Gynaecomastia is the medical term for an excess of fatty breast tissue that occurs in men and is commonly referred to as man-boobs or ‘moobs’. The excess tissue can develop at puberty or may happen later in life, it is sometimes a response to a hormone imbalance or may be the result of treatment with certain drugs such as steroids. This condition is far more common than you make think.

Often the first suggested treatment for gynaecomastia is sensible dieting and spending a bit more time at the gym to reduce the fatty component of the breast tissue. This can work in some circumstance, but in others the only way to improve the appearance and contour of the chest is through male breast reduction surgery.
