Gynecomastia is the abnormal enlargement of breast tissue in men. It usually starts during puberty and affects 10% of teenage boys in the United States. Sometimes this will resolve by itself but if it persist for longer than 2 years, it almost never goes away spontaneously. Studies have shown that in the vast majority of cases there is no hormone imbalence and no other associated disease processes happening. This condition can run in families (hereditary) or it can occur as an isolated case.
Gynecomastia has been shown to caues great anxiety and even depression in men and boys who suffer from this. At the very least they find it embarrassing to take off their shirt at the pool, the gym, or to participate in sports. Many avoid these activities altogether and become socially withdrawn. Fortunately, we have a plastic surgery procedure that permantly cures this condition . It is an outpatient procedure that takes about one hour and requires only a few days recovery. This procedure leaves the chest area with a normal contour and with virtually no visible scars. For more information please call us at (614) 326-4661.
