Excessive Chest Fat or Gynecomastia – more commonly known as man boobs or moobs – affects around 15% of adult men and is caused when excess fat develops in a man’s breast area. This fat can be very hard to shift, even if a weight loss plan has worked for the rest of the body, and the resulting ‘man boobs’ can cause embarrassment and can undermine confidence. The good news is there are safe, effective ways to tackle this problem that don’t involve surgery or long recovery periods – with our body contouring procedures.
The normal male breast
The normal male breast contains both fat tissue and glandular tissue. True breast tissue in males is typically a small localized lump located immediately under the nipple that is firmer than the surrounding fatty tissue. It is easy to remove fatty breast tissue by surgical liposuction, but much more difficult to remove glandular tissue.
Pseudo-gynecomastia is defined as an enlargement of male breast(s) caused by an excessive amount of fat tissue, but a normal amount of glandular breast tissue. Most male breasts that appear unusually large are the result of excessive fat. A slight but cosmetically undesirable degree of pseudo-gynecomastia probably occurs in a majority of men as they become older. Excessively fatty breasts are also common in younger men who are relatively obese.
This is defined as male breast enlargement caused by excessive glandular breast tissue. A true excess glandular breast tissue in men is not common. There are a number of distinct causes of gynecomastia including alcoholism, insufficient testosterone hormone, & few medications.
