It’s always amazing to look through letters, e-mails, comments on ProduceTheDoctors.com and Facebook submissions from viewers. One particular topic that caught my attention was gynecomastia, or excess male breast tissue, submitted by CGlass00. We have discussed breast implants and reductions for women but never tackled the subject matter when it comes to men.
I was surprised to learn that up to 60 percent of pubertal boys have some degree of gynecomastia, and while in the majority of cases it diminishes away, roughly 30 percent of adolescent boys are left with some degree of the condition. Further research also revealed that with men who suffer from gynecomastia , no amount of diet or exercise can reduce the excess tissue. This information left me wondering: what treatment options are available?
A 15-year-old old boy, who suffers from gynecomastia, and his mom have the same question. We reached out to a doctor, who is an expert on the condition, and learned that there is indeed a solution!
Tune-in Monday to see the amazing procedure and results!
