What Is Gynecomastia?
A lot of men wish they had a muscular, well-defined, and masculine-looking chest that would look good in a tight shirt or when completely bare. In some cases, putting in some hard work at the gym can help them reach their body goals. Unfortunately, this is not the case for all men.
Some men may notice that they have overdeveloped breasts that won’t shrink in size no matter how strict their diet and workout routine is. These men suffer from a common condition known as gynecomastia. The reason gynecomastia cannot be addressed through traditional methods of weight loss is because the problem may not just be the presence of excess fat.
Men who suffer from gynecomastia often have breasts that also contain an excess amount of glandular tissue. That means the only way to properly address the issue is through the surgical excision of that excess glandular tissue. During this procedure, excess fat is also removed from the breasts using liposuction in order to ensure that the chest has a flat and masculine appearance.
