What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition in men that causes the size of the breasts to be larger than normal. It results from the enlargement of glandular tissues in the breasts due to a hormonal imbalance. For men with gynecomastia, there are higher levels of estrogen (female hormones) compared to the level of androgens (male hormones). The condition often occurs in infancy and during puberty but usually resolve on its own. However, there are times when gynecomastia carries on through adulthood.
For those who suffer from gynecomastia during adulthood, the results can lead to decrease self-esteem. Not many men are willing to be seen without a shirt and may refrain from enjoying the beach or pool, playing sports or changing inside locker rooms with friends. They may feel outcasted and even their intrapersonal relationships may suffer.

Men who are struggling with gynecomastia can enjoy a more masculine-looking chest and end the embarrassment associated with “man boobs” once corrected with surgery.
Gynecomastia surgery is a safe and simple procedure that reduces the size of male breasts by removing excess breast tissue and fat. Depending on the patient’s individual needs, gynecomastia correction surgery can either be performed in an outpatient or hospital setting
Losing Weight Will Not Get Rid of Man Boobs
Thinking the condition may be the result of weight gain or excessive fat, many men who suffer from gynecomastia may turn to diet or exercise, only to see no changes in the size of their breasts. At this point, many men just give up, thinking they have to accept their fate and move on, but there is a solution to gynecomastia. Instead of dealing with the problem, the condition can be corrected quickly through male breast reduction surgery.
