Gynecomastia or man boobs can occur at any age, which may be a result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain medications.


Gynecomastia is a medical condition, meaning male breast enlargement which needs surgical attention. Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size in men, flattening and enhancing the chest contour, which is acceptable for a masculine body figure. Scientifically, it is also known as reduction mammoplasty in which the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) and the nipple are repositioned, along with reducing the excess skin, if the male has an excess sagging chest.
In severe cases of gynecomastia, breast sagging can also appear due to the weight of enlarged and excess breast tissues results in stretching of the areola. This condition demands surgical attention and that is why Gynecomastia surgery is performed to correct the shape, size, and contour of the male breast.
Gynecomastia is common and occurs at any age in men, which is associated with benign pubertal changes.
