It is much more common than people think for males to develop relatively large breasts. About half of adolescent boys experience breast development during puberty due to hormonal imbalances and possible metabolic disorders. The condition is known as gynecomastia and can be a source of emotional distress and poor body image.
There are a variety of treatments available for those who are concerned about gynecomastia. The symptoms will vary from person to person, which will fall into a scale of classification. The scale ranges from Grade I, Minor, up to Grade IV, Marked with excess skin.
Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Lisa Taylor to determine the best course of action. The reduction procedure can involve liposuction to remove excess fat and incisions to remove excess skin.
