What is Male Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia can affect men of any body type and age, causing enlarged breast tissue, at times resembling women’s breasts. Gynecomastia can occur as a result of weight gain, hormones, certain drugs, or genes. This condition can affect self-confidence and body image.

Enlarged male breasts can either be gynecomastia or pseudo gynecomastia. Two types of tissue are found in breasts: fatty tissue and glandular tissue. Pseudogynecomastia is an excess of fatty tissue, which can be treated both surgically and non-surgically. Gynecomastia must be treated surgically.

Male gynecomastia surgery removes excess fat, skin, and tissue, helping to contour the male chest, leaving men with tighter upper bodies and a more proportional physique. The highly-experienced surgeons at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery use their surgical artistry to give you a natural, masculine chest. You can trust us to provide personalized, compassionate care.

Your surgeon will follow your progress, and you may resume regular, everyday activity once your chest is healed, typically within 4-6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Congratulations! When it comes to first-time pregnancy, there are plenty of lifestyle adjustments to make, physical changes to get acquainted with and extremely exciting milestones ahead for both you and your future baby! Thankfully, all things considered, you can comfortably scratch “having breast implants” from any list of concerns or at least two reasons: Getting pregnant, giving birth, and breastfeeding with breast implants are all entirely possible and all considered totally safe for both the baby and the mother. Secondly, if any changes were to occur that affected the cosmetic appearance of the breasts or the implants, they are quickly correctable after breastfeeding, at the earliest possible opportunity. These changes might include changes to the position of the implants in relation to the now-developed breasts, or to the firmness of your breasts. In most cases, the implants.


Breast augmentation patients planning to bear children often wonder if pregnancy will affect or even damage their implants. While pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding do cause the body to undergo tremendous natural shifts, every woman will experience these changes differently, and the changes often differ even from pregnancy to pregnancy for the same mother. Swelling of the breasts during pregnancy is natural, as is the volume loss that occurs after breastfeeding. For some, these fluctuations are dramatic while for others they are subtle.

In either case, the breast implants are not damaged and their structure and integrity hold throughout this exciting and life-changing time. The breasts play a central role in the transformative biological process of giving birth and as they pass through the many phases involved, the implants themselves are not affected or compromised.
