Is Gynecomastia Surgery Worth It?

shirtless man in good shapeGynecomastia is a medical condition which affects many men in the United States. Gynecomastia is the excessive growth or abnormal development of breast tissue, and this can cause confidence issues among men. Gynecomastia surgery can help remove fatty breast tissue and help you reclaim your confidence. 

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia generally starts to develop during puberty in most cases. The hormone fluctuations can produce excess estrogen which can cause the breast tissue to grow. Another common cause of gynecomastia can be rapid weight gain, as this will cause fat to develop in the breasts.

How Do I Know If I Have Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia typically occurs on both sides of the chest. You can do a test to see if you have gyno, but the best way to see is to have a professional perform an examination. 

You can do the test at home, and while this will not confirm it, you’ll be able to get an idea if you need to see a doctor or not. If you feel a hard round lump right under the center of the nipple, you may have gyno. A hard lump does not always mean gyno, so it is important to get checked out by a doctor. 

Is Gynecomastia Surgery Worth it?

Gynecomastia surgery will get rid of your gyno and can alleviate you from any discomfort you feel. Getting a gynecomastia diagnosis can also help uncover other underlying issues such as low testosterone and possibly breast cancer. Getting the surgery is worth it as it will help you regain your confidence and help you feel like you again.

Am I a Good Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

If you are self conscious about your chest and wear oversized t-shirts to hide your appearance due to excessive fatty tissue, you may be a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery. If you are in good general health and committed to healthy eating, you are also a good candidate for this surgery.
