Gynaecomastia – Male Chest Reduction
Gynaecomastia is a condition that develops as a result of a hormonal imbalance. It causes a protruding chest for men suffering from this common condition. Our male breast reduction surgery can break down the fat deposits underneath the chest to reduce the swelling and the effect of gynaecomastia. This condition can cause men to be self-aware of their physical appearance, along with limiting their wardrobe options.
Causes of Gynaecomastia
Gynecomastia causes enlargement of male breast tissue and can cause men suffering from this condition to feel shame and embarrassment. During puberty, some hormonal surges can lead to the growth of male breast tissue as a result of an imbalance. Sometimes, the breast tissue will shrink after going through puberty. However, in the majority of cases, the breasts will remain enlarged. Asymptomatic gynecomastia is prevalent in about 60% to 90% of children, 50% to 60% in adolescents, and up to 70% in men between 50 and 69 years of age. The most frequent causes of gynecomastia consist of puberty, excessive weight gain, anabolic steroids, marijuana, and a variety of medication that could cause the breast tissue to enlarge.
Do I Have Gynaecomastia?
Gynecomastia would normally affect both breasts. The breast tissue is usually located directly underneath the nipple-areolar complex. It should feel like a palpable, tender, firm, mobile, disc-like mound of tissue that is softer than a cancer cell would normally be. If these masses are hard and associated with skin or nipple discharge, you might be dealing with breast cancer as opposed to gynaecomastia.
