Gynecomastia Causes and Plastic Surgery Solutions
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that causes enlargement of the male breasts. This condition can negatively affect self-esteem and often requires surgical intervention.
There are many causes of gynecomastia, including some that have non-surgical treatments. It is not uncommon for boys to experience some mild gynecomastia during puberty, but this usually goes away with time. This is because gynecomastia is linked to hormones and specifically, hormone issues.
It is common for patients with thyroid disorders and other hormonal dysfunction to complain about gynecomastia due to hormonal imbalances. Working with a doctor to change medications or treat these medical conditions can help reduce the appearance of gynecomastia. Surgery may still be desired if gynecomastia does not go away or lessen with adequate treatment.
Gynecomastia surgery — also known as male breast reduction — can return the chest to it’s flat and flattering appearance. It can use liposuction or other surgical techniques to reduce male breasts and restore a confident appearance.
