Gynecomastia is a procedure that removes fat and /or glandular tissue from the breasts and, in extreme cases, removes excess skin resulting in a contoured chest that is flatter and firmer.
Enlarged breasts on young boys typically last only a few years and generally resolved by age 18. Enlarged breasts on a man, however, can be uncomfortable, as well as socially and psychologically devastating. Gynecomastia affects approximately 40-60% of men. There is no known cause for gynecomastia, although there has been some correlation with various drugs or medical conditions. It can be associated with obesity, hormonal metabolism imbalance, liver disease or medical causes. Prior to choosing a surgical solution for gynecomastia, a period of diet and exercise is recommended.
