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.

NONE: If an adult male develops gynecomastia, other than with weight gain, and elevated prolactin level, or taking anabolic steroids, he needs a full medical evaluation. Have you been taking anabolics or other crap ordered off the internet? Surgery can remove some of the breast tissue.

GynecomastiaTreatmen: Typically liposuction is used to correct it. If there is also a lot of loose skin often this is also removed. Occasionally if there is firm redundant breast tissue it is surgically removed. See a board certified plastic surgeon.
