The term gynecomastia comes from the Greek “gyne” which means “breasts as in women.”Gynecomastia is a benign increase in male breast resulting from hypertrophy or increased glandular breast parenchyma and accumulation deposit of subcutaneous fat. Gynecomastia can sometimes manifest secretion of small amounts of milk or a similar discharge. Statistically, one of three men who are younger than 40 years suffers from some degree of gynecomastia, and above the age of fifty almost half of men have enlarged male breasts.
Healthy patients with an objective expectation of a positive result of the procedure, with an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages are good candidates for submission to male breast reduction surgery.
