No: Chances are that you're a young man who's hitting the gym and that's a good thing. How much body hair you get is genetic and you'll know by your early 20's. It's "excessive" only if you don't like it -- and that's your business. Shaving, waxing, or electrolysis / lasers are your options -- the latter only if you've found your life partner and it's the right choice for you both.
