A male teenager with breast tissue is normal or gynecomastia?

Define "normal" Gynecomastia comes from the greek meaning "gyne" meaning woman and  "mastos"  meaning breasts.  it refers to abnormal development of large mammary glands in males. Although there may be many “causes”, most cases are idiopathic (no specific cause). The use of certain medications, drugs, organ dysfunction (kidney or liver), hormonal imbalances etc. May also be causative.
Teen Gynecomastia. Teenagers often have excess breast tissue also call gynecomastia. It is best to wait until after puberty as it often self corrects.
Whether or not norm- -al doesn't really matter as much as the psychological effect: no teenage or any age male wants to have breasts. Sometimes, the problem is transient and therefore does not indicate treatment and it may also simply be fat if the individual is over wt. If practical, in the remaining cases, most males would benefit from treatment. The best treatment in my opinion, is slim lipo.
Normal and yes. It is gynecomastia and normal. Don't despair, it usually goes away by 18. Don't let anyone do any surgical procedure.

How effective is liposuction in male breast reduction? My breasts are pretty large, and I'm considering a male breast reduction. Is breast tissue always removed, or is the problem normally due to fat in the breast? How much can I reduce the size of my bre

Breasts. Breasts in both men and women are composed of fat and breast tissue. Depending upon how much breast tissue you may have in proportion to fat, liposuction will be of great benefit. Many males have bot h liposuction performed as well as a small incision along their areolae to remove any remaining breast tissue.
Effective. Liposuction is very effective in reducing the size of the male breast. If there is fibrous tissue (breast tissue) direct excision may be necessary.
Less effective. In young male breast where fibrous tissue predominates. More than likely you will need a subcutaneous mastectomy alone or in conjunction with lipo.
Very effective. Liposuction is very effective on male breast reduction if there is no or little skin excess, little stretch marks and little breast tissue. But if there is skin excess or large gland, you will benefit from a surgical reduction which removes breast gland and skin. Liposuction could be used as an adjunct to smooth out the contour, the lateral chest roll or the top.
Very Helpful. Liposuction is extremely helpful from male breast reduction, but often, it's not the full answer. When skin is loose, unstuffing the skin with liposuction ay leave the skin lax. If there is dense fibroglandular tissue, usually found under the nipple, liposuction alone cannot remove it. In these situations an incison is used to either remove the excess skin or remove the fibroglandular tissue.
