In brief: Surgery Helpful.

Assuming a young man has achieved a long-term stable weight and there are no “causative agents” involved, surgery may be indicated.
It is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposculpture surgery may suffice.

In brief: Usually surgery

Gynecomastia is normal for newborns (it resolves when the mother's hormones leave the infant) and at adolescence.
The gynecomastia of adolescence usually resolved in a year or two. At other times gynecomastia is unlikely to resolve. There are no medications for this, so surgical removal is the primary means of treatment.

In brief: Gynecomastia

Enlarged male breasts can come from a number of different causes.
Before any treatment can be done, you must first have a complete physical exam and may need bloodwork to rule out hormonal issues. There are a number of medications that can also cause gynecomastia. Once all medical reasons are ruled out, one may consider treatment. You should seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon.
