Gynecomastia is a term that refers to enlarged or over-developed breasts in men. This condition may occur in any age group. It may be caused by heredity, hormonal changes, obesity, or using certain drugs.

Male breast enlargement can lead to emotional problems and negatively impact your self-esteem. Some men are so embarrassed by this condition that they will not take part in physical activities that may reveal their breasts.

Male breast enlargement is typified by:

  • Excess development of glandular tissue
  • Excess localized fatty deposits
  • Excessive breast skin

Enlargement of breasts is mainly caused by excess fat and tissue that make the breasts look fuller and larger. Although the precise causes of male breast enlargement are unknown, it impacts a large number of men and may be related to certain medications, excess weight, and hormonal imbalance, particularly during adolescence.

Men with gynecomastia often try to correct their condition using diet and exercise, but may be unsuccessful because fat often cannot be removed from a particular area of the body using these methods. Browse these before and after pictures to see results of some of his actual patients.
