GYNECOMASTIA FOR MEN

by one of the best plastic surgeons in Kyiv - Andrei Kharkov

Gynecomastia in men is the growth of the mammary glands. It happens of a different nature – false or true. True is characterized by an increase in breast tissue, and the false one is provoked by obesity, due to which the mammary glands increase their volume, due to significant deposits of adipose tissue. Formation of gynecomastia – the appearance of seals in the tissues of the thoracic glands. Such a fibro-abiogenic tissue of high density often causes pain in touch, due to the rapid growth of the glandular tissue. Gynecomastia can develop at different ages – from the first months of life to the mature age. Its occurrence is provoked by the hormonal imbalance, accompanied by an increase in the level of female sex hormones or a decrease in the male. Often, the phenomenon is not anxiety and passes without external intervention, but there are situations where disturbance of the hormonal background requires constant observation and treatment. It can provoke the formation of cancerous tumors, so the removal of gynecomastia will be the only true solution.

REHABILITATION PERIOD:  3-4 weeks

CAUSES OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF GYNECOMASTIA. TREATMENT

Speaking of true gynecomastia, it arises because of the predominance of male sex hormones in the male body. With a healthy hormonal background, female hormones are produced in small quantities, breaking down in the liver. But, if their number is increased in comparison with male sex hormones, gynecomastia develops. Most often, the hormonal imbalance arises in the development of the endocrine system.

Physiological gynecomastia of infants disappears after a couple of weeks after birth, gynecomastia in adolescents is provoked by the restructuring of the hormonal background and is leveled independently in a couple of years; in men it arises on the background of lowering the level of testosterone or increasing estrogen at  the age of 55 to 85 years.

Physiological gynecomastia does not require surgical intervention. But when speaking about gynecomastia  as a form of pathology only an experienced specialist can help. “Removal of gynecomastia Kiev” – a frequent online request in the case where the cause of the occurrence of the pathology are:

  • testicular disease;
  • oncology of adrenal glands;
  • infectious diseases, HIV, tuberculosis;
  • mechanical trauma of testicles;
  • cirrhosis
  • diabetes mellitus;
  • diseases of the cardiovascular system.

In addition, the development of gynecomastia may also be caused by prolonged intake of a number of medicines and narcotic substances.

Ignoring gynecomastia can lead not only to physiological discomfort, but also to the development of breast cancer. If there is a discharge with impurities of blood from the nipples, visual changes in the skin, it is immediately necessary to consult a doctor.

The initial diagnosis is put by the endocrinologist, based on the description of the patient’s problem, his examination and palpation. In order to confirm the problem, the ultrasound of the mammary glands as well as the lymph nodes, is prescribed. An examination is also carried out to detect hormonal imbalance by measuring the concentration of testosterone, prolactin, and so on. If during such an analysis a high level of estradiol is detected, an examination for the presence of a cancerous tumor is prescribed.

Treatment of gynecomastia is more likely to begin with the use  of appropriate drugs to restore the patient’s hormonal background. If there is no positive dynamics, surgical intervention is recommended, which can be done in several ways:

  • Endoscopic mastectomy with slight enlargements of the mammary gland;
  • Mastectomy while maintaining Areola;
  • Mastectomy with liposuction to remove excess fat tissue.
