Gynecomastia is the enlargement of the male breasts. It may present as fatty deposits due to weight gain, an imbalance of hormones causing the male breast tissue to enlarge, or a combination of both. It may also present on just one side of the chest, or on both sides. While not a serious medical issue, the presence of "male breasts" or "man boobs" can be highly embarrassing, especially for teen boys or young men.
About two thirds of boys will experience some growth of the breast tissue during their teen years, but that normally subsides by the time the boy reaches the age of seventeen. If the condition is not resolved by then, self-esteem issues may take root and the condition may become all-consuming. Those affected may go to great lengths to hide this condition: wearing loose clothing, avoiding sports activities which may require removal of their shirt, avoiding locker room showers, or wearing a shirt or rash guard at the beach or swimming pool.
Many men are relieved to know there is a permanent solution to their gynecomastia, which will boost self-esteem and allow those masculine chests to see the light of day. Dr. Meadows offers gynecomastia surgery, which involves removal of the breast bud or tissue and/or any fatty deposits in that area. The chest area is sculpted to a masculine profile, completely eliminating any feelings of embarrassment or humiliation and allowing the patient to live a more carefree life.
Now is the time, gents. If you suffer from gynecomastia, this is the perfect time to take charge and choose the way you face the world.
