What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition that develops in men that involves a buildup of fatty tissue and often times painful glandular tissue in the chest. Some common causes of gynecomastia can be fluctuations in hormones and men who have had significant changes in their weight. It is not uncommon for this condition to develop between the ages of 11 and 15 years old. This is typically the stage of puberty that causes hormonal activity. Gynecomastia can be difficult to address even with diet and exercise. To eliminate excess breast tissue, patients often turn to male breast reduction also know as gynecomastia treatment. With gynecomastia treatment, patients can achieve a slimmer, more masculine appearance and begin to feel more confident.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most individuals who develop gynecomastia during childhood or puberty find that goes away shortly after. However, if your gynecomastia continues or even develops in adulthood, it’s unlikely that it will go away by itself. For individuals at this stage, gynecomastia surgery is usually the best option.
Gynecomastia is caused by the enlargement of fatty tissue, not just the presence of fat. Gynecomastia may be firmer, lumpier and even sensitive to the touch. Fat, on the other hand, will be soft and painless, similar to fat in other areas of the body. Fat is also more responsive to changes in diet and exercise.
Gynecomastia surgery can be performed with a variety of anesthetic techniques, making the treatment completely painless. The only discomfort associated with gynecomastia surgery is the soreness and bruising that affects the treatment area after surgery. Patients are encouraged to rest as much as possible during recovery in order to aid the healing process and minimize pain.
Gynecomastia is caused by enlarged chest tissue, not fat, which makes it unresponsive to exercise and other fat loss strategies. If gynecomastia does not go away after puberty, surgery is typically the best option.
