    Enquiry Form

    We all do know that males and females both have breast glands. The breasts of the women add up to their personality, but that of the men does not look good. But due to the escalation of the feminine hormones, the breasts of the mal also tends to increase. And because of this reason, so many treatment options have been made available by medical science. So you will be glad to know that gynecomastia surgery in Punjab is available at cost-effective ranges.

    • Can gynecomastia cause any threat to other organs?

    No, not at all. Gynecomastia is not at all the problem that can perfect the other organs of the body. Rather it is not a problem in itself if we overlook the cosmetic reasons. Only the males who are particularly very conscious about their personality or looks take up gynecomastia surgery.

    • Which surgical options are used for gynecomastia?

    Following surgical options are used for curing the gynecomastia:

    • Liposuction

    Liposuction is the surgical technique that is performed to eliminate the additional fat tissue that is causing the breasts to get raised. For this, an incision of about 3 to 4 millimetre is made which helps in the extraction of the tissue.

    • Excision

    Excision is a technique that is used by many surgeons, but the cosmetic surgeons of the profile clinic do not take this technique into account since it is focused on extracting the entire tissue. The negative consequence of this option is that it causes scarring around the nipple which obviously will not at all look good when you are shirtless.

    • Which medical reasons will compel you to undertake the surgery?
    • The problem of gynecomastia does not generally require treatment. But if within two years, you have seen the continuous aggravation or progression of this problem, then it is to be treated.
    • Besides, if the breasts are getting tender along and you are experiencing this change, then it’s high time to visit the dermatologist who could guide you right.

    Then either the hormone regulation procedure or the breast reduction surgery will be accounted for the treatment.

    • What are the causes of gynecomastia?

    There are two causes for gynecomastia:

    • Imbalance of the hormones

    There are two types of hormones – estrogen and testosterone which are found in huge levels among females and males respectively. Estrogen causes the tissue of the bracelets to grow while the testosterone stops that. In cases, the estrogen levels shoot up among males, then it is the problem of gynecomastia.

    • Intake of the medications

    The male is habitual to take certain medications as mentioned:

    • Anabolic steroids
    • Unprescribed antibiotics
    • Chemotherapy
    • Herat problem curing drugs
    • How can the males know by themselves that something is wrong with their breasts?

    Merely with the help of the detailed physical examination, the males can know if they are bothered with gynecomastia or not.


    If you want to take up gynecomastia surgery, then consult the expert and the reputed dermatologists of the Profile clinic.
