Gynecomastia Surgery for Men in NYC

Gynecomastia is a common medical condition characterized by the enlargement of male breast tissue. Generally, gynecomastia happens when a man’s hormones, primarily estrogen, and testosterone, are not in balance, thus causing the development of excess chest tissue. While not typically a serious health concern, gynecomastia can cause emotional distress and self-esteem issues in affected men. It can manifest at any age but is most prevalent during puberty and in older men. This condition affects a substantial number of men, with an estimated 30-60% experiencing gynecomastia at some point in their lives. The causes can vary, including hormonal fluctuations, medications, or underlying medical conditions. It’s important to seek the best gynecomastia surgeon in NYC for your consultation to get the best results.

Symptoms of Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, often referred to as man boobs, manifests through various symptoms. Its primary indicator is the enlargement of one or both pecs, leading to increased size and volume. Those affected may also encounter chest tenderness or heightened sensitivity, resulting in soreness or discomfort upon contact. Nipple changes can occur, encompassing nipple enlargement, increased sensitivity, and, though less common, nipple discharge. Additionally, gynecomastia can bring about chest asymmetry, causing one pec to be more affected than the other and causing an imbalance in size and shape. Beyond the physical signs, this condition can have a significant psychological impact, inducing self-consciousness, embarrassment, and anxiety about one’s appearance, ultimately diminishing self-esteem.
