Panacea’s Competence in Diverse Plastic Surgeries like Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a term used to refer to the unusual enhancement of female-like breasts in males, mostly owing to the hormonal imbalance or hereditary conditions, a disease or the overuse of certain drugs. Considering an ideal scenario, the male chest is firm, well shaped and muscular; however, at times it becomes fatty and begins to sag. This looks quite abnormal and leaves a person feeling embarrassed of his unhealthy and ill-shaped body structure. In medical terms, this enlargement is explained as the abnormal growth of huge mammary glands and exorbitant deposits of fat in males, ultimately taking the shape of enlarged breasts, similar to that of women.

This condition of over-enhanced breasts in men can occur at any point of time in life, regardless of age. In neonates (newborns), it can be due to the influence of mother’s female hormones or in teenage and elderly, it can result due to an illness or metabolic disorder or even because of the rampant obesity. It is undoubtedly a severe condition for anyone to handle as it can considerably mar the self esteem and confidence of a person with regard to his social standing. Although, it is definitely a cause for worry at a middle or older age bracket but fortunately, in most adolescent boys, it is expected to subside naturally within a few years time frame, provided it’s not due to obesity. 

As the advanced technology has for almost everything else, it has also evolved promising results in this domain as well. With medical science’s immense progress, gynecomastia surgery is now a possibility for resolving this problem.
