Gynecomastia is a term used to define the overdevelopment of male breasts, also called hypertrophy of the mammary glands in men or man boobs. This condition can occur at any age and be the result of hormonal changes, certain illness, family inheritance, use of some medications, drugs and obesity.
The excess development of the male mammary gland causes emotional stress in men as it is a situation that cannot be controlled through diet or exercise. Men with gynecomastia lose their masculine appearance and generally avoid certain types of clothing, recreational or intimate activities out of shame for their condition.
Gynecomastia can be characterized by either localized excess fat, excess overdeveloped glandular tissue, and/or excess skin in the male breast tissue. Both breasts are usually affected, however, sometimes the condition can be unilateral.
The main objective of the correction surgery is to return the masculine aspect to the man’s chest. It will depend on the amount of the type of excess tissue that is causing gynecomastia. Generally the approach is to remove the excess fatty tissue along with the extraction of the male mammary gland to achieve this. In some more extreme cases there will be a discussion of the need to also remove excess skin from the chest in order to achieve the desired look.
