Gynecomastia is a condition that causes male breasts to be over-developed or sag due to enlarged mammary glands. The cause of it can be anything from hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the side effects of certain drugs. It can cause a lot of emotional discomfort and anxiety because those who suffer feel embarrassed by their appearance.
However, with the surgical procedure called reduction mammoplasty, men with gynecomastia can get the confidence they’ve always wanted. An experienced plastic surgeon can remove the excess breast tissue and tighten the skin. It is a typically easy procedure but like any other surgery, it can have its risks. The results of a gynecomastia surgery are usually permanent however, if gynecomastia resulted from the effects of certain medications, drugs, or significant weight gain, the person must make a lifestyle change. This can be anything from changing your diet, an exercise plan, or getting rid of the medications that brought on gynecomastia.
