How Do I Know If I Have Gynecomastia?
While you may not be familiar with the medical term, gynecomastia, enlarged breasts in men is more common than you may realize. This condition can occur in boys and men of all ages, and it can also be the source of extreme discomfort and self-consciousness. There are many causes of male breast development, including hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, and weight gain. Some prescription medications can also stimulate the development of excess glandular tissue. If you have noticed unwanted changes in the size, shape, or softness of your chest region, our board certified plastic surgeon can determine if you have gynecomastia during your initial consultation. Utilizing the latest techniques, he can then help you return to a body contour you feel more comfortable with as soon as possible.
