Gynecomastia (enlarged male breast tissue), known as “man boobs,” effects an estimated 40-50% of the male population. The condition is typically caused by excess fat associated with obesity, but there may be some associated breast gland tissue present as well. For those affected, gynecomastia can cause significant embarrassment, emotional distress, and low self-esteem. Many men avoid removing their shirts, or find themselves choosing loose fitting clothing, and often avoid intimate relations. Fortunately, there is a surgical option available for men who are tired of dealing with gynecomastia and wish to regain their self-confidence. A male breast reduction in Fort Worth may be your best option.
