All men have some breast tissue. When the volume of breast and chest fatty tissue become excessive it distorts the normal contours. Indeed, in some cases male breasts can be equivalent to a woman's C cup in size.
Occasionally this is due to a hormone imbalance, however, in most instances there is no detectable abnormality either on blood tests or clinical examination.
Following massive weight loss, there is usually a combination of skin and volume excess.
Regardless of the cause, this condition causes men a great deal of embarrassment. Many report they forego swimming and sunbathing to avoid taking their shirts off. Older boys may even play truant rather than subject themselves to physical education classes if they are required to shower afterwards.
No amount of exercise or diet will solve the problem. By removing the excess tissue, surgery can permanently restore a normal appearance.
