How to Treat a Severe Case of Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia or male breasts are a hormonal condition affecting a large percentage of the world’s male population. Many men are often seen struggling with a mild or prominent case of male breasts. While the milder ones are still not a stressing issue, the prominent appearance of breasts in severe cases makes men feel unhappy and immensely unconfident about their bodies.

Through this blog, Dr Rajat Gupta answers the recurring question on how to treat a severe case of gynecomastia.

Male breast reduction involves removing the excess tissue and breast gland for a flat chest with a natural-looking contour. In severe cases, more sophisticated technology is necessary for natural-looking results.

Devices Used to Treat Severe Cases

The two main devices used in treating prominent male breasts are MicroAire and VASER tools. MicroAire is power-assisted liposuction (PAL) tool, while VASER is an ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) tool. While MicroAire breaks up the breast gland, allowing for removal, VASER serves the dual purpose of tightening the skin.

VASER emits heat that shrinks and tightens the skin over the new chest contours. However, if there is more excess skin than VASER is equipped to handle, Dr Rajat Gupta uses BodyTite. This radiofrequency contouring technology produces more heat than VASER and tightens the skin better.

    Surgical Process on How to Treat a Severe Case of Gynecomastia

    Beginning with a 3-4mm lateral chest wall incision, your surgeon enters the breast gland with the MicroAire tool. The MicroAire tool is fitted with a power-assisted cannula that moves rapidly back and forth, breaking up the breast gland and tissue so it can be suctioned out.

    Since severe cases often include excess skin, Dr Rajat Gupta combines VASER’s UAL advantages and the advanced BodyTite radiofrequency technology at RG Aesthetics to effectively shrink and tighten this excess skin over the new pectoral contours. He avoids making an incision on the front of the chest, preventing the patient from facing any scar-related inhibitions. Finally, the patients are fitted with a compression garment that keeps your new contours in place.

    Full recovery after the treatment takes approximately 6-8 weeks. Most of the swelling and bruising reduces within the first 24-48 hours, and the results get more refined over the next 4 weeks. After 6-8 weeks, most patients can resume physical activity.

    This minimally invasive outpatient procedure ensures that you have a speedy and easy recovery.
