Gynecomastia: Man boobs aka gynecomastia is benign enlargement of breast tissue in males. Up to 60% of men worldwide have some degree of gynecomastia and there are a variety of causes. The causes have to be ruled out for the proper treatment. If all underlying hormonal and drug causes are ruled out, then the benign breast mass can be removed via liposuction or direct excision depending on the degree.
