What Causes Gynecomastia ?

Hormonal Imbalance

Gynecomastia can be caused by an imbalance between the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen. Estrogen causes breast tissue to grow. All men produce estrogen, but they usually have much higher levels of testosterone, which prevents estrogen from causing breast tissue to grow. If the balance of hormones in the body changes, this can cause a man’s breasts to grow.


Being overweight is one of the most well-known causes of gynecomastia. It increases estrogen levels, which causes breast tissue to grow. If a person is overweight, he’s more likely to have more fat, which can enlarge his breast tissue.


During puberty, men’s hormone levels can change. If testosterone levels drop, estrogen can cause breast tissue to grow. Adolescent gynecomastia usually resolves as the adolescent grows up and his hormone levels become more stable.


Men produce less testosterone as they age. Changes in hormone levels may cause breast tissue to grow.

How Is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?


Anesthetics are administered during surgical procedures.Various anesthesia options include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. The doctor will recommend the most suitable option for the patient.

Liposuction Technique

In cases where gynecomastia is mainly the result of excess adipose tissue, liposuction techniques that require the insertion of a cannula, a thin, hollow tube, through several small incisions in a controlled motion may be used to remove the excess fat. The most appropriate technique for the patient’s condition will be defined prior to surgery.

Excision Technique

Excision techniques are recommended in cases where glandular breast tissue or excess skin needs to be removed to resize the gynecomastia. Excision is also required if the areola is to be reduced or the nipple is to be repositioned to a more natural contour.

You can find out what you wonder about gynecomastia below. 👇

Breasts are palpated. A breast tissue with the size of a hazelnut can be noticed inside the breast. These symptoms should be confirmed by an ultrasonography, which will allow the surgeon to plan the treatment.

Medically, there are 3 types: Lipomatous, glandular, mixed.

In lipomatous gynecomastia, adipose tissue grows and forms sagging on the skin, while in glandular gynecomastia, only breast tissue grows. Mixed gynecomastia is a condition in which both lipomatous and glandular lesions are seen.

If you have no medical condition such as cancer or hormonal disorder, your breast does not grow because most of the breast tissue is removed.

If the surgery is performed only with liposuction, there will be no scar.  If the surgeon has to make a small incision under the nipple, there will be a millimetric scar which is hardly noticeable.

It can be performed when puberty ends at age 17 or 18. It’s not recommended for patients under the age of 18.

Gynecomastia operation is performed with a small incision. Therefore, you can resume your social activities the day after the operation.
