Gynecomastia Surgery Kuala Lumpur and Cost 2020

If you are looking for gynecomastia related information and treatment prices in KL (Malaysia), you are in the right place. 

Diagnosis of gynecomastia

Yes, men can have breasts too. Unfortunately, what looks great on women can be embarrassing for the opposite sex. Enlarged breasts are typically triggered by hormonal imbalances – when our bodies produce more oestrogen than testosterone.

While both female and male hormones occur naturally in our bodies, too much of the former can cause glandular tissue to be enlarged, resulting in unwanted breast development like man boobs. It can be made worse with fat deposits due to weight gain.

Readers and publishers tend to have problems differentiating between gynecomastia and male breast reduction.

When you are referring to 'Gynecomastia', you are referring to a medical condition. True gynecomastia is an enlargement of the male breast gland because of a hormonal imbalance, but the appearance of enlarged male breasts may be ascribed to pseudogynecomastia, a symptom of excess fat which deposits on the chest.

Gynecomastia can be medically treated or surgically treated. Reduction mammoplasty (male breast reduction surgery) is a surgical treatment that has been used in severe cases gynecomastia, long-term gynecomastia, or in cases in which drug therapies have not been effective to help restore a normal breast appearance. 
Gynecomastia surgery not only permanently removes excess glandular tissues, but it also sculpts the chest area, leaving a more defined and masculine appearance.
