In brief: Varies...

The decision of whether or not to proceed with surgery to correct gynecomastia will ultimately be a very personal decision based on whether the enlarged breast gland causes physical and/or psychosocial “distress”.
As always, patient should weigh the pros/cons associated with the procedure to determine whether to proceed or not. Consultation with board certified plastic surgeons may be helpful.

In brief: Want to look normal

Much like many women without breast tissue feel less feminine men with breasts feel less masculine.
Sometimes crude remarks or being called "bitch tits" hurts enough for some men to seek remedy through surgical removal of their breast enlargement.
