What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Men have breast tissues as in women and in some cases, this tissue is more immense than it should be. This condition is named as “gynecomastia” in medicine. Boosting of breasts in men by both diet and exercise and also with increasing weight due to hormones is called gynecomastia. This condition shouldn’t be confused with muscle development in the breast area.

Gynecomastia may be observed in men at puberty and in increasing age. Change in breast tissue in puberty is dependent on hormones and this gets better at the end of puberty and with hormones going back to the normal level. And with advancing age, breasts boost in volume (fatty tissue and mammary gland) due to either decrease in testosterone level or an increase in weight. If gynecomastia has come out due to boosting of mammary glands, the excessive parts of breasts which have boosted are removed. Also in gynecomastia arising due to boosting of fatty tissue liposuction surgery is applied.
