In recent news, more and more men have developed the courage to speak out about the problems that some of them have endured since their teen years… this problem is a condition known as gynecomastia, or abnormal male breast enlargement.
On beach or in the locker rooms, these teens would be taunted and teased by their class mates because of their overdeveloped male breasts. This condition can also develop in men over the age of 50. If you suffer from gynecomastia, then our gynecomastia New York City specialists are here to help you take control of your life again.
Why this Condition Affects So Many
The term gynecomastia comes from a Greek phrase that translates to “female-like breasts.” These feminine features can be the cause of much shame for a lot of teens and men. All guys have breasts, but they generally do not grow large because of the higher level of testosterone and lower level of estrogen in the body.
Gynecomastia produces an excess of breast tissue in men due to an imbalance in these two hormones, creating a larger than normal male breast.
This issue can sometimes develop when a boy hits puberty, but often disappears within a couple of years. Sometimes, gynecomastia can occur in adulthood, mostly among men over the age of 50. Almost 25% of the adult male population in the U.S. is currently experiencing this condition. Some of these men also experience tenderness, tingling, or swelling in the nipple and breast region as well.
If you have gynecomastia, the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team is here to help. They understand the pain that you are going through and are here to help. Gynecomastia procedures are fairly common in the U.S., with more than 18,500 men undergoing some sort of breast-reduction procedure every year as of 2011 (figures from ASPS).
