Get the Physique You Desire
with Male Breast Reduction Surgery
All men normally have a small amount vestigial breast tissue. Overgrowth of breast tissue is a surprisingly common problem in adolescent boys and older men. This is called gynecomastia. The condition arises from a number of causes including benign hormonal changes at puberty, as a side effect of certain medications, from endocrine (glandular) dysfunction, disease states that affect hormone balance, and chromosomal abnormalities. Most cases are not related to disease states and while breast cancer is a concern it is rare. Excess fat tissue in the breast area from being overweight is called pseudogynecomastia and is not breast tissue per se.
