What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a common condition that typically peaks during puberty. And while gynecomastia usually resolves itself with age, it can persist into adulthood and even worsen. When this is the case, gynecomastia rarely responds to lifestyle changes such as increased exercise and following a healthy diet.

Understanding Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, commonly referred to as “man boobs”, can occur in one or both breasts and is characterized by excess fat and glandular tissue around the breast. Most of the time, the fat is localized; however, in some more severe cases, the excess breast tissue can result in the breasts sagging or hanging downward. 

Common causes of gynecomastia include:

  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Genetics
  • Ongoing use of certain medications, including steroids and Risperdal
  • Weight fluctuations

Contour Your Chest With Gynecomastia Surgery

Male breast reduction is a fairly simple procedure. There are a few different methods to perform gynecomastia which is dependent on your individual body type and the amount of fatty tissue to be removed. Sometimes gynecomastia surgery can be as simple as just performing liposuction on the chest region. Other times, it is performed under general anesthesia in which a small incision is made under the arm or at the edge of the areola. This helps to keep scarring to a minimum. Through the incision, underlying fat and glandular tissue are removed. Any extra skin is excised before incision sites are closed.
