During puberty many young men develop a condition known as Gynecomastia, or overdeveloped breast tissue in the chest. This condition, though not medically threatening, causes the chests of men to appear more feminine than that of other men and can create low self-esteem issues.
A good deal of men will out grow the condition, but for some the condition may remain with them for the rest of their lives, unless otherwise surgically treated. Gynecomastia is treated through Male Breast Reduction surgery in which the excess glandular tissue is removed, and occasionally excess skin and fat may also be removed as needed.
