Gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs” or “moobs” dates as far back as the seventeenth century (although uncured cases have been recorded before). It’s caused by the enlargement of the glandular tissue in breast and affects adolescents and middle aged men. It’s believed that 70% of young boys, at early to mid-puberty stage, experience gynecomastia due to hormonal changes.
According to a scientific research, the best treatment for gynecomastia is determined by several factors including cause, duration, severity, and whether it causes pain or discomfort.
The gynecomastia surgery is a complex procedure, and the surgeon has to consider health and aesthetic aspects – i.e. minimising scars and ensuring the patient is left with a natural chest shape.
It’s very important to find a surgeon that you feel 100% comfortable with, who will take time to understand your concerns and needs and deliver a result that you can live with for the rest of your life.
