In brief: Usually, no!

Teenage boys can develop gynecomastia of varying degrees that can spontaneously regress in most cases as hormones "settle down.
" but many males still have mixed glandular/fatty gynecomastia. Obesity-related gynecomastia can diminish with weight loss, but glandular gynecomastia requires plastic surgical excision by an expert. Severe cases require skin removal as well (do not allow a female pattern).
