Gynecomastia consists in the excessive development of the breast tissue in male. This condition may be the expression of an endocrine disease or simply an excessive development of breast adipose tissue. The consequent aesthetic defect may be difficult to accept and lead to low self-esteem and shame. Moreover, the patient could be considered unattractive due to the presence of a female character. Aesthetic surgery is able to treat this defect with minimal scarring.
