Raju grew up in a small town among people who were rather conservative. Being part of a religious family, visiting temples was a ritual practiced every day. Raju entered his teens, enjoying his school days and the playtime with his friends. It was a fun-filled life until Raju noticed the growth of breast tissue because of which he felt embarrassed. He could no more remove his shirt while going to the temple nor go to the local pond for bathing with his friends. He became a subject of ridicule. He kept silently suffering not knowing how to resolve it. He avoided friends, stopped going to the temple, and stayed at home most of the time.

Growth of breast tissue among boys and men is a matter of social embarrassment and result in psychological problems. Not many know the reasons for the growth and the treatment options available.


Wilfred grew up in a metropolitan city and used to hang out with his large gang of friends after college. While at a beach resort enjoying swimming in the sea he noticed that there was enlargement of the breast area. Some of his friends pointed it out and poked fun at him. He noticed that wearing sweatshirts during the gym class revealed the enlargement more. He felt a deep sense of shame and embarrassment. Wilfred stayed away from any recreation with friends, stopped going to the gym, and wore clothes that were not quite his style.

Gynecomastia or male breast enlargement is a disorder caused by the imbalance in hormones. Too much of estrogen and less testosterone is the main cause. But the good news is that it can be easily corrected through hormone therapy and through a simple surgery. Though some cases respond to treatment with Tamoxifen, others may require a surgery. From a psychological perspective, it is important to get treatment as early as possible before the boy suffers severe damage to his self-esteem.

With the right doctor to diagnose and plan the treatment, gynecomastia can be easily corrected. After ascertaining the amount of breast tissue, the doctor decides to have a combination of liposuction and direct excision of breast tissue, depending on the case. After treatment, the skin then contracts and the chest appears normal immediately and looks even better after some time. The procedure is done under anesthesia and takes about 2 hours with very minimal post-operative care.
