Gynecomastia is a medical condition that originates from the Greek words for “women-like breasts.” It is a condition that affects men of all ages, resulting in enlarged breast glands and excess tissue. Although certain drugs and medical conditions may cause or contribute to breast enlargement in men, a large percentage of cases come from unknown sources, and can be very difficult to treat through exercise or dieting.
Men who feel self-conscious about their enlarged breasts should not hesitate to seek breast-reduction surgery, as it can be highly embarrassing as well as physically uncomfortable.
Enlarged male breasts can be reduced by Liposuction and/or by cutting out excess glandular tissue. For the removal of excess fatty tissue alone, Liposuction may be all that is needed; in such cases, scars will be small and barely visible.
Results are permanent, although subsequent obesity can regenerate a Gynecomastia-like effect.
