Pseudo means false and gynecomastia is an abnormal enlargement of male breast which can happen in the ages between 16 till old
There is a misconception, and many people don't know which is a true gynecomastia or which is just the fatty enlargement of breast. Well the true gynecomastia will have only a Glandular hard tissue mostly beneath the nipple areola and sometimes has some fat around the chest as well. On the other hand the pseudo gynecomastia will only be the deposition of fat. The surgical management of both kind of gynecomastia is different. If there is only fat than it can be taken out without excision through liposuction. If it is true gynecomastia than both Liposuction and the excision of the hard tissue is needed. In early ages the excision is made through big incisions and sutures are performed but now a days it's a day care procedure and no stitching is required if only liposuction is done. Pseudo gynecomastia can also be corrected through some hard work out and gym,. but true Gynocomastia requires a surgical procedure. Cosmetic surgery has done wonders and made things easier for better looking.
