What Can Cause Man Boobs?

Most men who suffer from man boobs will find the cause in weight gain. However, overweight is not always the cause of man boobs, given the fact that they may develop for other reasons as well. For example, another common cause of man boobs is a hormonal imbalance. The hormonal imbalance will start an abnormal growth of glandular breast tissue, which means that clear man boobs will start to show. Therefore, your cosmetic surgery may need to examine your medical history to find the cause.

In addition to hormone imbalances, there could be other reasons for male breast growth. Additional causes for the abnormal growth of man breasts are excess alcohol consumption, drug use, medical conditions such as liver failure and cancer, genetic predisposition and dramatic weight loss.

Man boobs is a problem that occurs often in Australian men, so it is not surprising that the male breast reduction is a common treatment here at our clinic. The case study above is a prime example of how gynaecomastia (man boobs) can affect the physique of a man and make them appear more feminine. Contrary to popular belief, this problem is not always caused by obesity, because some men suffer from man boobs due to genetics or hormonal imbalances during puberty, after which the man boobs remain. For these patients, a male breast reduction could provide the solution.

During gynaecomastia surgery, a cosmetic surgery can eliminate breast tissue and fat from the treatment area. The goal of the procedure is reshaping the patient’s chest and providing an overall manlier physique. For some patients, the removal of fat is enough, but in the case study above, the patient also needed an additional procedure to remove the excess breast tissue that was affecting the shape of the patient’s chest. To maintain the results he obtained from the male breast reduction, the patient will have to exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet. However, if a patient does not maintain a healthy lifestyle, persistent fats could return and affect the aesthetics of the chest.
