More About Treatment

Treatment of Gynecomastia

Pharmacologic Therapy
With the administration of clomiphene which is an antiestrogen, approximately 50% of patients achieve partial reduction in breast size, and approximately 20% of patients note complete resolution. Also, Tamoxifen which is an estrogen antagonist, is effective for recent-onset and tender gynecomastia.

Breast Surgery
Reduction mammoplasty is considered for patients with macromastia or long-standing gynecomastia or in persons in whom medical therapy has failed. It is also considered for cosmetic reasons. More extensive plastic surgery may be required in patients with marked gynecomastia or who have developed excessive sagging of the breast tissue due to weight loss.
