What is Gynecomastia?
During infancy and puberty, some boys develop enlarged breasts. This is a normal response to hormonal changes in the body, such as the relative rise of estrogens (female hormones) in comparison to androgens (male hormones). Typically, the issue is resolved before the child reaches adulthood, but some continue having enlarged breasts (one or both). In some cases, this condition occurs because of genetics, obesity or other factors. Gynecomastia that is also known as pseudogynecomastia or lipomastia, is an issue linked to fat deposits in the breast areas of a man. The condition cannot be cured and no amount of dieting and exercise will help. However, it can be treated surgically with gynecomastia surgery that reduces the excess breast tissue to contour a man’s chest.
