction, liver cirrhosis, kidney issues, etc can cause gynecomastia as well.
To fix gynecomastia with gynecomastia treatment or gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Santosh Bhatia believes in understanding the cause of the problem first.
Generally, gynecomastia can be classified in four grades depending upon the volume of the breast tissue and the skin elasticity.
- Grade 1 gynecomastia generally is breast enlargement without skin excess.
- Grade 2 has moderate breast enlargement without skin excess.
- Grade 3 generally has moderate breast enlargement with excess skin
- Grade 4 has marked breast enlargement with skin excess.
Dr. Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic in Mumbai explains that generally, the patients that come to him qualify as having Grade 1 and Grade 2 gynecomastia.
It is necessary to have a consultation with the doctor to understand the grade of the gynecomastia and then decide upon the gynecomastia treatment.
