Back to a Manly Silhouette

Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged male breasts. There are two forms, “real gynecomastia” with increased glandular breast tissue and “pseudogynecomastia” as a result of obesity.

Gynecomastia changes the silhouette of the upper body, making it appear more feminine – which puts a lot of stress on men suffering from this condition. Not only because of a confusing self-perception but especially because men will be subjected to pejorative remarks, e.g. when working out. Such remarks can weigh heavily on one’s self-esteem, the term “moobs” still being one of the nicer things that men have to endure.

Fortunately, correcting the situation can in most cases be achieved by surgery that is both unproblematic and promises lasting effects. However, in cases where gynecomastia is the result of obesity, weight reduction should be achieved first – not least because of the comprehensive positive health effects connected with this. Only after weight loss has proven not to be feasible or not successful will surgery be considered as a rational option.

A slight form of gynecomastia during puberty is not uncommon; it will normally recede by itself and does not require any treatment.

We’d like to discuss any potential risks as well as the treatment procedure in your individual case, explaining all details and answering your questions, in a personal consulting session. Please contact us for further information.
