Gynecomastia (Male)

Gynecomastia is a condition where men develop female-like breasts. Physiological gynecomastia occurs from a temporary hormonal imbalance during puberty. If this does not resolve by early adulthood, then it is amenable to surgical correction. Other causes of gynecomastia are obesity, excessive alcohol intake, marijuana use, and anabolic steroid use.

Gynecomastia is managed surgically by excision of prominent breast tissue and/or liposuction.
