What Men Need To Know About Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia surgeryMen can develop enlarged breasts for many reasons, and it may embarrass them or be uncomfortable. This problem is known as gynecomastia. Fortunately, there is a solution. Gynecomastia surgery can help reduce the excess breast tissue and help you reclaim your confidence. Here is what men need to know about gynecomastia.

What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition where men can develop excess breast tissue. This can begin before puberty, and for some men, carry on with them into adolescence. For other men, however, the condition may resolve itself as they enter adulthood.

Common Causes of Gynecomastia

There are actually many different potential reasons why a man may develop gynecomastia, with one of them being due to a hormonal imbalance. This happens when not enough testosterone is being produced by the body. Other common causes of gynecomastia include:

  • Weight gain
  • Side effects from certain medications
  • Anabolic steroid use

Men who developed this condition after 50 years of age can develop it due to a natural decrease in testosterone. Another common cause of gynecomastia can be those who have too much estrogen in their body, which can contribute to the development of gynecomastia.

Treatment Options

There are a few treatment options when it comes to reducing the appearance of gynecomastia. One of these treatment options is liposuction. Liposuction can remove unwanted and excess fat in the chest area to provide a more slim and masculine appearance. Another treatment option includes surgery, as this may be required in some cases of gynecomastia.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Good candidates for gynecomastia are those who have good general health and good skin elasticity. Other good candidates involve those with realistic expectations and who are close to their ideal weight.
