Gynecomastia is a medical term derived from the Greek meaning “woman-like breasts.” In practical terms, this means an abnormal enlargement of one or both breasts in men. It affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men in the United States.

Gynecomastia is characterized by:

  • Excess breast fat
  • Excess glandular tissue development

Gynecomastia can cause impaired self-confidence and emotional disturbance. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.

In general, the indications for treatment include marked pain and tenderness, or emotional discomfort. Men may seek correction of enlarged breasts for a variety of reasons, but most often this is related to being socially uncomfortable. If you are unhappy with the way your chest appears in clothing or are reluctant to remove your shirt in public because of enlargement of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for gynecomastia correction. The most uniformly effective therapy at any stage is a surgical male breast reduction.

What is Gynecomastia and What Causes It?

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the medical word for man boobs. It describes the abnormal enlargement of breast tissue in a male. Although all men have breast tissue, most do not notice it or perhaps do not even realize it is there, as it is so small that it can’t be seen or even felt. However if hormone levels in the man’s body change the breast tissue will grow, causing gynecomastia. Breast tissue grows in response to high levels of the ‘female’ hormone estrogen while high levels of the ‘male’ hormone testosterone stop it from growing. If anything in a man’s body causes a rise in estrogen or a fall in testosterone, this can mean the breast tissue grows. There are many things that can cause these changes, and most are not at all worrying. The condition often has few symptoms, is usually not painful, and most commonly happens on both sides – although it can more rarely be unilateral.

Stages or grades of gynecomastia:

  • Grade 1 – Small swelling limited to the areola
  • Grade 2 – Moderate to significant swelling spreading beyond the areola with edges blending with the chest wall
  • Grade 3 – Significant swelling with clearly defined edges
  • Grade 4 – Significant to severe swelling which may ‘sag’ along with feminization of the breast

Causes of gynecomastia

The underlying cause of gynecomastia is usually a shift in hormone levels, but this in turn can have a range of different causes. Gynecomastia is very common at some times in life: for male babies, in teenage boys during puberty and in older age. At all these times, hormone levels can change and result in gynecomastia. Male babies may have higher levels of their mother’s estrogen in their system, teenagers have a storm of hormones released during puberty which can throw the balance off for a while, and older men naturally experience a drop in their testosterone. The best course of action for all these men is usually simply to watch and wait. As hormone levels settle down, the gynecomastia usually goes away on its own and no treatment is needed.

Other causes of gynecomastia include:

  • Some prescribed medications
  • Taking recreational drugs (most often steroids in bodybuilding or marijuana)
  • High intake of some foods (in rare cases)
  • Disease of the liver or kidneys
  • Rare genetic conditions
  • Hormone secreting tumors

Dr. Agha and his staff truly feel like a second family to me. I revealed my biggest insecurity to him and his team, only to be met with sincere respect and absolutely no judgment or criticism. I had a tummy tuck, lipo on the small of my back and fat transfer from that lipo to my buttocks. I was completely prepared for recovery, as they well informed me of what to expect so there were no surprises. The results exceeded both of our expectations as he is just as excited about them as I am. I have recommended him to absolutely everyone I know, and others who are just beginning their journey with their own self improvement. He is the most qualified surgeon in the state of California (believe me, I have checked), and has even pioneered certain procedures that are imitated in the state and I’m sure throughout the country.
