If your one breast is larger than the other, then the condition you are facing is known as Unilateral Gynecomastia. Usually, the shapes of the breasts in this case are not severely different, but there is a considerable size distinction and hence, you will need to opt for the Unilateral gynecomastia surgery in order to achieve that flat, firm and fabulous chest you always wanted.

Although most cases are either idiopathic or related to medications, one of the typical reasons behind the occurrence of uneven male breasts is a major decrease in the level of testosterone in comparison with estrogen. It has been observed that men in the age gap of 50-60 years tend to develop the condition of asymmetrical gynecomastia than the ones in the younger age range. Another set of reasons include drug therapies, hormonal changes associated with aging, liver failure, renal failure, tumours, drug abuse, etc.

There is a high risk of breast cancer development in gynecomastia patients and hence, it is important for the Plastic surgeon to evaluate the case very carefully before preparing the treatment plan. He/ she will also need to identify any primary disorder associated with the key issue. Well, with the advent of technology, now it is possible to treat the issue of Asymmetrical Gynecomastia through the surgery. However, it is also important to support troubled men in terms of helping them cop-up with the psychological trauma behind it and overcome it. This surgery works on the targeted area, making the man’s chest firmer, tighter and masculine.


After evaluating the Type of Gynecomastia you are suffering with, your plastic surgeon will help you understand the procedure. Generally, the breast tissues are categorized into two kinds – Glandular tissues, which are dense and firm and Fatty tissues, which are soft.

The ratio of these both tissues varies from person to person. If the fatty tissue is excessive,Liposuction may be needed whereas if the glandular tissue is overboard then the excess of it can be surgically removed with a scalpel. At times, a combination of both surgeries may be required to treat Unilateral Gynecomastia.
