GIT (Gynecomastia in Teenagers) Part - 2 Why Teenagers Need Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia is a condition where enlargement of breasts occurs in boys or men. This situation may cause embarrassment in front of others that can affect your emotional health.

Gynecomastia develops because of hormonal imbalance. It can develop at any age. Side effects of various medications and drugs are also responsible for increasing breast tissue.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Amit Gupta first examines the patient thoroughly and then classifies the size of breast tissue under the grades of gynecomastia.

• Grade 1 small enlargement with slight swelling around the areola.
• Grade 2 moderate enlargement which expands the chest’s width with extra skin
• Grade 3 large breast tissue with extra skin over the chest that gives the appearance of the female breast.

Dr. Amit Gupta takes 35-40 minutes to perform gynecomastia surgery under local or general anesthesia.

In Divine Cosmetic Surgery, the patient can go home on the same day after the surgery.
The average time of gynecomastia surgery recovery is 3-4 months. During this period Dr. Amit Gupta gives the instructions that must be followed by the patient to recover fast.

• Patients should avoid heavy exercise for up to one week.
• A compression garment should wear for 16-18 hours a day till the final result
• After a one-week chest massage must start to maintain the chest shape.

Gynecomastia surgery is a major and important investment for the patient that gives permanent results. And if performed under a board-certified and experienced surgeon then the return on investment can boost your self-confidence and improves your emotional health.


Gynecomastia surgery is very safe when performed under a board-certified surgeon. The risks are generally the same as other surgeries. Some of gynecomastia surgery side effects are as follow: -

• Bleeding may occur after surgery in some patients when they do not follow proper instructions given by the surgeon. Under the local anesthesia, bleeding will be drained by Dr. Amit Gupta and this prevents further bleeding.
• Infection may happen in some cases but that can be treated by antibiotic tablets or cream. The infection will not affect the recovery process.
• Seroma that is the collection of fluid under the skin may develop after the surgery cause’s improper shape. If the patient notices seroma then it should be treated immediately.
• Nipple damage is normal when the loose skin is lifted by the surgeon. Patients with grade 3 gynecomastia are at the risk of nipple damage.

Dr. Amit Gupta always discusses the risks and complications with their patients before the surgery. And takes care of his patients after the surgery as well.
