Gynecomastia is a medical condition where a man develops large, woman-like breasts. Usually, it happens because of the dense tissue under the breasts. In some cases, this can be accompanied by tenderness and pain in some people.
While gynecomastia might not be painful in some individuals, having woman-like breasts can seriously lower a man’s self-confidence. If this is a condition you’re struggling with, you may experience increased anxiety, stress, or depression because it affects how you look. You could withdraw from engaging in social activities.
Gynecomastia can’t go away with exercise. In fact, most men report that the condition worsens with exercise. The more the chest muscles strengthen with targeted movements, the more this makes the breasts protrude or look bigger.
The only solution to deal with gynecomastia is undergoing a surgical procedure that will remove the dense tissue under the breasts. UMass Memorial Medical Group team of experienced cosmetic surgeons can do this and re-sculpt your chest to obtain a flatter and firmer contour.
