Gynecomastia is a condition where males develop an excess of breast tissue. This often occurs during puberty and may be related to a hormonal imbalance. For those who have gynecomastia, there is male breast reduction surgery.
Gynecomastia can affect males of all walks of life and can occur at different ages. However, it is most commonly found in adolescent boys, causing significant psychological distress.
Though most cases of pubertal gynecomastia resolve within two years, some of these cases require male breast reduction. This procedure involves surgically removing excess breast tissue from the chest to create a more even region.
