MALE PROCEDURE

Another name for enlarged male breasts is gynecomastia. Ideally, the male breasts are muscular and well defined. It signifies strength and masculinity. Sometimes, for various reasons, the male breast becomes fatty and begins to sag. Instead of a healthy masculine look, the man is left with an unhealthy, out of shape, feminine look.


The causes of this problem range from hormonal changes, to intake of medications, to genetic predisposition. In fact, it is not uncommon for healthy teenage boys, usually around 14 years of age, to have this problem for 1 to 2 years. The reason is hormonal and usually goes away after puberty.


Often, the cause of gynecomastia is never identified. Certain diseases and medications can be the cause and these need to be looked into by your family doctor. The medical causes range from deficiency of testosterone to excess of estrogen. Being overweight can cause too much estrogen and, therefore, it is highly recommended to lose weight.
