Excess glandular (breast) tissue in men, called "gynecomastia" is a common condition, seen in an estimated 40-60% of men, and can result in significant social embarrassment and loss of confidence.
The goal of surgical treatment of gynecomastia is to make the chest proportional to the rest of the torso, creating a flatter, firmer chest area with better contours and minimal or virtually invisible scarring.
The surgery is usually performed with a combination of , to remove excess fat, and excision ("cutting") to remove excess breast tissue.

The causes commonly attributed to excess chest in men are:
The most common cause of problematic gynecomastia is residual breast tissue that does not disappear at puberty. Less commonly, certain drugs (prescription and "recreational") and hormonal medical problems can cause gynecomastia. In the vast majority of cases there is no identifiable cause, and non-surgical treatments play no role in treatment.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CORRECT GYNECOMASTIA WITHOUT SURGERY?
Male breast enlargement, known as gynecomastia, is a condition in which men develop excess breast tissue that more closely resembles breasts. This condition is usually treated with surgery to reduce the bulk of the tissue in the breasts. Although there are some non-surgical options for the treatment of gynecomastia, they do not always correct the problem. Instead, offers an immediate solution and can remove breast tissue, improving the masculine appearance of the chest.
Non-surgical treatment options
There are several non-surgical approaches to male breast reduction. Some of the methods include:
Diet and exercise. Maintaining a proper diet and exercising can help balance hormones and burn fat tissue. Stop using drugs or steroids. Steroids and certain drugs can increase the risk of enlarged man boobs. Reduce alcohol consumption. Alcohol consumption can increase the risk of enlarged man boobs. Hormonal treatments. Hormonal imbalances lead to the development of man boobs, and treatment options to balance hormones can help minimize the appearance of breast enlargement. Lose weight. Losing weight can help reduce the size of the breasts. This may work well for men who need to lose a lot of weight, but it may not remove all of the excess breast tissue.
For some men, these non-invasive treatment options may work to reduce the appearance of the breasts. However, many men who suffer from moderate to severe gynecomastia may find these options unsuccessful in correcting excess tissue.
Weight loss will not translate into a loss of chest fat alone. Often, men with gynecomastia can lose weight but not see any significant reduction in the size of their breasts. This is because excess breast tissue is not only made up of fat, but also muscle and glandular tissue.
