Unilateral Gynecomastia

Unilateral gynecomastia, also known as “one-sided” breast enlargement, can vary from patient to patient. The benign growth can be either small or large, making a man’s chest look less masculine and more feminine-like in appearance. 

Are you looking for a solution to treat asymmetrical man boobs?

Your disease is referred to as unilateral gynecomastia if one of your breasts is bigger than the other. You will need to choose Unilateral gynecomastia surgery to get the flat, firm, and gorgeous chest you’ve always desired, even if the contours of the breasts are typically not much different in this situation.


A significant drop in the amount of testosterone relative to oestrogen is one of the frequent causes of the emergence of uneven male breasts, even though the majority of instances are either idiopathic or connected to drugs. It has been shown that males between the ages of 50 and 60 are more likely than those in the younger age range to experience asymmetrical gynecomastia. Drug therapy, aging-related hormonal changes, hepatic failure, renal failure, tumours, drug misuse, etc. are some more causes.

Symptoms of UNILATERAL gynecomastia

The first symptom of unilateral gynecomastia may be fatty tissue lumps under one nipple, and these lumps can sometimes be sore or tender. In some cases, the individual may experience pain in the affected chest area.
Gynecomastia is a cause of concern not only because it affects the appearance of the chest but it may also indicate cancer. Although gynecomastia does not necessarily have to be a sign of cancer, the doctor may run a few tests to rule it out entirely.



Dr. Manwani will explain the process to you after determining the type of gynecomastia you have. The two main types of breast tissues are fatty tissues, which are soft, and glandular tissues, which are dense and solid.

Everybody has a different ratio of these two tissues. If there is too much fatty tissue, liposuction may be necessary; however, if there is too much glandular tissue, it can be surgically excised with a scalpel. In some cases, combining the two operations is necessary to address unilateral gynecomastia.



You will have soreness and stiffness following the unilateral gynecomastia procedure. Because the surgery’s results are immediate, you can have transient scars.

You must consume wholesome foods and get enough rest. Avoid using tobacco and drinking alcohol. Maintain cleanliness. Additionally, it’s crucial to refrain from any strenuous exercise. Lay down in a good sleeping position, mainly upright.

The need for more visits will arise. Dr. Manwani will monitor your progress and make recommendations for lifestyle modifications as necessary. You must be patient with the changes and keep in mind that the improvement will come slowly but steadily.
