Do you have gynecomastia?

Healthy male patients with excess breast tissue or unwanted breast development who have no underlying breast disease.Men who desire improved physical and aesthetic appearance should have realistic expectations based on their condition and the procedure performed. You should meet with a board certified plastic surgeon to be able to get a formal diagnosis and to be able to decide on a course of treatment if necessary.

Do I have gyno?

I'm sorry to hear about the concerns you have regarding your chest wall.  Your  pictures are consistent with gynecomastia;  nonsurgical treatment is generally unpredictable. Surgical correction of gynecomastia surgery may be indicated;  in most cases, gynecomastia is treated with resection of the excess breast tissue; peripheral chest liposuction may also be helpful in some cases.

My best suggestion: when the time is right, seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you will be pleased with.

Then, communicate your goals, concerns, and questions. Learn about the pros/cons/risks/complications associated with surgery. Going through this process, you will be able to make an informed decision whether or not to proceed.

About Gynecomastia and Treatment

The male breast is composed of glandular tissue and fatty tissue. An excess in either type of tissue can cause the chest to take on the look of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia can affect men of all different body types.
According to official statistics, 36% of adult young men and 57% of older #adult men in the United States have this medical condition in one of the four grades.
About 200,000 to 3 million cases of #gynecomastia are being reported every single year. So if you have #breast #enlargement and you feel you're an exception, please understand that 1 in 3 young adult #men and 1 in 2 older adult men are just like you and have breast enlargement.

Several common factors can cause gynecomastia including excessive levels of #estrogen, natural #hormone changes, use of recreational drugs or alcohol, medications and their associated side effects, and, various health conditions. Also, there are different types of #gynecomastia.
There are three types of surgical #treatment #options available that treat gynecomastia. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will recommend the type best suited for you. The most important decision to be made before performing any surgical procedure is determining whether you are an ideal #candidate.

Do I have gynecomastia?

Thanks for your question. Based on your photos, it does appear that you do have gynecomastia. The good news is that you do not appear to be overweight at all and there are therefore some surgical options for you. I recommend you visit a board certified plastic surgeon with a parent or family member for a consultation. The surgeon will evaluate you and your medical history and determine the best way to approach your situation. He or she will likely recommend a combination of liposuction and breast tissue removal. I hope this was help and I wish you the best with your procedure. You appear to be an ideal candidate based on your photos.
