Gynecomastia is often an inherited condition that cannot be improved without surgery. The condition can often be corrected with liposuction by making a small incision under the nipple. You'll probably feel some pain when you wake up, especially if you cough, and you will likely have a few days or weeks of breast tenderness. You will have to wear a surgical garment for a week, and you should avoid any jarring exercise for at least one month. Your surgeon may insert drains to siphon off any excess fluid, and there will likely be more bleeding on the first day. Although you'll know how your breasts will look within three weeks or so, they won't take on their ultimate shape for several months. I suggest making an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

Treatment should be available. You need to visit a local plastic surgeon to answer all of your questions after an examination.

If there is some gland the liposuction only will be not enough, you need to remove the gland also. This can be done with a traditional technique, or with a minimal incision technique, check my article on the “Round o’clock technique “for gynecomastia .

Liposuction cannot remove the gland component so the ideal way to deal with gynaecomastia is liposuction and gland removal. Yes, the treatment is available in India.
