Gynecomastia is a fairly common condition that causes the over-development of breast tissue in men. Gynecomastia may occur due to a number of factors from changes in hormones to obesity, heredity or the use of certain drugs. Many men with gynecomastia feel very self-conscious of their chest and wish they had a more traditional, masculine chest appearance. For some men, the gynecomastia may go away over time, while other men may only get rid of it through surgical intervention. The male breast reduction surgery reduces excess breast tissue to create a flatter, more masculine chest contour.
