Over development of male breast is medically known as Gynecomastia, it happens due to an imbalance of hormones in men body that is Androgen and Estrogen. Male Breast enlargement, there could be an absolute increase in Estrogen hormone production, relatively decrease in Androgen production or a combination of both. Non-surgical treatment like diet, exercise and medication might be one, but in mostly cases it not an effective treatment because the patient haven’t required patience, perseverance & persistence for a long span of time and there is no medications properly approved by FDA . So Gynecomastia treatments have only one solutions that is surgery. It is recommended that every gynecomastia seeker consult only best Gynecomastia surgeon who has delivered best result surgeries for the same and also investigate other factors like clinic, equipment & technology and staff training.

Gynecomastia (American English) or gynaecomastia (British English) is the development of abnormally large breasts on men. The term comes from the Greek gyne meaning "woman" and mastos meaning "breast". The condition can occur physiologically in neonates, in adolescents, and in the elderly. In adolescent boys the condition is often a source of distress, but for the large majority of boys whose pubertal gynecomastia is not due to obesity, the breast development shrinks or disappears within a couple of years. The causes of common gynecomastia remain uncertain, although it has generally been attributed to an imbalance of sex hormones or the tissue responsiveness to them, A root cause is rarely determined for individual cases. Breast prominence can result from hypertrophy of either breast tissue or pectoral adipose tissue, and often a combination of the two. Breast prominence due solely to excessive adipose is often termed pseudogynecomastia. Treatment for gland-based gynecomastia is typically surgery, as gland tissue in adults is far less likely to resolve itself than in adolescents. Constitutional homoeopathic remedy is the most effective treatment.The well selected homoeopathic remedy on genetic bases have the ability to correct metabolic disorders and thus able to cure all the abnormal signs and symptoms in the body.One should visit to a classical homoeopath for this.Our constitutional remedy even can save us from all dreadful diseases .

Why do you have man breasts?

When boys go through puberty it is very common for them to develop gynecomastia (man boobs) due to the rapid change in hormones. When the hormone level stabilizes the gynecomastia will go away. So if you are an adolescent male, it may be embarrassing, but there is nothing to worry about. Gynecomastia can also be due to obesity or hormone problems. If you're obese, try to lose weight and they will revert to normal. If you are neither a teenager, nor obese and still have gynecomastia, you should consult with your doctor to determine what the cause is, and to get it treated.
