How to Get Rid of Gynecomastia

Getting rid of gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, also known as swollen breast tissue in males, stands as the most prevalent male breast disorder. This enlargement of breast tissue often arises due to hormonal imbalances. Interestingly, in some young men experiencing pre-puberty or puberty, the occurrence of “man boobs” can be entirely normal. In such cases, the condition typically resolves over time as sex hormones regulate and balance out.

On the other hand, some patients with gynecomastia may struggle with this condition for many years past puberty. It is sometimes related to certain hormonal changes, medications or other health conditions, but the cause can also be unknown.

Candidates for surgery must be in good overall physical health. Some individuals may struggle with gynecomastia in just one breast, but it is usually present in both breasts. The diagnosis of gynecomastia is often made alongside the presence of a firm mound of excess tissue itself, which is palpable beneath the patient’s nipple and is usually shaped like a disc.


There are various techniques used to remove excess breast tissue. Sometimes, only liposuction is necessary. However, many procedures necessitate an incision made around each areola and one made below each breast. The excess breast tissue and fat around breast area is then removed, and the incisions are closed. Occasionally, the areolas may need to be resized and/or re positioned. Gynecomastia surgery recovery is usually between 4-6 weeks.
