What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia, is a common medical condition in which a man’s breasts become enlarged or over-developed. It is characterized by an excess of glandular tissue development, excess fat, and/or skin in one or both breasts. Although there is no precise cause known for this condition, there are many factors that potentially contribute to this condition, including:
• Weight loss or gain
• Hormonal changes
• Use of prescription drugs
• Liver malfunction
• Anabolic steroid use
For the majority of men, diet and exercise are not effective treatments for Gynecomastia. Those living with Gynecomastia often suffer from low self-esteem and feelings of discomfort and embarrassment during certain social and intimate activities.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has classified gynecomastia into 4 different grades based off of the following criteria:
- Size of breast tissue development
- Severity of the condition
- Feminization of the breast
What is gynecomastia Surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a plastic surgery technique that reduces the breast size in men and enhancing the chest contours. In some severe cases of gynecomastia, patients and doctors may opt to alter position and size of the areola in order to improve it’s appearance.
