Gynecomastia: Understanding Male Breast Enlargement (men boobs)

Gynecomastia is enlargement of the male breast tissues (also known as men boob), which may cause it to look like a woman’s breast or have pointed nipples. These are physical features that many men may not like, as pointed nipples, especially, can be evident even when wearing a shirt.Gynecomastia may be embarrassing and can be a source of great insecurity, but surgical interventions can help reduce the appearance of enlarged male breasts.

Gynecomastia Causes

  • Gynecomastia in teenagers – Breast tissue growth happens in men (men boobs) during three stages in the life span of an individual and they are infancy, adolescence and old age. When teenagers go through puberty and becomes sexually mature, there are a lot of hormonal changes including estrogen dominance for some time and this can cause development of breast tissue. Not all boys going through puberty will experience this but estimated 50% may develop breast tissue growth. This called pubertal or teenage gynecomastia.
  • Gynecomastia in adults – Men who are significantly overweight are very likely to feel some enlargement of their breast tissue. This is partly caused by fat tissue under the skin on the chest wall, and partly by true breast glandular tissue. Fat tissue anywhere in the body encourages formation of estrogen, and thus can lead to gynecomastia.
  • Medical conditions – there are certain medical conditions that may also cause Gynecomastia including :

1. Hyperthyroidism 2. Klinefelter syndrome 3. Kidney disease 4. Malnutrition 5. Liver disease

  • Medications – Certain medicines can also cause Gynecomastia, medication like :

1. Antibiotics

2. Heart medicines

3. Anti-anxiety drugs

4. AIDS treatments

5. Tricyclic antidepressants

6. Chemotherapy

7. Drugs that treat heartburn

  • Foods – some foods naturally contain high levels of phytoestrogens, chemicals which closely mimic estrogen and can ‘trick’ the breast tissue into growing in response. Some foods contain high levels of phytoestrogens include :
    1. Flax and sesame seeds
    2. Soy milk and tofu
    3. Cereals and dread containing flax seeds
    4. Process foods
    5. Legumes
    6. Dried fruits

Gynecomastia Treatment

Gynecomastia Treatment : Most men don’t need treatment for gynecomastia, if the problem is caused by puberty. As most cases will go away on their own. Early treatment is advice, like weight loss and stopping of medication that might cause the problem. There are also medications that men can try to reduce the swelling of their breast tissue. If early treatment and medication does not work then male breast reduction surgery might be suggested.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia may not be a serious problem, but it can cause emotional discomfort, embarrassment and impair self-confidence. To avoid these situations some men choose to undergo breast reduction surgery to remove the breast tissue. The type of surgery the surgeon will recommend will be based on his evaluation. The surgery is usually carried out by a plastic surgeon and done it in an outpatient visit. Male breast reduction with tissue excision is usually performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation as an outpatient.

Proper investigations and evaluation are needed to work out the cause of enlarged breast tissue, these include the following :

  • Physical examination
  • Blood tests
  • Ultrasound scan of the breast tissue
  • Other scans like MRI of the breast area

Preparation for gynecomastia surgery in Thailand

Preparation for gynecomastia surgery (male chest reduction) in Thailand includings:

  • Lab tests – to check your health status and any pre-existing conditions or risk factors.
  • Stop certain medications for 1 week including aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and blood thinners, all of which can increase the risk for bleeding. Certain vitamin and herbal medicine like omega-3 fatty acids, gingko biloba and green tea may also increase bleeding risk.
  • Stop smoking and drinking alcohol prior to surgery.
  • Also avoid caffeine the day of the surgery, the numb medication we use have adrenaline that might increase heart rate. Caffeine might result in an adverse reaction of adrenaline, and heart rate may increase more.
  • Fasting of food and water for 6-8 hours on the day of the surgery.
  • Wear loose clothing on the day of the surgery for comfort. Because in some case patients have a tube attached to drain the excess blood or fluids and on top of the wound dressing you need to wear a compression garment to reduce the swelling and support the chest contour after surgery.

Gynecomastia Surgery (male chest reduction) FAQ

  • What Is The Cost Of Gynecomastia In Thailand Compared To Australia Or New Zealand?

I don’t know the exact cost of the Gynecomastia surgery in Australia and New Zealand, but I believe it’s still cheaper even when you combine the cost of surgery with the costs of airfares and accomodation. Thailand used to compete with other countries for medical tourism in term of cost but now its quality and standard are more important.

Cosmetic surgeons in Thailand have far more experience because they treat more patients than surgeons in Australia and New Zealand. Liposuction, for example in our Rattinan Clinic accommodates up to 600 cases per year. It would take an Australian surgeon 4-5 year to reach that level.

  • What Are The Risks Of Plastic And Cosmetic Surgery?

The major risk of cosmetic surgery is an unpleasant result and not being able to get another appointment to fix it by the same surgeon because the patient is travelling back home. Our advice is to choose the best surgeon with a good track record in terms of results as well as responsibility for after care. Or choose the treatment that has a high success rate such as liposuction or gynecomastia. Rhinoplasty, eye surgery is complex and follow up procedures are required more often than liposuction.

Mistakes for liposuction such as uneven skin might be a non-urgent issue because the patient can cover it with cloths while enjoying a better body shape. In addition, she can wait to return when she’s ready to fix it. On the other hand, nose and eye surgery are more difficult. Patients are unable to go to work and the requirement to fix any issues is extremely urgent.

  • Why Should I Have Gynecomastia Surgery In Thailand?

There are two reasons. The first is that it is likely to cost you less than the same procedure in Australia or New Zealand even if you include travel costs. The second is that cosmetic surgeons in Thailand are highly experienced and Bangkok in particular has some of the highest quality hospitals in the world.
