Breast growth in men is surprisingly common and affects between 40 and 50% of men at some point in their lives. Gynecomastia, or the benign enlargement of breast tissue, is common in teenage males as well as middle-aged and older men. Most of the causes are often idiopathic although sometimes hormonal such as during puberty, drug-induced by estrogen-increasing medications or anabolic steroids or through diet and genetics. In adolescents, it is frequently a temporary but, if it becomes permanent, it often requires treatment.

Signs of Gynecomastia are excess breast tissue that may cause the breasts to appear puffy, or the weight may sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). This is a very prevalent issue, nearly 65 percent of 13 and 14-year-old boys experience some degree of breast enlargement due to the normal ups and downs of hormone levels in puberty, but the degree varies. 

Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self-confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.

The procedure depends on the severity but, the patients are under local anesthetic and the medications are administered for comfort during the surgical procedures. The next steps are liposuction and/or excision of the excess tissue. Once the tissue is removed then the incisions are sealed. Recovery tends to vary but within 2-3 days mild work can start back up.

At Signature Clinic we specialize in treating this issue. The sheer amount of patients booking this procedure makes this one of the most popular procedures we perform. Our surgeon Dr. Rohit Seth takes great pride in his ability to dramatically reduce the male breast tissue and give patients life-changing results. In December 2019 for instance, in one week we had 10 surgical gynecomastia cases and our patients were thrilled with their results!

With 2019 drawing to a close and the start of a brand new year on the horizon, now is a great time to achieve the results you are looking for!
