Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, disease or the use of certain medications. This disorder can cause emotional discomfort and impair self-confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy to hide the condition.
Ideal candidates for this procedur are men who are physically healthy and of normal weight, have realistic expectations, and are bothered by the feeling that the breasts are too large. Adolescents may benefit from surgery, although secondary procedures may be needed in the future if breast development continues.
