Due to various reasons, some men develop excess breast tissue and fat in the chest area. The medical term for this condition is gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. It is thought to affect nearly half of all men in the U.S. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition. With modern advances in liposuction, the excess fat tissue can be removed safely.
