What causes gynecomastia?

For males, it is more common that you think for tissue around the chest area to overdevelop. During puberty, males often experience a change in hormone levels that can result in a condition called gynecomastia. This leads to overdeveloped breast tissue. For those who are concerned about overdeveloped breast tissue, there is male breast reduction.

Gynecomastia can include swollen breast gland tissue, tenderness of the breasts and an abnormal development of the chest area. Hormones are often the root cause, but overdeveloped breast tissue can occur for a variety of reasons. Male breast reduction involves removing excess tissue through surgery or liposuction.

To learn more about male breast reduction and gynecomastia, speak with Dr. Tim Neavin.
