Liposuction – The Best Treatment for Male Breast (Gynecomastia) Reduction
Gynecomastia means a man having woman like breasts. This problem is characterized by excess development of breast glandular tissue or excess fat deposition over the chest or most commonly combination of both excess gland + fat. The condition of overdeveloped breasts in men is not uncommon. Sometimes during thpe puberty in boys, these breast glands increase in size. This enlargement can also be a result of some diseases, use of particular drugs and hormonal changes. A Gynecomastia in male can result into low self-confidence as well as emotional discomfort.
