What Is Gynecomastia

Most men have no trouble growing larger in the chest when they do it on purpose. Dedication to lifting in the gym can produce excellent body shape changes. Unfortunately, many men experience chest growth that is unwanted, unsightly, and embarrassing.

Growth that is wanted usually happens because of the addition of lean muscle tissue. Unwanted growth, on the other hand, is commonly the result of a condition called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is the formation of feminine-looking breast tissue in men.

How Does Gynecomastia Happen?

Men should realize that when fatty breast tissue forms, it is rarely because of something that they did wrong. Gynecomastia can appear suddenly in men for many reasons. Whatever the cause, the appearance of excess breast tissue can be traumatic for men. Enlarged breast tissue is visually displeasing, and it can cause men to have a feeling of inadequacy. Fortunately, experts like Dr. Ramiro Perez and Dr. Ricardo Castrellon can provide treatments.

There are three particularly common times when gynecomastia symptoms emerge.

During Puberty

Some men are predisposed to fatty tissues growing in the chest area during the periods when their entire bodies are growing into a more masculine form. It is quite common for tissue to collect in the chest area.

While Taking Medication

Certain prescription medications can create an estrogenic effect in male bodies. These medications are primarily used to treat things like depression. Estrogenic side effects often appear as physical changes like the enlargement of breast tissues.

Stopping a Steroidal Cycle

Many men incorporate the help of muscle-building supplements that work to increase lean tissue. These supplements act as hormonal substitutes in the body. When a man stops using hormonal boosters, radical body shifts can occur.

Excess Adipose Tissue

Sometimes, men will experience gynecomastia symptoms because of the way their bodies behave. No matter how they try to reduce fat, it seems as if their chests always store more fat than the rest of their bodies. In these cases, liposuction surgery is needed.

Liposuction for gynecomastia produces real visual results. It is centered on removing gynecomatic deposits that are related to overall body fat conditions. Liposuction removes excess fat, but it does not always address the core issues related to why gynecomastia is happening.

Overactive Glandular Tissue

In a large percentage of men, gynecomastia happens because certain body glands produce hormones that induce fatty deposits. Particularly, these deposits happen in areas like the chest where glands are plentiful.

Surgery to remove tissue that is produced by overactive glands can help with conditions like gynecomastia. This type of surgery targets the origins of breast tissue growth in men. It has a shorter healing period than general fat liposuction, and it helps to create more masculine body lines in target areas.

Gynecomastia is a physical problem that many men encounter. The growth of breast tissue is tough to deal with for most men. Growing fatty breast tissue is no reason for a man to believe that he is inadequate.
