Gynaecomastia is a medical condition that develops as a result of a hormonal imbalance in the male body. It causes protruding breasts for men suffering from this common condition. Our male chest reduction surgery can address these fat deposits to reduce the swelling as a result of gynaecomastia. This condition can have a direct impact on the physical appearance of men suffering from it, causing wardrobe issues and being self-conscious about it.
Gynecomastia causes enlargement of male breast tissue. During puberty, some hormonal surges can lead to the growth of male breast tissue as a result of a hormonal imbalance. Sometimes, the breast tissue will shrink after going through puberty. Unfortunately, in most cases, the breasts will remain enlarged. Asymptomatic gynecomastia is prevalent in about 60% to 90% of children, 50% to 60% in adolescents, and up to 70% in men between 50 and 69. Puberty, excessive weight gain, anabolic steroids, marijuana, and a variety of medication that could cause the breast tissue to enlarge are the most frequent causes of gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia would affect both breasts, targeting the breast tissue that is usually located directly underneath the nipple-areolar complex. It should feel like a palpable, tender, firm, mobile, disc-like mound of tissue that is consistently softer in comparison to a cancer cell. If these masses are hard and associated with skin or nipple discharge, we recommend consulting a medical professional, as you could be dealing with cancer instead.
