Gynecomastia or male boobs is a matter of serious concern and embarrassment among the males. This is because males can’t wear tight fit t-shirts and flaunt their bodies. They feel shy around women and are not able to concentrate on their work properly. Their self-confidence is lowered and they are not able to present themselves freely and confidently.
What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes breast tissue enlargement in men or boys after puberty. It happens when the balance of two hormones male and female hormones in your body is disturbed. If one has enlarged breasts because of fat deposits, he has a different condition called “pseudogynecomastia” which can be overcome by exercising and gymming.
Breasts aren’t a natural trait of males, they develop in females. However, in some males due to imbalance in the hormone levels, the breast tissues grow and the condition is called Gynecomastia surgery or male boobs.
Males’ bodies produce a hormone called testosterone, which affects their sexual growth during puberty. But males also produce some amount of estrogen, a hormone which ensures female sexual growth and development. Do you know? About Dr. Amit Gupta experience in Gynecomastia treatment in Delhi?

When a male is in puberty, there is a substantial amount of disturbance in the male and the female hormones, if this continues even after puberty, it will cause serious problems like Gynecomastia surgery.
