When it comes to excess fat in the chest area of a male, one might assume that it is due to obesity or significant weight loss. The truth is, for men and boys of all ages, it is relatively common to experience some degree of male breast enlargement, as explained by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This condition, known as gynecomastia, is one in which excess glandular breast tissue leads to an enlargement of the male breasts. Moreover, while pubescent boys may suffer from gynecomastia due to a rise in hormonal levels (estrogen), the chest naturally contours and flattens with age for most, but not all. Even so, the condition remains more prevalent among adult men, and is related to thyroid problems and cancer, as well as the consumption of alcohol and/or recreational drug use.
With a greater understanding of gynecomastia and its causes, it’s easy to imagine how it can negatively affect a male’s self-esteem and overall quality of life. In fact, some even avoid physical activities and intimacy as a result. Yet, gynecomastia or male breast reduction surgery provides enormous physical and emotional improvements by removing excess glandular tissue and skin to create a more masculine chest contour. What’s more, the fat that is removed during surgery can be used to sculpt the pectoralis muscle for patients seeking a more defined appearance.
