What Is Gynecomastia?

Published on March 3, 2017

You have probably heard the term “man boobs” used to describe large male breasts. Usually, these enlarged breasts are a result of excess fat in the area and can be resolved with diet and exercise. In some cases, the underlying issue is a condition known as gynecomastia, which causes enlarged breasts that cannot be made smaller through normal means.

Men who suffer from gynecomastia have an excess amount of glandular tissue in their breasts. Excess fat can exacerbate the issue but is not the primary cause. The only way to reduce the size of male breasts with gynecomastia is to surgically remove the excess tissue to create a flatter and more masculine chest.

If you are suffering from gynecomastia, contact Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeons to schedule a consultation for your male breast reduction. One of our board-certified plastic surgeons can provide you with the chest reshaping you need.
