What Causes Male Breast Enlargement?
Male breast enlargement may have genetic roots or may be caused by external factors. Oversized breasts are common side effects of hormonal imbalances in male infants and during puberty, and in most cases, the condition resolves on its own. However, some men are not as lucky because they continue to be bothered by man boobs well into their adulthood and until they do something about the condition.
Male breast enlargement in adults can be the unwanted side effect of thyroid, kidney, liver and/or testicles disorders. Being overweight is one of the common causes of the condition. Sometimes epilepsy, ulcer, anti-anxiety and/or anti-depressant drugs or undergoing chemotherapy can cause man boobs. Abuse of alcohol, marijuana, heroin, methamphetamine, and anabolic steroids can also lead to male breast enlargement.
If man boobs are caused by an underlying medical condition, doctors first try to manage the disease. In all other cases, gynecomastia resolves the problem, usually once and for all. The results are dramatic; take a look at some gynecomastia before-and-after photographs.
What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a surgical procedure to correct the problem of male breast enlargement. During this procedure, the surgeon removes excess fat or tissues or both from the breast area. Depending on the severity of the condition, the surgeon may make a small incision in the armpit to suck out the fat or make a larger incision around the nipple and also do a chest lift.
Male breast reduction surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure. It takes around two hours to complete the procedure and is carried out under local or general anesthesia. Generally, it is performed on an outpatient basis, so you can be back home the same day.
Unless you put weight back on or your medical condition that had caused your breasts to enlarge recurs, gynecomastia produces permanent results. This is the greatest benefit of a surgical procedure that has minimal downtime, just about a week.

What to Expect During the Gynecomastia Recovery Period?
You will have to wear bandages and a compression garment for some time after the surgery till you are healed. These will keep swelling to a minimum and also help define the new contours of your chest. As it is with any other surgery, you might experience some pain during the gynecomastia recovery period. Do not worry, the pain will be mild, and your surgeon will prescribe medicines to help you cope with the discomfort.
After the bandages come off, you will notice a firmer and flatter chest. The scars fade away on their own over time. However, you should resume physically demanding activities like lifting weights and doing gym workouts after you have healed completely.
In a fashionable and appearance-conscious city like New York, gynecomastia gives you the chance to overcome your imperfections and become a part of the “beautiful” crowd. Beware, you will be watched closely by the fashion police during the upcoming festival season. Get ready to wow others by getting rid of your man boobs. Go in for a gynecomastia now, wear the bandages and compression garments under the cover of your woolies and jackets, and emerge as a transformed man, brimming with confidence.
