Many men suffer the embarrassment of “man boobs.” You are not alone! Rarely talked about, gynecomastia can occur in adolescent and in adult men. Statistics indicate that this condition affects 1 in 4 men over the age of 50.
Gynecomastia is a condition in which men develop excess tissue in the breast. Males affected with this condition may feel self-conscious about their appearance and limit the type of clothes they wear and activities they participate in. It should also be noted that gynecomastia does not mean that a man has excess fat deposits from being overweight. No matter the weight lost or the volume of exercise you do, a man with gynecomastia will NOT reduce the amount of excess breast tissue.
If you are a man who has large breasts or are concerned with sagging breast tissue, there is help. Dr. Prasad Sureddi, Board Certified plastic surgeon can reduce a man’s excess breast fat with breast reduction surgery and re-contour the skin to your chest with natural-looking results.* Liposuction may also be used.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CAUSES OF GYNECOMASTIA?
Male breast development begins in the early adolescent years as hormones begin to kick in and there is an imbalance with the sex hormones, testosterone and estrogen. Both sexes have these hormones. The female hormone estrogen stimulates the growth of breast tissue and the male hormone testosterone stops estrogen from making breast tissue. Unfortunately, men with gynecomastia have an imbalance causing their breast tissue to grow.
Reasons men develop excess breast tissue include:
- √ Testosterone and estrogen (hormonal) changes and imbalances
√ Steroid use
√ Steroid use
