Gynecomastia is the enlargement of the male mammary tissue and is the most common breast disorder in men. At least 30% of men will be affected by it during their lifetime. Because gynecomastia causes anxiety, psychosocial discomfort, and fear of breast cancer, early diagnosis is important, and patients usually seek medical attention. Gynecomastia has been reported to cause an imbalance between estrogen and androgen action or an increased estrogen-androgen ratio due to increased estrogen production, decreased androgen production, or both.

Evaluation of gynecomastia must include a detailed history, clinical examination, specific blood tests, imaging, and tissue sampling. Individual treatment needs may range from simple sedation to medical treatment or even surgery. The main goal of any intervention is to relieve symptoms and rule out other etiologic factors.

Like tummy tuck surgery Gynecomastia also can consist of liposuction and lift both together.
