Gynaecomastia Surgery in Gurgaon is one of the most commonly requested surgeries, that Plastic Surgeons in Gurgaon come across on a daily basis. Gynaecomastia is a condition, which is characterized by enlargement of the male breast, caused due to an imbalance of sex hormones. The increased swelling in one or both breasts is the reason, that causes a cosmetic deformity in the affected males. This can be a cause of grave psychological imbalance as this goes against the classic body image of what it means to be a male.
Besides being embarrassed about their physical deformity, people suffering from this problem also sometimes complain of pain in their breasts, which many times is the reason, they opt for Gynaecomastia Surgery in Gurgaon. However, Plastic Surgeons in Gurgaon, before deciding on the final course of action, take into consideration many different factors. Some of these are – age of the patient (baby, teenager, old man), associated addictions (Smoking, alcohol, drug abuse), medicinal use and/or allergy, functional status of other organ systems and other symptoms if present.
As previously mentioned, Gynaecomastia occurs when the testosterone hormone (which controls male body characteristics like – body hairs and muscle mass) decreases in compared to estrogen (which controls the female characteristics). Now a normal male produces both testosterone and estrogen (although in much lesser quantity). When the ratio of testosterone to estrogen becomes less than normal, then conditions like Gynaecomastia is produced. Hence before undertaking Gynaecomastia Surgery, Plastic Surgeons in Gurgaon evaluating the case have to first ascertain the cause of this hormonal imbalance.
The most common cause of manifestation of Gynaecomastia is because of natural hormonal changes that occur in males during – infancy, puberty, and men approaching old age. Although in these age groups, the Gynaecomastia is due to the natural change of hormonal levels but gynaecomastia can occur due to some other reasons too, which are not normal. Plastic Surgeons in Gurgaon, who are treating and planning to go forward with any Gynaecomastia Surgery in Gurgaon, have to first exclude the presence of any pathology, that may produce Gynaecomastia as a secondary manifestation.
Gynaecomastia can be produced due to the side effects of many medications. Some of these are – certain medications used to treat prostatic enlargement in men, anabolic steroids and androgens, anti-anxiety medications, antidepressants, medications for heart diseases, selected antibiotics, medications used for treating cancers & HIV. Plastic Surgeons in Gurgaon has to ask the patient regarding the history of intake of any of these medications.
Patients interested in having Gynaecomastia Surgery in Gurgaon should also be asked about their other addictions, such as the habit of taking – alcohol, smoking or using other drugs like (Heroine, Amphetamines, Marijuana, Methadone). Tumors of testes or adrenal gland or the pituitary gland can also alter the male-female hormonal balance, which can cause Gynaecomastia. Decreased function of the testis (hypogonadism), increased the production of thyroxine hormone by the thyroid in hyperthyroidism, Kidney failure, Liver failure (and cirrhosis), malnutrition or starvation; are some other pathological (not normal) causes which can produce Gynaecomastia.
Plastic Surgeons in Gurgaon are quite often asked the question if there is any way that is available, by which the chances of development of Gynaecomastia can be minimized. The answer to that is that the chances of development of Gynaecomastia can be reduced to a certain extent by making healthy life choices. Illegal drugs like – anabolic steroids, marijuana, heroin, and amphetamines should be totally avoided.
An attempt should be made to ensure that the intake of alcohol should be also stopped totally. If medications are being taken for some health problems, they should be only taken under medical supervision. If any kind of side effects to these medications develop, it should be informed to the doctor immediately. In many situations, the treating physician may choose to change the medications in cases like these.
Most of the patients undergoing Gynaecomastia Surgery in Gurgaon may have to undergo some diagnostic investigations before undertaking the surgical procedure. These would be certain blood tests, ECG and X-ray chest (for anesthesia purpose). In rare situations, a doubtful tumor mass (which may look like breast cancer) may need – FNAC, Ultrasound of the breast and Mammography. Only after going through the reports of these studies, a Plastic Surgeon in Gurgaon decides on the course of further treatment.
Many Plastic Surgeons receive inquiry over phone or email, with patients asking about the price of surgery of Gynaecomastia (or any other surgery). Here it would be prudent to mention, that many other conditions of the breasts like – excess of fat deposition, breast abscess and even the dangerous condition of breast cancer can sometimes be confused with Gynaecomastia, by people who are not medically trained. Further planning for Gynaecomastia Surgery in Gurgaon, without physically examining other organs of the human body, which may give rise to a secondary manifestation of Gynaecomastia, due to a primary disease located in some other part of the body, is inviting disaster.
Finally, even in an uncomplicated case of Gynaecomastia, Plastic Surgeons can plan the steps of surgery, only after physically examining a patient and local body parts. So, a final word of advice – Making a phone call is certainly a good idea, if you are interested in knowing the cost of a pizza. However, if you want Gynaecomastia Surgery in Gurgaon, meet your Plastic Surgeon in person and get yourself examined thoroughly. If you have any doubts in your mind, ask your doctor all the relevant questions, then only decide on the surgery, if you are convinced. Give your life the importance it deserves, your future self will thank you for your wisdom.
