Gynecomastia is a condition where a male patient’s chest tissue becomes enlarged to the point of creating a breast-like appearance. While harmless, this issue can be a source of anxiety.

In many instances, however, the best solution is a surgical procedure that removes the excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue.
