Gynaecomastia is a medical term for enlarged breasts in a male. This condition can have profound psychological and social consequences for a man. Many men are  too embarrassed to seek treatment.

There are a number of causes of gynaecomastia. It is relatively common in young male teenagers due to normal hormonal imbalances during puberty, but often settles without treatment. Other causes include obesity, liver disease, abnormal hormonal problems, and the use of certain medications or anabolic steroids. These causes need to be excluded before undergoing surgery. The technique of male breast reduction usually involves liposuction through a surgical excision made at the edge of the areola.
