Gynecomastia, which is a common concern among young men and it is responsible for making them self-conscious and socially anxious. If you are someone who suffers from this condition, you should know that Breast Reduction Surgery is an effective treatment for Gynecomastia.

Academic evidence points to the fact that an imbalance between the sex hormones (testosterone and oestrogen) in the bodies of men is the main cause behind breast enlargement. Typically, testosterone levels in men should be higher. However, some males produce more oestrogen than usual, which causes the breast tissue to enlarge more than it normally does.

From a medical standpoint, this is a benign illness that doesn't raise any serious health issues. From a psychological standpoint however, this tends to cause self-image issues in a lot of boys and young men. It therefore may be crucial to diagnose and treat it.

The exact reason for abnormally high level of oestrogen in men isn’t very clear, but there are factors that are believed by some to be the main cause for such hormonal imbalances. Some of those factors are having a less active lifestyle, smoking, reaction to medications, kidney or liver diseases etc.

If you are unsure whether your enlarged chest is just excess fat or fat and gland tissue, then a personalised consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in the identification, diagnosis and treatment of Gynecomastia can be helpful.
