Gynecomastia Surgery - Steven Teitelbaum
More men will develop gynecomastia than will not. But that doesn't make it any less concerning for those. 90% of adolescent boys will develop male breast enlargement to one extent or another. And though it frequently resolves, it still persists in a great many men as they grow into adulthood. Gynecomastia really should not be viewed as being something abnormal, but rather something that is common, albeit undesirable. The good news is that it is very treatable.
It is undesirable because it makes men reluctant to take their shirt off at the beach. Some wear two shirts everyday just to conceal it. Even thin men who work out regularly at the gym and otherwise have put the effort into developing bodies that would look good in tight shirts and sweaters cannot do so. Gynecomastia can make men who are just a few pounds overweight look much heavier than they really are. Whether lounging around the beach or a pool, hanging out in jeans and a t-shirt, trying to fit nicely into a suit, or simply taking their shirt off, sufferers of gynecomastia wish it would go away. In the past, gynecomastia surgery was mostly done on teenage boys sent to plastic surgeons by their pediatrician.
