The condition known as Gynecomastia, or overdeveloped breasts in men, is actually a fairly common one. In many cases this condition will be grown out of, but for those in which that is not the case, it can be an extremely uncomfortable condition to have to deal with emotionally. Men with gynecomastia are often very self-conscious and teased by fellow peers. It can be very emotionally traumatizing. There are varying degrees of severity about men with gynecomastia ranging from slight to very severe. Some may even only develop it in one of the breasts.
The only treatment for gynecomastia is through Male Breast Reduction surgery. In this procedure an incision is generally made around the areola and excess fatty tissue and skin is removed. In some cases liposuction may also be used, depending on the case. The remaining skin will be closed creating a flatter, more masculine chest.
