Understand Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, or ‘gyno,’ is the development of excess breast gland tissue in men. Although there are a variety of contributing factors, it often is a result of hormonal imbalance. This imbalance is generally between estrogen and testosterone.

  • Excess of Estrogen
  • Lack of Testosterone
  • Combination of Both

This imbalance can occur due to factors like puberty, aging, certain medications, health conditions, substance abuse, or nutritional imbalances. Treatment depends on the underlying cause and severity, which can range to surgical intervention.

Even though it is not a dangerous condition, it may be painful and very often causes significant embarrassment and psychological distress. Therefore, almost all men suffering from it prioritize seeking treatment.

Gynecomastia Stages

Not all gynecomastia is the same. Four stages range in severity from grade 1 (mild) to grade 4 (severe). Each stage has several characteristics that distinguish it from the other grades. The treatments for each grade also differ, with stage 4 treatment requiring a very different surgical approach in comparison to stage 1.

  • Grade 1: small growth without excess skin
  • Grade 2: moderate growth without excess skin
  • Grade 3: moderate growth with excess skin
  • Grade 4: significant growth with excess skin

Pseudogynecomastia

While true gynecomastia is due to excess breast gland tissue, there is often also extra fatty tissue associated with gynecomastia.

When there is only extra fatty tissue but no extra gland tissue, this is referred to as pseudogynecomastia.

This second condition is ‘pseudo’ because it’s not actually breast gland gynecomastia. Instead, it’s simply the build-up of excess chest fat.

Pseudogynecomastia may superficially resemble gynecomastia and still cause “man boobs”, but since it’s merely fat, it can sometimes be improved with lifestyle changes.

However, it often can persist, and surgical treatment primarily with liposuction is often indicated.

It should be noted that for many cases of gynecomastia, there is both extra gland tissue and extra fatty tissue. A surgical procedure will resolve both of these issues if that is the case.

The surgery involves both excising the extra breast gland tissue, as well as liposuction of the extra fatty tissue. To better understand what is causing your gynecomastia, be sure to schedule a visit at the New Jersey Gynecomastia Center to talk through potential solutions.
