Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the enlargement of the breast tissue in boys or men. It is usually caused by an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone, which can occur naturally or due to certain medications or health problems. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly, and can cause pain, tenderness, or embarrassment. Gynecomastia is not a serious health problem, but it may affect your self-esteem and emotional well-being.


A gynecomastia procedure is a type of surgery that removes the excess breast tissue and fat from the chest area. The surgery can be done with liposuction, which uses a thin tube to suck out the fat, or with excision, which involves cutting out the glandular tissue. Sometimes, both methods are used. The surgery can also reshape the nipples and areolas if they are enlarged or stretched. The surgery is usually done under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep and not feel any pain. The surgery can take from one to three hours, depending on the extent of the correction.


Gynecomastia recovery varies depending on the type and extent of the surgery. You may have some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for a few days or weeks after the surgery. You will need to wear a compression garment or bandage to support the healing tissues and reduce swelling. You may also need to take painkillers and antibiotics to prevent infection. You will be advised to avoid strenuous activities, such as lifting heavy objects or exercising, for about four to six weeks.

You should also avoid smoking and alcohol, as they can interfere with the healing process. You will have some scars on your chest, but they will fade over time and become less noticeable. You will be able to see the results of the surgery after the swelling goes down, usually within a few months.


You may be the right candidate for a gynecomastia procedure if you have enlarged breasts that make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable. You should also be in good physical and mental health, have realistic expectations, and be willing to follow the surgeon's instructions. You should not have any medical conditions that could affect the surgery or the healing, such as bleeding disorders, heart problems, or diabetes.

You should also not be overweight or obese, as this can increase the risk of complications and affect the outcome of the surgery. You should consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for a gynecomastia procedure.

Gynecomastia can be caused by natural changes in hormone levels, such as during puberty, aging, or weight gain. It can also be caused by certain medications, such as steroids, anti-androgens, or some drugs for cancer, heart disease, or HIV. Some health problems, such as liver disease, kidney failure, or tumors, can also affect hormone levels and cause gynecomastia. In some cases, the cause of gynecomastia is unknown.

At Ciplastic, the starting cost for a Gynecomastia procedure is $2,200 usd. Your final cost will depend on your specific individual needs.

Gynecomastia may go away on its own if it is due to temporary hormonal changes, such as during puberty or weight loss. This may take from six months to two years. However, if gynecomastia is due to persistent hormonal imbalance, medication, or health problems, it may not go away without treatment. If gynecomastia bothers you or causes pain, you may want to consider a gynecomastia procedure to remove the excess breast tissue and improve your appearance and confidence.

A Gynecomastia procedure is generally safe and effective, but like any surgery, it has some risks and complications. These may include bleeding, infection, hematoma, seroma, scarring, asymmetry, contour irregularities, nipple or areola damage, loss of sensation, skin discoloration, allergic reaction, anesthesia risks, and dissatisfaction with the results. You can reduce the risk of complications by choosing a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, following the preoperative and postoperative instructions, and reporting any problems or concerns to your surgeon.
