Gynecomastia is a relatively common condition in men where they develop breasts like women. Sometimes they are only small but in other cases these male breasts can get quite large. The problems they lead to are mostly emotional (loss of confidence, shame) but can be medical (painful) as well.
Doctors and scientists are still trying to work out why some men have enlarged breasts but others don’t. They think it might be as a result of an imbalance of the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone but there are also other causing factors. These include genetics and drug use (anti-depressants, blood pressure medicines, marijuana, and steroids)
Some people think that a healthy diet and exercise will treat gynecomastia but this will only treat another condition called pseudogynecomastia. This is the name of the condition men have because of the fat on their chests.
Gynecomastia is not a serious medical issue but it can be very embarrassing for the men and boys who have it. It is very common in teenage boys because of the fluctuations of hormones that occur during adolescence. Gynecomastia in older men is a result of the decreasing levels of testosterone.
Gynecomastia can be treated by breast reduction. This can involve surgery and/or liposuction. If you are in Mexico for this treatment, talk to your plastic surgeon during the consultation to make sure that you are a good candidate for it. He will make sure that you are healthy, well adjusted and have realistic expectations of the outcome. Male breast reduction surgery will not be recommended to obese or overweight men, especially if they haven’t tried to lose the fat on their chests via other means.
The cost of male breast reduction may be covered by your medical insurance depending on how severe your condition is. Otherwise, Mexico is a very affordable option and you can have a vacation at the same time!
