Male breast enlargement is a normal occurrence around the time of puberty. The slight enlargement of the firm kernel of breast tissue that is present directly under the nipple and areola (the dark skin around the nipple) generally only lasts one to two years and disappears into the mid to late teens. If it doesn’t disappear, or if male breast enlargement occurs at other times during life, it should be investigated by a physician to make sure there is no male breast cancer, testicular or other cancer, hormonal imbalance or other underlying illness. Some medications can have the same effect, and it can occur with anabolic steroid use. Enlarged male breasts can make a man feel extremely self-conscious.

The procedure to reduce male breasts may require the removal of just glandular tissue, or may require removal of breast glandular tissue and surrounding fat, and sometimes even glandular tissue, surrounding fat and loose skin. The goal is to give the man a normal-looking male chest, without the feminine appearance of breasts, chest skin sagging or unusual positioning of the areolae.
