What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a very common physical condition that affects a large number of men in the U.S. Typically beginning in adolescence, gynecomastia is characterized by an excess of fat, skin, and/or glandular tissue in the area of the breasts, making them appear enlarged. About 40 to 60 percent of men are affected by gynecomastia and sometimes, gynecomastia resolves itself; however, in many cases, the condition will need treatment in order to recontour the area.
Gynecomastia can have serious effects on one’s self-esteem. Treatments such as male breast reduction can effectively reduce excess fat and tissue in the breast area for a more contoured appearance. Effective treatment for gynecomastia can help men feel better about their appearance after removing their shirts, running, and working out in the gym.
