You’ve heard people jokingly call them “man boobs,” but for those who suffer from gynecomastia, it’s no laughing matter.
Gynecomastia is a condition that creates excess breast tissue in both adolescent boys and men, resulting in a more feminine-looking chest. A number of factors can lead to gynecomastia, including a hormone imbalance, endocrine disorder, or certain drug abuse, like steroids.
Many men with gynecomastia feel self-conscious and embarrassed, and have low self-esteem. Often, the only way to reverse the condition is male breast reduction surgery. Beverly Hills surgeon Dr. Babak Dadvand specializes in corrective, natural surgeries that help reshape a patient’s chest for a more masculine look.
