All about Gynecomastia Aruba Plastic Surgery


Understanding and Treating Gynecomastia with Aruba Plastic Surgery

Gynecomastia, commonly referred to as ‘man boobs,’ is a condition that causes boys and men to develop enlarged breast tissue. It’s more than just a cosmetic concern; it can carry significant emotional weight, leading to self-consciousness and diminished self-esteem. At Aruba Plastic Surgery, we believe in transforming lives through compassionate and professional care. Here’s everything you need to know about gynecomastia and the path to reclaiming your confidence.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the enlargement of breast tissue in males, resulting from an imbalance between the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Estrogen causes breast tissue to grow, and when male estrogen levels are too high or out of balance with testosterone levels, breast tissue can swell. While it’s commonly associated with adolescent boys during puberty, it can affect men at any age.

Potential Causes Include:

  • Hormonal Imbalances: The primary cause of gynecomastia is an imbalance between estrogen and testosterone.
  • Medications: Certain drugs, including anabolic steroids, heart medicines, and anti-anxiety drugs, can lead to the development of gynecomastia.
  • Health Conditions: Liver or kidney disease, thyroid problems, and obesity can also contribute to its onset.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Alcohol abuse, recreational drug use, and diet can influence hormone levels, potentially leading to gynecomastia.

Diagnosing Gynecomastia

Diagnosis begins with a detailed medical history and physical examination. In some cases, blood tests or imaging studies such as mammograms or MRIs may be required to rule out other conditions.

Treatment at Aruba Plastic Surgery

Consultation and Personalized Care

Your journey starts with a one-on-one consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Patrick van der Linde. We’ll discuss your medical history, conduct a thorough examination, and talk about your goals and expectations.

Tailored Treatment Options

Treatment for gynecomastia may vary depending on the cause and extent of your condition. Our clinic offers the following options:

  • Medication: If your gynecomastia is recent and seems to be related to medication or hormonal changes, we may suggest medical therapy first.
  • Liposuction: This technique removes breast fat but not the breast gland tissue itself.
  • Mastectomy: This surgical procedure removes the tissue underneath the breast. For those with more significant gynecomastia, this may be the recommended approach.
