With an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men experiencing the condition, Gynecomastia is hardly rare, though many men, even those with the condition, may never know there is a name and an treatment option to reverse it. The condition is characterized by the overdevelopment of breast tissue in men and while there are no health risks associated with the condition, for many men the emotional affects are enough to cause them to seek out treatment. Many men feel embarrassed or self-conscious of their more feminine appearing chest, particularly in physical or intimate activities. To reduce the size of the breasts a Male Breast Reduction surgery may be performed to create a flatter, more masculine looking chest appearance.
It is worth noting that many men do outgrow the condition, but for those who do not outgrow Gynecomastia, the enhanced breast size may be permanent unless surgically altered.
