As a man, having enlarged breasts can be incredibly embarrassing and even affect your masculinity significantly. This condition, known as gynecomastia, may cause you to feel the need to hide your body at places like the beach or pool parties and may cause you to feel self-conscious in a variety of other social situations.
It can be hard to narrow down the cause of a patient’s enlarged male breasts. It can develop in men at any point in their lives. The condition isn’t easily treated without surgery, and simply losing weight by dieting or exercising often has no effect.
The best way to effectively get rid of enlarged male breasts is through breast reduction surgery. This procedure reduces the size of the breasts with either surgical excision or liposuction through limited incisions.
If your enlarged male breasts make you feel self-conscious about your body, a male breast reduction will surely provide the relief you need.
