Gynaecomastia is an increase of glandular tissue in the breast of males, caused due to alteration in levels or imbalance between the female hormone (estrogen – which is also produced in males though in a very small amount) and the male hormone (testosterone). This causes enlargement of breast size in males and can involve either one breast or both breasts, which may not always be even.
All those who are interested in having Gynaecomastia surgery in Gurgaon should know that new-borns, adolescent boys and older men can develop gynaecomastia due to normal alteration of hormone levels, which occurs as a normal phenomenon as the body transforms from one stage of life to another; hence these types are also called as physiological gynaecomastia.
