What to Know
It is a condition that describes the enlargement or swelling of the breast tissue of males. This condition can affect either one or both of the breasts. It occurs when there is an imbalance between the estrogen and testosterone hormones.
Gynecomastia occurs at different stages of a male’s life, such as after birth, at puberty, or at mid-life and beyond, where the breast tissue shrinks and expands. There are other conditions that can lead to gynecomastia, such as obesity, lack of proper nutrition, and certain medications.
Gynecomastia causes a great deal of embarrassment to males; therefore, more males are seeking to perform the surgery to return to their lives.
