Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by stubborn excess fat or excess glandular breast tissue in the male chest. Men can develop gynecomastia during infancy, puberty, or adulthood, and this condition is often resistant to diet and exercise. Gynecomastia may be caused by a hormone imbalance such as the relative excess of estrogen, or it may be a side effect of certain medications or drug use. To correct gynecomastia, patients have the option of undergoing male breast reduction, commonly known as gynecomastia surgery, to restore their natural masculine chest appearance. Gynecomastia surgery is performed to remove stubborn excess fat, glandular breast tissue, and skin. Depending on the patient, this may involve liposuction, excision, or a combination of techniques for optimal skin tightening results.
