Gynecomastia, or oversized male breasts, is not at all uncommon in young men. The condition is attributed to an imbalance of hormones, meaning that it can sometimes be a short-lived problem. In these cases, males experience an unnatural estrogen-testosterone balance due to puberty. Symptoms may disappear in as little as a few weeks or could last for a few years.
There is a common misconception that gynecomastia symptoms can be erased with weight loss. Even those teens who modify their diet and exercise to lose weight may be left with excess breast tissue afterwards. This problem cannot be addressed by exercise and requires plastic surgery.

For men, choosing to undergo male plastic surgery is a major decision that can have a profound impact on your life. Male plastic surgery is extremely common with over 1.25 million male cosmetic procedures performed in 2012, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recent study.
